Happy Birthday Cherie!
This is a trip we took back back in 2008 too. This time we enjoyed food at the giant Whole Food downtown and Maria Maria (good chips and salsa, stay away from the seafood guacamole) and visited some fun places on West 6th.
This was my 2nd of at least 5 trips I'm taking to Austin this year - that's a record for me. I was there for the Bookfest in October and am going again twice for Maggie's wedding events and another time for a library meeting. Good thing I like Austin. :)
