The son of an old Austin buddy and I were going to have dinner Thursday, going out for Indo/Pak. The weather made us push it to Friday and we went to Malabar by way of Patterson & Lauderdale since we wanted to avoid the chaos of Short-Pumpitudia. Had a fine meal of samosas, channa sag & curried fish (too bad it was that mudfish, tilapia). We talked about his folks and how they were coming up this week in an RV. Tres honkey.
Then we went for a beer at Commercial Tap House. I had a Blue Mountain Full Nelson and Jacques had a Victory 4-y.o. barleywine (10% ?) both of which were excellent.
I was home by 8:20, sensible person that I am.
