i wish @Christer would get in here and tell his D Scott story

Alright, alright.

So my family moved to a different house in Manhattan when I was in 8th grade. The house was previously owned by the Fritchen family. Years later, when I was an engineering student and had a reason to know/care who Dave/D Scott Fritchen were, my dad told me this story.

When we first moved in to the house, I picked this room with a weird little unfinished attic/closet connected to it. This was, allegedly, D Scott's room when he had lived there with his parents. My dad and I decided it would be cool to finish out the attic space with carpet, drywall, etc. So one day, my dad was in there securing loose pieces of OSB on the floor and saw something in the space below the floor and the ceiling of the lower level. He reached in and pulled out a crumpled up pair of nasty red panties that had been stashed underneath the floor boards. To this day, those panties are the first thing that I think of whenever anyone mentions D Scott.

Elon Musk is a total stud. Will be awesome when launches like this are a regular occurrence.

do they have a liquor license? what is the inside like?

i believe they are getting a liquor license but don't have one yet. the inside looks like bare walls and concrete floors. i think the furniture/equipment is from grizzly's or whatever used to be there.

Sounds delicious. We should go together sometime.

i'm down.

Anybody heard anything about the new Cajun place that opened in Plaza West?

the owner is the only one there at the moment. she is very nice and the food is solid but expect to wait for 20 mins to place your order and another hour to 90 mins before you get your food. i hope she hires some people soon because the etouffee, fried chicken and jambalaya were very good and i would like to go again.

Had Dancing Ganesha for lunch. The lunch menu is very limited. There's basically 5 portions (chicken leg, naan, rice, Indian beans* and Indian coleslaw*, dessert) plus whatever dish you picked (lamb, fish, chicken, or veggie). I wish I could have just gotten a big portion of the lamb that I ordered instead of all the sides. Everything tasted fine though, just wanted more lamb. Also you couldn't adjust the spice level for the lunch special, so I missed out on getting to try "Indian spicy" food.

I also thought it was funny that is the only option they give you and they serve it for $9. I'm no baller on a budget, but a lunch special like that in Aggieville would usually run $6-$7.

Need to try the dinner menu so I can get a better idea of all this stuff.

* - I am not going to attempt to remember what these sides were actually called, so you are stuck with my white midwesterny descriptos.

the menu for the one in Minneapolis (same owners) is a lot more expanded, so i'm hoping they get to that level eventually.

anyway, the pictures of the manhattan menu are a little fuzzy and i can't tell if it says cocktails are $1 or $7, can anyone confirm? that pomegranate martini looks good :D
The menu will indeed be expanded in the coming months. We spoke with one of the owners and she was telling us about all of the different types of food they want to do in the future. Sounds like they will start doing more sauces than the 3 or 4 that they do now, other traditional Indian dishes, and some awesome dish that basically sounded like an Indian burrito(tasty stuffs wrapped up in some sort of giant Indian crepe). I am hoping that the menu additions come sooner rather than later. Also, the cocktails are $7

Alright, one more update on Dancing Ganesha. Tried the lunch specials today. $9 for your choice of chicken tiklka masala, lamb vindaloo, or veggie masala. Comes with a heap of rice, beans, tandoori chicken or a slaw (depending on whether you got the vegetarian dish or not), 2 slices of naan, and some sort of dessert. Today was a jelly kind of thing made from dates, cashews, wheat, and some mixture of spices. It was surprisingly good esp. on the naan. Everything was very good and fresh. Meals came out quickly. This place is going to be awesome.

I was pleasantly surprised with how good Dancing Ganesha is already after only being open for 2 days. The interior was nicer than other Indian restaurants that I have been to. Tried the 3 chicken dishes and all were very tasty, especially the chicken makani. The surprise of the night was the gobi manchurian appetizer. It was one of the best things I have eaten at any Indian restaurant. Also, the chili pakorasi were very good too. The wait staff def seemed a little clueless but it didn't take away from the experience.

We also got to speak with the owner and found out that the current menu is just to get them started and will probably be added to within the next few months once they get everything streamlined. She mentioned some very delicious sounding dishes that they were considering. Also, their lunch specials sound awesome and I will have to go and try that very soon. All in all, very happy with the new addition to Aggieville and Manhattan.

Does Kindle have a thing where you can read when you want, but then switch over to audio book where you left off, and then switch back? Because that would be pretty awesome.

they do but, unfortunately, ASOIAF is not one of the supported series yet.

all kinds of professors, teachers, doctors, etc believe stuff that isnt true.

yeah, a good thing to remember is they are mostly dumbasses

Carl Riblett will smash you in the face with a battle axe until you die from it.

Carl Riblett is actually a certified dumbass.

Hey, he's my parents' neighbor and he's not a certified dumbass! He's a smart man...he just doesn't like you bafoons putting your elbows on his desks while he lectures.  :shakesfist:

nope, sorry, certified dumbass. dude scored a 14 on his ACT, asked coworkers to stop showing off by using large 3 syllable words, and tried to settle disagreements by challenging people to a footrace. he did, however, claim to be capable of dunking on a 10' goal which is pretty impressive for a dude that is 5'-4"

I ported over my main number to Google Voice but it was pretty easy for me since I am on Sprint. I like it a lot but am not sure how useful it would be if I didn't have the Sprint integration. Replying to texts on my computer/tablet/phone/whatever is pretty awesome. Can set different voicemail recordings for different groups of people. Google Voice still can't handle MMS, which is the main complaint.

We don't know who, but I would suggest it wasn't Omari, Watson, Jones or some other meaninless scrub.

There were 4 players planning on transfering. They were Will, Shane, Omari, and Nino.
