To mark my temporary move to the great state of Texas, I’m finally getting around to posting these pictures from my last jaunt to Austin a couple of months ago. After making a requisite stop at The Salt Lick for lunch, I found my way to the Mexic – Arte Museum to check out a fantastic exhibit on Mexican printmaking and engraving. The museum also happened to be home to this colorful Día de Los Muertos-inspired stencil mural by artist Federico Archuleta, so I stopped to take a few pictures (I mean, what self-respecting blogger could pass up such a ripe-for-the-shooting backdrop?).
Having then spent more than five minutes outside in the Texas heat, I was in need of a drink. The bar at The Driskill kindly obliged. Then it was off to Tyson’s Tacos to meet up with some old SF friends and a certain crispy duck taco (or two). Shoutout to Krista for pointing me in the direction of Room Service Vintage, where after dinner I discovered two pairs of vintage Ferragamo Varas that desperately needed a new home—for under $60!—and ended my evening practically skipping back to San Antonio.
