I had to get out of Austin for awhile. The ennui of big city life sometimes becomes altogether too much and I have to retire to the parents farm in rural Appalachia. Took a very relaxing bike ride through Stinking Creek, Turkey Creek, Pineville and Harlan, Kentucky this morning.
Without further ado. Our weekly top 5 Austin, Texas food stories.
