We heart Austin, TX!!!! 

This is a super cool city. Granted we have only seen one area of Austin, but what we have seen we love. Our hotel is right in the heart of downtown. Walking distance to pretty much everything you would want to do, shop, grab a bite to eat, go for jog, see a movie or just sit and people watch on the capital lawn or one of the many parks along the river.  6th Street is where the party is at and most of the bars have live music every night. 

Once we got our stuff up into the hotel we decided to go explore. The movie guru in my life wanted to find this place called the Texas Chili Parlor, this is where they filmed the bar scene in the movie Death Proof. They also had some great chili which we enjoyed for a late lunch. After that we walked around the capital building and did a little shopping as we made our way back to 6th street. We walked up 6th street and some of the cross streets along the way looking for some music to enjoy for the evening. We came across Stubb's BBQ which is pretty famous for having great bands play there. Lucky for us they had one playing that night too, Buddy Guy. For being 73 that man can still play. It was a great show, minus the drunken retards that came there just to socialize and the millions of smokers all of which usually decided to stand in front of me. Oh well like I said it was a great show and we had good time. After the show was over we got a slice of pizza from one of those RV kitchen's on the side of the road (it was very good) and made our way back to the hotel.  
   
Yesterday we did a lot more walking, and saw the thing we missed the day before. We wanted to see the park where they have the Austin City Limits Music Fest, we were able to find it but they are refurbishing the lawn so we were unable to see it. We had a nice day exploring the downtown area and just enjoying the awesome weather. We had some lunch at Whole Foods Market and enjoyed people watching at the capital building. After the long day of walking we found a this cool little bar, Little Woodrow's and watched the Yankes/LA game. Not a bad way to end our stay in Austin, good beer and baseball playoffs!

Till the next time, 

Jess & Nic
