Austin, Texas isn’t on the Insterstate 10 corridor, but The Hawk ventured up from San Antonio with a invite to a poker game in his back pocket.
Upon recommendation from the host of the game, I stopped at Stubb’s BBQ for lunch. Thanks for the tip Ryan! Damned if that wasn’t a great meal.
After lunch I walked down to 6th Street, which has a ratio of about 7 bars for every 1 other business. My kind of neighborhood. So I slipped into Buffalo Billiards to shoot a little pool, and I was pondering my next shot when Laranya came over and asked me if I was playing alone.
Laranya was a black girl from Tennessee who was in town to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Tall, with short-cropped hair, sharp features and an hourglass body, she turned some heads in that joint, that’s for sure.
So naturally I told her I would love to play her, as I don’t make a habit of turning down a challenge from a strikingly beautiful woman. We shot pool together for about an hour. Man.. the image of her sipping that bottle of beer.. I might need a moment alone here.
Alas, I had plans and so did she, so I made my way to the poker game.
A huge shout-out to the Mixed Game Monday crew! I had a great time, thanks for everything, and keep a seat for me, because I have this feeling I’ll be back in Austin at some point. You guys absolutely kick ass.
Up next: Houston, Galveston, and the Gulf Coast. I wonder what wonder tomorrow may bring!
