    What kind of stuff do you prefer? Here are some of my favorites that we've tried out so far...

    Migas breakfast taco (on flour) at Vera Cruz All Natural

    Kemuri Tatsu-ya for surprisingly some of the best smoked meat in Austin (their other restaurant Ramen Tatsu-ya has great ramen too)

    Cosmic Coffee on South Congress has a pretty sweet flea market on Saturdays and the Leroy and Lewis food truck is usually there.

    Franklin's has an absurd line Friday, Saturday, and especially Sunday. Try to go during the week if you can. Grab some of the fatty brisket and some sides.

    Awesome, these all sound great! I've already been to Waterloo Records many times and loved it, but are there any other record stores I should know about?

    Food:
    Terry Black's BBQ, Leroy and Lewis, La Barbeque are all A+++ Texas BBQ options if you don't feel like waiting for Franklin's
    Uchi/Uchiko (Sushi) - Expensive but their Sake Social happy hour (5-6:30 daily) is a great deal, best sushi in town (
    Suerte - Bougie tacos
    Homeslice Pizza - NY Style
    Via 313 - Detroit Style Pizza
    El Chilito - Great breakfast tacos

    Shows:
    Margin Walker put on the majority of the shows I see here, once a year (January) they offer limited numbers of "fan club" memberships that give you a pair of tickets to any Margin Walker show each month for $150, works out to be like $6 a ticket.

    Comedy Clubs:
    Fallout Theater
    Velveeta Club
    Cap City Comedy

    First time seeing a show indoors at Mohawk last night, always surprised at how low The Dangerous Summer's draw is. Last night was also the first time I've had to move at a show due to the body odor coming off of the women in front of me.

    Yeah, it was funky in there.

    Super impressed by the drummer from Head North that played with Have Mercy.

    I think the lower attendance had more to do with it being a summer Monday than anything else.

    Great show. It’s tough to see AJ still doing some of the same things, but I guess he’s doing a little better.

    Can't believe I didn't meet either of you two, that place had like 75 people in it

    I showed up just as Have Mercy was wrapping up and posted up against the soundbooth for TDS' set. I'll be at American Football later in the month and I'm debating on NFG in July. NFG is one of the few bands I've never seen live, feel like I probably should do that while I can.

    Lol you and I showed up almost at the same time. I might be at NFG too. I also haven't seen them and have a renewed interest since Makes Me Sick came out.
