re: Quick Review of my Trip to Fredericksburg, TX over Labor Day - Grrrl on 9/12/16 at 2:53 pm
Shame to hear Cabernet Grill was a disappointment. I was there last in April 2014 and had a fantastic dinner. Things can change in that time though. However, glad Becker and William Chris were on the good list! Definite favorites of mine. [quote]Over Labor day weekend with thousands of peo...

[quote]Don't do wine tastings. It is a rip off. Look for a bottle you think you will like and buy it, it will be a better deal. [/quote] You don't really get the point of visiting wineries, do you? I will agree that if you visit the area often and/or really wanted a low key chill day, bringing...

re: Bringing beer back from Austin - Grrrl on 7/14/16 at 12:03 pm
There's a bar on Rainey Street called Craft Pride. They also have a little store if you want to buy some stuff to bring back. They're really helpful if you tell them what you like or ask for suggestions. ...

re: Maternity leave in the USA... - Grrrl on 4/15/16 at 11:24 am
Not pregnant, but my company changed our policy not too long ago. Moms get 6-8 weeks of 100% paid medical maternity leave based on if the birth was vaginal or by c-section, plus 2 weeks 100% pay for "bonding time" New fathers/adoptive parents also get 2 weeks 100% paid bonding time. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]You understand this shite is stupid and fake so the producers can just tell the dude to keep the black chick until that point?[/quote] But that's the point. They aren't going to force anyone to keep the black people around that long so they won't have any more pressure to pick them as the n...

re: The next Bachelor will be black - Grrrl on 1/19/16 at 6:56 pm
I was reading about this recently. Will be very unlikely. The next bachelor/bachelorette has followed a pretty basic pattern. It's one of the final 4 (but obviously not one of the top 2). It helps them maintain viewers who already feel invested in these people. Unless someone of color makes it that ...

[quote] It's nice watching silly tv sometimes[/quote] I got sucked into this not too long ago.. Needed something to watch while working from home.

re: Good Morning Thread - Grrrl on 12/14/15 at 11:42 am
my company is going all out for the premiere since it's a bunch of geeks. They've been playing the movies in the theater everyday and they actually rented a screen at a theater nearby for employees Friday afternoon. It was first come first serve and has a waiting list. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: GMT, day before Thanksgiving day - Grrrl on 11/25/15 at 8:12 am
The wine was something I just thought of. I have a ton and rarely drink it because I'm a firm believer in finishing a bottle when I open it. Last night we made a bacon jalapeno cheese ball, chocolate peanut butter pie, brownies and these pecan pie cheesecake bars with a shortbread cookie crust. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
