The annual Cowboy Breakfast may have been reconfigured this year as a private event due to the pandemic, but local venue Smoke BBQ+Skybar is holding a free public alternative, COVID-19 be damned.

The outdoor venue used social media to share details of its first annual Kegs & Eggs event, which will take place this weekend. The barbecue restaurant is holding the gathering as roughly 50 Texas hospitals report that their ICUs are at or above capacity.

The event will include giveaways of tacos, breakfast sandwiches, juice and milk, and — in true Cowboy Breakfast-inspired fashion — will begin bright and early at 8 a.m.

Smoke, located at 501 E Crockett St., will also feature live music, all-day drink specials and a mechanical bull at the event.

The Current reached out to Smoke's owner to inquire about capacity restrictions and safety policies. So far, it's received no response.
