Very compelling piece here. And probably part of the reason I split the baby by grading restaurants of all price points on the same 1-10 scale. Of course, all have landed between 5-10. Tricky stuff. twitter.com/billaddison/st…
The review I am working on right now as me hungrier for the food about which I am writing than maybe any review I've ever written.

Scooter riders on @EvilMopacATX. That’s a first (I hope). Though probably faster than driving. I assume they are tourists. Reminds me of the time I ended up on a freeway on-ramp in Charleston (mostly sober). https://t.co/pK0Cct15gJ

Guy in a bro’d-out pick-up truck with Cali plates this afternoon careened over the dividers between MoPac regular lanes and express lane, nowhere near a legal entrance, sending debris flying up into my windshield and then proceeded to drive 95mph. That’s a new one, @EvilMopacATX

To paraphrase a great basketball mind: Math doesn’t win championships. A great coach who can make adjustments, a system that can thrive in the playoffs, cold-blooded superstars, and a culture of brotherhood do. Smh.
“Just glad we don’t have to go through another heartbreaking Game 7 loss.” Welcome to life as a Rockets fan in the 21st Century.
Credit to the great Steve Kerr and the Splash Brothers (and all the Warriors) for *knowing* they were going to win. Must be nice.
Looks like Mike D’Antoni will go down with Don Nelson, Cotton Fitzsimmons and Mike Fratello as the winningest coaches to never make the NBA Finals.
So embarrassed Beyonce had to see this. Such a predictable choke by the Rockets.
#Rockets are making Kevon Looney a lot of money.

Rockets fans didn’t want KD to pop his Achilles, either. But we’re fine with him sitting out the rest of this one. twitter.com/kbohls/status/…
RT @WindhorstESPN: Kevin Durant was averaging 45 minutes a game in this series
There’s a very small chance tonight’s game is the last ever played at Oracle Arena. Can’t imagine the Splash Brothers would let that happen. Fear this #Warriors/#Rockets game may be over by the end of the first half.
Like the cab driver in Mexico City who insisted I try her chicken tingas she had in a pot on her floorboard.
