Destination: Austin, Texas

We put on our boots and headed to Austin, Texas to catch up with some friends this past weekend.

 (this is always the most important part of any trip)

Perla's - yummy crabcake sandwich + hushpuppies + great outdoor patio = fabulous lunch

Steiner Ranch Steakhouse - glass of wine + unbelievable filet + sunset overlooking a lake = heaven.

Salt Lick BBQ - brisket + sausage + turkey + ribs = meat lover's dream

Hopdoddy - gourmet burgers + homemade shakes = gluttony

 (when weren't busy eating, that is)

 Sampled some wine at the wineries around Driftwood. 

Danced at the oldest dance hall in Gruene. 

Shopped at the Gruene General Store and Gruene Antique Company.

Hit the stores on South Congress.  Faves were Allen's Boots, Uncommon Objects (funky antiques), leighelena (jigsaw bracelets), by george (great clothes).
Drinks at the Driskill Hotel.

Listened to live music on 6th street.

And then I came back to reality.  At least the weekend is only a few days away!
