I have been stuck at home sick on and off for the last two weeks and I finally had the chance to get dressed and go out for the evening!
It's attached to a local theater, the Vortex. I think it sort of serves as the concession stand for the theater. The inside is lovely but it's even better outside...
You can hang out on the patio or in one of the many outdoor chairs...
or in the greenhouse for a little privacy. No heels...they either get caught between the porch planks or dig into the dirt. I speak from experience. But like I said, Austin is very casual and this place is kind of like hanging out at your neighbor's, which also happens to have an excellent Italian food cart conveniently located in the backyard...
(If I hadn't almost gotten my car towed, it would have been a perfectly lovely night...it took a lot of politeness and sweet talk, but I got out of it!)
I love eating outdoors and the sweaty hot nights of Austin...what do you love about where you live?
