So very excited to share this Spotify playlist! It's a compilation of tracks from the 20 AMAZING Austin artists who were just selected as nominees by Black Fret. Black Fret is a new non-profit that's giving away 10 $10,000 grants at the end of this year, so Austin musicians can thrive doing what they do best. Here's the playlist so you can get to know them better!

Taqueria La Playa is a hidden gem. It doesn't get any critical acclaim that I've ever seen, but it is irreplaceable for those who appreciate authentic Mexican food. My husband spent his childhood in Mexico, and searched for YEARS for authentic limonada. He never found it until La Playa. The look on his face when he takes his first sip is priceless. It's like he's a little kid again. For my part, I love the horchata - the best I've found in Austin so far. We've tried the tacos and I enjoy the enchiladas verdes. It's good. The people are friendly. It is what it is and we love it.

Love the HOPE Farmers Market. Strong community feeling, with quality vendors. Each vendor is giving back to the community in some way, which makes you want to support them even more. Coolhaus, Kuna Kicks, Nile Valley tea...just some of the things I love about HOPE.

What a fabulous way to explore Austin, navigate the major festivals, or just have a laid-back day in the best city ever. Nicole and John are excellent, and they're brimming with suggestions if you want to know where to go with your e-bike. The e-bikes are top of the line - you'll definitely want to take one home. Plus, Rocket Electrics plans special group tours that celebrate local music, local food and more. This needs to go on your Austin bucket list. Now.

Kong Screenprinting rocks the house. The team is full of talent (decades worth), their work is solid and creative, and if you're not careful...they may just become your friends. Definitely recommend as your go-to screenprinters. They specialize in fabric printing.

Visited East Side Showroom on a busy weekend night. The wait for a table was extremely long, but we whiled the time away standing at the bar. It was worth the wait. We were right up front when the music started, and the band was excellent. Service definitely skirts on snobby, but the drinks are done up right.

Step out of Austin's east side, into a rural, western location where lumberjacks rule and stuffed game is celebrated...and used for decoration. The Buzz Mill makes their own vanilla syrup. It's amazing, and a vanilla latte will prove my point quickly. The Blue Ox BBQ food truck out back is the perfect complement to The Buzz Mill's coffee/alcohol fare. I recommend the ribs. The brisket is unexceptional, but good. The pork tenderloin is extremely moist on the first bite...and the second bite it's almost too moist (a.k.a. is it cooked right?). But Blue Ox BBQ sauce quickly rights any of these wrongs. $5 Flapjack Breakfast on Sunday. Hump Day Honky Tonk on Wednesday nights. The Buzz Mill is new and getting it's footing. But definitely going places.
