Knife Edge

For some reason, Marita Beth wanted Chili’s tonight. So, after lounging around the house the majority of the day, we went there for some well-earned food.
Knife Edge
Yeah. That’s pretty much how the day went.
Cheers.

Big Shots

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

24 February 2010
Another PubGuys show. This show took place at Big Shots Sports Cafe in Bedford. While Big Shots is not necessarily my favorite PubGuys location, it’s a great bar in and of itself. They have an excellent selection of food complemented with a pretty decent selection of beer. If you find yourself in Bedford, check out Big Shots.

Cheers.

Mimi’s Bloody Mary

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

21 February 2010
This Sunday, one of our last free until June, we found ourselves a bottle shy of our regular Zing Zang. I could have run to the store & bought some – because we now can buy mixers on Sunday although we still cannot buy alcohol (bloody stupid Texas laws), but instead opted to take the wife on a ride to the Highlands where we angled in for Brunch/Lupper at Mimi’s. We were told 15 minutes would be our wait, so we headed into the bar – where we waited 10, at the bar, for someone to even acknowledge us. No sooner had we placed our order for two bloody marys then our buzzer went off and we left to be seated. The bartender subsequently brought very subpar bloody marys to our table to complement our exceptional breakfast foods.
Mimi's Bloody Mary
Cheers.

Eggdrop Soup

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

19 February 2010
Holy shit, but photographing soup is hard! I had no idea. I tried & failed to take numerous photos of a fairly attractive soup, but failed – miserably – eventually giving up and taking this photo of the bowl and wonton strips
Eggdrop Soup.
The dinner, however, was a delightfully spur of the moment evening out with my wife, marred only by the über-geek behind the counter that insisted on talking at us.
Cheers.

Well, look at that. More quesadillas. I’ll bet they’re from Abuelo’s, too. This time we took our Kelly with us!

Pub Guys Recording Session

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

PubGuys Recording Session

27 October 2009

My day was spent with an eye on the clock, ’cause once again, I was going to be sure to attend the PubGuys recording session, and this time, I didn’t want to be late! I got my wish—in fact, I got chauffeur service! Kyle was able to stop and pick me up on his way on down Hwy 287 to the Firehouse Grill where today’s recording was to take place.

This is a great place, by the way . . . and a little too off-the-beaten path to be as well-patronized as it deserves.  It’s in Mansfield, in the same shopping center with the Home Goods and Marshalls store . . . right along Hwy 287.  Awesome food, huge selection of beers, (Rahr Octoberfest is on tap!) full bar, and great people!  Check it out.

It was a good session . . . made a little more special when the pub/restaurant owner came over to join the guys at the mics!

Our Table at Bobby V's

Our Table at Bobby V's

14 December 2008

Another day off!  A girl could get spoiled! 😉

Kyle and I have really enjoyed spending a couple of days together where the most important thing we are obligated to do, is eat a couple of meals and walk the dogs!  We were hungry for a really good burger today, and ended up at Bobby V’s.  We weren’t disappointed, either.  The atmosphere was fun—with three or four different football games on various televisions.  And our burgers were in fact, delicious.  One errand to buy cat food on the way home was the closest we really came to being responsible. 

As I write this, we’re relaxing, with two tired dogs, and watching some mindless TV.  Life is good.  Tomorrow I’ll get back to the work at hand, but this weekend has really been divine.  I needed the downtime much more than I had realized.  I hope all my friends and customers who might read this, will forgive me.

PF Chang Rails

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

26 November 2008
I’m not a big fan of Chinese food, but tonight I was in the mood of P.F. Chang. My wife, it turns out, had never been to one, so we found a local restaurant and went there for dinner.
PF Chang's
I had a nice Malbec with their Orange Beef dinner while she had something else entirely. The photo is of their ornamental separators with the bar and a bartender out of focus at the end.
Cheers.

Chili's To Go

   Posted by: krmb    in Daily

24 November 2008
It’s amazing to me that after a long weekend, neither of us wants to stay in and relax on Monday nights. Maybe it’s just because we don’t want to cook on Monday nights. Anyway, we ended up at Chili’s for dinner. We were sitting in the "Lounge" area in a small booth next to a window. I liked the way this image composed itself for me complete with reflections and cropping

New Camera Experiments Continue

Trying the Night Setting on the New Camera

13 November 2008

Here’s another link to a Galveston Recovery/Hurricane Ike story:

http://www.galveston.com/news198/

The news is still bleak from that crazy little island.  It becomes increasingly evident that the island will never be the same—so many businesses that will never be back, others that need six to twelve months to even think about re-opening.  It does start to make one wonder just what flavour of insanity gripped those who in the nineteenth century decided that building a city on a small barrier island was a good idea.

On the subject of Galveston, recently I very much enjoyed reading the featured article in the Fort Worth Weekly, entitled A Tale of Two Storms by Tom Curtis.  It was the cover story and Kyle spotted it and brought it home for me, knowing I’d devour it, as I do nearly everything dealing with Galveston and her history.  This article actually reminded me of some of the points I’ve written about: questionable media coverage, evacuation weariness, and he clearly outlines Ike’s assault and explains why the damage was so great.  It’s well worth the read, so for sharing purposes, I found it online, here:  http://www.fwweekly.com/content.asp?article=7279

Today’s photo is pathetic, but it’s what I’ve got.  I am definitely at the bottom of a very big learning curve. 

We grabbed a quick dinner at Chili’s where a delightful young waitress by the name of Kayla saved us from our own crankiness over the unruly behaviour of all the children in the bar!  Yes—in the bar.  <shrug> She said all the right things and offered all the right sympathy/empathy.  If you visit the new Chili’s at Little Road and 287, ask for Kayla—she rocks.  I’m pretty sure she isn’t old enough to drink the margaritas she brings us, but she’s savvy beyond her years.  Anyway, our meal was tasty and the annoying people all left before we did!
