Where can you order a California roll while your other half noshes on a burger and beer and all the while your tyke plays on a killer playscape? The Grove at Southpark Meadows, of course! Gone are the days of our angsty youth watching Smashing Pumpkins and the like in the sprawling South Austin outdoor music venue. Southpark Meadows, specifically the Grove, is now replaced with a grownup food court (with mostly local serveries), a jumping water-fountain thingy, and – did we mention? – a playscape. And for those of you who are sentimental, it still possesses a handful of large trees and green grassy hills (sans the crushed plastic beer cups and Doc Martens boot prints).
