F1 German GP Watch Party Fun at Wild Bubba’s

Today, Wild Bubba’s Wild Game Grill hosted a Formula 1 Watch Party to enjoy the German Grand Prix of Nurburgring.

I motored up from San Antonio, TX to Elroy,TX – almost 90 miles away.  It’s just about 3 miles south of the Austin Bergstrom International Airport.  Before I arrived I went off to the side road of Piland Triangle.  This is less than 1 mile from Wild Bubba’s location.  Here are the mid-morning shots I took.

The above is a panorama shot I made, showing the location of the pit straight going up to turn 1.  Click the image 2 different times for the best detail…

Below is a construction view (albeit, from a distance) of one of the tunnels.  This one is under the beginning uphill approach to turn 1.

This is the view from the “right angle” of Piland Triangle.  This image will change significantly, I’m sure, within the coming year!

Arriving at Wild Bubba’s I saw the new, inviting signage – SO much better now!

Quite a good number of people showed up to Wild Bubba’s F1 Race Watching Party.  You can see just a few of the fans’ cars parked out front.

Once inside, the crowd of 30 or more Formula 1 race fans gathered to enjoy the 2011 German Formula 1 race.  Wild Bubba & friends had set up 2 good-sized LCD monitors, along with a nice audio system to best appreciate the racing action broadcast on the Fox Network.

Now, if you have not yet visited Wild Bubba’s Wild Game Grill, you are in for a surprise regarding the menu.  The key words here are: Wild Game!  Go ahead & review to pre-order -there is definitely no lack of variety!

In addition, Wild Bubba’s has just received its beer license.  To celebrate, you can see the great variety of German & German-style beers that are available.  Thirsty yet?

 Of course we all know that beer isn’t bought, but you only rent it.  So, with that in mind, I think this is one of the best directional signs in the place!

There are other lunch-type eateries popping up in Elroy.  But Wild Bubba’s has been around awhile.  Don’t be fooled, there are NO imitations.  This is the eating place of choice for the COTA (Circuit of The Americas) construction crew, I’m told.

Let’s not forget to wish Lewis Hamilton congratulations on his Formula 1 win today!
