114 Reasons Austin is Great

So I’m on Facebook now — which I highly recommend…but that’s a separate post — and saw a new group called "Austin, TX is the shit".

I was compelled to click through. I’m already a member of the Austin, TX group so I’m not sure I’ll join this one, however, in the description for this group they host listed reasons that, in his words, Austin is the shinizzle…

  1. Great list! Here’s an add – Bob Schneider playing or seeing a movie at the Alamo. And full disclosure – I’m Bob’s publicist, but either way he’s great!

    I’d like to add the fact that my wife and I got married there. May not be as interesting to the masses, but it’s the best reason of all for me.
