Regardless if you’re a cocktail drinker or not, everyone will find something at drink.well. Here they specialize in contemporary cocktails and a commitment to kinship. In addition to their cocktails, the drink menu includes an array of beers and an extensive wine list. And we’re told the homemade Twinkies pair fabulously with just about any drink on the menu.
Where is the best place in Austin to get some real Texas barbecue? It’s at Franklin Barbecue. Taking barbecue to the next level, the locals know it as not only being a meal, but an event. Franklin serves food by the pound or by the sandwich, and is famous for their homemade pies. You might have to wait in line, but Franklin’s has gotten some rave reviews and is said to be worth every last bite!
After eating and drinking you might want to get out and do some exploring of the city. Live music is a staple in Austin, and there’s no better way to end the evening than with good music.

Also, don’t be surprised if you stop along the way to listen to live street performers and musicians – they bring the city to life!
