About as fascinating as sticking my dick in a blender 

Why would you do that?

You could have sugar coated it and said “custodial engineer” instead of custodian or janitor, but you know how people react to things like that. My fondest memories in school was shooting the shit with the custodian during the lunch hour. He was 86 and worked there when my Dad, Uncles & Grandfather were students. He was a good man and deserved respect, no matter what color or race he was. These type of staffers don’t get the recognition they deserve. 
 


I was quoting Half Baked.

Based on the story on website for sky cinema which could very well be 1 sided...with landlord seeking another operator...I would struggle to think an operator wants to take on the risk of that rent currently. The location was very nice the 1 time we went...but If the landlord fails to find a new operator...I wouldn’t have any sympathies for the landlord.

I’ve been supporting Valentina’s and Leroy & Lewis. If the good BBQ places go under...
I went to Leroy and Lewis to pick up food for my birthday. I've known Evan a while now, went to high school with Emily.

I hope they're able to stay open. They had plans for a brick and mortar store but timing wise it's probably best they're in a trailer for all this.

Plug for Hold Out brewery. (right next to better half). Grabbed some burgers and beer. Was really good. Burgers not too huge (we got the singles) and beer went down great on hot Austin day.

 Looks to be a cool place once they are open for sit down

For the beard guys here, I called around today, and could only get this guy to trim my beard on Saturday. The rest wouldn't do it.  My beard has been growing out of control,  He is going to shave me on top, others said, they wouldn't even shave, (worried about blood exposed?).

Cover my nose and mouth if u want, but this is stupid.

WTF Schlotkys, (sp?)  

I've been eating sandwiches from you since the 70's/80's on S. Congress.  My dad and I would always get a large original and split it.  I have supported you on S Lamar, now you close down and leave me without an original, while leaving your "suburb" loacations open.  Fuck you.

Let me get this right? You need another man to shave/trim your beard?

Schlotzsky’s is fantastic and you will not curse its name

It's gone so downhill the last ten years though.  I know the menu is largely unchanged but the quality of ingredients has taken a complete and utter nosedive since their acquisition.

After the beard, the barber moves down to the scrote.

I’m hearing some talk this morning that Enchiladas y Mas might be making a return. Anyone hearing anything similar?

I tried making reservations at Perlas a few weeks ago and their number was disconnected or no longer in service.

^   bMcGuire Moorman shut down the whole restaurant group at the outbreak.  They're only now, and very slowly, opening them back up.

With the exception of one or two, almost all the McGuire restaurants have been open for several weeks now.  

Perlas and Clarke’s have been booked up almost every night since mid-May.

I dialed 459-2222 and the oysters they delivered tasted like anchovies and feet.

Yep, gonna really miss Cafe Josie.  Wife and I had our first anniversary dinner there.  csbalert/ We brought a really nice 1.5L wine we bought on our first trip anywhere together (wine country) to Josie.  We sat, drunk and well fed, with the server and the chef talking about our meal and about wine afterwards for a half hour (we saved them both a half glass taste of the bottle).  20 years later, probably still the best anniversary dinner we ever had.  And what a cool little off-the-beaten-path piece of real estate they had, even though it was very much on the beaten path.  So many great Austin joints going under.  Really unfortunate.  And all the shitty ones that remain.

Sounds like he was planning to shut it down because landlord (McGuire Moorman) wouldn’t play ball with TI needed to expand and add lunch service/catering and was going to double their rent.
