    Was going to post this later on down the road, but as today is extremely slow and boring for me I decided "Why not now?"

    Behold: Secretcode's Guide To Stuffing Your Goddamn Face at BotCon 2012!

    Location A is located in-house at the Hyatt Regency Dallas.

    All of these locations are a half mile radius maximum away from the hotel/Point A.

    Excellent work!

    Now for homework, plot out all the possible chow stops for the drive to Texas...in one page or less at a minimum of 12 point font, double spaced.

    Thanks and great work!

    Just curious what's the scale on the map? 1" = .25 miles or something like that?

    LOL...google maps will give it to you as well as anything, there's really only one sensible freeway route.

    This is great! Thanks for organizing this list, our stomachs will be very appreciative come April. :thumb  I'm glad you're adding the menus, so we'll have a general idea of the cost of each place. Obviously the fast food joints are cheap, (and the Wolfgang Puck place is $$$$) but it's always nice to know if there's a restaurant or sandwich shop around that's actually affordable. Surely I'm not the only one who has better things to spend money on at a convention than food. :scalper 

    How very appropriate.

    Bit of a question:

    For repeated resturaunts, namely Subway and it's four locations in a goddamn half mile distance, should I just make it one entry with multiple locations?

    Thanks for this!

    I wonder how far I'll have to travel to find one of those places with 8-pound steaks that are free if you finish them in under an hour, like on TV.

    I'm going to add some, but I'm going to keep it limited to this square and the half-mile range. There are no Walmarts or Targets in a decent range.

    I THINK one of these places near the northern part is like that. I'll double check.
