particularly well in big sports towns, and this is one reason we chose to open during the very popular Texas Relays
weekend in Austin, which draws thousands of fans into the city who are always up for a good time."

Pinky, who has starred in films such as "It'z a Black Thang" and "Miss Phat Booty."
