The Tonight Show coming to Bass Thursday

I'm pretty sure Matthew couldn't get into UT these days.  I seriously doubt he could have gotten in 20 years ago.

But, he's a good ambassador.

Fallon couldn't have made himself and the school look dorkier if he had tried, though.  It was pretty cringe-worthy.  I mean, the drum major alone . . . wow.

It was so over the top UT that I loved it, but I imagine the rest of the world probably changed the channel. It was like one giant UT commercial.

McConaughey's message wasn't too bad. All are Welcome in Austin. If you're coming here you need to respect our culture and politics, if not then keep on flying. Not sure what his "Keep Austin Austin" flag exactly meant though.

Don't Make Austin California

Story is, he got into both SMU and UT, his brother told him to go to Austin, he'd fit in better.

Franklin BBQ's line just got a little longer if that's possible.  

About that, have the people that work there and learned some things not gone off and started their own place?

when the demand is that high, you’d think people would step up and try to take some of it until the market was saturated. 

maybe they’ve tried, I haven’t lived in Austin for 4 years, but I only ever hear of a few places on this site.

It was a helluva lotta fun despite being the old guy in the back, even found the bar on the third floor to start the party at 4pm.  Talent was strong, the cute brunette and blonde from the "Hole in the Wall" scene were seated behind us.  My student ID still works after all these years to get scanned.  Yeah, it was corny but it resonated with a nationwide demographic and we used it as a huge academic recruiting tool already.

it's because they see how much work goes in to it.

It's not like slapping a patty on the griddle.

Exactly. It’s not like Aaron has some magic secret recipe. He’s made shows and written books and given away all of his methods. He’s just that dedicated to doing it right (and hiring people that do it as good as he does).

Hard work isn’t a barrier for some people. I’m averse to it personally, but I figured there’s people wanting to be the next Aaron franklin and willing to work as hard as he has to get where he’s gotten.

I think there are several joints in town that are in that conversation.  Most of them don't have the brand cachet, so the lines aren't so bad, but it's not hard to find good 'que in Austin even if you avoid Franklin.

If you have bad bbq is Austin, then it's your own damned fault. There are so many good to great places in this town. Franklin is great, but it's nowhere near 4 hours in line better than other places.
