If you end up in that area you aren't too far from a food truck that sells probably the best sandwich I have ever had, and a vegan food truck that is pretty incredible (and I'm a total carnivore). There is also a vegan donut food truck with really good donuts (but they are like $2.00 I think) and a vegan BBQ truck that is supposed to be good but I haven't tried it yet. Airport Blvd also supposedly has some good restaurants but I haven't ventured out to any of them.

Yeah I think we're going to pull the trigger. I'd prefer to be in a busier spot but it'll probably be good to be in North Campus for 1LOL. I didn't even think about food carts near it, that definitely adds to the appeal.

Also, is it standard to put these obnoxious application fees to apply to apartments in Austin? I haven't run into this before.


Very common, I would be shocked if they didn't exist.

Also, at in-n-out you have to get fries well done animal style to make them worthwhile.

I feel left out being a non-foodie. Can we please get back to talking about how to be the complete gunner?

I just like food that is tasty, I wouldn't consider myself a foodie.

How to be a gunner: you're in Texas. Just go buy one.

Considering this is in response to "teach us to law school," we can conclude that law school will teach us (1) we have no souls upon entering law school and (2) having no soul seemingly precludes one from escaping law school. On the basis of (1) and (2), we can further conclude that if being stuck in law school is sufficient for "being taught to law school," our end, then our end is necessarily achieved just by showing up.

Just got an updated E-FAN, and it looks like the school is re-classifying me as a TX resident!

Texas


If you are in the Austin area you should look for Austin Beerworks, Hops and Grains, Jester King, and Circle Brewing. If in Houston Karbach and St. Arnold's are both excellent. Good nationally distributing breweries include Founders, Goose Island, Stone, Lagunitas, O'dell, and Six Point. All of these breweries have a variety of offerings that should be able to suit your tastes.

Same here...does the LOI apply to wait lists? Do I need to withdraw from the schools I haven't heard from?

Fuck yes on Founders. IMO, Michigan beer is on par with any U.S. brewing scene.

But to Goose Island? Two thumbs -- down. Regardless of how good their beer is, we should avoid supporting corporate takeover of craft breweries. Anheuser Busch has ruined enough lives.
