Last time I was in Austins I was imagining the same thing, we asked our airbnb host what was the best place around and he told us Torchys...

You guys do have great asian food though.

I will say as a Californian living in a Austin, Tex-mex fucking blows. But we do have great Asian food and surprisingly good pizza.

Iíve been pretty underwhelmed with the Asian food here. You really have to know the spots. Ethnic food in general isnít fantastic here IMHO. What Asian spots are you all hitting? We hit up Asia cafe which is down the road and best Chinese Iíve had but havenít found a good peking duck spot. Still havenít found a great pho spot. Sushi is definitely way more miss than hit. We found one Thai place thatís ok. Thai fresh is good but not authentic.

I've gotten in so many verbal disputes over how Tex-Mex in Austin actually sucks. What they call tacos, they aversion to burritos, and an excess of flour tortillas and refried beans, it's a mess. There is good stuff there, but you gotta search for it a little. Not the same as the west coast experience.
You know I thought these forums were a for skating not discussing fetishes

Couldnít agree more with ya dude.

One thing that I did learn to love thigh was the abundance of queso, I became a big fan.

On another austin note, skating Lakewood at 0930 and house at 1330 if anyone wants in?

I'm gonna be moving to Austin for a job at UT soon, probably August. What should I know? Aside from "it's going to be hotter than the devil's asscrack."

Looking to rent a place. Seems like Hyde Park, North Loop, and other neighborhoods around there are common places for UT workers to live that have some hip shit to do. Anywhere else I should be looking? East Austin? West Campus? South Lamar?

I'm coming off of 10+ years in NYC (Bushwick/Ridgewood)... are there any places in Austin with a similar vibe?

Thanks Pals, Shalom

Go to Alamo Rec Center off of manor near UT and you'll find a basketball court full of a bunch of boxes and ramps and good skating. House park is the staple skatepark. Full of kids, not my favorite layout. There are spots but a lot are short lived or hard to skate. I can come up with more suggestions once you're settled in.

I don't do hip shit but east austin has all the gentrifying fake cool stuff. West campus if full of students and frat guys. South Lamar is touristy, expensive, but has some good food (I try not to eat out too much but I like this vietamese/french cafe called elizabeth st). Hyde park and North loop are mellow. Handful of dive bars, coffee shops, restaurants that seem cool but I never go to. Honestly you'll probably not find anywhere as cool as NY but I like it. If you're here during summer, barton springs (the free side not the paid side) is a cool place and good for dog/people watching.  Shalom.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

I haven't lived in Austin since the early 00s but you have to go to San Antonio for the real shit. I remember someone told me about a Mexican restaurant on the Drag run by white people that served saltines and salsa. Also a lot of bland black bean spinach type shit on microwaved corn tortillas.
