    Howdy!

    If you're finding this thread from simply browsing TacomaWorld, we're the Austin crowd. You can find us randomly scattered around Austin; harassing taco trucks, spying on other Tacomas, stalking Chad around the mall...typical Austin weirdness. You can also find us at the monthly Cars and Coffee out at the Oasis - every second Sunday of the month, showtime 0700. Check in with the thread to see what breakfast taco supplies you can bring.

    If you are finding this thread because some fanatical weirdo in a blue truck stuck a business card on your window, please browse the entire site to get "the whole TacomaWorld experience" before joining us in your new home. It's kind of like Hotel California, except with a lot more bacon and brisket tacos. And cilantro. Sometimes a squeeze of lime. Let's face it: tacos are important.

    :taco:

    So, who exactly are the Austin crowd? We proudly present the "Not as Weird as Austin" list (in alpha order):

    More radios and antennas than should be allowed by law.
    So let it be written, so let it be done.

    Also, if there's any interest, I've organized a Saturday dinner this coming Saturday. Jan. 23, at 6:30p at Southside Market & BBQ on Hwy 71 in Bastrop for the Heart of Texas Off Road Club. We're not snobby though, and would love for y'all to join us :)

    shoot me a message if you want more details, or if you think you will come by.

    I'll attend food outings as long as it's within the Cedar Park / Pflugerville and up area since I'm in Salado. I don't prefer to have much further of a drive than that and can only tolerate the "city" for so long since I'm a country boy.

    Austin Jeep People have meets there all the time. Met a guy with a supercharged JKU on 44s. Rhino lined and all that. Was a nice Jeep, just felt bad for his wife if you know what I mean :cool:

    Yeah I think their parking lot is way to small, the one near the Expo center in Austin is the same damn way too.

    I would trade Austin for Utah any day of the week. I proposed to the wifey at Snowbird...whatever peak is at 11,000'. Had to get her a little hypoxic so she'd say yes.

    So anyone in Georgetown area during lunch in the meantime want to get food at somewhere greasy like Cane's? That place has fantastic management and food despite the 4 pounds you put on by walking in there.

    Usually Fridays is my lunch out day. End up going somewhere close to that IKEA there at 35 and 1431. Razous got good food, and the waitresses are good to look at too

    Friday could be cool - I can make something every other Friday because of a compressed work schedule. I only have to work 9 hour days so I get every other Friday off. In return I get a 30 minute lunch that I usually spend eating at my desk because #whitecollarjobproblems.

    I spend that time on TW anyway.
