re: Texas Trip - L Boogie
I'm pretty sure you have to make reservations for Hamilton pool now, and it's already been closed a few times this season due to high levels of harmful bacteria in the water. It's gorgeous, though. ...

re: Boston - L Boogie
Austin is fine but enough has changed in the last 11 years that I've been here that I'm ready for a change. I'll miss tacos, though....

re: Boston - L Boogie
I mean, I'm mostly with you on that, but Boston has SO much history that I feel as though it would be doing oneself a disservice to not experience at least some of it. It's easy to find a balance. And thanks! I'll be right around Porter Square. I'm excited! It's pretty different from Aus...

re: Boston - L Boogie
Well, they were tourists, so... I did stuff like that my first trip, too. I don't hold that against first time visitors. I went like 7 times in the last 1.5 years and moving there in a week so now I'm more interested in carving out my favorite local spots (and have found some faves), but I un...

re: What food scene is your town missing? - L Boogie
Agreed, and the Stuffed on Brodie closed so the only option for good Louisiana-style food is the original Stuffed all the way up on 620. I don't think Evangeline or Cypress Grill are all that good. I guess one could argue that, because that location closed, there isn't much of a market for it, b...

re: Huge Apartment Fire in London - L Boogie
I'm not familiar with London, and to my knowledge, though she has done some research, neither is she. You seem to be, though, since you're obviously convinced that it's both ghetto and full of Muslims. It very well could be, but I doubt that you know that for certain. I reserve the right to be ...

re: Huge Apartment Fire in London - L Boogie
My sister is in London on her honeymoon right now. I've been in a panic for hours because I haven't been able to reach her...ordinarily I wouldn't be all that worried, but they are staying in a flat instead of a hotel, and since I don't know exactly where they are staying, radio silence freaked me ...

re: New England trip ideas - L Boogie
I LOVED Portland...I would live there. Lots to do and walkable, for the most part. We Ubered to various breweries but stayed downtown and managed to get around just fine. The people are probably the friendliest I have ever encountered, the city is beautiful and CLEAN, and the food and beer are ...

re: Beer in Austin - L Boogie
This is a fun little article about PHP and the style of beer they are calling Pinthouse IPAs. It gives good insight into Joe's personality and passion.

re: Beer in Austin - L Boogie
Not in the next month or two, but Holdin's a hit so I imagine it will be back in the nearish future. In the process of installing two new fermenters so will be able to keep up with EJ production while making larger batches of the more exclusive IPAs. Every special IPA in the last 8 months or s...

re: Beer in Austin - L Boogie
EJ has been hugely successful, moreso than I think anyone anticipated...Zappy Squid was Burnet's response to Jelly and while it's good, EJ is considered the best local IPA for a reason. Same with Juice, it was an answer to Lamar's WTF is Juice? Which, in my opinion, is the best beer to ever come ...

re: Beer in Austin - L Boogie
Just be aware that the North pub and the South pub have different beers on, so don't go to Burnet expecting Jellyfish, and vice versa. The director of brewing is the same at both locations so a lot of the styles are the same (NE IPAs at both), but the brew crews are different so the beers are als...

re: Beer in Austin - L Boogie
Pinthouse South Lamar has the juiciest, best selling IPA in town called the Electric Jellyfish. Also on tap is the Road to Nowhere DIPA. Badass APA called Green Battles, double dry-hopped experimental hop blend. The North pub probably has some good shite on as well. Just depends on the ...

re: Stiles Switch, Rudy's, Terry Black's, & Slab (Austin) - L Boogie
Yeah, they're definitely open, but I guess they're still transitioning. Their brisket is incredible, and get a beef rib! Save room for a taco, too...their tortillas are made in house and are incredible. Basic brisket taco is the best but if they have the Vaquero on special, get that. Valen...
