“The City of the Violet Crown” continues on through the 21st century.

The best way to take a break from the overwhelming drone of cicadas under the oppressive summer sun has always been the darkness and cool air of a movie theater. Austin is awash with different ways to experience cinema: name brand movie houses, independent theaters with limited screens, drive-ins, or a spread out blanket while […]

A theater with the punk sentiment of DYI, Salvage Vanguard brings culture to the East Side.

Show Up with a Frown and Turn that Crap Upside Down at Cheer up Charlies

Brush up on that Norse Mythology at Valhalla

The reason why I love Valhalla is all in the name, apt and prophetic as to the courage needed to cross into the threshold. Located on Red River it is unlike the glamour of surrounding 6th street with its chain bars. Red River businesses follow the trend of real Austin, whatever that is. Wait; let […]

Hillside Farmacy and Seasonal Love

Hillside Farmacy is a delicious restaurant full of contradictions; it is hard not to gush about the restaurant without adding a but to every statement. Located on East 11th it is part of a neighborhood on the fast track to gentrification. It is a beautiful building and easy to recognize, and here comes the first […]

Mohawk is one of the best venues in town. In turn Cheer up Charlies has to compensate and compete as they are nestled at the bottom of the cliff face that makes Mohawk aesthetically appealing.

Plush: A DJ’s Bar with a Dive Vibe

Plush is a DJs bar; a grittier version of Cheers. Like the misunderstood pit-bull, the strong show of strength can be intimidating but Plush will only attack if provoked. Show respect to the bartenders and the patrons and you will find Plush to be a loyal guard dog. It is one of the friendlier bars […]
