I had to visit Austin last week for business, which happens every once in a while since my main client is there. It also gave me a chance to see Kid #1 and his fiance (Kid #1.5?) and Kid #2. It was booked kind of last minute, but I was able to get a room using my Hyatt points and was upgraded to a Sweet Suite at the Hyatt Regency on Lady Bird Lake. This hotel has been recently renovated and I am very pleased with the outcome. The room was beautiful and way more than I needed for the night, but it was a nice little perk due to my status with Hyatt.
For dinner, my son chose Fresca’s on South First, which is a cute Mexican food restaurant in South Austin. We chose to sit outside, where they have a variety of picnic tables under huge oak trees. Patrons bring their dogs, so we got to meet several while we enjoyed our meal. Apparently their Avocado Margarita is amazing – I didn’t have one, but my son and his fiance did and said they were fabulous. I highly recommend Fresca’s and would go back again in a heartbeat!
