Google Image Search: Word & Picture #186

Today's Word:
"Best of Austin"

Today's Picture:

It is the time of the year when the Austin Chronicle tries to herd cats. Out of the hotchpotch of opinions that makes up greater Austin, the good people at the Chronicle try to ascertain a "Best of Austin" list. Asking for the "Best of Austin" is kinda like saying, "what is your favorite ice cream". It's ice cream... I love it all.

Nonetheless, they try. Good on 'em.

If you are going to vote, you can do it here. Hurry. Voting ends on July 21st.

Also, if you are going to vote, please consider the following people\places as each of them are near & dear to my heart:

Comedian/Comedy Troupe = Master Pancake
(please vote for Master Pancake... I am hoping John takes me for Bar-B-Q again)
Neighborhood/Dive Bar = Cafe Caffeine
Local Author/Poet = Owen Egerton
Movie Theatre = Alamo Drafthouse
