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.

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

I thought they weren't open on the weekends.

Staying 10/30 - 11/2

I'm actually staying at MdV. Should I make that one of my meals?

Just finished a Sonora HD pineapple agua fresca. Nom-nom-nom.

I've been to Freedman's. I put it in the "new hipster restaurant" category (along with Yellow Jacket and a few others). Good, but not great; still have that younger palette - lots of fat, no real flavor.

An hour flat unless on Wednesdays or if we can find some competent help...

I can go anywhere on Wednesdays.

What Happened to Sonora Hot Dog?!!!!

How did I drive up and completely miss it?

cooking for your dog

My 15 year old standard Dachshund came down with black skin disease
and this recipe not only took care of that, it got his weight to perfect and he pooped less.

1 tube ground beef or turkey (1 lb)
2 cups oatmeal (plus water according to directions)
1 can pumpkin
green veggies (green beans, broccoli, kale, spinach)
2 carrots chopped
1 large can tuna in water
3 hard boiled eggs smooshed into bits WITH shells
a little garlic powder

Brown meat in pan, set aside. Use same pan and cook oatmeal to directions, but not for as long. Add everything else to pan and mix.

This makes enough for both dogs, 1/2 cup servings twice daily for three or so days.

You can mix it up by adding berries, fruit or changing out the meats/veggies.

Eloping in Austin. Where should we eat after our wedding?

Agreed! HotB would be perfect. I like the quail ceasar salad and the pheasant egg rolls. Hot and crunchy trout is also excellent (and a major pain in the ass to make at home). Wild Turtle for dessert. (or if they have the fruitcake - I know, but trust me). Don't they have a private little cove for two?

...wish I had done that...

"slowed down"...

Training for college. They're trying to ween you, my dear. You need to learn how to put on your poker face when that sweet boy from Dorm C "splurges" and takes you to Applebee's...

My first "date" with my husband was the Taco Bell on campus. He still thinks that's a treat (mostly because it's so rare I agree).

ACL food

It's right at the creek. From what I could see, it basically has the same trucks that are on 360 in Westlake. Icehous, Tapas Bravas...

It's the orange hot sauce that makes it. But, yes. It's just queso.

Sawyer and Company Diner

We went after our track time with our new zippy WRX.

Our server needed more training. She didn't come see us for 10 minutes, brought out only one water, then disappeared again. Forgot silverware when she brought us our meals, forgot the potatoes (then forgot whether they were an option - even though when she was taking the order asked if I wanted grits or potato)...She was nice, just flaky.

They were only serving brunch. Was pretty good. Gumbo could have used more spice and husband had an unfortunate bite of roux-ball, but the flavors were solid and the chicken was moist (unlike the overcooked chicken that seems to happen in gumbos). Boudin was okay, and we got the last serving, came with some pickles and mustard and was pretty close to what I'd expect. Low point was my eggs sardou. Eggs weren't runny (more soft boiled) and the spinach/artichoke cream was on the bland side.

Love the space, though. We'll give it another try on the next track day.

Speaking of that area, I saw a place that tickled my memory. Jacoby or something like that??? Right down the street from S&C.

food truck face off

Watched it a few days ago. RB and I were shown very briefly a couple of times. We were second in line at the Indian truck, he in a light blue shirt and me in a green sundress. We were shown, again briefly, shaking hands with the guy from the other food truck (we had just had a conversation that we picked the wrong trailer).

RB can correct me because he knew the folks behind us, but she was the producer or some such. She was the red head that had the most "commentary" on the food.

I thought the show itself was pretty horrible, cheesy. I knew "reality" tv was anything but. However, this was just disappointingly so.

Ooohhhh. Not so. I work outside all day on a tarmac and didn't think I needed "extra protection". I was more cooked than I had been in many years.

Still, a good time catching up with RB.

Watched the Congress episode last night. RB and I are second in line in the crowd shot (he's got a bright blue shirt on and I'm wearing a blue/green sundress), but that's all there is of any Chowhounders.

Show was really cheesy...
