In a Texas State of Mind
For Labor Day, we decided to see the sites of Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capitol of the World.
When we checked into the hotel, we quickly realized that Cabela's was just across the parking lot. So, we spent several hours wandering around inside checking out all of the clothing, camping equipment, fishing gear, and guns as well as the enormous collection of stuffed animals and the impressive aquarium.
Of course, eating was on our itinerary, and we found plenty of good places for it. Including the Salt Lick for BBQ.
And if we are gonna eat Texas BBQ, I gotta have some brisket.
Of course, Tex-Mex was also on our menu and Chuy's was awesome.
We ventured North to Round Rock and took a look at Dell's impressive sprawling campus.
And of course, we loaded up on University of Texas Longhorn gear!
Sunday, we visited Northpoint Church in Cedar Park, TX which is a strategic partner of our church here in Atlanta.
All good things must come to an end, Monday rolled around and it was time to hit the airport and head back to Atlanta. At one of the airport coffee shops, I was reminded this was really Texas, as the coffee shop was selling Shiner Boch and Lonestar.
