Mick Makes a Return Trip to Costa del Sol
Costa del Sol is a happening little Salvadoran joint at the northeast corner of Cameron Rd. and 183. I knew that whole Cameron Rd-Sprinkle-Dessau Rd. area like the back of my hand when I was growing up. Now, this funky strip center is a culinary destination.

The Tortilla Strip
Few things in Austin are as revered as tacos. Ann Richards ate tacos; Molly Ivins did too. They inspired one of Willie Nelson’s most poignant love songs. Some even say Elisabet Ney devoured al Pastor before immortalizing Sam Houston. It’s a wonder the streets aren’t paved in tortillas. Austin never seems to get its fill.

Sunflower: Not Sunny Anymore

Too Cool For School
Walking into Schoolhouse Pub, you can't help thinking that you've wandered into a Pinterest board. Raw-edged lace gussies up the windows. Tabletop card holders are DIYed from school supplies. The tickets peek behind mini marbled composition books. Every detail is repinnable, just short of twee. You can take your mom if she happens to be a lush.
