TCEA week is underway in Austin, Texas. The exhibit hall will be bustling. Sessions will be packed. Twitter and #TCEA13 will light up. But there will come a time each day this week when the show floor empties, presentations conclude and some attendees pocket their mobile devices in favor of Cactus Margaritas.
It’s TCEA after hours.
After a full day of learning, sharing and networking, Austin provides visitors with plenty of options for recharging the batteries.
Job number one is sampling some local fare, and let us recommend Stubb’s Bar-B-Q. In addition to preparing some of the best grub around, Stubb’s is a noted live music venue:
In the 1970?s, Stubb’s restaurant became the heart of an explosive music scene. Stubbs was ground zero for musicians like Joe Ely and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Other famous musicians who would “play for their supper” included Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Robert Cray, George Thorogood, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Linda Ronstadt and the Fabulous Thunderbirds.
