Thursday when we landed at about 1 p.m., we checked in and then hit downtown. All the touristy spots of course. We stopped at The Dizzy Rooster on 6th Street... or dirty 6th as the locals like to call it...where the Real World Austin was filmed.
Then we were hungry. Most places were pretty dead since it was only about 3, so we finally found a place with people and stopped there. It was called Bikini's. I honestly didn't even look at the name, until I went inside and saw the dress code of the waitresses. So yeah. Now I know why it was the only place that was busy. Here is our waitress behind JM.
Then we just trotted around town until about 5:00, went back to the room, got dressed and ready for dinner at Eddie V's. Faaabuloso. Super nice place on East 5th Street... close enough away from dirty 6th. Our waiter was Luigi, you must ask for him if you ever go.
Afterwards we went to South Congress Street to shoppity shop. I was on the hunt for some shades since there were no clouds to be seen and it was inching toward 95. Boo splurged and got me some ray bans, whooo! Lord knows I needed something, I was afraid I was going need Botox after all the squinting I did that day, it was the brightest sun I've seen in a while. The only other clothing purchases we made were at a thrift store. I got a pair of jeans, JM got a shirt and a cool jacket. Yep, we are thrifty.
Do you love the rocks behind? Pretty view.
Not going to lie, everybody wanted my homemade shirt. I had girls asking me where I got it. Letters at Hobby Lobby and and shirt at Target ladies!
The end to a great night.
