This is not quite Gift Guide, but while I’m telling you to buy shit: You should go to Hill Country Barbecue. I went last night and it was raaaaad. The food is delicious but really casual (I had ribs, pullled pork, mac and cheese, and sweet potatoes), the cocktails are delicious but pretty strong (I had vodka with smoked pineapple, egg white, and cayenne.) And you can hang out and catch up with friends for literally hours and nobody bothers you, except to bring you more drinks.
A++ — would get stuffed and tipsy again.
