    Get a whole bunch of cheap heroin and shoot it in your groin.

    I've never actually had Franklin's but I've been to Salt Lick in Driftwood. If Franklin's is better than that, it's some damn good meat.

    Not me. I'd recommend the Salt Lick in Driftwood if you have a car.

    Threadgills is kind of an old timey place that has good food and entertainment. There were a couple of other bars that I really liked but I can't remember the names. I think one of them was on Lake Travis but there are probably a dozen like that.

    Go see the bats on Congress Street. Get there early and there is a hotel with a bar you can sit outside on the patio and wait for them to appear.

    That can be a pretty good show all by itself.
