I’ve spent some time in Texas – but never outside of Dallas. Last week, I finally made it to Austin for five days. What a town – great people, great attitude, and great food. While I was there for work, I was able to get out and about.
Sunday: 73 degrees and sunny. A little breezy.
I ate BBQ in all shapes and forms during my stay. Sometimes twice a day. Rudy’s had the best beef brisket – extra cool points for a ‘The Worst BBQ in Texas’ neon sign inside the restaurant (that shares a building with a Shell station).
Vintage Toyota Land Cruiser in the parking deck of my hotel. Fully restored. Drooling ensued.
Overall – I’ll give Austin two thumbs up. I’d love to go back during football season with my better half – I can imagine it’s a hoot. I like going places that are friendly – everyone seemed up for giving a smile or a nod. My kind of people.
