Driving back to Arkansas after a trip down South to help the family out after Hurricane Harvey hit was an eye opener! Corpus Christi was suppose to be a direct hit but it turned at the last minute and whacked Rockport/Refurio and went up to Houston. I captured some photos on my phone on the way through Refurio, looked like an apocalyptic event.
Starting to see some damage. Telephone polls down.
This was a famous Sandwich shop, now completely torn down.
This casino type place got some damage.

Combining two food posts in one entry, this was our quick trip back to Corpus before heading back up to Little Rock, we grubbed at Saltwater Grill (probably the best Seafood) restaurant in Corpus, and then the next night hit up Republic of Texas again because they have been on a good streak and pumping out excellent food.
First up, Saltwater Grill…
Saltwater Grill, this is how shrimp should be served, fully cleaned and gutted.
Republic of Texas Grub Sesh, come on a Saturday at 9pm for fireworks as well as dinner!
Since I was in town for the week, we decided to go hit up the Republic again. This time I made a video post which I might start doing on some smaller items so let me know what you think.
This time around Republic was 5 star all the way, and it was all thanks to an excellent waiter and excellent chef. The food was awesome, the service was excellent, the sides were perfect and he made sure to double check everything was (gluten-free) for me. So check it out below!
This time tried a new dish called the Filet Chateaubriand which is cooked at your table and you hear that sizzle pop overlooking the Corpus Christi bay. Don’t forgot the farm fresh vegetables cooked with some amazing tasting potatoes. Most farmy organic experience I’ve had in Corpus yet, down on the farm son.
In Corpus Christi for a week and decided to check out this new spot called “The Post”. Also decided to get a car wash first so my ride could look fresh and feel good, look good you know. The post had some awesome cocktails, and pretty good service.
Well 30 is fucking old it seems these days and what better way to celebrate than a huge bowl of Pho which is Nectar of the Gawds. I also got an Amazon Echo and some cool Disney Vinylmation toys which is sweet, especially when I can control all my Phillips Hue lights with Echo, “Alexa, turn off lamp”, “Alexa turn on bathroom light 30%” it’s fucking sweet and It’s the future if you don’t have this setup your living in the 50’s bro lol. I’ll post more swag later.
