a weekend in authentic austin

austin. the perfect mix of culture, design and food wrapped up in a pretty, sometimes gritty package. i've always heard of the music scene being incredible there, but over the course of 4 days in town, there wasn't time for any. after living in manhattan for nearly a decade, i've missed that heartbeat, that creativity, that quirkiness that only certain places have. austin is one of them. during our time there, we ate more than we should have but spent the long days out wandering and letting our curiosity take over in exploration. i can't wait to go back.

there are almost too many spots to list, but i've compiled some of my favorites here. names & locations are at the bottom of the post.
