Check out the Show Down Saloon, it's on Gualdalupe, around 27th St, next to a Kirbylane Diner. Ask them about "Happy Minutes."
If you are farther north "La La's Little Nugget" is a creepy Christmas themed bar. Justin Ave and Burnett.

You're so close... yet so far away. Austin is the only nice city in Texas. Have fun.

If you're a meat eater, then you *must* get a burger from Casino El Camino while you're in town. I recommend the Buffalo Burger.

A little late, but here's the website for Casino El Camino. I'm partial to the Amarillo Burger myself.

Are you performing another night at sxsw? Unfortunately, I missed you last night at Molotov's. I think I saw juiceboxx was playing again, not that you have any affiliation, but wondered if you might be doing another performance with him this week?
