while i visited texas primarily for the american astronomical society meeting, i enjoyed some other aspects of one of my favorite cities in the world as well...
new year's eve.
i forgot how much they say y'all here, y'all!
an old tradition revived with a new years day swim in barton springs.
can't beat good BBQ (havent put the sauce on yet in this photo...)
live acoustic music soothes my soul. we saw sarah jarosz at gruene hall...
a true small town texas music venue ;)
food trucks and trailers have taken over the city. i think it's a creative and tasty way to support small business and keep austin weird.
did the world really need giant inflatable rasta hats with dreads?
the historic driskell hotel bar.
queso, margarita, and several kinds of salsa!!
happy happy yum yum.
