Mature 40 yr old Couple Looking to Drink!

jdubboston | May 22, 2011 01:52 PM

My husband & I are in Austin for the week, halfway through a multi-month cross country drive. We've just decided that we are in need of one of those afternoons where you settle in somewhere for a few hours, drink some great draught beers and wine, nibble some yummy food and catch up on reading The New Yorker all while getting nicely tipsy. And do note, I say 'tipsy' not 'slobbery falling down drunk' :-)

Any suggestions?

Local beers definitely a plus - we're not snobs (PBR cans sometimes are found in our hands) but do like dark beers and complexity. Same goes for wine - reds, mostly, and interesting ones that aren't Cali fruit bombs. As for food, we have one omnivore and one vegetarian. Taking Asian and Mexican out of the mix (not so good w/ wine...) maybe Mediterranean Italian? Or good fresh & local & seasonal American cuisine?

Staying on South Congress near HomeSlice Pizza, and looking for walking distance - although we are NYers and so walking can mean upwards of a mile or two. Thinking that opens it up to Downtown and even the Eastside.

Thanks in advance for your help in our quest!!
