Roland Frasier Reviews Austin 6th Street and South Congress

Roland Frasier - see the blog posts over at wordpress.

After spending a week in Austin at the Path To Profits workshop I've gained a great appreciation for the lovely city of Austin, Texas. There is such a wonderfully eclectic blend of music, technology, education and, well, funkiness, here that you can't help but find something, and in my case many things, to love about this city! So, I wanted to take a moment to provide the quick Roland Frasier reviews of Austin 6th Street and South Congress...

This trip, I had the chance to cruise down 6th street after a long day of speaking and workshopping and meetings. It was about 10:30 - 11pm and things were just getting started, but the energy was wonderful. There is a huge array of diversely musically focused bars and gathering places, many with rooftop decks to enjoy the crisp Austin air and starry skies as you are serenaded by anything from heavy metal to jazz to country music.

Over on South Congress, you find still more funky from the star studded Hotel San Jose to the aluminum trailer cupcake wagon serving up tasty treats for a hungry crowd of hippies, students, stars, politicians and musicians.

If you have not yet had the pleasure of visiting Austin, then you really must go, and don't forget to watch the bats flying out from under the bridge that spans Town Lake.
