Best Austin Happy Hour – Snack Bar Austin (South Congress)

#Wine y Mexican Coke @snackbaraustin (at Snack Bar) http://www.snackbaraustin.com/ I was in Austin with instagram.com/clairesobella for a work trip and after having meetings on 6th street, we were looking for a spot close by to grab a midafternoon “snack”. I was literally driving down South Congress headed towards “HopDoddy” but drove by this gem. It is literally a restaurant that just serves snacks and drinks basically. Happy hour prices were very reasonable and made for a great mid day snack. Also this location puts you dab smack in the middle of Hipster Heaven, you can walk to the iconic street art...

Christmas in Boca Raton – Mizner Park

What #Xmas looks like in #BocaRaton #Florida (at Mizner Park) After spending a week searching for homes in Palm Beach the misses was flying back out to LA. Since there is no direct flights from PBI to LAX we were forced to drive down to FLL to catch a Virgin direct flight for Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles. This is only a 1 hour drive but somehow seems like a road trip, so I decided to leave early and break the trip up with a lunch in Boca Raton. I’ve heard of Boca mostly from Rick Ross songs and...

Hidden Entry to Juno Beach – No Public Parking

Something cool must be happening @clairesobella After spending the day in Palm Beach Gardens, we were looking forward to seeing the beach for the 1st time on our Florida trip. After opening up Google Maps the closest “named beach” we saw was Juno Beach. So we headed that way and at the end of the maps it put us an ocean front condo building (no public parking). So I parked illegaly in a tow away visitor zone (F#$K the Police) and we headed towards this Mystic (Narnia Like) tree lined walk way. The misses boldly walked through as I...
