Drinks with me and Mullet for starters. What part of Houston? I work downtown live southwest of town.

We have a fantastic museum district, an incredible food scene...and thatís about it.

Thatís where I worked when I first moved to Houston, the Galleria gets nutty with traffic especially around holidays. Lots of good food near by though!

Yep. Remember that from when I was working near there in 2008.

If your number is the same, I'll give you a call when I get in Sunday night.

While you're there you should hit up the best BBQ place in Texas and get yourself a McRib.

I'm down for a meet-n-greet, just let us know when and where. I'd suggest Killen's BBQ, or any number of Tex Mex restaurants.

I don't think so, but the flagship in Pearland has a line out the door every single day. Personally, while it's good, I like Joe's BBQ in Alvin better. Probably a bit far for you northwest folks, though.

This is the mecca for Texas bbq:

County Line on 2222 in Austin is good, too, great scenery. The Houston location in NW Houston is also good, but can't quite capture the experience of the Austin location.
