A perfect day in Austin? 72 Degree fall day spending 3 hours mountain biking through the Greenbelt. End the day jumping in the very cold Barton Springs.

For the visitor? In summer, swim Barton Springs. Listen to live music. Eat from the food trailers. Drink local beer.

A perfect meal in Austin? Pork Mole Enchiladas as El Chile with a frozen margarita.

Locals only tip: Don’t go to Gueros for Tex-Mex. Go to El Chile for the real thing.

Your favorite place in the world?  Anywhere that’s 72 degrees and sunny, has mountain biking, and my family around.
