Texas trip

I'll be in Texas from 5 July - 12 July

I'll be in Dallas the weekend of the fifth. I dunno anybody down there except for Lu. It'd be nice to see you at Hererra's or something. I don't get much good Tex-Mex up here in the frozen north. I don't know if you guys know each other or not, or like each other if you do. In any case, I know Lu and theMAC are in the metroplex. I'm headin out to the farm that Sunday, so I won't be available for pubic appearances after that until I come back to Dallas on Thursday or so.

Lemme know...or don't, as you wish.

I once walked straight across Texas. I did it in an hour and half.

I can't make it on the 5th.

the odds are decent that I may be in Dallas and/or San Antonio sometime within the next coming months. Probally around the holidays... or whenever.

Mug, I highly suggest Deep Ellum for you

and thar ya ar!

No President should ever go to Dallas again. He should stick with Ft. Worth.

PMG, I lived in Dallas for 37 years. I thank you for the suggestion, but Deep Ellum is not what it was when I was in high school. It's been sanitized into a theme park. At the risk of sounding hipper than thou (and I don't mean to), I doubt if there's anything anyone could tell me about Dallas that I don't already know - at least as far as places I'd want to check out.
Deep Ellum is a good place to see music and drink, I suppose, since there's a high concentration of clubs in a small area. I'll mostly be stopping to visit friends who I haven't seen in a couple of years and to have some Tex-Mex food that's real. I also need to spend some time with my mom. I left Texas without saying goodbye to her and didn't see her on my last trip south. The rest of the trip, I'll be at Oxsan's playin on the tractor and eatin his groceries.

The last time I went home, I felt like I was walking into the belly of the Beast without permission. This time I feel more like I'm going to see an old friend for a short visit. Someday, I'll retire back to my home state and we'll both be completed in a sense.

I did not know that you was a resident at one point. I recomended it via a recomendation of an uncle who wrote a book about it (deep ellum and the white track I think is the title).


ah well

There's a song called Deep Ellum Blues by Robert Johnson that the Dead covered at one point. It was the black part of town back in the 20s, and has had a pretty colorful history. It's got a lot of great bars and clubs in it now, but it's full of kids and drunks and wannabes headin out to get a tat.
It's been landscaped, fer pete's sake. Still, it's a fun place to walk around and people-watch every now and then.
I went to the Arts Magnet High School a few blocks from there and graduated in 81. Back then, Deep Ellum was really just a warehouse district with a few seminal clubs taking form there, and it was kind of dangerous and interesting. Now it's safe and, well...safe.

Of course you are. Though I'm not sure to what. I was thinkin that anybody who wanted to could meet me for lunch or dinner at Hererra's or somethin in Dallas that Saturday or somethin. I dunno. I just know that I miss eatin there, and they ain't got nothin like it up here. The one I'm thinkin of is over on Maple Ave. There's a big one down at Hudnall and Denton Dr down the street, or the one near Oak Lawn and Maple. Food's cheap, and there's plenty of it - so it'll make a turd. And with all the habanero they put in their sauce, you get to enjoy it twice.

There's a bar-b-que joint in Dallas I really like. I've been there only a coupla times, but if my memory serves me correctly, I recall it's somewheres near SMU. It's called Dickey's. Ever eaten there? Mmmm mmmm good.

Amen.

and I'll bring my digital cam, though it won't amount to a pissup. I ain't drinkin, and I ain't gettin nekkid in public anymore. That caveat doesn't extend to the rest of you, of course.

Of course I've eaten at Dickey's. There's more than one of em, though. There's also Fred's BBQ in Irving, which is count. And Harvey's over by Texas Stadium that's been there since before I was born, I think. And Sonny Bryan's on Inwood and Harry Hines. But I can get decent BBQ anytime right here in Mpls at Famous Dave's, and they're a client of mine anyway. In fact, I raided Sonny Bryan's to staff the new Dave's joints goin up in the DFW area.

Yeah, I've noticed Dickey's has been movin' up the interstate. The one I'm talkin' about, though, ain't it the original one?

Amen.

p.s. The BEST bbq joints in the world are waaaay south o' Minnesota 'n' 1-2 hours north o' the Red River. Don't even bother arguin' wif me, 'cause I kin eat more ribs than you can.

Best BBQ joints in the world are in TX where it was invented. That may be an entirely different thread. I don't eat much ribs. I eat briscuit. I ain't gonna pay all that money for somethin that I have to work that hard on. I'm built for comfort, not speed, and I like slice beef sammiches and iced tea and tater salad and slaw and cornbread and a slice or two of raw onion and some cobbler or chess pie to finish it off.

And then, of course, I drink a glass of metamucil and shit like a coon.

Of course, that's kakadoodie 'bout BBQ bein' invented in Texas, but that's neither here nor there. Your statement does point out a definite line which, curiously enough, is more or less drawn by the red river. In Texas, the strong BBQ is beef and, yes, I love good brisquit. In Oklahoma, the strong BBQ is pork, ribs in particular.

Amen.

I love French cuisine. I only eat at the fanciest restaurants, such as the 21 Club, Le Grenouille, The Four Seasons and Papaya King!!

I used to BBQ outside the rooster pits in Thackerville and Marietta, JEB. Beef short ribs and briscuit, thank you.

Amen.

Oh, and I LOVE frog legs. 'cept there's always one in the batch that tastes like he shit himself when they did him in.

I keep thinkin bout that cartoon with the frogs on little wheelboards outside the kitchen.

make the dinner date a little late in the stay and i'll find a way to be there. i'll bei n VA for thr 4th, probably spend 1-2 days there, then, depending on who is still there, i had plans to go either north to bostonish or west to CO. that could easily be changed to taking a southward dip into texas, since i was half planning to go there after CO anyway and it's quasi on the way.

I'll have a car that week, as it turns out, so we can set a date just about any time in that week. If I'm at the farm, I can come into town for dinner sometime. I doubt if I could talk Oxsan into coming with, however.

Come to think of it, however, perhaps JEB could bring Fred down one day during that week and enjoy some REAL Tex-Mex food one night that week. I could work on Dad on that score, but I wouldn't want to make any commitments on his behalf. Spending that much time away from home is a trial for him, I would think. And like me, he doesn't care too much for people making commitments on his behalf without prior consultation.
