I never heard that CCN were formally regarded as being in a class apart just after the holy trinity, although they certainly were very well respected and likely viewed as somewhat better than the Penns and Dukes. I think I've taken as implicit all along that potential employers are going to...
Quote: Originally Posted by CTGuy too many people go to law school thinking it's a way of avoiding paying your dues and going automatically to the big time by spending an extra couple years in school. This needs to be emphasized in every law school thread. I can't count how many friends and acquaintances I've watched fail or get impatient at pursuing their chosen paths, be it in the job market or academia, and suddenly discover a few years...
Ok, let me work with those: Mexican: The big thing is to decide whether you're looking for Tex-Mex (e.g. chile con queso, fajitas, enchiladas in red sauce with cheddar cheese) or actual Mexican (mole, tacos that don't use lettuce, cheddar and tomatos, soup/caldo). If it's Tex-Mex, there are a lot of local chains that do a pretty solid, albeit not amazing, version of Tex-Mex: Ninfa's, El Tiempo, Cyclone Anaya's, Molina's, Pappasito's... out of those I'd recommend the...
The Aquarium and the Kemah boardwalk are Landry's owned tourist traps; avoid like the plague. The thing to realize with the Houston dining scene is that the fancy/trendy places just aren't all that impressive or interesting, and that the real good food is to be found at the myriad hole in the wall ethnic and "cheap eats" places you'll find scattered about on the fringes of town. If you want to throw out more specific ideas of what you are looking for, I can point you...
Quote: Originally Posted by Train Now are you only interested in using the $600 or the remaining refund you are getting? if so, all above options are good, while the other option is to open up an etrade account and use bits and pieces of your $600 to invest in a couple or one good solid stock. It could help you get your feet wet, and considering you said you were null and void about finance knowledge trying anything might be a good option at this...
Quote: Originally Posted by matadorpoeta the origin is that mexicans put lemon on/in everything; beer, meat, sauce, cereal, cheese, everything. we use lemon 10x a day. it tastes good. Huh? I can see that with limes, but lemons? I've worked with more than my share of Mexican immigrants (restaurant biz), but have met numerous ones who didn't know what a lemon was before coming to the U.S. and only used the word "limon" to refer to limes.

Quote: Originally Posted by Roikins Yeah, it seems like if you don't give 15% to wait staff, they get angry, thinking it's a right they get it. I usually will give 15-20% if the service is outstanding. If the service sucks, I don't leave anything. Well, it has pretty much developed into a nationally understood social contract. The server is obligated to provide quality service, and in return the customer is obligated to leave an appropriate...
Quote: Originally Posted by Kent Wang Aybojs, have you been to Beaver's in Houston? They just opened and are the best cocktail bar in town. Yep, went there a few weeks ago, and it turns out I knew the bar manager there. It's a nice place, and I hope the cocktail scene there doesn't get overshadowed by the restaurant's hype, which is why I usually don't care to work at or visit restaurant bars. It's a shame the market just isn't there for...

I've lurked here for some time and most of your posts come off as aggressive and douchebaggy despite all your potshots at people you deem pretentious or douchey. You seem to have this big need to act "real" and call out all the posers especially since you know, you graduated from Princeton where apparently, you were the "realest" one there. Wouldn't...
