yes I do wanna be a cowgirl…

I spent the day tromping along South Congress St in Austin, which is an awesome area to spend some time, great food, great vintage, awesome eclectic thrift stores and YES boots… boots and more boots!

but the food… wow and loads of food trucks, outdoor seating everywhere and why not when its still 67F in winter, who the hell cares!

but the BEST BQ place in town… well actually just out of town is The Salt Lick, a humongous football sized restaurant that serves up brisket, ribs, sausages, smoked turkey and an array of sides… this is how we capped the night off.  Mr Weiss being ever the good sport and being vegetarian and all ate the sides and let me get my carnivorous fix.

and that is how they roll in TEXAS!

    When Andrew worked at Magnum they would order ribs from the Salt Lick for special occasions. We went to check it out when we were in Austin but it was closed for a function. Being of the Mr Weiss dietary persuasion I was quite relieved!!

    while you are spending time in TX, you should check out a supermarket called “Central Market”
    it does not disappoint. While you are in the market, you should taste every sample they have out. and don’t neglect the ‘dip bar’ and olive bar they have. I recommend their love dip. it is very good!

        I lived in Dallas for a year. I haven’t been back since I left–about 8 years ago. I miss that supermarket every day!
