The Square Circuit

Academia, parenthood, living in a bankrupt city, and what I read in the process.

Tuesday, August 07, 2007

The usual summer heat has returned to Austin, along with a persistent yuck that we are passing among ourselves. The boy couldn't go to his "drama camp" today because he woke up with a fever. I think he was pleased that he could play with his new spacemen and alien toys that we got him at Toy Joy.

We managed to drive out to Taylor to get meat at Louie Mueller's, which was absolutely as good as I remembered. That is serious brisket, and it's been a while since I've had the pleasure of just getting a bunch of meat and eating it off butcher paper. We also went to brunch at El Chile on Manor, which was absolutely excellent. (The chefs are from Jeffrey's, so of course.) Their take-out taco stand, El Chilito, comes highly recommended, but when the wife and I went we didn't have enough cash! I also took the boy for a haircut on Saturday morning and we got the breakfast tacos at Enchiladas y Mas afterwards--my all-time favorites.

Our time here, though, grows short. We leave Friday afternoon and hope to be in Pittsburgh by mid-day Sunday. Sigh.
