My birthday dinner at Contigo Austin, shot on my iphone.
I highly reccommend this kid friendly (and dog friendly) place! There is a gorgeous park across the street complete with a waterfall and blooming wildflowers. You should make a whole afternoon/evening of it.
We had ox tongue sliders (that were much more delicious than I'd thought they'd be), mussels in a green garlic sauce (amazing), and a cold potato, beet and arugula salad (better than it sounds). We skipped dessert as we had a cake waiting at home but the local strawberry shortcake sounded pretty incredible.
I had a sort of revelation that evening, as we walked among the flowers in the park. I'm actually really sort of starting to love Texas. It feels good.
Thanks for the birthday wishes. Happy weekend, folks.
