House Wine, A New Favorite!

House Wine is new on the Austin scene, having opened four months ago. It's a new favorite with its ubercute house converted into a wine bar ... if you can even call it that! It's so chill, great wine selections, the Austin skyline in the background and P.Terry beckoning in the background. Sitting outside on a great evening, makes you realize what makes life is Austin so good.

The staff is great, its very quaint and they have real cheese lover feast plates. All it's all so reasonable with $5-$12 a glass ... but why not go for the bottle?! Great to meet up with friends and be able to hear conversations, without shouting. And after a few shared bottles, make you're way to P.Terrys for an organic burger before you head home. Perfect end to a perfect evening.

Freddy's Place on S. First

Spring is the best time of year in Austin, and yes, this is Spring. When people start to emerge from their winter cocoon, and converge on all outdoor patios to hit some sun. Freddy's Place is the perfect spot for such days. With a shady grove, you can still enjoy the Texas sun without a meltdown. And on top of that Freddy's has great ongoing specials and activities. Its fun for the whole family - including the pups!! Freddy's is a dog's best friend with a dog trick contest each Sunday (deets below). During Football Season they bust out the big screen for all the big games all weekend long. Who couldn't love this spot?!
