I Didn’t Know Sichuan, China Included Round Rock

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I often eat lunch at home, but every now and again I find myself “out and about” running errands and such just about the time the alarm goes off. The one in my middle, I mean. Years of working in the chemical industry taught me to […]

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Some days you get to travel internationally and never have to leave home…

Sunday Brunch Anniversary Celebration: Moonshine Restaurant Patio Bar and Grill

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

The Long Road Home, and the Great Eatery We Found Along the Way

Saturday morning dawned early, bright and clear, except for the doomed travelers. Seems staying out on Bourbon Street and environs until 4 AM isn’t conducive to being alert and smiling at 7 AM. The same day, I mean. Still, the revelers got a nice nap (unless they also had to pack their gear, which […]
