Guided by Chris


University Park and the Cherrywood neighborhood keep a family-oriented, laid back atmosphere with picnic tables and local produce rather than dive bars and big budget decor. Just across the interstate from the University of Texas, this is the quirky, funky neighborhood where real Austinites live. Join me on a dinner crawl on Manor Road. We'll enjoy a different course at a rustic culinary institution, a Tex-Mex mecca, a secret cocktail bar, and an award-winning cupcake shop. You'll love it so much, you just might want to move here.

About Your Guide

Hi I'm Chris, Co-Founder of The Guild! My family & I recently returned to Austin after a 13 year absence and are thrilled to be back. When I'm not drinking a Topo Chico based cocktail on East 6th, you can find me stroller jogging on Town Lake, swimming with my 2 year old in Barton Springs, sunrise wakesurfing with friends on Lake Austin or willing Longhorns Football back to national prominence at Darrell K. Royal Stadium. Hook 'em!
