• Eat from a Trailer in a Gas Station Parking Lot: Abo Youssef Mediterranean
    It's been awhile, Aters, and we found a winner to visit. Great reviews, but you decide for yourself.... The bright yellow and red of the Manor Express convenience store may not have the same allure as the tasteful beiges and whites of trendy dining rooms, but that doesn't seem to matter one bit to the folks lining up for Abo Youssef's shawarma and falafel. With an attention to customer care, killer baklava, and a mint lemonade perfect for Austin weather, Abo Youssef proves that our food truck scene is just as essential as ever.

  • Eat, drink, and listen to Bluegrass!
    This is a relaxed brewery, coffee, and food bar located off SoCo in South Austin. They have great indoor and outdoor seating, as well as board games and yard games to play. The music every Thursday night is some of the best Bluegrass music, all free and in a cozy atmosphere! Come for the drinks, the friends, the games, the atmosphere, but especially the music! If the weather is nice, the music will be outside on their spacious patio. If not, the music will be indoors! -=-=-= https://www.facebook.com/events/652212728295736/ -=-=-=
