Car Decals, Tacky or tight?

Walk the Walk

Heeeey Corpus! So tomorrow is the illuminated night parade of Buc Days! I hope I see everyone there. Also, I found out Corpus has this sweet indie festival every even month and its called the Art walk. Basically for a day Corpus turns more into Austin, with acoustic musicians on every corner and independent jewelry vendors at various stops that are made by this sweet graffiti-ed up trolly which also had a live band on it! Dude I know. I also so so much sweet art, I was in paradise. Everyone was just walking around downtown and chatting and I met so many cool people, I had to double check make sure I hadn't entered the twilight zone. For a city that no longer wants to support the arts financially it sure looks like we know what we are doing when it comes to art festivals.

I also walked past the Ritz theater and saw that it is being renovated and they have all these neat performances lined up when its open. When its finished, I saw party at the Ritz, yeaaaah boi. Keep it real Corpus

Burger Bellies Unite!

I know everyone has gone to Whataburger, but I challenge you to order something knew. I recently ordered a number five (bacon cheese burger) on texas toast with pepper jack cheese and a side salad instead of fries, and let me tell you, my heart grew three sizes that day... probably all the cholesterol but that's alright.

I also heard Sonic has a new burger that has jalapeno poppers inside of it. Sounds like the revolution has finally hit Sonic and I aim to join it.

I just wanted to share my new found love of burgers with the world... or atleast Corpus also I'm hoping everyone will check out this site survey for transforming down town Corpus Christi.

Looks like someone has a case of the Mondays

Wow can't believe its already April!! The summer is coming up fast, which means finals are coming up faster. Don't panic, I have a few things that could help you clear your head. With the weather killing any beach activity you'll have to find things at home to occupy your mind and time. Try yoga, you can find videos on youtube to help you. Yoga centers the body and also stretches you out, nothing feels better than a good stretch. You can also pop in your headphones and find a peaceful place to meditate. If this leads to a nap even better, let your body just chill. I heard that watching t.v. actually stresses you out more, because you put off important things and it basically makes you brain dead while you are watching, so try to keep the tv watching to its lowest minimum.

Tonight at Del Mar College in the Wolfe Recital Hall, the music department is putting on a Brass Ensemble Concert. I'm guessing if Brass instruments are involved some jazz music will hopefully come up. The concert is April 12 (tonight!) at 7 p.m and admission is free, so go support the musical arts before they are taken away!!

Are you slow to wake up in the mornings? Then look for the Stripes with Taco Company logos on the buildings and inside you can get a breakfast taco with a 20 oz coffee for only 1.49. I personally start all my rough days this way, you can't beat that price and the tacos are really good and fresh.

Until next time , stay salty Corpus

It's been a long night in Corpus Christi

First of all, I'm sorry I fell off the blog scene for such a long time, work and school seemed to consume me for some time. I also recently bought an xbox and let modern warfare rule my free time. But I'm back to tell you thanks for being a fan and even if you don't hear from me for a while I will never be too far away!
Over the weekend Brad and I went to Galaxy Golf. My first thoughts before we found the place, which is located upstairs in Sunrise Mall, was how cool could this place be? Sunrise is a waste land. But we decided to try it out anyway. We walk in, and its dark, black lights line everything and pretty neon stars and plants hang from the walls and ceilings. 7 dollars for adult tickets which is cheaper than Treasure Island. Galaxy Golf actually reminds me of the more sinister Treasure Island. We begin at the first hole, which is just basically a straight shot and I'm a bit disappointed, but then we progress into the next room and the holes are out of this world. (ha) There are rocket ships blocking my way, and aliens trying to swat my ball out of the hole. Everything is neon and glowing even my hot pink ball. There are space stations and most of the holes have moving obstacles, new to the putt-putt scene of Corpus Christi. The best part about it, was Brad and I were alone for about 17 of the 18 holes, then when we were done putting the lady at the counter let us play pool on the glow in the dark pool table. For fourteen dollars the experience was definitely worth it.

