Re: “Sol [Closed]

The food and service were great. This isn't the usual formula Mexican food found in national or local chains. The menu is well thought out and it all works with an upscale twist. Don't miss the Pollo Relleno.

Re: “Blue Bar

I like this place, its got a laid back vibe ... not pretentious. I've seen some really talented artists come through during the week. Weekends are more for the dancing type, I would prefer to see a band.

Re: “Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The saucer offers a very knowledgeable staff. They can tell you what beer you will probably like, even if you aren't much of a beer drinker. It is very relaxed and has lots of comfortable seating. The beer garden is a great place to hang out, especially when the garage doors are open.

Re: “Cafe Coco

I've had the pasta and burgers here, and they're both really good. The atmosphere is pretty nice and laid back - definitely more towards a younger college-aged crowd. You can sometimes feel a little unwelcome from some of the patrons if you don't fit into the normal customer group, but I've never felt that from the service. It's a good place if you're really hungry at night because it is open 24 hours, but the area is a little scary if you have to park too far from the restaurant.

Re: “Mafiaoza's

I love good pizza and Mafiazo's definitely delivers.. Great tasting pies for sure. BUT - Its very expensive for pizza.. I like going here. Would go here more often but once you get a couple of drinks, a salad to share, and a pizza, you have already dropped at least $60.00. There are a lot more restaurants I would go to before Mafiazo's if I am planning on dropping that kind of coin... Its in a great neighborhood, great atmosphere at the restaurant, very nice patio, but in the end its just pizza. Delicious pizza. :)

Re: “Douglas Corner Cafe

Austin resident, Toni Price, hit the stage last night in Nashville, at the Douglas Corner Cafe. The dimly lit venue, with it’s brick lined walls and green tinted lighting, was a quaint compliment to the singer’s sultry voice. The evening, which started as a low-key acoustic session, quickly morphed into a whiskey driven walk down memory lane for Price and her audience. Reminiscing about late night jam sessions, Price became not only the evenings entertainment, but an instantaneous friend, drawing her audience in like a moth to a flame. Known as “the queen of the back-porch blues,” Price belted out songs about the blues, life, love, and learning, with numbers like ”Cats and Dogs,” “Lucky,” “Like the Sun,” and “Moonlight Blues,” many of which were written by Gwil Owens, who provided last night’s acoustic guitar. Each song was followed by a shot of whiskey, making the bar tender a permanent part of the act. Price’s voice is definitely what draws people to her. A self confessed talentless songwriter, she laughed and slurred, “if I had to write my way out of a paper bag, I’d still be in it.” Owens, on the other hand, is better left to the writing and playing, as heard in his attempt to throw in background vocals on a couple of songs. Dressed in a nude-pink shimmering dress, that came inches above the knee, Price posed and smiled through many of the more upbeat songs, while drunkenly weeping through the sadder ones. Her performance, though whiskey fueled, was nonetheless a delight for all in attendance. She joked that she was going to write a memoir entitled “Who the Hell Remembers?,” which seems ever so appropriate, and explained what “irons” are. According to Price, “irons are tiny pieces of irony.” which was followed by a wave of laughter, as were many of her interjections. Price appears as a cross between Emmy Lou Harris, Sheryl Crow, and Janis Joplin. The singer, now 48, resembles Emmy Lou, with her long flowing grayed hair, sounds eerily like Sheryl Crow, and drinks more whiskey than even Janis Joplin could have. With her red draped shawl, which she clung to in a manner that would make any burlesque fan proud, her tiny sequined dress, and unshaved “all natural legs,” Price surprisingly came off as a sexy, sultry blues singer, worthy of any good Vegas lounge. It’s no surprise that she has long been revered as one of Austin’s diamonds, rough as it may be. Price currently has seven albums available, all of which are available on Amazon. Swim Away (1993) Hey (1995) Sol Power (1999) Low Down and Up (1999) Midnight Pumpkin (2001) Born to Be Blue (2003) Talk Memphis (2007) For more info on Toni Price, visit: www.toniprice.com And check out NPRs feature on Toni at: http://www.npr.org/programs/morning/features/2002/feb/price/020218.price.html Author: Rosemary Haskins, co-owner of WaterWorks Entertainment ORIGINAL POST @ http://rosemaryrocks.wordpress.com/2009/04/19/toni-price-30-songs-and-30-shots/

Re: “Springwater

I have been in the company of many coots ,drunkards ,old farts. Young hip musical genius from time to time,from local bands to international bands. Bands that were famous (may I add with everyones refusal to let me in on the little secret). I have enjoyed it all.Springwater is just out and out plain old fun or boring no in betweens.The one place on earth you can go no matter who you are and be annoyed or be buzzing and/or drunk and leave with tons of friends.A new place for old faces and Hoffa is buried out back.

Re: “417 Union

The food is really good but I don't like the prices. I usually end up spending 10 or 11 dollars for meat and two and drink.
