Hi Austin folks! Those who were around about 6 months ago remember that I came for a quick weekend to plan a Conference (Association For Recorded Sound Collections - www.arsc-audio.org) and used your tips. We had our Board dinner at Manuels but it was Haloween weekend so other CHs were busy. I did go on a BBQ expedition with Greg Spence (great guy! You folks are lucky to have him!)on that Sunday.
Well the Conference is coming up and fly down on March 29th - a Tuesday and depart early eveing on Sunday. Based at the Raddison. They'll keep us busy during the day and Saturday night's banquet is at Threadgills (where I had lunch last time). I had problem finding lots of live music (yep!0 in October because 1) there was an football game AWAY and 2) There was a beer company sponsored hard rock festival in many clubs. I already searched the Austin Chronicle Web Site for acts and see that a favorite - Redd Volkert is playing on Congress.
Anyway, I'm wondering if you guys(and gals) still get together on Friday nights at Manuels? Also, may be able to hook up with some of you for Sunday lunch as I planned at 6pm flight back home (Philadelphia) and will be sans car.
Any new places in the Raddison area that I should know about? (I'm not into pepper unfortunately though I made it through Manuels with some guidance. But I do want MORE Texas BBQ. W/O a car do I have to settle for Stubbs?
