ON MY WAISTLINE. From the hops at our hometown microbrewery to the Big Tex Choice Awards feature food samples, and from the nights at Ocean Prime and Savor Gastropub to a heaping helping of Babe's Chicken, it was a contest between desire and temperance. (Desire won, for the record.) Every day came the refrain - well now I'm starving. But that's the thing. Moderation is for monks, and food is life. Or life is food. Something like that. There are too may clichés about living to eat or eating to live and quite frankly, after all the samples and hops, the editorial staff is more in the mood for a nap than for cleaning up my prose. Let me just say this, Frisco: October is going to be a delicious month. Settle in and take a bite.

F O R T H E L O V E O F F R I E D C H I C K E N HOW TWO UNLIKELY NORTH TEXAS STARS ARE TRYING TO BRING FAMILIES TOGETHER

NORTH TEXAS RESTAURATEUR PAUL VINYARD AND CONSERVATIVE TALK SHOW STAR GLENN BECK HAVE AT LEAST ONE THING IN COMMON OUTSIDE OF CONSERVATIVE POLITICS – A LOVE OF FRIED CHICKEN. And though it may sound a little odd to anyone who hasn’t watched Beck evolve over two decades or who hasn’t set foot inside a Babe’s Chicken, the two men share something else – a desire to bring people together.

Frisco Life | October 2018


Beck, of course, has been known as a conservative firebrand who stoked the partisan fires with the best of them on his Fox News show and later with the Glenn Beck Program and TheBlaze TV Network. But he’s also been someone not afraid to go against the conventional tides when his principles and faith called him to. At the height of the Tea Party movement years, he pivoted with a massive Washington DC rally that called on people to lower the volume and rancor of political discourse. During the second Obama term, while many conservatives were understandably growing more concerned about illegal immigration, Beck started a movement to provide support for unaccompanied minors who were crossing the border. He was famously a Never-Trumper even as it cost him audience support. And while today Beck is still as sharp of tongue as ever on his program talking center right politics, he’s also a man who founded Mercury One, a nonprofit foundation based in Dallas, Texas and a Humanitarian Aid and Education organization focused on restoring Paul Vinyard and Glenn Beck

the human spirit. Mercury One provides aid and support in the areas of disaster relief, humanitarian efforts, veteran causes, support for Israel, education initiatives, and rescuing and restoring persecuted religious minorities in the Middle East. Mercury One’s The Nazarene Fund has directly assisted over 30,000 Christian and other persecuted religious minorities displaced by ISIS in the Middle East by evacuating them to safe havens and providing for their needs. Beck’s Mercury Studios in Irving are a sight to see. It’s billed as the biggest TV and movie studio between New York and Hollywood, with props and memorabilia from the golden age of radio and TV spread amongst high-tech broadcast studios and a working newsroom. And yet despite all the

FOR THE LOVE OF FRIED CHICKEN

(CON TI N UED)

across as warm and earnest. It’s the honesty of 20-years of sobriety. Sitting on a couch in his Mercury Studios in Irving, dressed in a Western denim shirt, Beck carries a hopeful twinkle in his eye even as he laments the state of politics today. “I think in 20 years people on both sides are going to be embarrassed,” Beck says. But he hopes that people can start to find

common ground despite their political differences, and that there can be a return to old-fashioned civility on all sides. Turns out that spirit of bringing people together is probably what brought Beck and Vinyard together. Well, that and the fried chicken. “We had been followers of Glenn when he was in New York,” says Vinyard in his deep West Texas accent. “When he moved down here in 2011 there was a gentleman who invited us out to the studio. Glenn had eaten at the Babe’s Chicken in Roanoke, and we wanted to get to know him better.” Vinyard’s restaurant company, which he started in 1981 with his late wife and is still run by the family, now has nine Babe’s Chicken locations (Babe was Mary Beth’s nickname), one Bubba’s (it’s Paul’s nickname) with another on the way, and one Sweetie Pie’s Ribeyes and another on the way. “We have a learned a tremendous amount about politics and world history from Glenn. We learned about his Mercury One foundation, and we were moved by the good work they do with that and the Nazarene Fund,” Vinyard says. “We became consistent supporters he eventually broadcast one of his shows from our Babe’s in Cedar Hill.” Vinyard sees his Babe’s concept as a replacement for the kinds of family gettogethers and reunions that he grew up with in West Texas.

“It’s so often hard for folks to get together these days,” Vinyard says. “In my day everyone came from 50-100 miles away, and the women all brought food and the kids played in the park. The men would get together and talk and so would the women – we would do that two or three times a year. But it’s increasingly difficult for people to do that. They’re more spread out. There’s less land or they have smaller homes or apartments." “That’s why we have the big tables at Babe’s – we want to accommodate two or three generations of families. Maybe the music is a little loud and the kids are playing around,” he says. “Most modern restaurants The Guest that Won't Leave

like to do a twist on cooking, and it’s chefdriven and that’s great. But our goal is to do your grandmother’s cooking just right. We stole the recipe from my mother. It’s just small batches done over and over throughout the day – the hot chicken concept.” Vinyard and Beck are aware of the backlash that can happen when politics and business mix. The Vinyard family is a contributor to the non-profit that Beck runs. And given that it’s about bringing people together, whether for charity or over hot chicken, maybe that’s the first step in bringing together the American family. And who doesn’t love fried chicken?

EN FRANKLIN NEVER ACTUALLY SAID, “BEER IS PROOF THAT GOD LOVES US AND WANTS US

TO

BUT

HAPPY”

CERTAINLY

SHOULD HAVE. At Tupps Brewery in McKinney, they take it a little farther: They believe beer is the perfect blend of art and science. They start with the art of beer – a big dose of creativity - and then they validate it with empirical observation: with their expert eye to judge the look, their noses to refine the smell and then with their palate to validate the taste. They embrace tradition but break the rules as well from time to time to create exciting new brews. A few to try? Glad you asked. The American Wheat is brewed with wheat, citrus, coriander, and California ale yeast. This is a killer, crisp and refreshing year-round brew. There's also the the TIPPS IPA, an India Pale Ale brewed with Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic Hops. Bursting with tropical aromas, this IPA is loaded with citrus and fruit-forward hops. The big one they're rolling out this month is the McKinney Oktoberfest. Inspired by classic Munich Oktoberfest beers, but with the spirit of Texas craft, this ale brings a roasted flavor while remaining drinkable. Take three cans, fill your stein, and strap on your lederhosen...it's time to chicken dance. TUPPS is located in the historic Cotton Mill in McKinney. Check their calendar for live music nights and Crit races, or even book a tour at tuppsbrewery.com. The American Wheat is perfect year-round. October 2018 | Frisco Life

PARTING THOUGHTS

Mayor Jeff Cheney

of the future development of Frisco. The Fields family owned the 2,544 acres since the 1950s and has used it for ranch land. When

mayor’s musings

Bert Fields Jr. passed away in 2015, he had no heirs and the estate decided to sell the land. Most properties of this size and value would be split into multiple tracts and parceled off to the highest bidders with little concern for the future of the land. I am heartened on the announcement of the sale. The Hunt family is a trusted name and has brought other reputable partners to the table to purchase the land in its entirety. One of the internationally-recognized partners is Fehmi Karahan. Hunt chose Fehmi, the Legacy Shops and Legacy West visionary developer, to co-master develop. Hunt and Fehmi both appreciate and are humbled at the