Overall I give it 5 cheers for a sweet idea for a secret date. Also it has great location

I also saw Hot Tub Time Machine with my brother Marco, and we were both cracking up. This isn't a movie for young kids, I don't even think they would understand half of the jokes, but for the older crowd, especially if you lived in the 80's and thought it sucked, watch it. Go to Starplex though because I wouldn't pay 7.50 for a ticket to see that movie. It was mostly moments where you find your self saying "omg I can't believe they just went there"

Overall I give HTTM a score of 2 cheers for passing the time and making me laugh.

Sweet Nothings

I woke up today very excited for valentines day! I know its a silly holiday but if you are in a relationship you actually really enjoy its the one day you can do something extra corny and sweet and not get any slack for it. Because I bought Brad some super expensive nike basketball shoes, I decided I needed to save money on the rest of my purchases for the occasion, so I hit up the dollar store! Let me tell you, people think just because its a dollar store does not mean the items are any cheaper than the expensive stuff! I got candles, rose petals, candy and cards all for 7 bucks! You know I'll be going back for some heart balloons and streamers! It's the thought that counts so this holiday maybe you should show your bank account some love and scope out the dollar store! (but beware of dollar stores where items actually cost more than a dollar, they are usually a rip off)
Have you given any thought as to what you might do for valentines day? If not here are a few options, Go see a movie! Valentines day opens this weekend in theaters and Dear John is already out, yes these are some "chick flicks" but I promise they won't make you any less of a man if you watch them. I recently saw "Everybody's Fine" and wow, it was a really real and honest movie but talk about a tear jerker. Robert De Niro never lets me down.
Now let's talk about your food options. Breakfast in bed is a classic for good reasons, but this really only works if you live together. So if you want to try a romantic lunch, why not try packing a picnic or going to the Art Museum cafe, its cute has good lunch specials and is right on the water. Dinner is also another classic, Johnny Carino's and Montana Mike's both have dinner specials that include an appetizer, two entrees, and a dessert for about 20 bucks, cheap and yet still classy. Olive Garden is always nice but, can you say over done? and ridiculous wait time!

If you need some early excitement, Foreigner is going to be playing in Corpus tomorrow night at the American Bank Center!

Also ladies, don't think I forgot you, your man will be happy with basically anything as long as its from the heart or delicious! But if you want to show him how amazing you are, you could always cook up something delicious for dinner and gather around the tv to see the all star game! Lebron and Wayde on the same team?! should be illegal. Oh and just as a side note, make sure your man stays away from cloud 9 lingerie, they tell your man to come to a private party so they can buy their ladies lingerie but the add says men only! Um, why would your man not want to bring you too? and what if you are a lesbian and want to buy something sexy for your lady?! Cloud 9 needs to re-evaluate or get out, a men only lingerie party is bull! and sounds a bit suspicious to me.

But no matter what you do for your sweetie this V-day, make sure you tell them you love and appreciate them, because that is the greatest gift of all.

Work it Girl!

