During our Marfa trip, we realized one of our favorite swedish pop singers was coming to Texas in February. Leon is one of my favorites and continues to put out the catchiest/realest of pop songs. The tickets were 15$, so you know we decided to go.
Leon played at Antone’s in Austin. After work on Friday we jetsetted over there and made it just in time. We caught some of Jacob Banks, who was stellar by the way. That deep voice got me googly-eyed. Leon came on around 9 and put on the best show. She covered Stevie Nicks and The Arctic Monkeys- the girl slayed.
Saturday we got standard CFA breakfast and headed out to Ingram, TX to see Texas’ own Stone Henge. It’s not a replica (as the plaque says), it’s an interpretation.We photographed the crap out of Stone Henge 2. I did a hand stand for the first time in a long time. After our inspiration zapped out, we took off back towards Austin. Luckily there are lots of cute towns scattered throughout the hill country, and we were able to stop in Fredericksburg for lunch! A quick Pinterest search led us to Airport Diner in an old airport hangar! Even cuter is that there’s a hotel called Hangar Hotel next door! You can stay and watch planes take off right outside your window. Old school little place, but such a cute idea. We attempted to stop at Pedernales Falls State Park once done wandering around planes. Unfortunately there was a medical emergency at the falls. We settled for a photo at the ranger station and got on our way back to ATX, where we ate at Bufalina and had a yummy neopolitan pizza and cheese plate and wine. Thanks, Austin! We’ll be back.
