We have been very busy the last few
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.

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.
