sugarbabies….

im a simple girl…dont laugh..its true…

ok ok .. a lot of my hoodies and t shirts are cashmere…but…you know… simple cashmere…

sooo…when Abdul (the cutest driver in DC… in a simple black town car) .. picked us up last night…. we went across the river to one of my fave little hole in the wall cafe’s for a bite…

IOTA

they have a new chef….so i was a teeny bit apprehensive.. BUT… i am happy to report..

that the new guy… is doing great….maybe even better than the last fella…

the salmon with ginger something … was great..a little sweet..maybe a honey glaze???

and the Burger… (boring i know …but i was feeling carnivorous..) was one of the best ive had of late…

the music was free.. open mike night… sometimes you get what you pay for…but…

generally speaking they have great music..

billy joe shaver, james mcmurtry, nora jones, etc etc have all graced the stage….

when i excused myself to “powder my nose” … i started chatting with the waitress…she asked how every thing was…and i must have sounded like more of a foodie than i am …because the chef introduced himself…

turns out …he used to live in my town in NC … sooo …when i asked if he could whip up my hometown fave… shrimp and grits….

a big ole grin crossed his face…

he told me … he would put grits in the kitchen…not on the menu, mind you

and next time …

he promised…

grinning slyly… to reallly impress me…

oh sugar babies..im in texas…. Austin..Texas…mostly it is great… and dont get me wrong…its one of my verry fave places in the world…

the beer is cold, the food is hot, the music is live…

but you better get here fast……the face of austin is changing…and i cant imagine that it will be for the better…. it reminds me of poor jenna jamesons new face lift.. its trying too hard…pulled too tight…. the collagen doesnt help either..not that shes ugly..shes just not the same…shes over done…

jenna jameson

the cranes over downtown Austin are slapping up luxury loft style conds everywhere…and the bungalows we’ve always adored here… are being torn down…granted they are putting in cool mod homes….and y’all know i have weakness for all things moderne…but… that only makes me more conflicted…

Austin has always been cool… BUT not necessarily hip.. cool doesnt go out of style… but things that are hip today..are by definition NOT hip tomorrow…. and the hip factor here is pretty high right now… and well…hip is heavy……. and austin might just find she is falling in on herself tomorrow…

in the meantime… im enjoying it while i can…. and having wayyyyy more fun than i deserve… and you should hurry up and get here while

  • you can still find yourself in an old dance hallwith no AC…. drinking a beer..at 1pm….yeah!
  • cowboys still wear starched shirts and ask you to dance
  • football fans here are still fanatics.. hook em horns!
  • you can still have a cigar with kinky…. i love kinky
  • you can still hear steve earle & reckless kelly on the radio…
  • you can still buy a nice little house for about 150k
  • you can still get a migas plate at magnolias 24/8..sorry we’re open
  • you can still get a Fat Bob..(a burger with a fried egg on itno shit & its good as hell) at the hills cafe
  • you can still get ANY food ..fried… including avacado and cheesecake…yummers…

i dont know what will happen in Austin.. but i sure do hope…she stays independent, spirited, and weird

xoxo
