To start the new year, here's a great economic forecast from our friend Mark Sprague, The State Director of Information Capital for Independence Title. This excerpt is specific to Austin; click here to read the entire article.
"...Austin is the last major Texas metro that we will address. Austin cannot continue to grow West due to geography, road infrastructure, and environmental concerns. Do we move east, north or south? Recruitment of new business and organic local growth will be the driver of our city’s economy for the foreseeable future.
Google and Apple have not even begun to hit stride in expansion. Other companies that are moving to or expanding in Austin are Dell /EMC, GMC, Hewlett Packard, the University of Texas medical school, and…

Walking is the new Cadillac. Remembering an episode of Mad Men, set in the early 1960's, Don Draper mentions a meeting happening just a few blocks over to a collegue that they should walk to. Both become hysterical with laughter, as if they might actually walk as opposed to drive. Times were different back then. The suburban neighborhoods were booming and buyers actually paid more for a home removed from the hustle of urban life, homes they had to drive to. Everyone saw what kind of car you rolled up in. Now, 50+ years later, things have flipped dramatically.
"This trend is about both the revitalization of center cities and the urbanization of the suburbs." The amount of walking or biking you do, ranks high in social circles. Your environmental…

Located on 6th Street but nestled on the banks of Waller Creek, Easy Tiger is where the East Side and Downtown Austin lifestyles converge. WIth a great selection of international beers, full bar, cured meats and giant pretzels, Easy Tiger is a great place to hang out with friends without all the hustle and bustle. It also doubles as a bakery, so if you are an early riser, stop in for coffee and pastries. And for those who like to be active while drinking, there are two professional-grade ping pong tables along Waller Creek.

If you haven't already checked out Papi Tino's on East 6th, what are you waiting for? Although you know the address, 1306 East 6th, you may still miss it, as it's a tucked away old white house next door to Rio Rita's with no signage (none that I saw at least). If you happen to drive past, this spot is not to be missed.
Although a modest menu in terms of options, Papi's offers only high quality Mexican cuisine. Last night's special, 3 ribeye tacos for $15. They were stuffed full of meat, topped with a super fresh bright green side of avacado and served with salsa. I would highly recommend! The menu ranges from approximately $9-15 for meals, and sides are extra. If you're a fan of the good old fashioned chicken taco, for example, don't be afraid to ask.…

Finally I made my way over to Elizabeth St. Boulangerie. Greeted on a Thursday night with a front row parking spot, I was a little suspicious that business may not be doing so well? Turns out, I was just lucky. Seated at a table right away at just before 7pm, moments later a line was forming at the door. By the time we left just before 8pm there was a 30-45 minute wait. Our TOM'S shoes wearing waitress (did you know the entire staff is required to wear TOM'S?), was very friendly and welcoming. Although Austin is quickly approaching what is sure to be a grueling summer, it was perfectly pleasant on the outdoor patio this night. We started with Ginger Marinated Grilled Tofu Spring Rolls and Wonton Soup, both fantastic and both with a spicy bite. The rolls…
