I was 18 or 19 years old when I visited Austin for the very first time. I took a tour of the Capitol building, I visited the DMV (long story), and as a random choice I ate at the Magnolia Cafe. This icon of Austin cuisine is what started my long love affair with this city, and have always been happy to return each time since.

I haven’t been in an actual record store in many, many years. MP3 and iTunes Music Store has all but shut down a majority of these once popular gems of our culture. Waterloo Records, backed by the Austinites that love it, maintains this tradition but also maintains to stay relevant in the digital lifestyle we’ve all grown accustomed to.
Since moving to Austin, the usual Friday tradition is to start off the night with a visit to Water 2 Wine in Round Rock. Not only is the wine varied and amazing, but the staff at that location makes you feel like family.
