  1. My practices are not designed for your enjoyment.
  2. See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great.
  3. Very different markets. Downtown rents are ridiculous. Don’t know many law firms that are as far out as 183/620, which is basically Cedar Park.
  4. My Fourth of July weekend reservations are set as follows: Friday dinner: Compere Lapin Saturday brunch: Atchafalaya Saturday dinner: La Petite Grocery Sunday dinner: Gris Gris So I’m looking to fill Friday lunch and Sunday lunch with casual walk ins. Any recommendations? I’m staying in the Warehouse District on Carondelet, but don’t mind venturing out.
  5. I spent all last week in Rosemary Beach, and nobody there is wearing masks. Not in restaurants, not in shops, not in grocery stores. We didn’t wear masks from the time we stepped out of the airport until we returned. I come back to Austin, and this morning in Central Market maybe 25% of the folks were wearing masks, including both employees and customers in that figure. It wasn’t like that before I left for vacation. I don’t mind continuing to mask up, but is Austin starting to say fuck it with the masks?
  6. I’ve been in Rosemary Beach all week, and I’ve seen maybe five people out of the masses wearing a mask. Nobody is wearing masks in restaurants or grocery stores. Our group of three families have all been vaccinated so we’ve said fuck it and haven’t worn a mask since we left the airport. I’m going to New Orleans for Fourth of July weekend and figure it’ll be similar.
  7. God damn you Walter! You fucking asshole! Everything's a fucking travesty with you, man! And what was all that shit about Vietnam? What the fuck has anything got to do with Vietnam? What the fuck are you talking about?
  8. Definitely plenty to keep you around town. Taking the ferry to Bainbridge Island is always fun.
  9. If you have a car there’s some great hiking not that far out of town. I recommend hiking Rattlesnake Ledge and then getting lunch at nearby Snoqualmie Falls Brewery.
  10. Agreed, and I’ll take my kids there again on our upcoming trip. The Chihuly Gardens exceeded my expectations. And MoPop usually has great exhibits. On my last visit they had a cool Pearl Jam exhibit. The Needle seems touristy, but if you go on a nice day it’s a lot of fun to grab a beer and take in some beautiful Seattle views.
  11. If you haven’t been, take your kids on the Seattle Underground tour. It’s a fascinating look at the historical town of Seattle preserved under the current city. http://www.undergroundtour.com/ Recall having a fantastic seafood meal at Shaker + Spear. https://www.shakerandspear.com/menus/ I’m taking my kids there for a long weekend in early August. Would appreciate reading a review of your trip and how the city has been opening up.
  12. Agreed. We started our last trip to Italy in Milan and were so unimpressed we left there a day ahead of schedule.
