Hard Hat XII

Other one was getting cumbersome.

Two things I saw today:

1. Looks like Suzi's on Anderson will be no more. It now says it's a sleep experts on the building, but the "coming soon" on the sign is still there.

2. New place opened between Noble and Pinthouse called Fork and Taco. Haven't tried it yet, though.

  1. johnny t's bbq in RR is moving to pflugerville due to "re-purposing" of the space :-( he has the best green beans i've ever had, but i'm never over in PF.

    1. Oh, Fork & Taco opened? Funny, I was at Noble on Saturday and saw the space but had eyes only for Noble.

      1. The Mexican Cookware post reminded me to look up the cookware store I keep seeing on South First Street. Turns out they just grand opened today.

          sqwertz, if you haven't been to Lenoir, you must remedy that, pronto. It's excellent.

          1. re: Optimista

            I don't dine out nearly as much as the rest of you. I've got a pretty long list of places I *should* try.

            1. re: sqwertz

              I'm sure you're much the healthier for it, sqwertz.

              1. re: sqwertz

                I've seen a lot of the pictures of meals you've cooked sqwertz. With that quality and variety coming out of your home kitchen, you're not missing anything by eating in.

                  1. re: dinaofdoom

                    How are you guys all seeing sqwertz's cooking? Does he write a blog?!?

                        1. re: dinaofdoom

                          Must keep an eye out for those...Chowhound party at sqwertz's house?

                      1. re: Optimista

                        I'm not into wordy blogs. I just post pictures to a flickr account:

                        But I do describe a lot of the things I make in the Facebook Cooking Group:

                              Hey I'm only 45.5 and I do brakes !!!! I show the picture of the kids at McDonalds as the first slide of my diabetes / obesity lectures here at UT.

                                Darn. Can I adopt you for twice monthly meals? hehehe.

                                1. re: amysuehere

                                  if not, a CSA or something, perhaps?

                                    1. re: amysuehere

                                      like a share & pickup service. i've been seeing "CSA" type services now for all sorts of things that aren't produce.

                                      1. re: dinaofdoom

                                        That sounds fun. Would be a nice compromise when I want to go out and hubby wants to stay in.

                                        1. re: amysuehere

                                          shares seem to be gaining momentum, too. so far i've seen cheese, jam, dessert, bread and meat shares.

                                          sqwertz, take note if you are in an enterprising mood! :-D

                    1. Just talked to publicist of Fork & Taco. Sign up. Restaurant won't open till middle of month.
