re: Anyone been to Grosse Savanne? - Badmug
I just took my dad over there for a three day trip this past April. As stated above, the highlight of our trip was the 500 acre lake. We caught more than 100 two to six pound largemouths in a couple of hours...all on topwaters. The morning before we checked in, a young rep from Hobie pulled a 12 ...

re: Need restaurant recommendations for Houston/Memorial City area - Badmug
Pour Society is now State of Grace and most definitely worth your time. If you want sushi Kuu next door is the way to go. Tons of great options right next door to that Westin. CityCentre is great for Eddie V's, Cyclone Anaya with the frozen drink sippers, and Flemings. If you want something truly u...

re: Need restaurant recommendations for Houston/Memorial City area - Badmug
Vallone's is immediately next door to the Westin. It's right up there with the very best steakhouses in town. They serve the best fried softshell crabs (off menu) you'll ever eat. Tony's meatballs are second to none. Excellent wine list and plenty of bourbons. ...

re: Need some Refrigerator Recommendations - Badmug
I brushed off the hate and purchased an LG six months ago. I couldn't be happier. Model LMXS30776S is a French door with a third custom chill drawer between the refrigerator and freezer. I use the door-in-door feature more than I thought I would. The LED lighting throughout is a nice touch. My ...

re: Favorite Decoy Brand - Badmug
I've got Dakotas and G&H's. I like the flocking on the Dakotas and the durability of the G&H's. They've got a couple seasons on them and still look really, really good. I'm not sure I can recommend one brand over the other but I would say both are top notch. They work. ...

re: Brazos River Cresting this evening. MAJOR flooding - Badmug
I moved to Simonton in 1978. Experienced the two floods in 1992 and 1994 as my family home was still located there. Very few people had flood insurance in 1992 and even fewer in 1994. Entirely too many houses had been built with blatant disregard for the deed restrictions regarding the 100 year f...

re: Galveston for a week - Badmug
As mentioned, Rudy & Paco's for a good dinner. Mario's on 61st Street for the best pizza and fettuccine alfredo. Everything in Galveston is as casual as you'd expect from a beach town. A half day of shopping down in the Strand District. Pleasure Pier on the Seawall. Best pool with swim up bar i...

re: Coffee aficionados--looking for product specific advice to up my coffee game - Badmug
As mentioned above, you can't go wrong with a Baratza grinder. I use a Vario-W that grinds by weight instead of volume. I also roast my single origin beans at home myself, 250 grams at a time, in a HotTop drum roaster. The most consistent electric brewer I've found is a Technivorm Moccamaster. T...

Anyone with experience at Grosse Savanne Lodge? - Badmug
I've got 3 days of fishing along with lodging booked in April. Two days in the salt and one day catching largemouths. Have any of you stayed at the lodge and fished or hunted with them? Any recommendations or experiences that were good/bad/indifferent? I gave the trip to my dad (and myself!) for...

re: Chandeleur Island Fishing Boat Charters - Badmug
I've been out with Due South four times and have my next trip with them this October. I highly recommend their operation but will give you fair warning...weekends get booked a year in advance. The crew always works their butts off to make sure you stay well-fed and skiffs are always in great condi...

re: Houston Steakhouses - Badmug
For future consideration I would add Vallone's at Gateway Memorial. Their wine list is on par with Tony's signature restaurant in Greenway. They serve the best fried soft shelled crabs and meatballs as appetizers. The beef is amazing....
