Just Ask Chows Down at Houston Roller Derby Chili Cook-Off

Reggie Bibbs playing innocent like he wasn’t responsible for eating all those chili samples in front of him. You could have saved some for the rest of us!

The Just Ask Tour rolled into the Cottonwood Restaurant in Houston, TX today to help support one of our biggest supporters, the Pysch Ward Sirens and the Houston Roller Derby!

Today, Reggie and I sampled some of the best chili in the history of Psych Ward Sirens Annual Chili Cook-Off!

It was so great seeing our old friends and meeting new ones! One of the great things about driving around the country promoting awareness of neurofibromatosis is meeting all of the wonderful, compassionate people who come up to just ask us about NF.

It was so nice to see former skater and new mom, Laurentina Marquardt at the cook-off with her two-month old baby! Congratulations!!!

Had a lot of fun with the guys at the Derby Brothers Booth! We didn’t stay till the end but it would be my guess that these guys won again, for like the sixth straight year!

Our best buddy, Misty “Mistilla the Killa” Moody was there to greet us and talk for a bit! Mistilla is one of the original founding members of the Houston Roller Derby.

“Hard to Prounounce” – Our newest ad to promote awareness of neurofibromatosis

new Just Ask ad promoting neurofibromatosis awareness
JustAskFoundation.org

In preparation for our Just Ask World Tour promoting awareness of neurofibromatosis, we are preparing special ads that we will send to the newspapers of the cities we are about to visit to see if they would run them as a Public Service Announcement (meaning for FREE!) while we are in town or afterward as a reminder or before as a teaser.

We have a bunch of really cool headlines but this is, by far, my favorite!

If anyone would like copies of the ads to try to get your local newspapers to run them, I would be happy to supply the files. Like Reggie says, Just Ask!

 

For more medical type definition of neurofibromatosis, I like the Mayo Clinic description best: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/neurofibromatosis/basics/definition/con-20027728

Just Ask us about Saltgrass Steak House!

imageToday, Reggie and I went to Saltgrass Steak House, in Meyerland Center, and were treated like visiting Royalty! There were at least 20 people waiting but they seated us immediately!

The Meyerland Saltgrass has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Houston because they are just great…fun, caring people who are super attentive and go above and beyond in making you feel at home!

Our waitress today was Caitlyn who was just terrific! Thank you, everyone! And the food was outstanding, too!

Reggie Bibbs & His Dorkchestra!

The guys came over to welcome Reggie back to town after hangin’ with his NF brethren in San Diego and Los Angeles.

It’s always great to see old friends like Mark Sansouci, William Hughes, John Person, Hayden West, Laura Wood, Mina Hughes and Matt Jones.

It’s been a while since we’ve done a Music Night and all agreed, it was long overdue! The boys and Laura were in fine form tonight.
