Okay, so we didn't exactly 'Keep It Weird' (Austin's city motto), but we did have a great visit with dear friends from Houston. Gay & Don picked us up from the airport and, after checking in at the hotel, we walked to dinner at La Condesa.
Our waiter really seemed to know the menu and even convinced us to try sweetbreads. Gay won for best meal of the night.
After dinner, we walked back to the hotel via 6th Street, which wasn't exactly hopping quite yet. I'm afraid we were on the way older/tamer side of things in Austin. But, we did stop for a beer on the rooftop bar at the Iron Cactus.
