Lunch: Tina cooked pork ribs in a soy sauce cooking liquid and served it with broccoli stems and corn.

Dinner: I joined some Austin food bloggers for trivia night at Flying Sauce Draught Emporium (815 W 47th St # 100, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 454-8200‎).

I ordered the bratwurst (in a bun) which turned out to be more like a bockwurst.

I also ordered a chili cheese fries for the table since the waitress said it was her favorite thing on the menu. Ours came without any chili. We ended up getting the fries for free because of the missing chili. They were really busy and the kitchen was slammed. We also lost the trivia contest - but did pretty well. I think we got 80% of the answers right for each of the three ten-question rounds.
