Austin has long been famous for its amazing music scene and seriously good food (the surprisingly good barbecue had me at hello). It’s Austin’s unique creative texture that gives the city it’s alluring charm, and events like SXSW and ACL are just built in bonus points. Austin is brimming with inventive restaurant concepts from adventurous foodies, cool coffee spots, cocktail havens, and beloved food trucks that never compensate their Texas-bred soul. Here are some of my favorite local haunts, brought to you by a bona fide insider. Suffice to say, Austin rocks.
Do you keep a planner? I do. I can’t live without one. I love having an open calendar where I can see all of my events and dates in one place. I use both a date book and a desk calendar. One I can bring with me on the go and the other is placed in a specific spot where I know I can look everyday. I also keep a small notebook and pencil case in my purse for whenever the mood strikes. I jot down daily notes, thoughts, and ideas. And guess what, I don’t use an app– I use good ole fashioned pen and paper.
