Once we had the icky stuff out of the way, we were able to start on the fun stuff. First stop was lunch at one of the many, many places Hubby has managed to just "stumble upon." I used to think he did it by sheer luck, but now I realize it's a gift that he works very hard at. I've been with him a few times when he spent hours searching for a little hole in the wall that he'd "heard something about" somewhere, only to have it end up being really sucky. I told him that, from now on, I'd rather skip that part of the adventure. Fortunately, this place had already been scouted and tested, and had proven worthy.
Located on S. Lamar, near 290, you'd hardly know it was there, tucked back behind some other little businesses, and you'd certainly never suspect that it had views like these, looking out over the hills and cliffs of southwest Austin.
Views on the inside were almost as good.
|Love these napkins, which look very French for some reason.|
The only thing I couldn't figure out was this:
A trailer you can rent by the hour? Hmmmmm.
Next stop after lunch was to see the movie 42, which I thoroughly enjoyed, even though I'm not a sports fan, and it made me cry several times. Fortunately, the good people in it overshadowed the bad, and what a story!
Well, that's it for Part I. Part II tomorrow!
