    If you want a nicer bar with top tier cocktails to start off a trip down rainey I think Tipsy Alchemist is very good. It's got a good classy vibe that doesn't draw a really cunty crowd because it's on rainey. Really cool atmosphere and views. We had a good time taking a wedding party there after a reception 2 weeks ago. Almost every other bar on Rainey is the same thing = basic drinks and craft beers in a _____ themed house with a bar attached.

    As far as the target demographic for bachelor parties if single and in late 20s/early 30s - Unbarlievable has always attracted amazing talent but it's typically wanna be IG models and 75% of the bar is probably on their phone at any given time. And the bar is run by quite possibly the most despicable business owner in the city. But it's a place for drunk guys from out of town to shoot their shot at smoking hot targets.

    I was always partial to Kung Fu on West for mostly the same reason but also the arcade setup gives it a better vibe. And the pickleback shots are delicious.

    Perry's is a solid steak (or the porkchop if you have nothing to do but sleep after dinner) and if you can reserve the bank vault room it is pretty pimp for a bach party type dinner.
    I'm not sure if they can accommodate a party that size at Red Ash but it's superior food. I think we ate as a party of 12 there for a BDay once but it was a high top table.

    Native Hostel has always been my #1 on the east side. It's really big and has tons of areas for groups to sit. Drinks are upper tier for a non-speak easy. Crowd is always pretty cool people.

    Can't go wrong with Perry's. Austin Land and Cattle is really unique and local but definitely not as baller.

    I believe he said bachelor party
    I'm not sure anything about a bachelor party is 'adult'

    Do I need a pass to go in the creek at Barton or just the pool?

    Barton Springs pool requires an entrance fee.

    The creek and trails do not, though they share the same parking lot(s) and the parking lots cost most of the time, afaik.

    There's free places to park at different areas.

    If you're going to the part of the greenbelt that connects to Zilker then park on Spyglass Drive by Tacodeli

    If you're going to the part that's on the west part of 360/Mopac then just park in the offramp area "frontage road"

    woke up to a loud pop. wait a few seconds and hear 2 more and a really loud scream. look out the crack between my blinds and window :peekaboo: about 75-80ish yards away and theres a guy standing with his back to me emptying a mag at the building one down from us. saw a smaller guy come run past the shooter and both took off. lots of cops and medics on the scene. saw a news clip broadcast out in the parking lot saying the victim was in critical condition but pretty sure i saw them roll them off in a body bag

    Buddy came in town for the 3-night widespread panic run at Moody. It had already been postponed from pre-covid tour dates. The rescheduling caused our other friend that was coming with him to have to bail so I was gonna step in and go to the shows and get weird. lead singer got the Vid apparently and they've now re-re-scheduled for 10/8-10/10. Sucks for my friend and not really a lot to do with Delta flaring back up here. Plus that early-October rescheduling date seems ambitious and pretty optimistic all things considered

    was at a small group work conference thing a couple weeks back and one of the teams was a residential real estate firm. Dude was throwing out some statistics as part of his pitch/speech and said that there were only ~1,700 active listings and the rolling "inventory" figure is like 2 weeks. IIRC he said that the average of most major cities are around 15-20K active listings and 2.5-3 months of inventory

    nope open "applications" last week. you ranked the ~14 levels in order of preference and then selected the ones that you didn't want. I selected all the sections below $200/ticket

    If you haven't been to Jewboy Burgers I will rep it till I die. Sazan is my newish fav ramen (much more limited than ramen tatsuya). There's a new korean BBQ that is supposed to open soon there. As far as bars... I went to Higher Grounds the other week which was cool but not sure how new it is. Its a converted church downtown

    I think I’ve seen you mention Jewboy before. I need to check them out.
    I love ramen. I probably order it once or twice a week. I Googled Sazan and the bowls look good but small? Looks like good wings too.
    Never heard of Higher Grounds. I’ll look it up. Thanks.

    Single TLAU is back on the market.
    Not sure how it works but in a couple of weeks of casually easing back onto the app game, being 37 on there is a lot easier and better than last time I was on there at 33. Best guess has been that it's due to age/maturity gaps between early 20s and early 30s being much different mid-late 20s/30s.

    amicable split. just too different in certain ways to work together / live together in the long run. she'd said all along that she thought we were opposites in a lot of aspects to be able to live together. I think Covid lockdown and living in dallas away from our friend groups kinda showed us that was true. Got to where we fought about petty shit way too often.

    Also never really felt like a "team" outside of when we were on trips together. Never got to be best friends etc. "Just because people have good qualities doesn't make them good for you" or whatever.

    I'm happy. She's happy. Cutting it off before there's any bitterness. And I'm in a lot better place in pretty much all aspects of life (job, house, financially) than I was when I met her so I'm actually pretty excited to be single. This is one of the better cities anywhere to be happily single and focus on yourself.
