Texas is all big hair, shoulder pads and bitchy pool-side cat fights, right? No? What about oil money, the Bush family and crazy cults?
Wide of the mark again? Well, if your perception of the Lone Star State is all (bad) 80s TV references and the less salubrious side of life,
then you should head to Austin. You may still see some big hair and
probably a cat fight or two (it is a university town after all), but Austin is
a great spot to spend a few days particularly if you want to eat well. I
enjoyed a long weekend there in mid September when the weather was just a few
degrees cooler than Hades, so pack your sunscreen and let’s talk where to eat.
