Badass Bim Bab Not In Bubbaland

If you haven't noticed the brand spanking new shopping center near the corner of North Lamar Boulevard and Justin Lane, then perhaps you are not Korean. The stately shopping complex features a massive Asian market, liquor store, burger joint, billiard parlor, and state-of-the-art karaoke rental suites. And, by the way, they are all Korean-owned. Only the billiard parlor and karaoke suites are open right now, but where else can you and your friends rent a private, soundproof, karaoke room, comfortably outfitted with high-tech audio and video, at 3am!!!!!! And BYOB!

Khronicle Kudos

The kudos have been pouring in thanks to our huge splash in the November 5th edition of the Austin Chronicle. We are thankful that the Chronicle's Food Goddess, Virginia Wood, has not completely forsaken us. Still, the Chron's "not" stoner editorial folks have never quite been able to pimp us without misspelling a name or mangling a link. This time, they got it all right except for calling us the "Austin Sushi Group". Where did that come from? It's certainly not on the site anywhere. Uh, I think the site is You don't call, The Auschron Group, right? Sheesh.

And by the way, we bounced a bunch of people who tried to subscribe to this mailing list recently, so, even though you probably aren't reading this, try again. I tested it by signing up a bunch of people I know who weren't already subscribed.
