Jay Clark, everyone's favorite one-man band, retired from his regular Carousel gig last summer, and this Austin mainstay has fallen from the dizzying heights of hipness it represented in previous years. But it remains what it has always been - a secret little hideaway of hip, a clean and ill-lit place that attracts people of all ages, classes, tastes, and persuasions. The carnivalesque atmosphere is aided immeasurably by the fact that the Carousel is set up for set-ups and BYOB.
