Regular price $18.00
Overview

Popular for its hidden swimming holes, penchant for weekend festivals and smoky-good brisket, what sets the Texas capitol apart is an offbeat and inviting disregard for the norm.

“In the nostalgist’s view, Austin used to be cheap, friendly, and populated by gentle, dope-smoking scholars and geniuses. They’ll promise you that if you turned up on any porch in the West Campus area near the University of Texas in the 1970s, you’d be sure of a bed, breakfast, maybe a whole new life and all for free.”

- “Up In the Western Hills” by Laura Furman
