An old school chum who currently lives in Austin, offers this:   South Congress scene:  Vespaio, Italian;  Perla’s, fish.  On First Street:  Polvo’s, Mexican.   On N Lamar: Shoal Creek Saloon, Cajun. 


Then that happened.

On the cue front, I am told: "BBQ places.  Outside eating, La Barbeque, Micklewait’s meats (both trailer setups) , Franklin’s BBQ is a crazy line to get food.  Inside eating Lamberts downtown.  Then there’s Black’s, Rudy’s, Poke-Jo’s, you know BBQ is everywhere here."


Then that happened.

Franklin has reached a level where it is being offered up (a VIP experience) at a friend's Nursery School auction. Like it's Rao's or something...

I went to Micklethwaite’s last time; Franklin’s was still closed from the fire.

Franklin's open but sold out. https://franklinbbq.com/  Too many VIP experiences, I suppose.

Midnight Cowboy good, not quite as good as last time. It has drifted towards the signature cocktails with many unexpected herbs and spices (see Mace in New York).

Roosevelt Room: didn’t drink there (I have before), but I did a small cocktail class with one of their bartenders, who was just disturbingly well-informed about contemporary and historic cocktails and spirits. Encyclopedic.

Surprised to find I started this thread what feels like a very long time ago.
