Here for my job. What spots should I make sure to hit? What's cool around here?

Also, I 've never been to TX. Should I avoid making my TX impression based on just Austin?

If you drink the LT Kool-Aid, then you may want to drive to Leander.

Without question.

Antones on 5th, especially if Monte Montgomery is playing.

There is a lot of hate for Austin and while it's not the best place to live in Texas, it's really NOT that bad. I just avoid all the liberals and hippies and enjoy living here.

If you get a chance, go South to Cabela's in Buda. It's worth the trip.

Gunstores: McBrides & TexGuns are pretty close to downtown. GDS Enterprise is also worth the trip. Not open Fri-Sun (gunshows).

Heading North and WAY North, Heritage & "The Gun Store".

Eat at a Chuy's and a Maudie's. Drink Mexican Martinis at the first, topshelf on the rocks margaritas at the second.

Gumbo's downtown is my favorite steak/seafood/cajun restaurant.

Austin is unlike almost all the rest of Texas.

I'm headed there myself tomorrow, but won't go to SXSW.

Thanks for the advice everyone! Today was definietly interesting to say the least. I'm disaapointed that I'm only able to visit here, I don't feel like I'm in TX. More like Palm Springs or something.

Downtown has an interesting feel to it and some fun places to visit but there's a reason most normal folks call it the " Moscow on the Colorado".
