Southwest Part V - Austin, TX + Hotel San Jose June 19 2013
We rolled into Austin after a 14-hour drive from Big Bend and started out on the right foot with Elizabeth Street Cafe for dinner. The quaint little French/Vietnamese pho house welcomed us to the little funky southern town graciously and we slept soundly at the infamous Hotel San Jose. Even Mason was pleased with his comfy "George" dog bed, bowl, and treats on the house. At Hotel San Jose no detail is spared, everything has been thought of and everything is glorious.
We kicked off our first day with a stroll on Lady Bird Lake, followed by some great vintage hunting, and shopping at Stag Austin and JM Dry goods to say "hi" and get some inspiration if only by osmosis. We scarfed BBQ for lunch...and dinner and in just a day or so, we easily fell in love with the neon signs and funky fashion. Keep on keeping it weird guys.
