This past weekend I went to Austin, Texas with two of my best friends from college. None of us had been to the state, mainly because we’re afraid of Republicans, but what we found has changed my view of cowboys, Lady Bird Lake and obesity.
Here are the things that shaped my new Austin view:
1. Cowboy boots.
2. Street art.
3. My friends, while extraordinarily beautiful, seemed to glow in the Texas light.
4. This crab cake enchilada.
5. Gospel choirs over brunch.
6. This sign.
7. Also, this sign.
8. Wraparound porches.
9. Bar drinking games, like this hook ‘em horns one.
10. Cornbread muffins.
