Our favorite paw-tio in town

Everypupper has to have a favorite place to spend their time when they aren’t busy napping in the sun, barking at the Amazon guy, or plotting how to get the squirrel who dared run in their yard. Thor’s favorite place to kick back is at Tejas Bar and Grill located at the corner of Line Avenue and Pierremont. This little corner of the world is a great place to sit out and watch the nightlife of the Line Avenue corridor, whether that be at neighboring Oyster Bar or even around the corner at Superior Steak House. Thor doesn’t care if its morning, noon, or night because Tejas has a fantastic brunch menu and and even more exciting dinner menu and he knows he will get a nibble or two of my food. Thor loves Tejas so much that we even held his birthday there in 2018.

Thor’s perspective:

Ma and I like to try new and exciting places to eat and people watch. I don’t generally like people, but the idea of grabbing up greasy little treats before they hit the floor makes dealing with the public much more bearable. I really like when Ma loads me up in my stroller and takes me to Tejas. Wes and his crew really know how to make a dog feel welcome with the giant fans, chilled water bowls, and sometimes even dog specific snacks. One time Ma accidentally dropped a whole chicken wing and my life flashed before my eyes. I knew if I lunged and grabbed it, she would get so mad at me buuuuut when would the opportunity come again for me to have a WHOLE CHICKEN WING to myself. Never. Sadly though, Pops grabbed it before I could waddle over to it and threw it in the trash. Sometimes, when its late at night and quiet, I still think about that chicken wing….

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
