I love to hop on a plane and fly off to some far-flung destination just as much as the next guy (and maybe more), but being able to hop in the car and drive for 10 minutes to photograph this? That's another kind of win in my book. From the blog at http://nomadicpursuits.com/ Eye-popping 3-D mural on 183 near Braker. Bull Creek Park is a great place to hike in Austin. There are trails, a volleyball court, and of course the beautiful creek itself. Mural on 183 near Braker. Eye-popping 3-D mural on 183 near Braker. Nutella and chocolate pretzel milkshake at Hopdoddy. Like the milkshake in Pulp Fiction, it's well worth $5. I spotted this subtle sticker in an unexpected place: at a bank drive-thru. This restaurant is hidden in the corner of a nondescript strip-mall. It serves really good interior Mexican food. These spinach enchiladas were surprisingly fresh and very flavorful. The vegetable egg foo young at Twin Lion is really good. And portions are huge: this only half! Green onion pie at CoCo's. Super good and crazy addictive! One of my favorite, underrated places in Austin #blue Holy molé! The mole enchiladas at Casa Chapala are good. The queso was also excellent--they use fresh high-quality cheese. Butch and Sundance are brothers and royal swans living in the atrium at this hotel. Apparently having swans is popular in Texas. Their habitat seems small but I guess they don't know anything different. Drawing of some Thundercloud Subs employees, by an employee. Subs are cheap and good and the place is funky and fun. People are soooooper nice. Irons! #LifeAtExpedia
Nice rib dinner close to the Homeaway domain office :) Yeah, I may have eaten like $40 of brisket by myself once or twice. Which Wich has a Enchiladas y Mas serves good basic Tex-Mex in a cheerful, family atmosphere. A neighborhood favorite. North Austin gets a Tarka on May 23! This is a fast-food Indian restaurant run by the same people who own the Clay Pit. So good! Austin-flavored Which Wich bags for our troops overseas.
