The other day I was looking for a spot at which to have lunch. I thought about it for a bit and remembered a restaurant that I pass by on the way home from work every evening. So Taylor and I walked a few blocks for lunch at the Rio Grande restaurant on Third and San Jacinto. Great food, really cool atmosphere, and an all-around great restaurant that happens to be the MTV Real World Austin house from the 2005 series. And what’s best is that the bar is made from a storm damaged cedar tree from Cat Spring, which is the town in which I spent my formative and some of my most memorable years. It’s really cool to know there’s a spot near my downtown stomping grounds where I can go and get some good food and a little taste of home at the same time.