I have never really been much of a club person , mainly because I never have anything to wear, I'm notorious for wearing a shirt and jeans. But regardless this should never stop someone from going out and busting a move. (you see I can't even talk about clubs and sound cool!) So saturday was one of the rare occasions I went clubbing for my friend Trisha's birthday; we went to ESCALA. Yes the fabulous and relatively new gay club right here on staples behind Beamers. Brad and I were excited and a bit nervous, I mean what happens at a gay club? I expected feathers, flashing and lots of fondling and I got just about that.
The building looks awfully small from the outside but once you step in its like a whole different place. Walking in the friendly bouncer calls me sweetheart and charges me 5 bucks and Brad 10 bucks (10 for minors 5 for adults :D) we walk inside and there are lights and fog everywhere, its like an eighties music video in there. The Black Eyed Peas are bumping but its being chopped screwed and club remixed to perfection by the Dj. A huge bar is at my right as is a large glass door leading to an outside smoking patio. We walk passed the dance floor which is lined by red cushioned couches and find one of the private zebra stripped rooms. Here we find three more of our friends, apparently afraid to step out of this room and dance. But Trisha and rene arrived in time to save them and we all head out to a larger room filled with velvet seats and metal beads hang from the archways for privacy. I down my sex on the beach and brad finishes his XX (dos equis) and we are ready to go dance! But at that moment the Drag Show started and everyone gathered round to see the show. Green lights flash an announcer introduces a Brandy Alexander and this little queen comes out and just starts rocking it out. I mean really moving, tina turner would be proud. Then came the strip off contest (which takes places every saturday), I know my third time to a club and the second time I had to see people strip, I apparently pick the rowdyest days to go clubbing. I won't really go into too much detail except that the prize was 100 dollars so I entered Brad (my poor Fabio) and in the end had to beat up some guy in front of me claiming he was Brad's boyfriend. Needless to say he almost won, but instead this girl who I suspect may have actually been a stripper won. My favorite line of the night
"Tell yo boyfriend, we're sorry he lost to some strippin' hoe!" -the girls next to me
After that I bought my boy another round and we danced until the sweat was running into my sexy club boots. (provided by my fabulous mother!!) So if you want to have fun and feel fabulous go to ESCALA!

Overall I give it a score of 4 cheers! Parking is great but the cover plus the drinks are pretty pricey, you'd have to win the strip off to break even.

Islanders Do it On Campus

I finally got a hold of an event calender for A&M CC! Joyous occasion I might add.

So check it out, there are quite a few things going down today! So if you find yourself bored and realizing you don't have class tomorrow try some of these out!
Feb. 4
Winter jazz mixer from 6-8 pm at Islander Art Gallery 4024 Weber rd. In the Hamlin Center. There will be hors d'oeuvres (pronounced "or -derbs" ... the French right?! Ha) live music!! And an array of beers to sample (a college kids dreams!) and also a silent auction (always cool stuff and exciting) tickets are 20 bucks, not bad considering all the hook ups and all the proceeds go to student scholarships so you could always win your money back ;).
There is a student vs faculty/staff basketball game 8-9:30 pm. At the Dugan wellness center (huge gym!) tickets are free and it's open to the public. Talk about a great way to see a proff. you may not like get dunked on!

The Magic Man

I also recently came across this article in the Corpus Christi Caller Times (thanks to Marco!) Joe Hillard a local radio host feels the same way I do, and is trying the same thing (sans a blog ofcourse) Check out his list of things to do, sounds exciting if you think you can handle it!

What is there to do in Corpus?

Paging the Modern World

Today I witnessed two Gay guys afraid to show affection toward each other because I was in the lounge. Mind you they had no idea I was paying attention considering I was vigorously working on Biology work and dozing off. After a bit of eaves dropping ( I know shame on me but I had to confirm they were gay, committed and afraid of PDA) I can affirm they were dating each other. So I have to ask why are they afraid to hug or say cute things to each other? Were they truly worried I would think something foul? (never in my life) And if they were worried about this why? Who cares?! I thought those times of "Gay bashing" were over or at least non-existent in Corpus Christi. I understand not wanting to show PDA due to the sheer fact that sometimes it's unnecessary and gross if you are licking your lovers face and tonsils but there is nothing wrong with a tasteful smooch or embracing hug. Instead they awkwardly both stand look around, look at each other and then push each other. You should never be afraid to show who you are, if you hide your differences people will see them as a stigma forever!! To love yourself means "being and saying exactly what you want and never apologizing for it!" -Pink. I tell you all now, eliminate the fear in Corpus and you will eliminate the hate, for the two go hand in hand. If you want to go hand in hand with your boyfriend or girlfriend, your Gay friend or your small friend then dammit do it! The only way to change society's views is to first change your own.

