Some friends are coming into Austin tomorrow for a week of festival going.
They're ardent fans of pubs: bars and/or taverns that have a wealth of draft and bottle beer and just as importantly a menu of pub grub that won't break their pocketbooks.
It would also be nice if the establishment was slightly out of the zone of madness.
A respite type place with a patio, good music [Gourds, James Hand, Scott Biram et al] and all the aforementioned.
Since I spend most of my time in beat up old honky tonks or squatted down on some blacktop near a taco cart I figured I should enlist the aid of experts.
