Cowboy Barbecue Cookouts

Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa’s cowboy cookouts in Santa Fe look like a wild west way to spend holiday Sundays this summer 2012.  These are real YeeeeeeeHa! cowboy cookouts on a Santa Fe mesa top with live music and dancing, barbecue and all the fixin’s, and kids eat half price or free depending on age…

I’ve visited this resort property, including a ride up to the mesa top where they hold the cowboy cookout, and it’s a sweet spot with mighty purty views – should be a good vantage point to admire the sunset while kicking up your heels.

The Bishop’s Lodge cowboy cookout includes a full gourmet barbeque catered by the resort’s Las Fuentes Restaurant & Bar, with steaks, ribs, burgers, and brats, plus live country western music and dancing.  The first one is on May 27, 2012.

The price isn’t bad for dinner and entertainment: $39.95 per person, with discounts for seniors ($34.95), under 18’s ($19.95) and it’s free for kids under 5.

These are the summer 2012 dates – book in advance as they can fill fast.  All cookouts start at 6 pm.

  • May 27 at 6 pm for Memorial Day weekend
  • June 17 at 6 pm for Father’s Day weekend
  • July 1 at 6 pm for Independence Day weekend

Although Bishop’s Lodge is set is a quiet spot in the Tesuque Valley surrounded by Santa Fe National Forest, it’s only about a 5 minute drive from Santa Fe Plaza. (I’ve timed it!). Here’s the map and directions to Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa.
