Houston to Pawleys

Filed under: Blog — Roman @ 8:12 pm

Trevor and I will drive to South Carolina tomorrow, via Luling, LA. The car is packed and all his post-graduation business is getting wrapped up. In early June I’ll be heading back to Boston for reunions and a wedding. In particular, I’m very excited about my fraternity brother’s wedding on the Cape. He and his groom have planned an afternoon cocktail reception, which I will take close notes on for the party La and I throw…one day. A good post on the best burger in Houston coming up, once I figure out how to download pictures from my phone. In short: Tornado Burger in Stafford serves a spicy burger that is out of this world.

New Bidness Cards

Filed under: Blog — Roman @ 2:51 pm

Totally sweet business cards from Zazzle.com arrived today. Hat tip to Kath at KathEats.com who blogged about getting hers. Laura is NUTS about this woman’s “real food” site. I’m more partial to her fella’s blog: brewandbake.com. Laura and I use his 100% whole wheat pizza dough recipe which is AWESOME.

The cards were $18.95 for 100. I think that’s a pretty good value. (Includes free shipping.)

There is a British company I considered using, called Moo which recently opened an office in Providence, RI. I know a few people that have used their skinny plastic cards. I think the cost is about the same, but don’t include the carrying case.

Something to aspire to
