Campus Collection outfits dorm rooms, man caves, and unmarked vans with spirit-boosting gifts and apparel from the University of Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, and other regional colleges. The shop’s walls and shelves overflow with logoed tees, jackets, and jerseys. It also adorns homes in alma mater memorabilia with team trash cans, wall clings, decorative street signs, LED scoreboard clocks, and seasonal items such as logo-emblazoned pumpkins.
In the last 10 years, Picture It On Canvas's founder and CEO Bob McKeon has applied more than three decades of software-sales-management experience to create six Internet-based companies. With Picture It On Canvas now his primary focus, McKeon strives to appease all clients with approachable customer service and a no-questions-asked return policy. Picture It On Canvas takes customer-uploaded photographs and prints them on archival-quality material such as canvas, metal, and hand-chiseled slate, forging a durable keepsake for customers to hang on their walls or dangle from the grills of their automobiles. Buyers can also blend several images into a collage or divide one photograph into four color schemes with a kaleidoscopic piece of pop art.
Pepito's Mexican Restaurante Y Cantina's congenial atmosphere sets the stage for a presentation of classic Mexican cuisine. Shrink a Texas-sized appetite into a Texas-on-a-map-sized appetite with meals such as stir-fry ($9.99) or carne asada ($9.99)—equipped with classic steak flavors. Culinary porters deliver enchilada plates ($8.99)—tortilla trios filled with succulent meats such as chicken topped with red sauce, sour cream sauce, or green tomatillo sauce—alongside rice and beans. Diners can also happen upon live music if they come in at the right time or Shakespearian tragedies if they act out Shakespearian tragedies. The eatery’s tables support the hearty fare with a vibrant blue tile scheme surrounded by wood trim, and a terracotta tile roof shields patrons from the solar system’s largest star on their way through the door.
