Hipster City Travel: Buffalo, New York

136 Comments 25 February 2014

Back in December, the Washington Post published a completely arbitrary list of what was in for 2014 and out for 2013. In addition to ridiculously passé things such as Russia and food stamps, Austin was also considered “out” for 2013. In its place? Buffalo, Mother-f’ing New York. Oh, how I laughed! How could Buffalo, New York, [...]

The Ten Coolest Things That Happened in Austin in 2013

6 Comments 13 December 2013

It’s that time of year again- time where everyone makes butt-loads of year-end lists. Considering I have the pop culture-viewing habits of a 68 year-old prisoner in a low-security prison, I’m completely unqualified to create a “best of” list in the fields of film, music or literature. If left to my own devices, my “Top [...]

Thanksgiving 2013: The Time We Got Lost on Death Mountain a.k.a. Enchanted Rock

5 Comments 04 December 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Our Thanksgiving involved us getting lost in the woods, narrowly escaping an attack from a porcupine and my boyfriend turning 40 and then promptly falling down and breaking his rib. Because that’s what you do when you turn 40. Geoff wanted to celebrate this rite of passage by [...]

Foodie Tour of Austin Restaurants Featured on Reality TV

2 Comments 09 September 2013

It should come as no surprise that Austin has been on a butt-load of reality TV shows. Why is it not a surprise? Because Austin is currently America’s shiny ball that they like to poke, play with and stare at. Many of those aforementioned reality shows are food-based. The culinary scene in Austin has grown [...]

Tubing in East Austin: Where Small Children Find Stabbing Knives

19 Comments 29 July 2013

I live with a toober, a person obsessed with tubing in Texas. Every chance Geoff gets to go tubing, he will take it. Even drifting into a snake ball hasn’t stopped him from floating. He has tubing regalia:  an adorably gay mesh tee, cherished cut-off denim shorts, water shoes, and koozie with a neck string. [...]

Hipster City Travel: Oak Cliff, Dallas, Texas

17 Comments 24 July 2013

At various points in my five years in Austin, I’ve heard several Texans poo-poo Dallas. “Dallas has no character nor soul, but great food!” they say. Or, “Don’t Dallasify my Austin!” they shout as more and more condos sprout up around the ATX. Needless to say, the picture painted to me of Dallas was not [...]

Warning: Spotting a Sea Turtle Can Cause Panic Attacks

1 Comment 23 July 2013

We took a last minute trip to the Redneck Riviera this weekend. I didn’t know the Texas Gulf was called this until a social media friend pointed it out… and after I saw all the monster trucks driving down the beach with drunken and toothless young men yelling “Hey, Girl!” out their window. Say what [...]

Why the Mother-F’ing Train is the Best Form of Travel

10 Comments 12 July 2013

train selfie Last week was not a stellar week in the commercial aviation world. I’m sure you read about the Asiana plane crash in San Francisco where two people died and scores of others injured. It’s a miracle that more people didn’t die, but this scenario and highly grotesque others are what I think about [...]
