Well, there isn’t much justice done to my fellow bloggers if all they get is a three or four word link in the right hand column. So let me tell you why those links show up here at 4Fraziers:
Tom Melesky was an early boss and mentor to me when I was a fledgling manager in the information technology outsourcing business. He also became one of my best friends and quite the entrepreneur in the last few years. A while back he purchased The Press Box Grill, a downtown Dallas sports bar and grill, and with the help of his amazing wife and family turned it around.
He did such a stellar job of reviving the place that he recently bought another restaurant, this one in Grapevine, and made it into a second successful Press Box Grill location.
In the interest of full disclosure, I continue to work for Tom once in awhile when he needs a bit of network cabling or point-of-sale system troubleshooting done, but I’m not being biased at all when I say the Jalapeno Pork Chops and Shiner Bock Chili dog at the Press Box are simply outstanding.
Not to mention the great selection of draft and bottled beers (even great tasting oddities like “Dogfish Head IPA”). The Press Box Grill’s opening in Grapevine, Texas was recently announced in Indulge magazine.

40 Years on Two Wheels
There are lots of us who have a desire to become Peter Egans. When I run across a motorcycle blog writer who can make me chuckle and also provide interesting history as well as current news about two wheelers, I spread the word.
Doug at 40 Years on Two Wheels is one of those guys who probably could rival Mr. Egan if he took up writing full time. His site is a treasure trove of humorous gleanings from his own mind and the web, as well as some outstanding photography.
Danilo Gurovich chronicles his thoughts on motorcycles and occasional funny rants about daily adventures. His blog is an eclectic collection of whatever he feels like spouting off about, and that pretty much makes him a kindred spirit. I try to keep it mainly about motorcycles, and so does he, but sometime we just have to tell everyone what ticks us off or makes us laugh.
It’s a ludicrous world, someone needs to document it.
He shares great rides, including the maps so you can duplicate his experience. He also turns up great tidbits from around the world wide web, as any responsible blogger should.
Dale Franks presents reviews, news, and opinions. Sometimes a minor rant. He doesn’t care much for squids…and neither do I.
In his last post, he let slip that he sometimes drives a Ram 2500 Long Bed. It completely ruined my imaginary picture of him as a long haired biker who owned nothing more than an antique Indian Scout for transportation.
Hey Dale, it’s been too long! Post something new!
By the way, Dale has some great WordPress motorcycle themes he’ll let you download free of charge. I’ve used one of them in the past on this site.
We’re only about a quarter through the list. My next post will cover some more of them.
