Travel and Adventure: Austin and San Antonio Texas

First Night, Eureka Restaurant, Keto Dinner and Garrison Brothers Whiskey - Both Excellent!

The Go To Beer of Texas, Not Bad

OK, so, these houses that your gonna see next are very nice from the street.  But what you don't see is that they are all duplex to sextuplex homes.   This is possible because of a shitty law called Code Next which allows greedy developers to come in and over build the Shit out of Austin.  What's not being overbuilt are the utilities.   I predict that in ten years or less, infrastructure bottle necks are going to cause chaos and hardship in Austin in a big, bad way.   Especially the sewers.


Each one of these properties now has 3 or more houses on them, all attached or on top of each other.  If one person on the property lets their home go hell, they all go down.

I love this house.   The problem is there is another one behind it, on one lot.
This was a single family home.  I could do this.  By the way, the blue Ford Fiesta was my rental.  It drove like shopping cart, but it had a digital compass, and I really liked having one.

No garage but one home.   Needs a place for wheeled toys.
You can kiss your neighbors and their kids goodby in the morning from your kitchen window.
Nice, but two homes.

Loved it, two homes :-(

You get the idea.  Code Next Sucks!

Czech Republic Influence in Texas, and Tasty!

Natural Treasures in Austin Texas.  The biggest Rock, Fossil, and Mineral Shop I have ever seen.

If I had it, I would pay the 100 grand for this.









Turkish Shop.  I have always liked these.

Really cool lighting.  I am looking up at this to take the shot.

These guys used CD's to make outdoor lights more interesting.  This is a must do.


This is a picture of large bird, large bird nests.

This still makes me smile.


Austin Craft Beer, Not Bad at All.



I loved the Doughminican food truck and Melvin, the owner.  Great Empanadas.

Great way to make a water reclamation drain look cool.






Well, not to sketchy.  Now throw in a Steak, and we'll talk.






What I believe are Civil Defense Towers.  But nobody knew for sure.


The Spider House is a Great Place for Drinks and Conversation

You've got to get your food from nearby food trucks though.

Those of you who know me, know that this is where I'm gonna sit.





Ahh

You can't tell from this picture, but my Honey had a really good time talking with the people to my right.  And so did I.


Awesome 24 Hour College Cafe

Silo Art Gallery in Houston


Awesome place in Houston, too crowded for us to go in.




Chicken Shit Bingo.  Everyone should do it once.

 I asked some Austrian guys visiting Austin, who were at Chicken Shit Bingo, if I could try some of their Austrian Camel Tobacco.  Despite the riske~ picture, it was a really pleasant smoke.


Making friends over Beer and Smokes, on a Beautiful Spring Day in JANUARY.  It don't get any better than that, not in Chicago anyway.



Excellent Ramen in Austin

Prohibition Ice Cream, We LOVED this place!




Joanna Gain's little Empire in Texas


This building survived a Force 5 Tornado


I don't drink soda anymore, but I'm still a Pepper at heart.

Remember the ... What was this place again?

 The River Walk in San Antonio is Pure Joy!















If this don't kill you.

This Will!


Could have stayed here a week.


Austin has a Comfortable Airport
