what happened to Matts

Well, to be honest, it sounds exactly like the way it has always been!

Ha - as I said to a gay guy once...he asked, "are you gay?" I said "not really." He was quite confused. And I;m not really gay, BTW.

Slowcook - I'll provide you with your tube meat fix. (Sorry, I could not resist).

El Pollo Regio / El Pollo Rico spice rub

I don't sense lime in the mix, but my taste might be off. . Also, that green sauce will keep for a while for some reason. Like a month! I did use El Regio sauce the time that I made the chicken at home.

Yep Rp - that would have been a better choice (Stiles), but we were in the area.....and also had to be somewhere else central....

That's funny - you are revealing many "secrets" today. So have I, I guess.....

Maybe all Costcos are not the same. And yeah, that's where I bought them to split with my daughter. I was not clear before about the cafe area.

El Pollo Regio / El Pollo Rico spice rub

Troy - I've tried a number of times....the last time I got real damn close. Unfortunately, I don't write anything down, but it consisted of salt, hot paprika, orange juice, achiote paste, a little bit of garlic, and maybe one or two other things. Marinated for a while, and then grilled leg quarters over charcoal. Actually, I thought that my concoction was better. I can't figure out that green sauce, though.

Oh, I did not realize that it was a chain.....I can't even remember the name of it, but the sign made me think that it was a local place.

That's weird, I didn't even start going to Costco till about 5 years ago. I could swear that, at least about a year ago, they were still advertising HN. You probably know better than me....and that may explain why they aren't quite as good.

Oh, my first thought was that it was a "40 Shades of Grey" reference.

Yeh, it was cold the other day, and afriend and I were trying to eat BBQ - Franlin was out at 1 PM, Micklewaithe is only a trailer (no bathroom, and she had to go), we went to another trailer, and finally, I said "screw it, let's just go to Green Mesquite." Not that I'm recommending that place, but it was better than I remember and the inside comforts me in some weird way. Amysue, I almost got the wings, but didn't.

Not surprised that trailers need to make a business decision, however, when it is sleeting sideways.....some don't have phones or update their sites that often.

Ha - I had to check your history to make sure that you were not her, Sunny - She's in Santa Clarita. But I will do that. We spent a couple of weekends there, Thanksgiving, and Christmas together....I was able to cook several times. She keeps sending me pics of short ribs, stews and desserts that she cook - driving me nuts!

Weekend in Austin

Tim and Troy - I was also going to mention the Chili Parlor since it would be a good place to get a drink and a snack prior to going further. I would recommend that - Uchiko is also not that far away from the Doubletree and potentially dissected from downtown.

The Burnet #3 bus picks up right near Doubletree and will deposit one downtown with a straight shot. That would get a person to Wink - they're lot is small.

Atruro's is a good idea - I actually forgot about that place. Olemaie is also w/in walking distance.

But if you really want to have fun, go to Charlie's near the Capitol. I'm not gay, but it is a fun gay bar. One could tie that to the Cloak Room on the same block - funky little spot that's in a basement. The Cloak Room has one hell of a jukebox that's not that expensive!

I got one the other day, tim. The 7-11 dawgs are much better than the salt bombs at Sonic.

Yeah, slowcooked, I get something from the Lowe's trailer every time I go there, and I also love that hot link.

Funny, Costco has Hebrew National (HN), but it seems, to me, that HN has declined somewhat. Cheap, though, and if one is already at Costco....

I still haven't been to Nathan's on Burnet, surprisingly

There is a YABB in the old Hilbert's on Burnet, close to Greenlawn. Anybody been?

Immediate and Urgent Need

Thanks for all the responses - yes, we went to G'Raj Mahal and then walked over to 6th street to see a good band. Stayed in a hotel to be safe....her and I both liked each other in high school, but we never even kissed or dated. We both played trumpet in band, and she sat next to me back then.

We just ordered two items, and they were both yummy. We did have fun walking around that area. I still haven't been to 24 diner, Rptrane.

Hairylegs - yes, she has some cleavage and a small dog, but not a mexican hairless (how did you know that?).. The main things are that she's sweet and strong at the same time and I really like her family. We've finally kissed after 28 years! To bad she's 1415 miles away. Feels good to have a crush, though. It's been a while.

My HS girl is arriving at 8:20 - I'm thinking of Ra Majal. Can you bastards help me soon with a plan for tonight? I'm thinking food, a little music, an so on.

What Austin really needs

If you are ever in Wichita, KS, there's a very good Malay restaurant. Excellent Nasi Lemak. I had work there for a while, and went frequently. I have a Malaysian friend that worked with me in Austin that would bring home cooked food to work - sooo lucky for me. I want to go to Malaysia just to eat!

Just what I figured - mask yourself in hyperbole and the thesaurus. I bet you've never eaten crickets. All in good fun btw ;-)

Oh wow, I never knew that. From what I've sensed, it was a way to get protein during times where there was no other way. When in Oaxaca, the old ladies had three different sizes - I only ate the smallest size, which was stir-fried in chile and lime and salt. Once I got over the original hang-up, they were yummy.

I ate plenty of crickets in Oaxaca. Does anyone serve Chapulines in Austin? I doubt it.

I've also experienced crickets after telling jokes.

Kids' Menus

Well, they typically just ate off of the adults' plates. But they are getting bigger. My 6.9 YO daughter has a wonderful palate - gorgonzola, olives, charcuterie, really almost anything. My jackass 4.5 YO son prefers to play rather than to eat, but he isn't predisposed to any typical kid's food other than ramens and a copious amount of candy.

I do really like the comedic tone of the lilbuco link.

The best thing that I've found is savory weekend dim sum, where we all share....

Especially the "observe only" items......my theory with sauce it that it should always leave you wanting - Abbrev's carries that concept wonderfully.

Weekend in Austin

OMFG! I had too many tabs open.....I thought that I was looking at that joke restaurant, and I was laughing out loud. I got to the end, and then realized that it was Odd Ducks' brunch menu.

The $12 waffle with bacon, pear butter, foie gras cream, and hot sauce got me laughing.

Corn Dog - chorizo verde, fried egg foam, chile maple.....funny.

Omelette - caviar, bone marrow, creme, and potato strings....hilarious.

I'm sure it's all good, but that's what happened to me this afternoon!

Special restaurant for a 21st Birthday celebration

Where do they normally go? Are cocktails in order for the 21 year old? I assume that you will have a vehicle, but where are you staying? Its fun to ride the train and go to Rainey Street.
