Tons of musicians, I believe Annie Clark would now be considered the most famous of the lot considering she just won a Grammy (as St. Vincent). We chatted at the now defunct Maxwell's (Hoboken) as well as another time at North Star Bar in Philly.
I attended a party and Glenn Close was there. She asked me who I was wearing (which is all kinds of ridiculous) before chatting up my date who was / is a social worker.
Former UFC fighter Pat Barry put me on his tab at a Fight Club meet-up at House of Blues in Vegas. We talked for a good while; he's a really down to earth & happy-go-lucky guy... who can kick your head off. Uriah Faber is another really cool dude who's always greeting folks at UFC events.
Do you flush steaks that are cooked above Medium?
Nope, I just never go back to the establishment again. Why this is ever done purposefully boggles my mind. Might as well slather some catsup on it too and complete the culinary abomination.
I should add that I more importantly am also our beer club president. Shhh...
Quality Manager for device service & drug / device distribution for a pharma company which manufactures both drug & device.
He's a magnificent college QB, no question. Some, myself included, do not see an NFL future for him at QB. With that in mind, a position change now could improve his draft stock because he's unquestionably an elite athlete.
But if he sticks it out at QB, I'll being cheering as hard for him on Saturdays as I would either of the other two proven options. Perhaps he'll even prove us doubters wrong and make it as a QB at the next level as well; we shall see.
I appreciate the recommendation. And that sounds like a good balance: pork from Mueller's and brisket by Franklin. And if the Jeni's truck shows up again this year, then dessert is covered too.
Yeah, I'm heading back this year again. I even managed to score Franklin's BBQ which is a coup; best brisket ever.
Much like you, for several years I "meant" to go but didn't for whatever reasons. Then when I finally went for the 1st time, within the first 1/2 day I felt like the biggest dipshit for missing out all of those years. It is an epic event like no other. Certainly the cost can be prohibitive, but there are ways to minimize that. For one, I don't fly directly into Austin as the rates are always ludicrous. I'll be cruising in from IAH via a night in Lockhart (that's right, even more bbq).
I suspect you are definitely going to make it one of these years; and I predict you'll have a similar moment of reflection when you want to kick your own ass for missing out for so long. But then the next great band will start playing, you'll drink some free beer and you'll know exactly why I keep making the pilgrimage...
Completely off topic but it came up around this time last year - any plans on finally taking in all of the glory that is SXSW?
