    Hey I'm going to be in Austin this weekend. Never been heard it's a fun city to pick up chicks in so we are going. Any Gators live there who know of a possible Gator bar to watch our game or at least a cool spot to watch where they will be showing it? Also any recommendations on specific restaurants or bars to check out while in the city. Thanks in advance. Go Gators!

    Not sure of the Gator hangout in Austin but Salt Like BBQ is one of the best BBQ places I’ve ever been too. I hung out at the Brew exchange when I was there... pretty neat place the price of your beer fluctuates depending on how many people are ordering that beer. There are so many places to hang out at, wish school was in session when I was there it was the week before SXSW so the city was starting to get pretty wild.

    The Gator Club meets at Third Base Sports Bar in downtown off 6th st.

    Pluckers has a ton of TVs and is one of the best rated wing/sports bars in the country. They have afew locations in North Austin and their main location is downtown off Lamar just west of the campus.

    Salt Lick is one of the best BBQ places hands down but its abit southwest of the city in Dripping Springs (dont goto the Round Rock one, its not as good as the original).

    Kerrby Lane (pancakes) or Juan in a Million (breakfast tacos) or Round Rock Donuts (donuts obiv) are the best Austin breakfast spots.

    Austin's nightlife reptuation is well earned so theres tons of great bars so there will be plently of ladies and some good live music. (Part in the Omni Hotel garage off 5th street.. Last time i went it was 10 bucks and gets ur car off the street).

    If you want to try to scout some talent head to the drag downtown (Guadalupe st). This is the main artery of the campus and the sorority houses are a block or two west.

    Every city is a fun city to pick up chicks in. This has nothing to do with the thread, but my goal has been to get with a girl from every state, so far I got Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Michigan, Ohio, California, Texas, Maryland, Wisconsin, Mississippi, and New Hampshire. I got a neat list I made I keep hidden. It is in no particular order, but yea that's my life in a nutshell.

    As mentioned 3rd base downtown is where the gator club meets. I enjoy the salt lick, but it is not the best BBQ around. There are many to choose from, for fast food BBQ rudy's is good. My favorite restaurant is Uchi/Uchiko

    Lol I'm trying but it's hard to get out west. I know it's weird, but I like to find the cutest girl I can in that state I'm in, and pick her up. I love it, it is like competition to myself. No girlfriends here, that ish is for the birds. I got to use what I have, while I got it.

    It is a good Gator Club. Solid attendance (at least when UF is entertaining). Third Base isn't great imo. Go for the game and then quickly leave.

    I am a bit biased as I used to live in South Austin but I love South Congress. It is a great street that really explains the Austin spirit. It is also a great walk into downtown staring right at the capitol (a few feet taller than DC's btw).

    I also recommend walking along Lady Bird Lake for some exercise. A beautiful trail.

    It's like a new adventure, and it's cool because they know nothing of you or your past. When I lived in auburn, it was like shooting fish in a barrel lol.

    Yup 3rd base on 6th is where you'll wanna go, they have a parking garage there so you'll be able to park for free. Gonna warn you that you won't be picking up any girls in that group. It's an older crowd and about everyone there is married. However you may have some luck walking around the bar. There are about 5 or 6 different alumni groups that meet there. If you go to Pluckers you'll smell like battered food the rest of the day.

    Hey I'm cool with that also, probably not a good fragrance if you're trying to pick up some ladies however.

    Perfect weather so far. The ladies told me last night I must've brought the good weather. I told them I was from the sunshine state after all..
