I’m headed to Austin next weekend and would love any Austin tips, recommendations and Austin-related blog/tumblr links. Also, any tips on how to survive late-August weather in Texas! ;)
Three things you must do:
1. Venture out to The Salt Lick for the best damn bbq in Texas.
2. Head to Maudie’s for Tex Mex.
3. Walk down W 6th Street and stop into a bar with live music. You really can’t go wrong. In college I loved 311, but the talent in Austin is spread all over the place.
Eddie V’s is one of the most popular steakhouses in town, but I wouldn’t say it’s a MUST.
If you get a chance, pick up some Blue Bell Ice Cream (homemade vanilla) for a treat in the heat.