Up to something fishy

I like it raw, I like it hot, spicy, or cold. I like them long, crunchy or so big I cant fit the whole thing in my mouth. But when they are small and plain, they deserve to pay me for putting up with it. Of course I'm talking about eating sushi! Sushi! Sushi! Suuuushi!!
I recently acquired the taste for sushi about 3 years ago, and haven't been able to feed the monster addiction I have for raw fish on rice. So with this constant need for sushi like a vampire to human neck, I have begun the search for the best sushi Corpus has to offer, and this is what I have so far. In order of most delicious
1. Yoshi- they give you complementary miso soup (the legit delicious kind with tofu!) like most great sushi, art takes time. But their rolls are fairly sizable and they are mega generous with their fish portions. Might I even suggest the Corpus Christi roll and the Godzilla roll. Yoshi provides the most wasabi for your wallet, so to speak.
2. Sakura Japanese Steak House- Don't let its size fool you, it may be half the size of its neighboring restaurant La Playa but it deffinately packs twice the flavor. Though usually people stop by for the hibachi cooking, they have quite a large selection of sushi, I tried the sakura special and the Corpus Christi roll and let me tell you there was a party in my mouth, recently acquired sushi lovers best friends Brad and Daniel agree the sushi was delicious.
3. Imperial Cafe- They serve sushi all day, but its at 5 pm when dinner starts that the place gets hoppin'. They have half price sushi on thursdays but they aren't half the fun. Their rolls are a good ten pieces and not skimpy on the fish portions. They also like to use caviar on their rolls which basically tastes like magic beads in your mouth. However if you don't get there right at five the wait is something of a damn shame!
4. Bistro D'Asia- for some time Bistro actually trumped most sushi in my eyes. However they take about 45 minutes to get your sushi and they have a few waiters working there that aren't exactly the most comfortable speaking english, not fun when you have questions.
5. Zen Ultra Sushi Lounge- Wonderful atmosphere, feels almost like being in a big city at some swanky downtown bar. However even their half-price sushi is a bit pricey. Their spirits are top notch and they do have a happy hour, of course you may not be too happy when the check comes.
6. Water Street Oyster Bar- you already know and love it (hopefully!) Great place to eat lunch with the ladies or have a late night romantic dinner. They have half-price sushi Monday through Thursday and although they only have about 8 rolls, each one has a distinct taste. Plus while you are down there you can even take a downtown beach side stroll. Let the lights inspire you, make you feel brand new.
7. Ichibon- OK OK their sushi is pretty weak, I'd say its about a notch above HEB sushi but if you are looking for quantity look no further. For fifteen bucks (I know not exactly wallet friendly) you can have all the seafood you can eat. They even hook it up hibachi style if you want it. Their sushi might be mediocre but their seafood is top notch!
8. Kobe Steak House- As far as sushi goes, pretty much worthless. The service was weak and the sushi chef was the pitts, he actually tried to sway me from ordering more sushi (jerk!) Their rolls have about 5-6 pieces and are way to heavy on the rice and too skimpy on the fish. Not even worth half price, don't waste your time on the sushi is my advice.

I know and hope there are more sushi places out there in Corpus just waiting to be discovered but for now this sushi lover will just have to dream of the perfect roll.

Ocean Avenue

As I was driving to school today I noticed how amazing the beach looks first thing in the morning. Corpus really is a diamond in the rough, I think all we need is more parks. We have maybe 2 that are large enough for anything great, but it seems all awesome cities have centerally located large walking parks. The dogs of corpus Christi could use atleast a dog run. How do I propose this to my city council? Let's work together to make corpus as awesome as it looks from the beach early in the morning!!

Lovely Lunch Spots

Café 517! Owned by the same people as Nuevo Café only better! I ordered the chicken bacon club and it was out of this world. Try the bread pudding for dessert it's the bomb. The place is small and pretty hard to find the entrance, my mom and my aunts all took different ways to get inside. Complete with sweet songs from around the world and an outdoor smoking patio café 517 could just be your new morning hip hangout!

