WALKABLE. This is a true French bistro in an old house with bartenders who spin vinyl and serve huge Side Cars. They have this funky courtyard with a mirrored funhouse and occasionally host DJs like Omar Souleyman from Syria. Sunday and Monday nights are chill and fabulous, but the weekends are packed with the bridge and tunnel crowd.

Dinner here before going to the Continental Club is loud and raucous but it has great Tex-Mex and is a see and be-seen mainstay. It often has live music under the oak tree outside. Excellent margaritas and breakfast is served all day.

This food truck features amazing fare from Austin's own award winning chef Paul Qui. In the lots of both Liberty Bar and The Grackle, you can get some amazing eats at either location. At Liberty Bar, the truck is in their beer garden out back, so it's a great place to be able to sit down with a beer and enjoy.

Excellent, CHEAP, super-fresh Korean fusion food. This little hole in the wall, just on the other side of I35 on 7th, is a gem for vegetarians or health conscious eaters. We do take-out here a couple times a month. I recommend the Mix Mix Bibimbap with salmon and avocado added.

Parks & Nature
The Austin Hike and Bike trail is the crown jewel of the city. Park here and go for a 1-10 mile run or walk around the lake. The trail is crushed gravel so for biking you need fat tires. There are a few places to rent kayaks or paddle boards also within a mile of Longhorn Dam.

This pool may be THE reason Austin exists, literally. It's a constant 64 degrees and will give you a heart attack when you jump in, but it is a life saver for locals during the sweltering days of summer. I think it's about $6-8 to get in.

This spring fed natural swimming pool is one of the best kept "secrets" in Austin and is drained and refilled daily. Not nearly as crowded as Barton Springs (usually), and a little farther away, it takes a little more determinatin to go there. One side for lap swimmers, one side for little kiddos. $8.
