Bryan/College Station
« on: February 08, 2011, 03:42:36 PM »
It looks like I'll be starting grad school at TAMU this fall.  Anyone on here in the Bryan/College Station area, or know anything about the area?

It's a good school.  The area can be good, mostly what you make of it.  What kind of info do you need?

I graduated from A&M in 1966 but much has changed since then.  Congrats on your further education

Oh, too easy.

And they wouldn't understand them... ;D
Yes, I'm a physician.  No, I'm not YOUR physician.  Nothing I say here is medical advice.

Do I treat Glocks like I treat my lawn mowers?  No, I treat them worse.  I treat my defensive weapons like my fire extinguishers and smoke detector - annual maintenance and I expect them to work when needed

It's on the edge of the Piney Woods, and it's in Texas.  That's all the rest of you hunyaps need to know.

Well, I graduated from UC Davis (out in Bill's neck of the woods), home of the Cal Aggies, so make of it what you will.

Ever been to Texas?  No?

You're going to enjoy the concept of 'ice houses'.

Actually, like most ethnic jokes, I find that Aggies have the best Aggie jokes.
Note that that's Texas Aggies, not some inferior imitation Aggie from other states.

Just graduated from Texas A&M in 2008. Great school, easy commute to Houston or Austin for some city life if need be. Go to football games, they are a blast, I'd wait for cool weather though.

Northgate is nice for beers.

Well, I actually did bet my BA from one of those other-state Aggie schools (U.C. Davis, the California variety.)

Not sure how I missed that when it was originally posted.

And a better place for beers is Harvey Washbangers.  Now officially with "No Crap on Tap," the last mass market beer tap (Miller Lite, FWIW) having been replaced by an Aggie-owned, CS brewed micro Thursday night.

This is a joke right? Harvey Washbangers? If you are looking for tap beers go to one of the pubs or drive to Houston/Austin for Flying Saucer, harvey washbangers is an overpriced raquet...
