|Being awake early (and not hung over) on New Years Day|
meant we beat the brunch rush...
|Brunch of champions:|
deviled eggs, strong coffee, and steel-cut oats with apple chutney at 24 Diner.

We spent quite a lot of time staring at the front door of the South Congress Cafe... (but the food was delicious).

Seriously, if you're in Austin, go to the store. Eat there. Browse the beer cave (yes there is a beer cave). It will not disappoint.

And not for nothing... the bartenders in this town make a mean margarita. Look for "Mexican martinis" on many bar menus (a double margarita served in a cocktail shaker is often the economical purchase if you plan to have more than one).
