signs, signs


I'm still showing pictures from my visit to Austin, Texas last week. The Texas Chili Parlor is located within walking distance of the state capitol building, which we had just finished touring when we stopped here for a late lunch. The food was fabulous and so was the atmosphere. I also bought one of their cool t-shirts. I liked their sign too, so I'm linking up with signs, signs.

I went to Austin three years in a row for an annual conference that was work related. That is such a great city to explore and I had some really fabulous food while there. On one visit, our group toured the capital too. I also loved standing under the Congress Street bridge and watching the bats come out in the evening.

I'm HOT!
... but can't stomach anything 'warm' in the food category. Ya, I know I'm missing out on a lot. Hey, I have to take it easy applying mustard. Sad!

Quite a sign!

I'm like Birdman on this one... I'm not much into spicy food like that, so I avoid chili.

Typically Austin. We lived in Texas for about 14 years all told and spent many happy times in Austin. It's a fun city and I'm sure you had a great trip!

I love Austin! Great choice for a sign pic! Isn't the Capitol building great?

The lighting and shadows look pretty against the sign.

I'm going to Dallas soon, but won't have time for a trip to Austin. Wish I did. The good thing, I'll be able to get a Tex-Mex food fix. :)
