What's up in Huntsville?

I'm travelling here a lot lately, and need some help with finding good eats. I've been here a few times in the last year, and have done some exploring. I've eaten at Cotton Row (my favorite so far), 801 Franklin (very good, if a little stuffy), Grille 29 (chain-like IMO, probably not going back, although I had a fine beer there), Surin (on Airport Rd, very good duck, nice martini), Thomas BBQ (love the pulled pork; ribs good, not great; people really nice), Ol' Heidelburg (zzzzzz......), Greenbriar (away from, not on 565; killer hushpuppies, OK BBQ), 1892 East (nice beer selection, food OK), Dreamland (good pulled pork, not writing home about it, when I have Andy Nelson's killer Q every few weeks back in Baltimore).

I gather I should check out Viet Huong and Charm Thai. I'll try to take care of that business this week.

Any recommendations about where to get a good beer and hear some music would be welcome as well. I've been to the Nook, which seems like a good find for this hop-head. I haven't seen anything yet that I'd call a club here.

So. What next? I can't afford to eat at Cotton Row every night!
