Fareground

IMG_1834

So there is a new food hall in town, and it is called Fareground. This place is a wonderful concept, except they shouldn’t have invited so many people on a busy weekend night. There are six local food vendors to choose from, drinks and food and snacks to pick out from each joint, along with an open seating area so you can make new friends while hanging out. I chose Ni-Kome so I could try the miso ramen on a chilly and wet Austin night. It was perfect. If you find yourself in downtown Austin and near Second Street and Congress Avenue, then be sure to try this food hall for a nice dinner outing.

Loving Sunset Walks

IMG_3934

It is that time of year in Austin where the evenings start getting cooler and it makes it nice to get out and walk.  This evening, I started at Ninth and Congress and headed for the loop around Town Lake.  There were a few art installations and groovy flowers along the way.  On my return to Congress Avenue, there was a flock of tourists anxiously awaiting the bats to begin flying out from under the bridge.  And of course, the sunset colors on the city were most beautiful.

Cooper’s in the Rain

IMG_3296

My destination was Cooper’s Bar-B-Que, but along the way, I stopped to admire the sights in Downtown Austin.  The Contemporary has an interesting rooftop display of Art.  There was construction going on.  And I made it to Cooper’s just before the heavy rains came down.
