I'm catching a plane to your city tomorrow morning for five days. I'll be staying in a B&B in Hyde Park and I'm looking for recommendations for restaurants and music. I'll be on my own for most of the days and the better part of the evenings Friday through Sunday, but I've never let that slow me down. Any places I shouldn't miss? I'm not looking for tourist traps, but I'd love to drop in on some local joints.
And now for the seriously newbie questions: Is Austin walkable? Is there reliable public transportation or available taxis? Should I rent a car? Any reasonably-priced car services?
'Preciate any advice. Looking forward to getting out there.
