A cold front is blowing through town. I am hunkering down at Starbucks tonight.
Catching a parking lot sunset at Starbucks and drinking iced green tea on a lovely evening in Central Texas.
This is a new experience for me. Trying a Starbucks next to the freeway that doesn’t have inside seating. The downside is that the wireless connection out here is lacking. The good thing is that it is a beautiful night to be out on the patio with my Caramel Frappuccino.
This is a nice, calm, slow afternoon. Drinking Vanilla Bean Frappuccino at Starbucks and learning about the origin of the Starbuck’s Mermaid. I took a few photos and then used the Pixlr App to add some effects to one of them. I just wish this drink had some caffeine, because now I am getting very sleepy.
I am motoring around the Round Rock Outlet Mall today. As usual, I hit up the Starbucks, this time for an iced green tea and some internets. There is more red in the beautiful blooming rose bushes outside then you would imagine possible. On the inside, they are playing music I’ve never heard before and one groovy lyric stuck with me.
The YouTube video of the song “Eye” by Brandi Carlile is linked below if you want to give it a listen.
There is a new hotel that has sprung up on Congress Avenue, between Second and Third Streets. It is the JW Marriott, and they have a cool concept called the Burger Bar. Yep, you just walk right up and get yourself some grub. I think this is their nod to the food trailers that used to be in the area before they decided to plop down a fancy new hotel. I must say the lobby bar on the first floor, and the Starbucks on the second floor were quite nice. I ordered the Bacon Burger tonight and it was awesome. Here is how they make the Burger Bar sound just as yummy as it really is on their website.
So, there is a new Starbucks in town and it happens to sit beneath a tower. I am drinking a hot tea ( Zen ) and doing a little bit of research for a hiking trip. The weather is expected to cool off in Central Texas this weekend, so that makes for a good excuse to get outside. I am looking forward to it, and we will see if things go as planned.
After work, you will probably find me at a coffee shop, eating somewhere or working out. Today, I am at the Starbucks in the Round Rock Outlet Mall. I am testing the ability of the WordPress App to post a photo and a blurb.
I live and work just North of Austin, Texas. You will probably notice that I tend to hang out in Round Rock and Georgetown. I plan to make some lists of places to go, and this spot will make the “Coffee” list. Have a great day!