Overall I give café 517 a score of 4 cheers for delicious food and sweet ambiance. But their outside patio needs some help

An Idea Straight Out of Left Field

Looking for more activity? Maybe malls aren't your thing, why not try Corpus Christi's classic batting cages?! The Grand Slams is Corpus' oldest baseball/softball fields. Get some friends, form a team and come out! Grand Slams is nothing flashy, the benches creak and the concrete is almost sand at this point, but if you want some old fashion fun, get your feet on the field!
The batting cages are located way in the back of the complex just past the fields, they are open between 12 p.m and 4 p.m. and it's only about 25 cents per ball, talk about cheap thrills. Never a let down, get your lover into some shorts and invite them on a batting date, we are talking way cute and rarely seen. Then treat them to some 99 cent chilli cheese fries at your local weinerschnitzel and bam! perfect date for under five bucks. You're looking good!

Overall I give Grand Slams a score of 5 cheers! Parking is abundant, everyone working is way laid back, and its financially friendly!! what more do you need? Oh yeah, don't worry they have a snack bar with beer inside :)

The Grand Slams are located all the way down saratoga passed the freeway

Fun For Everyone

I was reading an interesting article in the C.C. Caller Times earlier, (thanks Marco) talking about economic times and how these tough times give people the chance to buckle down not only on their wallets but on their bellies.
This got me thinking about fun ways to get out in Corpus and get in the know. Instantly I think of our up and coming mall La Palmera. The mall is now enlarged and far more luxurious to walk around and see. With aquarium tanks carpet and bright beautiful lights, walking around La Palmera won't only get your blood pumping but also your motivation moving! I notice window displays being bigger and brighter! tell yourself you are working out for those new nikes, that new mini skirt or for one of those darn delicious Great American Cookies!! The food court is now twice its original size with flat screens and long boards as tables. I believe five laps around the mall equals a mile, that means you could get in a few miles and not even mind working up the sweat. They even have a mall walking club the Wave Walkers! Wave Walkers membership is free and includes a welcome kit and membership card providing shopping incentives and discounts from La Palmera merchants such as Trade Secret, Bourbon Street Candy Co. and Nine West. In addition to monthly events, members continue making their daily trek around the mall. To get enrolled simply talk to the concierge. Go get involved, let La Palmera help you lose that extra five pounds for free!

Overall La Palmera gets a total of 4 cheers, only due to the fact that its construction is not complete causing the parking lot and inside to be a bit hectic.

Zen and art of Sushi Making

Sometimes when you go out to eat the restaurant is beautiful but their food is monstrous. Sometimes when you go out to eat, the restaurant is a hole in the wall, but their food is cooked by the Gods. However, sometimes, harmony is formed when the restaurant not only makes your mouth drop, but also makes taste buds sing. Brad and I were close to finding this harmony in Corpus at a semi-new swanky eatery ZEN Sushi Ultralounge.
We had already planned on watching a movie, but earlier that week I heard an advertisement for half-price sushi at ZEN, so we left the house an hour before the movie started in hopes of eating and making the 7:40 showing. (Youth in Revolt by the way was amazingly awesome! definitely a must see)
As we are parking I notice the lot is full! At least this means people are diggin' it. Thankfully Brad has parking skills and finds a pretty V.I.P spot so that we aren't out in the freezing night for too long. Inside ZEN the floor is wide and open, the bar is at my right and the building sort forms a semi-circle around the bar, fully out of windows. Elegant tables with multi-color flickering light faux candles and white leather chairs line the windows. The place is fairly packed but I find a place to sit near the bar at one of these plush tables. The bar is an octagon of stone structure supporting a glass counter top, and inside this counter of glass are stones of white and a few black and underneath them is a blueish light that makes all the rocks sparkle. I picture drinking at the bar would feel more like being in some fancy cabin in Colorado, or after a few drinks maybe the counter turns into some mystical river! Our server comes over from behind the bar, yes she was also the bartender (first mistake of the night). Asks us if we would like anything to drink, Brad and I make a few jokes about their huge top shelf bottles and suddenly have the waitress eating out of our hands, "we"ll start off with a water and sprite however, thanks."
The half-price selection is limited to three rolls... lame. Thankfully it's their most popular rolls, and coincidentally the most pricey. We order all three half-price rolls and some salmon and white tail on the side. (6 bills just for two pieces of fish, highway robbery) The second bartender actually takes our orders disappears and comes back 5 seconds later to say the sushi will take some time, "like 45 minutes?" I question, "Oh no, like 30" he says. Thirty minute wait for sushi is about the norm on a very good day. At this point we settle in and decide to chat up our original waitress/bartender.
Few more jokes, and bam! Brad and I are tasting their many house wines, all fantastic by the way, and settle with two glasses of pinot grigio after being told they are all out of white zinfandel. Now I can fully say I was having fun, our wine is superb, the people sitting at the tables around us, are well dressed socialites and my date is more than entertaining. The feng shui in ZEN can be felt, with lights lining the ceiling with deep purples, bright blues and soft greens, looking up almost feels like seeing the northern lights. Unfortunately an hour later the waiters present the sushi to our now growling bellies. It only takes Brad and I five minutes to devour the small rolls. Though they were rather small and over priced (even at half-price) we still left with wide smiles.

