Well we leave Austin tomorrow for a short drive west to Stonewall near Fredericksburg, TX. It is a big wine area so we will hang there for a week and check out a few wineries;)
I had hoped to put up a couple more hikes after our return from visiting family over the holidays but that was not meant to be. It has done nothing but rain since our return a few days ago. Oh well, all the more reason to move on!
Friends asked us about BBQ in the Austin area and on the east side, where we are staying, we highly recommend two places that are listed in the top ten list of the Austin Chronicle. We had to agree. Styles Switch and Live Oak. Look them up and check them out when in town, yummy!
Oh yeah, breweries.....Mike suggests the following: ABGB (Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.), Hops & Grain, Pint House Pizza and Uncle Billies Brew and Que for starters. There are soooo many breweries and BBQ places though and it is hard to go wrong.
Aaannnnd music!!!! Go down to 6th St. We went and listened to live country, rock and jazz. Some places have cover charges and a lot don't. It was awesome! Some bands good...some not so good, but what a place!
I did get this pic of a new hawk for me though, a Red Shouldered hawk. Very cool!
