Chow lines

Lines of people waiting to dine were seen outdoors at Katz’s, IHOP, Furr’s, Luby’s, Marco Polo, and Threadgill’s. Marco Polo was doing its usual Saturday dim sum, according to a neighbor who goes along with a group on this day. Although there was no line, many were the vehicles parked in an otherwise deserted little strip mall, obviously dining at La Playa Mariscos. This looks like a place to try. H-E-B and City Markets were closed, along with HoFu, but Albertson’s and Randall’s stores were jumping. CVS (formerly Eckerd drugstores) and Walgreen’s were jammed. BookPeople seemed to have a lot of tourists seeking Austin souvenirs. Right now, BookPeople has very fresh Black Jack and Beeman’s Pepsin gum in stock, plus Teaberry, but no Clove. After picking up the few items sought, we rushed back to be home for the game. We spotted but didn’t take time to stop at the Santa Rosa carnitas truck at the Aquarius pulga on Pleasant Valley, but someday we will. When we have time, the truck’s not there; when we don’t, it is. This is the one that always has customers, the one with the dancing pigs painted on the side.
