This past week I went to the TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) conference in Austin with some of my co-workers. We had a great time. After all, I do love technology. In between actually attending the conference we ate a lot.
Dinner at Chuy’s. It’s not as big as of a deal to go here anymore because Chuy’s is expanding it’s locations, but when I was a younger, Chuy’s was strictly an Austin thing. So, it’s always fun to go to the original and have some of that awesome creamy jalapeno dip.
Dessert at Hey Cupcake! This was the only place we went that was a first time for me. Unfortunately, we went at about 8:40 at night (they close at 9) and here’s to hoping my cupcake was only dry to this late hour of arrival. Otherwise, I would say they really need to improve their recipe. It was cheaper than Sprinkles (but with WAY less flavors)–maybe Hey Cupcake! will open a location here and give them a run for their money.
Lunch at Ironworks. Located on Red River, this is another well-known Austin locale. Honestly, I only think the food is so-so but the fries are yummy and it’s a unique atmosphere. Oh and did I mention it was within walking distance to the convention center–that was a big plus.
Dinner at The OASIS. Another typical tourist destination for Austin visitors. If you have never been, I encourage you to check it out. It’s a beautiful restaurant full of art and uniquely gorgeous antiques. Sunset is really the reason to go, but we missed it. However, our food was good and we got some great pictures with the art.
