While in Texas one must eat BBQ everyday (its a rule, you must eat tex mex for your other two meals). So we headed to Stubbs BBQ for lunch. I had never been to this legendary BBQ and music landmark. And eh I wasn't impressed with the sauce, but it did look like an amazing live music venue and I shall return!
beautiful and HOT Austin
Pulled pork and mashed sweet potatoes

After lunch my friends had to leave so I headed to the Capitol to meet my next friend I would grace with my presence. You guessed it, Gov. Perry. haha no, but my amazing friend Matt. Matt is another grad school friend (are you detecting a pattern here yet?) and works at the capitol passing bills and stuff.
After wandering around the capitol a bit and meeting the big wigs I went the Bob Bullock The Story of Texas museum. They had a special exhibit on arte en la Charreria all about the life of the Mexican Cowboy. Did you know that buckaroo came from the spanish word for cowboy vaquero?
I then headed out on the town to a lovely concert overlooking downtown Austin.
It was a pretty cool venue and the heat broke (a bit) for a perfect evening for dancing under the stars.
