    I'm going to take the job, but pushed my start date backed a few months to give more time for relocating.

    Will be interesting as I've only worked for standard privately owned businesses in my career. This will be totally different for me.

    thinking about going camping somewhere outside of town the first weekend of sxsw and renting out my place. airbnbs in south austin are starting at 250/night for just a bedroom. what would you guys price an apartment where i'm at with 1 queen, 1 sleeper sofa, fiber internet, free parking, pool, etc. I'd have to get at least a grand for the weekend to make it worth rent-proofing the place. got a lot of music and electronics shit i'd have to lock up.

    If you do it, you have to leave a bottle of Jeppsons Malort on the counter

    Specs website says their round rock store has 11 bottles, I'll grab you one on Monday
    No other specs within 100 miles has any

    Valentina’s brisket breakfast taco is the finest breakfast item I have ever experienced (many times over).

    It actually makes me kinda wish my sister was still married to one of her two dumbass ex husbands who used to love to 'ask' if they could have a glass of my Macallan, even though I knew they would drink several glasses and not have anything comparable when we would visit them

    Meet me at damn near any crawfish boil you see... or 1 per weekend actually. Goddamn Austin got all aboard the whole white folks love crawfish boils train.

    Probably will try to hit up black sheep’s this Saturday since it’s gonna be happening during the UK-UT game. Crawfish boils are the extent of my social life until 4/15.

    With the exceptions of:
    3/20 Eric Gales
    3/22 Tameca Jones
    3/30 revivalists and Kitefest - look for the hot dog kite and you’ll find a fluffy husky attached
    4/5 Flowtribe
    4/12-13 STS9

    had a SWA travel voucher expiring and it's cold as hell in KC, headed to Austin to visit family Friday morning - Sunday evening.

    Best place for a single to get on the golf course Friday late morning? Played Kizer and Clay a bunch, wanting to try something different. I know Lions Muni is always in the discussion to be shut down and made into a residential neighborhood, worth it to check out?

    Grey Rock is worth checking out. Lions is an institution but it’s shitty. Morris Williams is a solid central muni if it’s in good shape. I’d read golf advisor recent reviews

    not violently full anymore, so my report:

    got a little bit of everything

    brisket I had was a little overdone today (but I have had it before on one of their sandwiches and it was always great)
    ribs and pulled pork were amazing
    loved the jalapeno sausage, thought the beef one was just ok
    brisket grits were :blessed:
    tomato zucchini salad was surprisingly good

    also for future reference to all, its byob there right now
