    I'm thinking on going there for a drinking and live music vacation, and meeting a few women would be nice. Any thoughts?

    I would go for the music and beer scene. I'm sure the hipsters would make it a little unbearable, but I have heard good things for the most part.

    There is a highway that goes around Austin where the speed limit is 85. That should tell you something.

    They try way too hard to be hip in Austin, IMO.

    Stay off 6th street and you'll be fine. Plenty of cool stuff to do and it's relatively small.

    Nah. There's all kinds of cool shit around there. 6th street is where the knuckleheads are. There some old places on Congress and 4th that aren't bad.

    I'm old... almost everything I knew there has been "upgraded" or is gone.

    Maybe Don Henley said it best... You can't go back, you can never go back

    Drove from Corpus in March to Austin, traffic was ridiculous, as bad as Houston can get I'd still take it over Austin.

    I know people that have taken almost 8 hours to get from Austin to Fort Worth or Dallas.
