Looking to shop with the option of snacking? Want to meet for lunch and a maybe pick up the perfect birthday/wedding gift? Just looking for a well-prepared and satisfying meal? The Sironia Cafe provides the ideal setting for all of the above. The Sironia ...
In February we told you that In-N-Out is looking to expand its Texas operation south of Dallas-Fort Worth and that Waco was in their plans. That little bit of news seemed to excite people, so of course we're going to stay on this story.
In the last four months, things seemed to have inched forward. I emailed my source at In-N-Out this week because I was starting to hear more rumors and more of you have been asking about In-N-Out. I got an answer within the afternoon. It's sort of like watching a download on your computer when you sit there and think "did it just move forward, I think it did."
It feels to me like our town has gone a little quiet at the moment.
Maybe it's because all the schools are out now, Baylor is sleep walking through the first half of summer session, some of my buds have exited for other places, some are preparing to make moves and some folks have just skipped town for a little while. I'm a glass-half-full type of guy lately, though, so I'ma just be happy that parking spaces are easy to find.
I'm invoking Rule 90-20 today. That's the rule that states if the temperature outside is below 90 degrees and the wind is blowing less than 20 mph, then I probably play golf. This is not to be confused with Rule 80-20, which states that if the temperature outside is below 80 degrees and the wind less than 20 mph, then I definitely play golf.

This just in: Mama Fu's has July 1 tentatively targeted for the grand opening of its new Valley Mills Drive restaurant. That will make it the first restaurant to open in the shopping center anchored by Aldi and soon to also include SmashBurger, Jimmy John's and Rusty Taco.
One cool thing about Mama Fu's, which is sort of Asian-fusion casual dining, is that it's an order-at-the-counter deal during the day and table service at night. Click here to check out their menu.
It's looking like we'll have SmashBurger open right around the middle of August.
SmashBurger's Brad Brown told me this week that they're looking at about four weeks until they start outfitting their space, though they're still in that stage where they're waiting on outside factors, so they can't name a specific date yet.
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.
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.
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.
