Austin Day Trip: The Salt Lick, Wildflowers, Lick

We took our first trip to Austin on Sunday: 1st stop - The Salt Lick for some of Texas' most famous barbeque! It absolutely lived up to the hype. Check out the pit in the middle of the restaurant:
And the wall of fresh pies:
Their brisket was excellent, and especially exciting: I love their barbeque sauce! It's a sweet vinegar/mustard based sauce = my heaven. My fave side: their potato salad - it's also got a vinegar base, German-style.

We walked off our brunch feast at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, a botanical garden dedicated to creating a more sustainable earth through research and education. We missed the bluebonnets by just about a week :'( but it was still lovely:

Finally, we cooled off by fulfilling a Unique Sweets dream off Cooking Channel at Lick - honest ice creams. Some of the best ice cream in our lives! I love crazy fusion flavors & fresh, local ingredients:
