Hello there! Austin was perfect. Busying ourselves with s's performances and venturing out to see performances by forced entertainment and miguel gutierrez, it was actually a wonderfully relaxing trip.
Here is a list of a few favorite spots.. a list of must see, must eat places:
~ polvos .. a great spot for mexican food.
~ salt lick bbq .. the great salt lick.
~ woodland cafe .. i highly recommend their chocolate banana bread and chocolate cream pie. You can't really leave this place without having some pie. ;) Tyler said their pulled pork sandwich was the best he's ever had, s dived into their grilled salmon fish tacos without room for dessert and i feasted on their signature woodland salad... so good.
~ bouldin creek .. best vegetarian spot in town. I don't know how they do it.
~ jo's for migas, fresh scones, iced coffee, free wifi and a place you'll want to just sit and take in south congress for hours.
~ iron works .. i went for the ribs and i'm a vegetarian. if you don't have time to drive out to the salt lick, this is the next best place to stop for authentic texas bbq.
~ east austin .. best area of austin my opinion. so rich with character.
~ matt's garden .. an old college friend lives on holly st. in east austin and has the most incredible garden and chicken coup.
~ barton springs pool .. i made myself at home here and chatted it up with the locals. I hope the trees are saved!
~ spider house cafe .. relaxing garden patio night spot.
~ jackalope on 6th and trinity for salty lime tecate, catching up with an old friend.
~ trailer park eatery .. awesome tacos.
~ doc's .. fried pickles.. yum!
~ san jose hotel .. so gorgeous.
