PSG Road Trip

DMR and I are headed to the Dirty Dirty tomorrow morning! We will be hitting Memphis, Nashville, Austin and Houston. In Memphis, we'll be in the trusted hands of our hosts, Team Plumley, who never steer us wrong in that city. I've been promised some tasty palettas in Nashville during the day and in the evening we'll be attending a Sounds minor league baseball game, where Chik-Fil-A sandwiches are part of the concessions.

My interests in Austin primarily concern barbeque joints I've been unable to get out to while attending SXSW, including: Smitty's and Kreuz in Lockhart and the Salt Lick in Driftwood. Maybe we'll have time to fit in Louie Mueller's in Taylor. We'll get some Mexican to sate Dan, perhaps some breakfast at Juan in a Million which my coworker Kendel has suggested, although the room service breakfast at our hotel looks really good and might be our only chance to get some fruit on this trip!

We'll only be in Houston for less than 24 hours, and really only to attend the Mets - Astros game at Enron Minute Maid Park! This will be a historic day as it will mark the completion of Dan's lifelong quest to attend a game in every current major league ballpark. Of course once the new parks are built, he won't be able to make that claim, but we'll cross that bridge once we come to it.

hey sujan (and dan)! my brother's in austin and lives for eating at the saltlick. only word of warning -- get there early because there's a crowd. and my brother always gets the all-you-can-eat mix platter with sausages, brisket, and something else, with several sides. and if you get it re-filled before you leave, they let you take all of the leftovers home. why am i (a vegan) telling you how to score extra meat? they're going to revoke my membership.
