Summertime and the livin's easy!

Summertime is almost upon us and before you commit to taking that island vacation to get your fun in the sun take a look at some of what Austin has to offer. Activities range from scouting out Austins’ best swimming holes to taking up a new hobby exploring Austin’s disc golf courses or picking up your bike or rollerblades and riding the trails! If you’re looking for a more cultural approach to your summer recreational activities look no further than a stroll through the Zilker Botanical Gardens for free or a tour of the ever-elegant AMOA – Laguna Gloria with tours offered every Saturday for under $5! We’ll see you out and about at some of our favorite spots this summer. For a complete list of summer happenings check out: http://www.texasoutside.com/austinguide.htm


Jovitas, how we love thee!!

Great patio. Great music. Great modern mexican food. Great deals. These are all the amazing things you will find at Jovita's on S. First. And all the great things that make up the 78704. Jovitas, sits next to Freddies, and may possibly get ignored like the ugly step sister ... but not so, friends! It is truly the greatest hidden treasure this side of Lady Bird Lake!!

From 4pm-7pm, HH includes $3.99 tostadas (with black beans!! score!), $2 wells, $3 margaritas, $2.50 beer! Jovita is our new best friend. Get there early enough and you will have the whole sweet place to yourself!! A little one on one time makes for a beautiful new beginning!
