All our favorite places, most of which are in walking distance of Casa SoCo.

Zilker Park

Fantastic park, down the hill from Casa SoCo. ACL Fest lives here. On non-event weekends, bring a picnic, blanket, bottle of wine and you are golden. Lots of sunny spots and plenty of gorgeous trees for shade. The playground on the side with Barton Springs is super fun for the kids....

South Congress Avenue

Stroll up and down, shop, sip, eat, people watch.

Alamo Drafthouse Austin: Downtown

If we go to a movie, we only go to Alamo. Why would you see a movie and NOT be able to get a beer or glass of wine brought to you?

Chuy's Restaurant

Great Tex-Mex (not Mexican or interior Mexican, etc). This is ooey-gooey goodness. All their stuff is made from scratch. Very good frozen margaritas. Always busy. Inexpensive.

Continental Club

Small, loud, great acoustics. When the right band is there, it's perfect.
