That's too bad

Here's some other ideas:
* Velvet Taco
* Culinary Dropout

Either of those look good, or anyone have other ideas?

Both look good. Jack and Ginger's is another good hangout place.

What about the Mueller area?? Way easier to park and not as busy.
Torchy's Tacos in Mueller?
There is also a pizza place, and thai restuarant nearby. Several options that offer tons of parking.

Is it Thursday then?

Sure that sounds good to me. I had to Google to see where Mueller was, looks like it is near the I-35/183 area. I'm coming from near Ikea, so it isn't too far.

Not sure how Torchy's will be for dinner on a Thursday, but it is summer and people are on vacation. I'm up for any of those 3 options.


Please add your name to the Wikipost at the top if you'll be going. It will give us an idea how many to expect.

Call me a newbie but I couldnt find a way to edit the Wiki and add my name. How can I do it? I am for sure coming
Also, are you guys doing the Office Depot VGC promo? So far I have mainly done GC churning because I haven't found friendly places where to turn my VGC into MO. Can you please tell me if Austin is an MS friendly city? In this way I can at least start buying VGC this week and maybe we can get into detail during our dinner?
Tnx

That post was your 90th, so you can probably edit the wiki now.

Let's just plan for Torchy's in Mueller as someone suggested above:
1801 E. 51ST, Austin, TX 78723

If it is a total mess, we can find something else. But I think 6pm on a Thursday shouldn't be too bad.

Just another reminder... our next meeting is tomorrow:

Our next scheduled get together is Thursday Aug 2, 2018 at 6:00pm.
Location:

Torchy's (Mueller)
1801 E. 51ST, Austin, TX 78723

If Torchy's is too busy, there are a few other places in that same strip mall...a MOD Pizza, sushi, and Mediterranean restaurants.

Even if you haven't listed yourself in the Wiki at the top, feel free to drop by. If you have any problems finding the location or others, send me a PM.
