We have been very busy the last few weeks!

Rudy Mikeska's was fortunate to have served the Zimmerhanzel and Altman families with one of the most prestigious weddings Central Texas has ever seen. We will dedicate the next update with full coverage of this extraordinary wedding. Our fall and winter bookings have been staggering. We have over 10 closed dates in the months of November and December. This next Saturday, we will catering for over 2,000 guests at the Texas Heritage March on the grounds of the State Capitol in Austin. We have also been asked to serve several events related to the COMDEX show in Las Vegas. Last week I received some magazines from my Los Angeles friend....Rex Hoover (Majestic Realty), featuring an article on "Texas Barbecue". Rudy Mikeska's was featured in the United Airlines September 2000 Hemispheres Magazine.

Thanks to United Airlines and writers:
Paris Permenter and John Bigley!

Once a Duck..... Always a Duck !!!!

The beautiful brown haired woman in the middle is my wife Candy (class of 1980)
To her left in her brother Jim (class of 1985) and the man sitting in front of them is their father Moe (class of 1950) They celebrated their 20, 15 and 50 year reunions respectfully.

This is a picture of the Prime Rib we served at the Zimmerhanzel - Altman wedding last Saturday. The brides parents, Jamie and Pete Zimmerhanzel were partners in the famous Taylor Meat Company. A local meat processing plant and retail market with 50+ years of quality service to thousands of customers in Texas. Pete Zimmerhanzel knows quality meat!! He provided some of the greatest beef I have ever seen. Next update will include additional coverage of this event.

This is just a "teaser" of some of the decor and appointments.
