Before you go to that big ranch in the sky, there are first a few obligations you have to fulfill as a resident of Austin, Texas. Narrowing this list down was no easy task, but if you stick to the plan you’ll undoubtedly die a happy man (or lady). Here are 29 Austin things you'd better do before you die, or (worse?) leave Austin.
1. Drinks at the Cloak Room
This is where folks who work in legislation go to drink whisky and canoodle in their work clothes. The bartender is notoriously cranky, so don’t ask for another round until after she’s had a smoke break.
2. Have an Armodelo from La Perla
The beautiful concoction (imagine the coldest Modelo you’ve ever had, now imagine it’s rim filled with fresh lime juice, lime salt, and a dash of Tabasco) sounds like "armadillo." Get one before La Perla is plowed down and replaced with an establishment whose style is less "dive-bar-with-pool-table" and more "bougie-condo-with-a-pool-and-bar."