Overall I give ZEN the score of 3 cheers. The atmosphere and the drinks were top notch but if you are looking for sushi, you can mark ZEN off of that list.

Nuevo places, not on your radar

There are places in Corpus you dare not go. They are dirty and scary and are developing slow. But if you seek the places rarely known, you might just realize how much Corpus Christi has grown.
My mom and I decided to check out this hip cafe that we have been hearing so much about, only problem is its not exactly in the best part of town. Like I said though, no good explorer shies away from possibility! We arrived at the Nuevo Cafe at around 12:30 and it was definitely hoppin'. The building inside has a sort of metal storage place feeling. Very Austin Texas. Soft music floods my senses as I look around and realize they have large metal stars hanging from the ceiling and Elvis memorabilia over a lot of the walls. I notice paintings hanging on the back wall all painted by independent artists around Corpus and a yummy dessert counter to my right. Despite the crowd we were seated right away, and our drinks came out equally as quick. We were told the poblano Soup was the bees knees, so needless to say we ordered it along with their most popular sandwich, the nuevo club. We got seated way in the back and it had to have been negative degrees back there because neither I nor my momma wanted to remove our coats! But the soup came out speedy and good thing it was hot hot hot! First taste... spicy prickles roll down my throat. Delicious! But as I continue eating I realize the spice is becoming a bit unbearable and causing me to drink my water like a camel which is leading me to FREEZE!! Then my sandwich came and to my surprise it was the two tiniest little triangle slices of sandwich my eyes have ever beheld. Needless to say I inhale my food using my soup as more of a dipping sauce rather, which works out splendid. Our meal cost about 20 dollars and we were feeling a bit like our wallets, empty!

Overall I give the Nuevo Cafe a score of 3 cheers. What they lack in food size and flavor they make up for in ultra hipness, and places like this might be just what Corpus needs to give the city some life! Make Corpus Weird!! who's with me?

What are you waiting for?!

"Alexis... wake up dude...wake up I need you ..." This is what I hear from the black
nothingness that is my dreams. I finally gain enough conciousness to lift my
heavy eye lids, light floods in and I see my brother Marco, through blurred eyes,
standing at my feet shaking me. "I need a ride to the bus station" he says, shaking me some
more "hurry there isn't much time." I feel heavy, grungy and groggy. What happened last
night? I'm still fully clothed minus my shoes and pants. Hah isn't it odd how drunk
people always lose their pants?
We finally plop into my car and race to the Greyhound Bus Station. The station looks a
little run down, but inside there are arcades along the wall and plenty of places to sit and
wait. Travel by Grey hound seems a bit prehistoric but a good explorer never turns down
the chance for adventure! This station is especially nice because its right down the street from
the ever beautiful two-story WHATABURGER! Now listen even if you aren't a fan of fast food,
or maybe you think you'd rather have it your way at mcburger makers, but Whataburger
on the bay is the ONLY way. Go there at least once! they have a nice outside upstairs eating patio
complete with ocean views and the downtown sounds. And the workers here seem to be rather
chipper. Nothing cures a hangover like Whataburger hashbrowns... yeah I said it.
