“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Look closely and notice that City Hall is shaped like an armadillo, covered in an intentionally rusted patina. Across the street is the larger-than-life bronze monument of Willie Nelson on guitar marking the entrance of Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theatre. The statue was unveiled April 20th, 2012 at 4:20 pm (get it?) by the mayor, who introduced Willie as "the man who more than others made Austin the live music capitol of the world." Foodies converge on La Condesa for award-winning contemporary Mexican, Second Bar + Kitchen for buffalo fried pickles, and Lambert's for high-end BBQ. Cafes fuel shopping expeditions at independent women's boutiques along the street.
