Has anyone ever told you that everything is bigger in Texas?
Let me tell you: They were not lying.
Want proof? Here is Big Lou’s 42″ Pizza from San Antonio– a monstrous cheesy dish that hauls in pizza-lovers after being featured on Man vs. Food. This is my friend Bernie next to it so you can get an idea of how grand this meal was (she is 4’11’)
And the excessively massive character does not end with food…
Bastrop’s gas station Buc-ee’s has 120 gas pumps and a complementing convenience store the size of a super-mart such as Target or Walmart
You can also find all of the Texas stereotyped merchandise at Buc-cee’s
But among all the big things found in Texas, my favorite from yesterday’s adventure would be…
The big selection of beer and nightlife hangouts on Austin’s Rainey Street
First up is Bangers– a rustic saloon with a whole lot of character and a whole lot of beer to match it
Yup. That is their tap selection.
If you like free spontaneous tattoos, you can head over to Platinum Ink and get the Banger’s logo.
“Coffee– We don’t do decaf, so don’t even ask.”
Next on the night-crawl was the Container Bar aka “America’s First Shipping Container Bar”
This was certainly the most aesthetic and innovative bar I’ve been to: two stories, open space, bean bag tossing, and containers you and your party can chill in
Not even going to get started on how delicious their cocktails are..
So, in conclusion…although this lactose-intolerant lady’s stomach was turning from Big Lou’s, it ended its day happily with good ol’ drank. Thanks, Texas.
