It was only a matter of time. The red hot Rainey Street district has everything you could want or need-except barbecue. Sure Iron Works is right near but let’s face it; the glory days of that old shed are long gone.

Enter East Avenue Lounge.

The friendly, no frills bar has carved itself a nice little niche (http://chowpapi.com/wordpress/wordpress-2.8.6/wordpress/texas-daily-photo-east-avenue-lounge-in-downtown-austin/) and that niche is about to get a lot more prosperous with the addition of smoked meats to go with the cold beer.

We were on non-barbecue business when we snapped this photo but will venture down that way soon and report back.
