WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR MUSTER?

As you know, April 21 is a big day around here.

Muster is a time to look at the past, present and future.....not only to reflect and to celebrate the lives that connect us to one another. A gesture so simple in nature yet so lasting in spirit, Muster is the lasting impression every Aggie leaves with us; it reminds us of the greatness that lies within these walls, of the loyalty we possess, of the connection that binds us, and of the idea that every Aggie has a place of importance - whether they are present in flesh or spirit.

With that, FREEB!RDS is proud to participate by honoring fellow fanatic, Jennifer Lynn Drost (1977-2008). Here's how it works: On April 21, purchase a printed logo for just $1 in one of eight locations in the College Station and Dallas areas. We'll proudly display it in on our walls showing your support. In turn, we're donating that money to the Jennifer Lynn Drost Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund that has been set up. This is just one way that FREEB!RDS WORLD WORKS is giving back to our community.

The endowment is through The Association of Former Students at Texas A & M, and donations are tax deductible. All donations should be made payable to the "Jennifer Lynn Drost Endowment Memorial Scholarship Fund" and mailed to:

Texas Round Up 10K and Family Mile

April 5th in Austin


FREEB!RDS loves the healthy initiative Texas Round Up started by Governor Perry back in 2004 and wanted to get involved. We know our fanatics have been exercising and working hard all year and the big race is coming up soon. The Texas Round-Up 10K, 5K and Family Mile Race is held in Austin annually on the last Saturday in April. We will be there to help feed some of the runners and volunteers while we throw out some “high fives” to all who join us from around the state. Our food is healthy, fresh and made from scratch on a daily basis so we are a natural fit! Be sure to come say hi to Julie, our catering manager.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN...

The city of Houston has just been turned upside down. As most of you know, the Houston Rodeo has come to town and is here to stay from March 3-22 and we're part of the show. With arts & crafts, A-Lister musical performances, horse and livestock shows, and much, much more, this is one show that should not be missed.

With that, FREEB!RDs has prime real estate on restaurant row, ready to roll you your favorite Monster or to Grab 'N Go on the fly. We'll be from open to close for the next few weeks, so be sure and stop by on your way in or out of the big show.

Peace. Love. Burritos.

LARGER THAN LIFE

The man behind "The Bird."

Ever wonder who that amazing artist is behind the great FREEB!RDs murals, hanging guitars, Libby waving her burritos or hidden VW buses that greet you around the bend? Well I had the great opportunity to meet long time artist, Lynn Wilkerson, during the final days of painting the soon-to-open Bunker Hill location. Kind, smart and a soulful way about him, Lynn clearly knows what he's doing. Armed with paints, scaffolding and a team of apprentice painters, he has ideas that come to life in each new location. If anyone, he can tell you that "it's been a long strange trip!"
