16. Shop for music at Waterloo Records
Remember the good old days of going to your local record store and buying something because the album art looked cool, or getting a recommendation from a cool punk clerk, or picking up xeroxed show flyers? If not, go now. If so, this still exists at Waterloo -- so also go now.
17. Touch everything at Toy Joy
So, the original location is gone, but the second you step inside the new 2nd St store, you’ll be transported back to the Drag. Bins of odd plastic toys, vintage replicas, puppets, Sanrio -- it’s like being a kid, only now you can afford to actually buy something.
18. Go to a Quote-Along at the Alamo Drafthouse
The Action Pack is responsible for kooky quote-along and sing-along movie events that occur all month. These usually include props, contests, and a lot of singing, dancing, and yelling.
19. Go to a secret bar
Garage is a gorgeous cocktail bar tucked in a parking garage, Vinyl is just beyond the hidden door at Tellers, and then there's the mother of all speakeasies: Midnight Cowboy. You’ll need a reservation at this former "massage parlor," and there's a two-drink minimum.
20. Tour a brewery
Or two... or three. Independence, Live Oak, Hops & Grain, Austin Beer Works, St. Elmo Brewing, Jester King...
21. Go to movie night/classic car show at Top Notch Hamburgers
Like you need an excuse to eat some of the best burgers and fried chicken around.
