Due to the need for quality cancer treatment, my husband and I have relocated from the South Padre Island area back to Austin. I love blogging, so I don't know where my interests will lead me. I will leave this blog up because it still gets quite a bit of foot traffic - just realize, I am unable to update anything regarding current status of restaurant reviews. The island is an ever-changing scenario of eateries. The nature of the tourist industry and the high price of commercial real estate makes it a challenge for restaurants to remain viable. Those who do are likely the good ones!
If you seek up-to-date information on restaurants in the area, I encourage you to ask questions on the Facebook page "South Padre Island Concierge" - it is extraordinary helpful and the locals will definitely respond with their opinion.
Wish me luck on my journey and I will post an update if/when I get my mind wrapped around the premise for a new blog in my old (and new again) stomping grounds of Austin, Texas. There are already a plethora of restaurant reviewers - I won't go down that path again - it was a niche that was needed filling when I started this blog in SPI. Not really a need in ATX. I'll be thinking about it as things get settled. I will still monitor comments and answer email questions if I can.
Thanks for all of the support through the years!
