We love a great event. We love to support great causes here in Amarillo. Now if it is a cause that also is encouraging us to be a slacker we are all in. That brings us to this years Slack a Thon.

This is the 4th Annual Slack a Thon all to benefit Martha's Home. The Slack a Thon is back and better than ever. It will be taking place this Saturday, June 19th.They are moving to a new location. This year it will be out at Starlight Ranch - 1415 Sunrise Drive. With the change in location that means they can even follow up the "race" with a concert.

This is the ultimate race for those of us that want to support a good cause but we really don't want to run anywhere. I mean we don't want to break a sweat. We don't want to go the distance anywhere. This is perfect. It is a .5 mile run. You read that right. There is a point in front of that five.

What a perfect little race. Oh there will also be pizza. Who can't get behind a race that involves pizza. The gates open at 5pm. There will also be an after party with live music. The music will be Forever Mac Tribute Concert. So who doesn't love Fleetwood Mac on top of it.

So make your plans because your ticket to get into the race and all the Slack a Thon stuff will also get you into the concert. This is what I call a win win situation.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
