The city's unofficial slogan is 'Keep Austin weird' it prides itself on its diversity. It is also the Music Capitol - home to over 1900 groups, anything from Jazz to Country and everything in between. More than 200 venues have live performances every night. www.ironworksbbq.com/about-us.asp do look if you have time. The map pin for this entry is "on the roof"
You may not be aware but Malc has a thing about hats...not many of you will have seen him wear many its true, but he does love buying them! So it was with a little trepidation that I persuaded him to step inside the 'Hat Box' a shop that looked too interesting to pass by.
Again a veritable gem, small but so interesting. They too have a web site this quote from it kind of says it all about Austin...
"Austin is: conservative. Liberal. Old fashioned. Modern. Good ol' boys and hip young things. Rock and Roll. Rockabilly. Honky-tonk. Austin is the Live Music Capitol of the World. Austin is limestone and redbrick. Austin is the neon lights of Sixth Street. Austin is Texas. Austin is more than Texas. Austin is a bustling city. Austin is the rolling hill country. Austin is all things to all people. No matter who you are and no matter what Austin is to you, we've got your hat. We're Austin, we're Hatbox and we've got you covered."
Maybe we like it because it's such a medley - rather like our lives I suppose.
