currently listening to: atx by alberta cross
it took me a while, but i can now say that i am an alberta cross fan. the new york times describes alberta cross as "a british take on southern rock...alberta cross sets aside those american bands' redemptive undercurrents of blues and gospel; instead it plunges into the very english despair of bands like pink floyd..." i couldn't agree more. their sound is space-like and cool to the touch.
my love of austin, texas knows no bounds.
don't get me wrong - i truly love living in houston, but austin has an eclectic aura about it. the rolling hills hide local treasures and the most known-unknown diner restaurants.
everything is original and the nightlife is boisterous. after hearing some rather unfortunate news last week, i took advantage of a one-night trip to austin with a big group of friends. we visited a watering hole and uncle billy's brew & que which was an experience...
HOLY CAKE BALLS!
in the morning we ate at torchy's tacos and holy cacao! torchy's is one of the more unique eateries in austin. located in a food trailer park, the tacos are sizable, always savory and uniquely named. i got "the democrat" - shredded beef, lime wedges, cilantro, onions, queso fresco, avocado and salsa... it was so good - i forgot to get a photo. eep! holy cacao is my favorite place to get cake balls [or pops] in texas. they are so moist and sinfully decadent.
my friends opted for sandy's burgers for ice cream and 'shakes... which were delicious. we didn't "cone" them though we thought about it...
i'm still catching up on outfits - this one is nothing special. my friends and i hard a wine dinner date to plan our austin trip. the outfit i traveled in should be posted later on this week after i solve my internet issues on wednesday... ugh.
