Best Austin Usenet Newsgroup

Unlike so many Usenet groups (and unfortunately, on many Austin Usenet groups), the signal-to-noise ratio on is fairly bearable. You can actually initiate lively discussions and get answers to your serious questions about local cuisine, restaurant openings/closings, and where to find an elusive type of spice at area grocers. Regulars like "Dr. Ruth," "Swertz," "ray," "hope munro smith," "werner," "Ron M.," and the appropriately named "D. Cook" represent a cool cross-section of both foodies and plain ol' hungry folk who keep the pot stirring and food on the table.
