I lived near the Grape for a while. No one I know has ever eaten that burger. It's like a unicorn. Only known to forest ferries and TX Monthly.

Everyone has been pleasantly surprised with Swoopes.
The gameplan has been very conservative though. We'll see, but IMO it's pretty clear he's better than "overthrow" Ash....

Yeah, I don't "get" how most of the UK populace is o.k. with subsidizing the royals with tax $$.
Then again, we finance bankers' yachts and mansions here in the U.S. too so guess it's not that different....

Same thing here. Almost zero fear of heights as a kid. Now I get real skiddish near the edge of a roof, cliff etc.
It just slowly grew over the years. Flying has never bothered me unless shite gets rough near landing or heavy turbulence....

I have nothing against sport bike owners. I just really question the point of having one. The sole purpose is to go incredibly fast but there's nowhere to do it legally.
And, as mentioned, you must have a deathwish going that fast with people texting, etc. in their car these days.

Rotel and velveeta queso was frickin invented in Texas. I don't know anyone who doesn't use velveeta.
Sometimes we use a small can of Serranos and canned tomatoes instead of rotel. It's a nice twist....

Rainey street is the cool place now. Basically an old residential area they turned into a street of bars and foodtrucks. Overpriced and hipster-cool but that's just Austin nowadays.
Avoid 6th street.. it's just gotten worse and worse....
