Texas Monthly is stoking the BBQ fire.
Check out this article in conjunction with the magazine's Texas Top 50 barbecue list. It's an entertaining and informative read.
The heavy-metal teen punk in me wants to sit outside the McDonald's location on Valley Mills and listen to "Appetite for Destruction."
I'm not gonna do it, but I'm glad that part of me still exists. The sight of a demolition crew taking down the old McDonald's was enough to get me to pull over and snap a photo. McDonald's is tearing down this old building in order to build a new one in the same spot.
I checked with Cafe Homestead this morning and they still have seats for the June 1 farm-to-table event.
The restaurant began this series calling it "farm to table dinner" and then moved away from that distinction when the menu didn't precisely fit. But this one is going to be a spring harvest farm-to-table dinner. There will be one seating at 6:30 p.m. and the cost is $49 per person.
Here's the third installment of Tuesday Trivia, which we'll be running all summer.
We're tying trivia to new music, movie and TV DVD releases, since that happens on Tuesdays, so you'll have some framework for my question's origin. But I'm not going to frame the question so that you'll just be able to look up new releases and find the answer. I can hopefully make it a bit trickier than that. For example, Darius Rucker released a new album today, so the question comes from the Hootie & The Blowfish catalog.
I'm currently working from Common Grounds for two reasons.
For one thing, I'm unofficially making this "old crotchety guy day" at CG because with Baylor graduation directly in our rear-view mirror and summer school directly ahead, it's the perfect day at Common Grounds for guys like me. That is, guys who like to work in a public space, but want to find that sweet spot where I'm not at my house but also not in a really crowded place. Common Grounds is the right amount of chill today.
See, this is when I'm not sure I want to be known as a food critic. First of all, I'm not. I write a restaurant blog about Waco restaurants and sometimes rave about restaurants from other towns that strike my interest for one reason or another.
If you follow this blog closely, you may have noticed that I never really give a thumbs up or thumbs down. Perhaps I should. Perhaps I just don't have the gumption to do it. But I would rather provide info and maybe a little perspective rather than say "go here" and "don't go there." Of course I'm going to say go to places like Kitok's, Bangkok Royal, Vitek's, Cafe Homestead, etc. But there are several good reasons for that and it doesn't take a food critic to taste that those places deserve your attention.
The Margarita and Salsa Festival announced its entertainment lineup this morning. Kevin Fowler will be headlining the annual party with supporting acts the Casey Donahew Band and Whiskey Myers.
The 18th installment of the Margarita and Salsa Festival will be held August 24 at the Extraco Events Center. So if you dig Mexican food, margaritas and Texas country music (who doesn't, right?) then mark your calendar.
Here's the second installment of Tuesday Trivia, which we'll be running all summer.
We're tying trivia to new music, movie and TV DVD releases, since that happens on Tuesday, so you'll have some framework for my question's origin. But I'm not going to frame the question so that you'll just be able to look up new releases and find the answer. I can hopefully make it a bit trickier than that.
We told you last week about Sironia's Cupcakes & Cocktails event coming up this Thursday. This is your reminder, so take heed because this could be a blast and quite possibly the highlight of your week.
