So there's this semi-famous older restaurant called The Oasis in Austin that overlooks Lake Travis. I did not know of this place when my oldest friend mentioned the restaurant but, according to my mother, I've been there quite a few times but was probably in a highchair. Anyhoo, there is an outdoor shopping center that has been built around this popular Mexican and seafood romantic spot (really, really new!) and a brewpub now resides next door.
This brewpub, Uncle Billy's, was the perfect place to celebrate Matt's birthday. Craft beer made in-house, fantastic views, barbeque fusion and a casual environment. And let me just tell you, it TOTALLY EXCEEDED all expectations. (Keep in mind, four native Houstonians who have been exposed to all sorts of restaurants back home, all raving about this place...a good sign. **Fun fact: Houston has more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the world. ***Other fun fact: Not only do we love restaurants, our big tummies show it.)
Sorry for the digression. Anyhoo, let's just get to the views of this fun restaurant: WAIT, let me tease you for a minute. Here's how the wonderful day went:
|LUNCH AT WAHOO'S (FISH TACOS)|
|VEGGIE BURRITO FOR ME|
|A SILLY MAGNIFIER IN A FUNKY ANTIQUE SHOP|
Okay, now some views (from my chair!) from Uncle Billy's:
