Keep Austin Sweaty

Here's a pic of my friend Suzi and colleague David at a bar in Austin called Mean Eyed Cat. It has a Johnny Cash theme. It also, like many Austin bars, has cool outdoor seating. And imported beer for like, not that much.

Here are Suzi & I in front of the sign. You can't see it, but it's still kind of hot.

Here's Middlebrow and I at The Salt Lick. It was amazing. What else can I say.

Our food with the beer we brought from home. The Salt Lick is in a dry part of the county. It's BYOB.

I'm having a good time in Austin, although it's hot. And humid. We saw the bats. We swam at Barton Springs (best time ever!) and we've had nothing but great food since we got here. I love the cheap taco stands. Yeah cheap tacos!! And frozen sangria. Like a wine slurpee. At a taco stand! And cheap beer. Etc!!
But also I miss home. And Son. He's little. He needs me! (Or I need him. Same thing!)

For a minute, I was like, who brings beer from SLC anywhere. But then I read further about the dryness of the county. That's one thing going for SLC--it's not entirely dry. And there are a couple of taco stands...but I want to be with you in Austin where the taco stands thrive and, when not in a dry part of the county, has good beer.

I had no idea there were dry counties in Texas. I thought you were in Utah!! Looks like loads of fun. Great pics too.
