On the road again: Austin, day 1

Another Monday, another city.  This week, work takes me to one of my favorites, Austin.

As usual, the day started too early and ended too late, but along the way it included one first-class upgrade, two late flights, and a delicious small cup of Red Mango vanilla bean frozen yogurt with strawberries and mango.  Yum.

Dinner tonight was my traditional, first-night-in-Austin meal:  the three-meat barbecue combo at The County Line On the Lake.  We started with something new on the menu: deviled eggs with jalapeno bits in the eggs and bits of jalapeno bacon all over them.

As always, click on an image to see a larger version.

Tasty and spicy, these are treats I recommend as long as you like a little kick in your food.

The main course was Texas health food, a platter with beef ribs, moist brisket, and sausage.

Ignore the sides; they're perfectly fine, but after the meat (which I could not finish), you're unlikely to have any room for them.

If, like me, you're going to head to the nearby Amy's Ice Creams for a small cup of frozen deliciousness, you're definitely not going to be able to eat that whole platter.  I tried dark chocolate on the bottom of the cup and maple walnut on the top; both were delicious.

The rest of the evening went to work, of course, but that was a delightful feast, a worthy Austin tradition.
