    Top Notch does make a good burger and if you like Dazed & Confused it's a great stop

    Huts is an old school landmark but closing down in October so that’s a solid throwback burger spot

    My hands down favorite burgers in Austin are the sliders (they're full size) at Nickel City. Super cheap. Taste like giant krystal burgers.

    Irush download favor app. Get these tacos delivered first thing in the morning on a day you’re hungover. Allow yourself 1-2 hours for a breakfast nap. Don’t drive all the way down there to sweat by a food truck

    Most of the people in my GF’s circle of friends are still in the party mode into their 40s and even early 50s. Few of them were talking about some satellite burning man stuff IIRC in Leander (or somewhere like that relatively close to Austin). Like ~10000 people from all over TX that do a party week there. Similar to actual burning man as far as what goes on bc it’s the people that go to BM every year that do this. I had no idea Burners were really making that shit a “lifestyle” they do these mini-burn festivals like multiple times a year out there. One coming up in a couple weeks.

    If I didn’t have a GF i would consider it just to see what the fuss is about with something smaller and nearby like that. I’m sure there’s tons of talent coming from colleges in central Texas + major cities.

    Got late night ACl tickets to Gary opening Thursday, Griz the first Sunday and Rebelution weekend 2. Not gonna lie gonna be coming back from a huge wedding in AL weekend 1 and probably will sell those Griz tickets for a lot of money. He got shafted with 6pm Sunday set-time (again) by the festival. So many mediocre as fuck electronic acts on Saturday and Friday he could easily have been put in their slot.

    :idk: I’d be curious to see account totals for Stubbs + ticketfly + C3/ACL + Emos. Probably safe bet I see on average:
    8-10 ACL/3ten
    4-5 Emos
    8-10 Stubbs

    Probably see ~20 free shows between 1st Thursday, Blues, Shady grove Acoustic, etc too.

    - Smoked Brisket and Spicy Pork Ribs
    - Guacapoke
    - Karaage Chicken (order 2)
    - BBQ Tsukemen Ramen

    Austin’s small-plate/shareable Asian food game is pretty damn good.

    Fukumoto is very solid and reasonably priced + never that busy. Can always roll up solo to the sushi bar

    Prior to meeting future mrs TLAU this was a dating staple order at Fuku. Especially if it was a respectable lady and pounding drinks wasn’t on the agenda could get out of there with a great meal and couple glasses of red or sake for < $75

    Their Pastrami is the best in Austin IMO. I routinely just order a half pound of that if I ever go there with a group of friends.
