Austin Beyond the City Limits

We recently visited Austin, Texas on a nostalgia tour led by my husband, a long-ago resident.  Our son was delighted to see the town made famous by SXSW and my husband, well, he's at that age where revisiting the haunts of his youth is fun.  I had spent time in Austin back in 1986 and it wasn't even worthwhile comparing what I'd seen then with the now -- it was too unrecognizable.

So let's call this a What's New in Austin blog, fresh from a family looking for music and food and some Texas flair.
