I Guess I'm No Longer in the "Cool Group"

amysuehere | Jun 13, 2013 05:47 PM

So, my sister (a real global foodie) is coming into town Monday night and she says, "You pick." I freeze.

Here's the story. Sis lived here in the 80's and she LOVES Chuy's. I could do that - we could go to the 183 location - totally Austin. Then there's close - County Line on the Lake ( GREAT outdoor location, totally Austin, but crap food). Next comes SkiShores (see above).

And now comes the sad truth...I've become a "has been" when it comes to great food in this town. I either can't stand the hipsters, crowds or drive. I've been to a few of the new places, but I need help...

She arrives around 7 on Monday. Help me be a foodie again.

P.S. - Looks like Rainey Street is a dud on Mondays, but if y'all think this is something, I'm listening.
