Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Any local Austin folks?

    There are several, one a little southwest of downtown, another farther northwest, and probably more but those are the two I've been to. The one southwest on loop 360 as mentioned, is quite spacious. And the method of ordering food at a walk-up line saves people from having to deal with waiters if coming at later times.

    We ate at Hopdoddy tonight. The burger was fantastic and the pilz was pretty good too. Might be a bit smallish for a big crowd though.

    why don't ya'll go to stubbs?

    fuck, emory quinn is playing. that makes me almost not wanna go deal poker.

    This would be cool. Would anyone else want to see a show that night? Maybe we could do dinner then a show later. Not like we'll have a problem finding a concert.

    Khoo: I assume you want the closest Rudy's (since it seems we've settled on Rudy's) to the airport.

    In that case:
    2451 South Capital of Texas Highway, Austin, TX (12.3 miles)
    11570 Research Boulevard, Austin, TX 78759-4036 (19.4 miles)
    7709 North FM 620, Austin, TX 78726 (25.6 miles)

    Rudy's is good (not the best) and cheap, and as others have mentioned: it's conducive to our mission in that it is easy for everyone to pay their own way without having a waitress look down her nose at us when we ask her to split the check.

    If you want something closer to the airport, let us know now so we can keep scouting.

    If you're wanting something closer to your hotel, you're going to have to tell us where you're staying.
    See what I did there?:winky:

    The only problem I see with Stubbs (other than the fact that we'd be stretching the idea of "20" in regards to their claim on their website that: "To twenty, Stubb’s can accommodate you!") is the live music. If Robert's actually needing to talk to us and get an accurate idea of what we're saying, this could be bad.

    I'm all for live music, but I've always found it to be a great hindrance to talking. A show afterwards wouldn't be a bad idea.

    I'm also not opposed to the idea of gather at someone's abode or hotel room for general shenanigan's if nothing else interests us and/or is too expensive.

    Mmmm BBQ.

    I've only been to Rudy's once and it was good! They're one of the few places I've been to in Texas that can make a really good BBQ sauce. There are BBQ places in Austin that are better overall but they're expensive and would have a difficult time accommodating a group this large since they're always packed.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Rudy's is a great choice. Not the best BBQ, but not offensive either.

    Unless someone says they need to split a room with me, I'm just going to sleep late Friday morning and then drive back home after our shindig. The car has to be back by noon Saturday anyway.

    If I get sleepy, I am an expert at finding hidden coves in which to park to get a couple of hours of shut-eye. Comes from my days of being semi-homeless.

    No prob! I really wasn't fishing for an invitation (shocking I know), but I did want anyone else to know that I can make another bed available if the need is there. I'm willing to pay for half a room to help a fellow forumer out, but sleep can be had anywhere if you're tired enough for free.

    I'm still going to try to drive home that night so I don't risk getting the car back late. I got an excellent deal on the car as long as I get it back between 11 and noon.

    All right, I am going to bust my ass and fucking go. Drive all the damn way from Waco and go.

    I think I can afford a hotel, though I could use some tips on where to stay.

    I don't wanna kill anybody. I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from.
