The Gaff Bar
What do you mean you’ve never seen a belt sander race? Well, in Texas, that’s a major gaff, because it means you’ve never been to the Gaff Bar in Port Aransas on alternating Saturdays to see the silliest thing you can do with a power tool, some beer, some friends and a sunny afternoon. Instead of smoothing out rough wood, these sanders – retrofitted for competition and safety – race for the title. Title of what, we don’t know, but hey, there’s beer. The Gaff is a chill bar where locals and not-so-locals mingle. Plus, there’s pizza and chicken bingo (which is not a dish, but another crazy competition… involving chickens… and bingo).
