More Austin Travels

Austin is one of those towns you just can't get enough of. The town is super laid back, but there's always something going on. Bryan and I were in town this past weekend to see British rock band, Wire. Before the show, our friends who moved to Austin recently took us to a '50s-inspired bowling alley called The Highball. All the retro decor from the sputnik lamps to the vinyl cushioned highbacks really struck a chord with me. Plus, the rich colors came off classy and cool rather than cheesy.

The place was far beyond just a bowling alley though. It appeared to be a rockabilly night with live music and dancing and... the food was fabulous. I never would have thought I'd be singing the praise of bowling alley food, but I was pleasantly surprised. I indulged in Dr. Pepper ribs and fries that came with a side of demi-glaze sauce, while our friends enjoyed the quail wings. {Other food items eaten but not pictured: Baller cheese plate, New York Strip (my friend says it's the 2nd best she's ever eaten), and the blackened fish Blue Plate special} It was a good night overall besides feeling sick and light-headed in the middle of the show. Yep, legendary reunion show, and my normally chipper self decides to take a nose dive. Still not sure what hit me, but everything turned out fine in the end. Nothing a little water and sitting at the bar with your hands propped against your head can't fix.

By the way, here are two Austin bands I've been totally diggin' lately:

MoTel Aviv


The Black and White Years


Both amazing bands live.

  4. I am so insanely jealous of you right now! Austin is one of my favorite cities and I miss living there so much. While you're there, make sure that you visit Feathers on South Congress for amazing vintage, Sno Beach for the best snowcones ever, Torchy's Tacos for a Trashy Trailerpark that will change your life, and if you get the chance you need to go see a movie at one of the Alamos (because there is no other movie-watching experience quite like it). I hope you have a ton of fun! xoxo Marissa
