What's there to do in Austin TX?

I’m going for a conference next week Tuesday through Friday. I definitely slept on booking a hotel and literally all the fun/fancy-shmancy hotels are overbooked - so, I’m staying at a LaQuinta, which means, I am looking for dope ass recommendations on things to go do. 

Is there dispensary in Austin? Or do I need to bring my own??

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Get good bbq, Tex mex, hang out on 6th street and listen to live music.

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

DFA conference?

I guess it depends on your scene.  IIRC, you’re in your young 20’s.  Most people that age like to get falling-down drunk at a bar, drinking fizzy yellow beer and listening to covers of “Come as you are”.  If that’s your thing, go to Sixth Street.  

Actually, even if it’s not your thing, go to Sixth Street anyway.  Cross it off the bucket list.  (I tried it once I didn’t like it.  Didn’t inhale.)  

Also, if it’s in season, go see the bats fly out of the cave.  You’ll have to be on the bridge on Congress Ave at sunset.  

Speaking of Congress, you can also tour the Texas Capitol, if that’s your thing.  It’s the biggest Capitol building in the US, aside from the federal Capitol.  

Franklin Barbecue is supposed to be the best in Texas, which makes it the best in the US, which makes it the best in the world.  Sorry Sweep, but it’s true.  (It opened after I moved away, so I’ve never been there.) 

Or you can make the 45 minute drive to Lockhart and eat at the three BBQ restaurants there (Blacks, Kreuz Market, and Smitty’s).  If you do that, I highly recommend building up an appetite.  And take your own BBQ sauce, because some of those places don’t have any.  They refuse to have it in the restaurant.

No, and no.  Unless you want to get arrested.  Weed isn’t legal in Texas.  Not even medicinal mary jane.  

edit - that said, I’ve heard that there’s lots of people smoking it down on 6th street.  As long as you’re not doing anything stupid, it might be okay.  But it is still a Class B misdemeanor.

Franklin bbq waitline is too long. 

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

Get all your sightseeing in Tuesday night. Wednesday and Thursday are reserved for excessive drinking. I’ll open a tab around 11:30am both days.

Thanks Greenman, I appreciate this - I’m definitely going to hit up 6th street.

Why you pretend you’re going to do drugs brah? Just going to stay in the hotel and watch X Files re runs. Oh, Scully, you are so skeptical and sexually repressed. That hair though.

You prefer dating coworkers over IM ? Check if there are any meet ups 

A new city is an excellent way to get fresh tinder matches. Don’t waste fresh blood

OOC - what’s going on in Austin, and why wasn’t I invited?

I liked Austin.  The people didn’t seem quite as willfully naive as the rest of Texas.

6th street was banter.  Good night out.

The Boston winters have finally got to me so i plan on moving and Austin TX is pretty high on the list. Anyone actuallly live there?

When I wasn’t wearing a suit and on booth duty I was ripping around on those scooters. Holy hell, y’all have those things STOCKPILED on every street corner. It was a three day long bar crawl. When I wasn’t being bought a beer, someone else was buying me a beer. Rainey st is where it’s at though! I can’t remember the names of the places we went to.  But literally was the best work trip of my life. 

The only thing I’m pissed about is: I ate NO bbq.
