Is anybody here from the Austin, San Antonio, or Rockport/Fulton area? My family is going to be spending about 3 weeks in those places at the end of December. We'll mostly be in Fulton, which is where her parents snowbird for the winter, but we'll be hitting up those other places too. It'd be cool to meet people, or if you know of cool places to check out, that'd be good too.

We've also been thinking about moving to Austin, so if you've got good/bad things to say about Austin, here's your chance.

Hey Matte theres a few guys on here from that area I am in Dallas kinda far from there but I know some cool places to go!
Also if you go to the members button on the front page and just type in Tx in the search box all the texas people will pop up
Hey Matte,
Mike, here in San Antonio. After you've been here you'll know why we say "if you cross the state line, you're just campin' out..... you'll be back." Come on down friend.
Actually, I lived in Lindale (Lyndale?), TX (close to Tyler) for about 3 months back in 1995. So maybe it's just Texas calling me back home.
I've been living in north Austin since 08, sadly all the joints I like are south of me, anybody know any good music venues in the N. Austin Round Rock area?
matte i live in lindale now grew up round here, just started into this crazy cbg world u still in the austin area, or anyone else in this area (meaning east texas)????
I'm back home now. Spent a few days in Austin and plan to return this summer and check out what your blistering summers are like. I'm man enough for Minnesota winters, so I think I'm man enough for Austin summers. However, my wife isn't so sure she's man enough for Austin summers.

Well, hopefully "better late than never"...

 

I live in Austin - I LOVE it here. Beer, BBQ, good people, beautiful women, great music, a park you can get lost in smack dab in the middle of the city....what's not to love ?

 

We've got Dale Watson, Redd Volkaert, The Salt Lick, The Continental Club, Chickensh*t Bingo @ Ginnys, mild winters, reasonable cost of living, no state tax, Lone Star Beer, Shiner Bock Beer, The Saxon, Zilker Park, and even a bridge that is home to approximately 500,000 bats !

 

Dang, I love it here.

We spent a couple more days in Austin this summer.  We still think we'd like to move there, but I don't think it's going to happen right away.  I actually know a couple people in Austin now, so I'm not completely in the dark.  Granted, even without someone to show me the ropes, we really liked it!
