Review: The Dog and Duck Pub — Austin, Texas

This is how bad I’ve been off my Geek Girl game lastly.  Back in September — yes, September! — the Roommate and I went to Austin for the free museum day.  We went to the Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas and spent several hours there wandering around.  We realized that we had a…

Reviews: Trailer Eateries here in San Marcos, Texas
