FUNDAMENTAL BELIEFS.



  1. Be authentic.

    We tend to look at others and feel like we need to do what they're doing. But we're comparing our behind the scenes to everyone else's highlight reel. You can't recreate a fingerprint. Do what YOU love to do and find your own version of dopeness that's authentic to you. People can smell bullshit a mile away. 


    2. Shoot your shot.

    Because you’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.


    3. Give more value than you take.

    I've been to 20+ countries and counting. Everywhere I've been in the world I've created relationships and met amazingly great people. I firmly believe that the energy you put out is what the universe sends you in return. The law of attraction is real. 

    4. Think design in everything.

In my 30+ years of life, I've never met a person who didn't appreciate or like a good, quality designed product. 

5. Always be creating.

Kicks 4 The City     Strategic Partner & Advisor    We are a very shoe-conscious generation. Shoes that are slightly worn, out of style or too small simply get pushed to the back of our closet and eventually thrown away. Those same shoes would feel brand new to those who are in need. This is why Kicks 4 the City was created.

Rules of engagement

1.  Always be creating.

Because the creation of moments, things, accomplishments and experiences it is the only true path to success. 

 

2. Create a standard for yourself and the work you do. 

For me, if it doesn't make sense, look right, feel right or add value to whoever consumes it, I will not do it or participate in it. That goes for a marketing strategy, a business or product I develop. Having this standard has helped me throughout my career. 

 

 

 
 

Our mission is to bring unexpected ideas to life and to teach others how to do the same. 

At Good Fucking Design Advice, we have no idea what we’re doing and, if things go right, we never will. We believe that creativity is valuable precisely because its products are unexpected; and that learning to accept risk—finding success under the threat of failure—is the keystone of creative problem solving. Easy, safe, and expected can rarely be innovative, long-lived, and thought-provoking. 

Informed by our own challenges and triumphs, we create products and experiences that empower others to break rules and take chances that matter. If you share similar passions and believe you’ve got the grit that it takes, then we invite you to boldly join us along the way.

 

No Frills. All Flavor.

“From the sawdust on the ground to the mounted taxidermy on the walls, Hunter is where modern Texans go to relive the turn of the 19th century. Their dishes are simple, hearty, fresh, and all-around delicious.”

Food Magazine

 

Best New Watering Hole

“By focusing purely on food and ambience, Hunter provides the authenticity of the Old West without the costumes and playacting of a themed restaurant. You can bring your cowboy boots if you want, but the humble and relaxed atmosphere asks that you come as you are.”

Hungry Times

 

Rebirth of the Saloon

“Ms. Blackburn has surprised us with her ability to turn pioneer staples into gourmet delights. Her signature cocktails are not merely couched in nostalgia, but are a genuine rebirth of western saloon classics.”

Austin Daily

 

 

Food Fit for Cowboys

"When your eggs are accompanied by the long-lost cowboy fry bread, you know you’re in for a treat. The cocktails are expertly crafted and the meals at Hunter are simple yet decadent. The only thing you’ll regret is not having a nap pod to jump into afterwards."

Flavor Profile Magazine

 

Best Sazerac Outside NOLA

“As a New Orleans native, I’m very particular about my sazeracs. The bartenders at Hunter know how to make the perfect, authentic sazerac. That’s just one example of the meticulous care Ms. Blackburn has put into her saloon/restaurant."

Creole Gourmand

 

Amazing Beer Selection

“Good food and cocktails are one thing, but this place had me sold with its twenty beers on tap. From your regular joes to your craft brew snobs, Hunter has something for everyone and brings the saloon life back to Texas. All they need now is a pianola.”

Chow Cowboy
