  1. Amateur question. I would like to spread some turf builder, and I think I need to aerate before doing so. My yards are not big, total lot size is 7k sq. feet. A professional service quoted me $150. I don't mind spending some money, but that just seems silly for my small yards. This is the only tool with decent reviews on Amazon. Would seem like a slow process, but fine to go this route if it's the best idea: Yard Butler Lawn Coring Aerator Manual Grass Dethatching Turf Plug Core Aeration Tool ID-6C This would seem like the easiest/most efficient, but reviews are pretty terrible: Rolling Lawn Aerator 18-inch Garden Yard Rotary Push Tine Heavy Duty Spike Soil Aeration, 50-in Handle (Green w/Fender) The aerator shoes are the last option, but have read these are not the best idea. Any advice on the best option?

  3. Anybody aware of public courses open in Dallas? Have a buddy that wants to go this weekend, but said he called 5 or 6 places. Bear Creek and Tenison had messages that they're closed indefinitely. The others didn't answer. This was also in the evening, so he said he's going to try again today.
  4. A Mendocino Farms opened on Ross across from the Trammell Crow Building. I haven't been yet, but there was one near a client I worked on in LA, and it was the (only) highlight of my days there. Love the Not So Fried Chicken, but never had anything I didn't like. https://www.mendocinofarms.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/2020_SPRINGMenu_Digital_T1-small.pdf Yelp photo:
  5. Is there a trick to acquiring Louisiana crawfish tails, as in a grocery chain that typically carries them? A quick google brings up the Louisiana Crawfish Co. that will deliver for $20/lb.
  6. That sucks. I live very close, so had high hopes. Did you notice if they had a happy hour of any sort? I googled, but nothing came up and their website is worthless.
  7. I'm planning to smoke some ribs tomorrow. Live in Old East Dallas, so thinking I'll head to Rudolph's. Is that necessary for ribs, or going to overpay unnecessarily so just go to Central Market?

    Melbourne

    Had a fantastic meal at Cumulus. I believe it's a tough reservation, but I was by myself and was able to walk in and sit at the bar. Echo @staboner in that it would be great to have a local with you. They're known for their hidden bars and rooftops, which are somewhat tough to find on your own. I'm sure there's some guidance in the interwebs though. Try to attend something at MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground), ideally Aussie Rules Football IMO. It's one of the more heralded stadiums in the country.

    Ended up heading to Revolver Taco again. So F'ng good. After dinner we hit up Trick Pony for a cocktail because we still had some time to kill. Drinks were very good, and bartenders were nice and attentive. Not sure I'd make a special trip, but if you're walking by...

    Going to a concert tonight at Trees. Need a place for dinner with the wife beforehand. What are your go to's? We love Revolver Taco, but would like to try something new. Have enjoyed Niwa, but I think that's better with a larger group.
  11. My wife has a habit of saying "Long story short,..." more than once in the process of telling a story that has not been shortened at all (or if it has I praise jeebus I wasn't there for the full version). I want to tell her to stop because it just makes the story longer, but I also like sex.
  12. I'm definitely in the pro camp, but also only do a few times a year. For all the reasons already discussed, plus you're typically sitting in a nice massage chair. Been known to go with my wife and bring in a bottle of wine or champagne, which adds another element of enjoyment. Obviously barber shops that offer them likely provide beverages already.
  13. Anybody done a charter out of West Palm, FL they enjoyed? I’ll be there 3/2-3/9 with my in-laws (not a bad thing) to catch a couple Stros spring training games. My FIL is an experienced fisherman. I’ve tried my hand at most things except fly fishing (hope to one day), but definitely consider myself an amateur. FIL has said he would be interested in bone fish or tarpon, but certainly not just dropping lines on a reef with a group charter (me neither). Any thoughts?

    Cuba

    I'm a bit surprised that they want $40/day just for an itinerary. Is it more than that? Do you ever interact with the local guide when you're there?

    Cuba

    Mentioned in a few threads, but I just booked flights so I've decided it deserves its own. 7 nights with the wife, April 22 - 29. Our 5th Anniversary is the 25th. Thinking 3 nights in Havana, then head to the beach (Varadera perhaps?) for a couple nights, and then something more interior for 2. Not opposed to lengthening Havana and doing day trips to reduce to only 1 move. My wife prefers the comfier side on the accomodation front, but is fine venturing away from that for a night or 2. We like food, drink, dancing, exploring, etc. Get stir crazy pretty quickly sitting on a beach or by the pool. Anybody been? Food recs? Did you hire a driver or just arrange a taxi whenever needed? Book accommodations through Airbnb or direct with hotels? Any lodging you really liked? Any trouble getting a visa?
