Congratulations, Austin, You Failed Questlove

Hip hop drummer/DJ Questlove of The Roots is in Austin to DJ a set at Red 7 tonight and thought he might grab some barbecue while he was in town, as many visitors to our fair city do. Unfortunately, after he tweeted a question about the über-popular Franklin Barbecue, no one bothered to tell him that if you get there after lunch, you're pretty much up the creek without any brisket.

He was not happy: "Damnit. What good is this network if you cats in Austin don't warn me Franklin's closes when they run outta grub?!" Although we suppose it's some comfort that it's even difficult for famous people to get some of Franklin's smoked meats before they close, that's also not any way to treat a guest.
