    If things pan out....Looks like I'll be going to Austin the week of Aug 8.

    Where's the good places to eat and drink??

    I've only passed through Austin......never been there for any length of time.

    Yup NM.....as close to hell as you can get without really being there.

    I have friends in San Antonio and my uncle used to live in Austin. He said it was a great town.

    Rapollo's Pizzeria!

    I honestly have no idea if Rapollo's Pizzeria is any good. I just remember seeing it one night when I was blitzed in Austin.

    Also -- DO NOT walk around downtown Austin pretending you are Australian if you are too drunk to pull off the accent.

    DO draw a curly bad-guy mustache on your finger and hold it under your nose when you want to look shady. The ladies love this.

    OMG my Uncle took me to The Oasis at Lake Travis! That place is amazing they all bang pots and pans when the sun goes down :) I would also suggest Salt Lick BBQ I think its 15-20 mins away in a town called Driftwood... There is always Whataburger near the Capitol or Chick - A - Filet one of my favorites! The best Lemonade I've ever had. Anyways have fun and get pics.
