Days 78 and 79 – Austin

Austin is such a fun, cool place, it makes me wonder why other cities are so lacking. Despite the oppressive heat, I thoroughly enjoyed my brief visit here. I found some awesome places to eat, like Mueller’s BBQ, easily the best I’ve ever had. Their record stores, like Waterloo and End of an Ear are awesome, easily rivaling and surpassing the bay areas best. Live music is everywhere at night. Food trucks of all sorts can be found in parking lots across the city, many open late, and many rivaling the quality of the best restaurants. The Alamo Drafthouse, a local chain of cinemas, show great movies with good food and a top notch beer selection. On my final night they were showing Super Mario Brothers, easily one of the worst films ever made. They set up a system where the audience could text remarks that were shown in screen, like a crowd sourced mystery science theater. Highly enjoyable, like almost everything I experienced here. I will definitely be back.
