It may well be good for what it is.  However, it sounds too Cali for Tex-Mex tastes.

The ginger man is way far away from the meet. It's in downtown Austin, whereas the meet is in like north central Austin. It's a good 30+ minutes depending on traffic. There is a place called the Draught House. It's very close, just a few blocks south on Burnett road.

Tatsu-ya is great. But it's also $10 a person for food, not including alcohol of choice. They do have great house made sake for $3. Very nice serving size for the price. I'd be down with this idea if other people like ramen.

 

Oh, and it's more like Tex-Japan flavors. Yum.

Mex(ico) is closer and margaritas are generally preferred over sake; beer is always good--regardless of origin.  Too bad it will be Saturday night or well could consider Chuy's at Duval and 183.  Haven't been to Draught House yet, but have heard good things. 

 

Are you you from far east Texas?

My restaurant of choice is too far out of the way, Milano Trattoria in Georgetown. Going to have to see if they are open Sundays so I can catch them for lunch on the way out of town since we'll be going somewhere closer for dinner probably. Their site says open Sundays but last year I went Saturday night and was so impressed I tried to go back for lunch Sunday knowing it would be a year before I would come back but they were closed despite the site saying open Sunday.

By the way, people picking restaurants, try to keep in mind most of us will have lots of dollars in our trunks, so good parts of town would be a plus!

I for one won't be too picky, but picking something that's close enough and something in a decent area of town would be nice.

Hopdoddy is practically across the street. Good fare.

Hah. No. I'm from Austin. And I also prefer margaritas to sake.

Hopdoddy is probably the best idea. Tasty burgers, beer and mixed drinks. They have a pretty good margarita too. And Nick is right, it is next door.

Sounds like a good idea. Very close so minimal time wasted traveling (and so I don't get lost!). Wondering how busy they are on a Saturday night though.. especially if we end up having a significant showing. Reviews I've read mention hour long lines...

Hopdoddy is always busy, but so worth it. They don't have the table space to support large parties, though. Would have to split into separate tables.

Wonder if it'd be good to warn them or if they'd just tell us to deal with it.

Also, got kind of a treat for you guys. If all goes well I should be bringing a new Well Tempered Labs Amadeus (instead of my Scout. Sold the Scout and my Tax return came in today), along with a (borrowed) Dynavector P75 mkII Phono Stage. Gonna be a major upgrade from my current rig.

post #372 of 774
Looking forward to the new rig, Travis. biggrin.gif

I will be too! biggrin.gif
