I'm a California girl returned to my Texas roots. After 12 years in South Austin, it feels like home to me. I'm a software developer whose real love is gardening and design, with a big helping of family and friends on the side.
I adore my hood and I bet you will too. The local coffee shop, Irie Bean, is a watering hole for the nicest folks around here. Stop by and say Hello to the owners, Raf and Jay. Some other favorite walking distance spots are Taco Express and Lick Ice Creams. Stumbling distance bars include the Horseshoe, the Corner Bar, el Meson, and the Black Sheep. And if you want to get your foodie on, visit Olivia, for a very hip, upscale-yet-South-Austin dining experience.
