Austin Sunday

Phew! Finally caught up. So this morning I got up at the crack of dawn. Well, OK, more like 10:30. Rode out to 2222, a road I’d seen mentioned in some forums I found online. Don’t seem to be many riders here, but the road was pretty enough. Did a little loop then headed downtown for much-needed breakfast and coffee. Ate at Starlite and was snubbed by the chick at the door, who forced me to eat at the bar even though the empty tables stayed empty the whole time I was there. Whatever. The food was awesome even though the service sucked. Asked the hippest looking chick working there where the cool shopping was. She sent me to SoCo, aka South Congress St. It was great! Kinda like Castro and Haight combined but much cleaner and less crowded. Bought some stuff from local designers and artists, and really enjoyed walking around there. Met a chick named Angel with a wonderful fairy tale. More about that later, it’s 2:30 AM, about time I hit the sack…
