Do you guys have any suggestions on where to get lunch? Dinner? Anything interesting out there car related?

I believe EVS is there, no?
Im in BW8 and Beechnut, one street down. Its pretty much all ghetto around here to be honest, we usually hit up Westheimer as well. I work at an Oil & Gas Company too.

There's a really cheap place called Jasmin Cafe on Bellaire which is ok for lunch sometimes, anything at night is pretty much a no no around here lol!

Im down for lunch sometime as well.

the whole Chinatown area is there and there's tons of good eats for cheap - I wish I worked out there! the only thing is that I wouldn't park because we Asian folks aren't so good at that

also, that area is NOT ghetto. the area I work at (Greenspoint/Gunspoint) is

Do we have any coders here in Houston?

I'm interested in programming my alarm, corner delete, power side view mirrors, and windows up.

Check out www.halliburton.com/careers and see if theres anything that tickles your fancy. If you see anything apply for it and give me the Req number. I'll do for you what I do for everyone else and email the recruiter and the hiring manager. I'm by no means high up on the chain but it'll get your name seen by the right people.
I just accepted an offer with a lawyer who might give me something better than entry level in a few weeks, but I'm definitely going to keep this in mind. Appreciate it.

My friend, I'm Asian and I get infuriated when driving through Chinatown. No one can drive, park, or accept credit cards. I'm really down for cheap eats, but can't afford to have some anal terror during work hours. Just gotta be careful and experiment with different places for a while, lol.

BMW Performance SSK

Supreme lowering perches
Interior LED lighting kit
SWS-8 Subs w spacers
AW reflectors

Buying this week:
DD carbon dual diffuser
AW M3 spoiler
JL XD600/6 amp and Technic harness

After that, looking for some decently priced options on N55 intake and direct fit FMIC, and throwing on a 20% tint when it shows up. Probably also some 313s, 225s, or 269s if I can find a decent set for the right price.

There are no words for how much this wait sucks lol
Must see this thing when you're done.

i was also contacted by a dude named sunil patel over at motorwerks houston (5704 sw fwy) and he says they don't have autologic, but they can remove error messages for the tails for 75$.

i don't understand how sandwich shops are so successful. i can make sandwiches at home! paying for sandwiches is for chumps.

i consider myself a pretty brave fellow, but driving down bellaire during lunch/dinner hours will make my butthole pucker. that being said, i'm always there anyway.. can't stay away from cheap chinese
