We love Austin. We love Top Notch. And. We love Dazed and Confused. We had so much fun going around the city looking for movie filming locations and by far our very favorite is Top Notch. I miss it. Sean misses it. It has the best veggie burger and the soda on tap is like old time soda fountain soda (well our childhood old since we weren’t really around in true soda shop time). But seriously, we went (twice) and had burgers, and yes-we-did…have fries and onion rings and fried okra.. we know we know!! excess fried foods.. we couldn’t help ourselves. Twice was being really, really good because we both could have went everyday. No matter where you go in town, do not, do not, do not! Not go to Top Notch. It is high on the coolest movie location spots and has a couple of props from the movie (soul pole anyone?) and you get good diner style food, it’s a no-brainer. It’ll be a first stop for us when we visit again.

Did you know Austin was live music capital? The city has upwards of 2000 bands and artists and almost 200 music venues, we had fun walking around the Capital building and seeing 6th street (before the nightlife got going).

…do you love airstreams being turned into food carts or would you rather they be left for travels?
our first week in texas and we saw a parade, had some food that’s so good,
but not so good for you, heard live music and checked out local wares…
this was the absolute cutest tent.. love the little teepees & bow & arrows
The city of Georgetown has kept major commercial on the outskirts creating a quaint (old time) feel with lots of historical buildings and houses.. it is a very conservative town and although just down the road from Austin, it doesn’t share any of the diversity or free-spirited nature that Austin has in abundance.
