Best Pie

Why, yes you did. I was the blonde in the Jester King t-shirt and straw hat with a sea shell band on it.

Best Pie

I was at the Wine and Swine festival and had the best apple pie I've ever had from Royer's Pie Haven.

He says he makes the best fried chicken, too. I'll have to give that a try very soon.

Azul Tequilla on Dry Creek

If you've been to the south one, the food is the same. Quite good and prices are reasonable.

However, as with all the last incarnations at this site, it's a total "Romper Room." Many parents imbibing and ignoring their little monsters, making it difficult to have a normal conversation.

That aside, the mole was rich and chocolate-y, verde more chile than tomatillo, asada was moist.

Maybe try again on a nice day and sit outside where the screeching isn't as bone-jarring.

M. Odom's take on Dai Due

I've tried several things when they were at the farmer's market and fund everything just meh and on the expensive side. Haven't tried the b&m for that reason.

Where to get good smoked turkey?

Green Mesquite on Barton Springs has a sign outside that says they'll smoke yours for you.

One more time! Weird shirts, merch, coffee, doughnuts, meat, and booze in Austin, go!

Tried to give my bike for the visit, but couldn't get in touch with either. Hope it didn't detract from the trip.

Where to get good smoked turkey?

Ran into the same thing. Whole family is coming in and mom said, "No smoked turkey. Tastes like lunch meat. So, I guess I'm cooking for 16 and transporting the whole meal across town....goodie....

RB didn't make it to lunch yesterday, and I'm having a hard time contacting him. I'll take the bike to work tomorrow. Email me:

You're leaving Austin for good, take one taco with you and tell us why.

Called and got no answer. Guess it's just us three. I'm wearing a blue tie-dye and driving the truck today (cuz I thought I was delivering the bike to RB).

Do y'all think we can get a table inside if we go to RoS at 12:15?

How about Blackbird and Henry at 12:15? I've never been and the grilled cheese sounds like the perfect dish today.

Republic of Sandwich or Roland's would be my second choice.

RB, bringing my bike for you.

RB, give you my bike tomorrow. Do I need to bring a pump or do you have one that hooks to the bike?

I'm good, but have a lot to do tomorrow, so I'd prefer Central to North/Northwest.

RB, when we have lunch Wed, do you have a car that can transport my bike?

Soup Peddler Austin

I think their seafood soups and potato leek soup are the only ones I thought were good.

If you need two bikes, you can use mine as well. I live fairly close to RB and can drop it by, as long as your vaca starts after this weekend.

What about going to Gingerman for a beer or two? It's been around forever (though, not at that location - but did a great job recreating the ambiance) and has an amazing beer selection and a really cool old school Austin vibe.

Not better or worse, just different. Easy Tiger is more of a patio, Bangers is a back yard. Wouldn't go wrong with either one - food's better at ET, beer selection is better at B.

Bangers has a great beer garden. Go in for a beer and drink in the atmosphere of the "new Austin".

I've been dying to try the make-your-own sangria at Tapas Bravas right there. I've had some of their tapas and quite enjoyed them.

If you get a bike, why not go out to Live Oak BBQ?

Sad Day...

But it won't be "Dog and Duck." It'll be a new hipster bar trying to be retro on the east side.

Sad Day...

As I was when Les Amis was torn down for a soulless strip mall, so goes Dog and Duck at the end of the month for "new development". Goodbye Austin, hello Generica.

Bryce Gilmore coming to B. Rd.

If that happens, that little block of land will be quite the destination for good grub with the other three just down the block.
