Folks in West Texas know where to ring in the New Year — at the annual Black-Eyed Pea Off in Terlingua. A tradition since 1990, this New Year’s Day party takes place at the Terlingua Ghost Town Porch. Cooks turn in their peas for judging at 2 p.m., and good food, live music, a cake walk and a hot date raffle follow. A $5 donation gets you a bowl, spoon and cornbread. Keep the party going afterward with a songwriters salute at the Starlight Theatre at 5 p.m.
