Last weekend was your chance to taste what some claim is the most delicious boiled shrimp in all of Texas — we’re talking about the annual Shrimp and Wine Fest. The festival treated guests to plenty of great food and drink on Saturday, November 12th at El Paseo de Santa Angela. The event took place from 4-8pm. Tickets proceeds went to the Home Builders Association of San Angelo.
For the cost of a ticket, each guest got a plate of delicious boiled shrimp prepared with special seasonings and spices. The shrimp came with corn, potatoes, sausage links and your choice of iced tea or sweet tea. The San Angelo Rotary Club who hosts the event understands that some folks keep busy on Saturdays, so to-go orders were available to accommodate those out and about.
As the name would suggest, the annual Shrimp and Wine fest includes a selection of wines for tasting and sipping along with your shrimp. However, the wine is not included in the price of the ticket and is sold separately.
The Home Builders Association of San Angelo put the profits toward their Operation FINALLY HOME program, a nonprofit project that brings experienced builders and suppliers together to build homes for injured or ill veterans and their families.
If you missed this year’s Shrimp and Wine Fest, look for details on next year’s event to try some of the tastiest seafood around.
