We've got food and fun in Kerr County, and we're ready to showcase the best of it here on The Lead Live during "Be Our Guest" week Oct. 17-21.

Think of this as a virtual taste test.

More importantly, it's a showcase and reminder of the wonderful food, drinks and fun available here in the Hill Country. We will also get a chance to meet the people behind it all.

Thanks to the Kerrville Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Museum of Western Art and Pint and Plow Brewing Co. It starts Oct. 17 and runs through Oct. 21. And if you're a Kerr County purveyor, and we'll include Comfort in that mix, we're inviting you to share with us some of your finest offerings thanks to the generous presenting sponsorship of the Kerrville Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Each segment is about five minutes long, and a copy of the segment will be made available.

That's right, it will all be streamed on The Lead Live! starting at 9 a.m. each day, and we'll go until we've had everyone on the show.

So, here's the plan:

We start our show on Monday with a discussion about the future of tourism in Kerr County. We'll have Kerrville Convention and Visitor Bureau President and CEO Julie Davis will lead a panel conversation about that topic.
