Good tip, thanks.

 

I am forever car-less, of course.

I actually could get to Franklin with my schedule next week.  Annoying.

 

I don't see how I'm not getting to Bufalina this time.

 

Micklethwait and La on the BBQ list; possibly Terry Black's.

 

LA BBQ recently moved, and its current setup is a bit more user-friendly.  Very good, as always.  And let me know if you're swinging by.

 

I _still_ need to get out to Snow's.

I will be swinging by; just need to figure out which night.

Micklethwait was good, even very good, but I've still had better brisket (to my taste) at private events. Theirs was incredibly moist and tender, a bit too rich, but not as smoky as I expected. Sausage was excellent.

Drinks: Austin is all in on reservation only cocktail bars. I talked my way into The Roosevelt Room for an hour; had to book ahead and give credit card details for Midnight Cowboy --probably for 1 to 2 drinks. New York started this, right?

While I'm here, the LBJ Library does a great job of conjuring an era. The Blanton Museum has some worthwhile surprises, although most of the collection is Reina Sofia-style very good minor art.

Bullock museum of State history: grand building. Temporary exhibit on Prohibition would make anyone thirsty.

Yeah, maybe Milk & Honey (or was London first)? I think there was also one in San Francisco, whose name fails me at this time, but was probably after M & H.

I love that minor Guernica.
