Phase 1, Check

So, I targeted a few companies and cities with my resume last week. Because you care, those cities were: Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Atlanta, DC, Boston and NYC. I was surprised at the results. First, I was expecting big response from DC and not much of anything from Texas. It was the opposite. Therefore, next week begins the Texas installment of InterviewPalooza. Not to mention I have also 3 midterms next week. Oh, and my two jobs, lets not forget about those. Posting will obviously be spotty.

Before I become absorbed, I did want to mention a new restaurant, Urban Bistro. It is what took over the space formerly known as George, which was formerly known as The Riviera. The owner, who is interestingly an Israeli, also owns Aurora, which has been catapulted into the realm of 5-star.

Urban Bistro is excellent; Med. and Middle Eastern, good price point and casual-chic atmosphere. Our table of 5 enjoyed greatly. If you are a dessert fan you will not want to miss the trio of Creme Brulee, wow!
