Chaos in Tejas sounds awesome!
Well my fave parts were meeting you guys and having amazing food seriously amazing. Best food outside your company was definitely dinner at Uchi. I would go back and get like 3 of the Bond rolls, aaaamazing. And the hydroponic romaine salad was incred. Aside from food, I really liked just walking around downtown; that's how I like to learn a new city. But I had very little time so I must return. :)

oh, here you are! I posted in the other thread. Austin peeps, should we have a shindig while tofuligans and I are both in town? I've got the 21st through the 23rd free.

Really true. But I'm so glad we have enough choices to be picky about our vegan donuts!

I liked the Whole Foods one! But maybe that's because it was my 2nd vegan donut ever. Ever. In like 5 years.

me too, i almost cried when i saw vegan doughnuts at the austin whole foods (ours doesn't have any, booo), and i thought they were delicious! so, i guess that means we need to come back and try these other ones, just to be sure.

For healthyrunner: It depends a little on your definition of hot. October to April is generally not very hot. I think May, June, and September are usually bearable, but if 90 degrees will make you wilt, I'd stay away those months, too. This June has been hotter than usual. The high this week is around 100 all week long, but we usually don't hit that until July and August.

Bummer, I now have an actual plane ticket and everything scheduled and I have absolutely no free time until after the conference, which runs until the 26th. Anybody up for some post weekend hangout?

I'm back in Austin! Going to be here for about one week, depending on when my ride decides to leave. I stayed at the house of the folks I am told were doing the Toy Joy milkshakes, and that they are in the process of opening their own ice cream shop, and because of the transition there aren't any milkshakes right now. I hope this is not true. The place I'm crashing at now is right next to Toy Joy, so perhaps I shall investigate tomorrow.

Go to Bouldin Creek Cafe. Absolute necessity. Best veggie burger I've ever had. The scramble and chorizo is also amazing. cheap booze too.


Their veggie burger is amazing (especially the ciabatta they use) but while I was there I munched on that tofu chorizo breakfast taco every time... their tofu scramble is like crack... nutritional yeast covered crack... Tell the owner Leslie hi if any of you guys make it over there... she's definitely a bad-ass!!!!

Bicycle Sport Shop on S Lamar. It's a good jumping off point to downtown, South Congress & Barton Springs.
