AUSTIN WEEKEND, PART THREE.

now let's see... where did i leave off?
here's part one and part two of my austin weekend!

on day two, we:

hiked mount bonnell.
shopped on south congress st.
indulged at hopdoddy's burger bar.
attempted to see the bats fly out from the south congress st. bridge.
rode in a pedicab.
ate dinner at banger's.
and bar hopped on rainey street!

just between you and me....
i always feel less guilty for eating burgers and fries and drinking beers when i'm still wearing my workout gear! hehe.

later that evening...

the south congress st. bridge in austin is home to the largest urban bat colony in north america. every night, just after sunset... the bats all fly out to go hunt for the night. we waited from 7:45pm to 9:15pm... and we saw a few bats flying around. but, we were hungry, so we left before the thousands of bats flew out!
next time you are in austin, you must go to rainey street. it's this cute little neighborhood street lined with old bungalow houses that have been turned into unique bars and restaurants! we had so much fun, especially because justine, dave and a few of our other TX friends met us down there! after our dinner at banger's (sausage house and beer garden), we stopped at clive bar and icenhauer's for cocktails!

i wish we could go back right now!!
