As with any time I head down to East Austin for my monthly cut at SHED, I always plan on visiting some place new. Whether it’s a cafe, restaurant, or food park-I make the most of my trip from North Austin. Not too long ago, I paid a visit to the Brewer’s Table, a wonderful […]
New restaurants we visit, the food we eat, and the pictures we take of said food before we eat it.
It’s a Jersey Thing…revisited This past March, I wrote about my search for a Jersey Classic: a Taylor Ham, Egg, and Cheese on a bagel which I eventually found at Wholy Bagel. I haven’t had one since then so when my wife heard about Nervous Charlies and told me that they served up, New York style bagels […]
Today was a day of firsts but not really. In fact, today was like a day I would have back home in New Jersey: wake up, get ready for work, drop off the kids, take the light rail, go to the office, enjoy lunch including but not limited to a choice of either korean fusion, […]
Thursdays are for throwbacks And I enjoyed my time in the #HollyHood section of (East) Austin on Tuesday so much, that I decided to throw. it. back. and make for a return to Greater Goods Coffee Roasters once again to work and enjoy a latte (or two) and see if I can position myself on […]

Lucy’s Fried Chicken Arrives in Cedar Park!
I Love Lucy Lucy! You’re home! (Ricky Ricardo Voice) And by home, I mean Cedar Park. Since we moved here exactly a year ago from New Jersey, we’ve always wanted to try Lucy’s Fried Chicken but we weren’t able to get around to it so when I heard that they were coming to Cedar Park […]
Every time I head downtown for a haircut, I always make it a point to make a side trip (or two) to a place of interest. Today, I paid a visit to the newly opened Hank’s Austin in the Windsor Park neighborhood of Northeast Austin. I really like the concept of it being a coffee shop by […]
Busted Brackets If you’re like everyone else, your NCAA tournament bracket got busted EARLY. For me, I had hopes of repeating as March Madness Bracket Champion at work with a nice $100 cash prize as a handsome reward. Alas, Texas A&M dashed my dreams of a back to back championship and made me “aggy” as […]
SXSW is here!…let’s go to Be More Pacific!
#SXSW… ….Sorry, this isn’t a #SXSW post. (But the headline made you look, yes?) While South by Southwest IS, without a doubt, the biggest #FOMO event of the year in Austin as thousands descend upon the city to experience a seemingly infinite amount of panels, concerts, conferences, movie premieres, pop up exhibits (just to name […]
It’s a Jersey Thing
Searching for a “Jersey Classic” When we were preparing to move here almost a year ago, there was a short list of items I knew that, in time, and research; I would need to find to help me fully “settle” into this new lifestyle that Austin presented. One item was a fully equipped gym with […]
