Yaffa’s picks from our founder:
FOODIES: sure to stop by many of the delicious food trucks on Rainey Street. Geraldine’s—a fresh, farm to table style for an eclectic mix of tastes. Fixe Austin, perfect for the foodie with a southwest palette.
SHOPPING: 2nd Street District: ModCloth, Olive, & Outdoor Voices are great shops. SoCo: By George SoCo, Uncommon Objects, check it out!
STAY IN SHAPE: Run or power-walk from downtown, past the capital building, through the University of Texas campus. Take a spin class downtown—rock out with Joe! Rent a kayak and find your way down the scenic Colorado river.
PAMPER YOURSELF: Check into the Van Zandt, which includes free happy hour. Who could say no to 5-6 complimentary margaritas, YUM! Hotel San Jose is a private oasis, set back from the SoCo shopping center. Looking for a little art deco? Take a look at the South Congress Hotel!
Jazz—Chill at the Elephant Room. Blues—Antone’s, perfect for hearing key notes. Folk Rock and R&B—make sure to look up concert listings at the Moody Theatre on Willie Nelson Street!
