Guided by Abby

We’re on a mission to explore the essential downtown Austin experience in one fell swoop. Friends don’t let friends come to Austin and miss out on these spots. We will start with one of my favorite places for “fancy BBQ” and then we will take a quick visit to a live music institution, grab a quintessential local coffee to fight the meat sweats, and end the night with craft cocktails and live jazz. Grab your boots. This is going to be a fantastic night.

About Your Guide
Hey, Sidewalkers! I'm Abby: a Creative Director here in Austin. I grew up in Boston, but moved here from Chicago. I fell in love with Austin's great weather, creative & talented folks, and the amount of nature dispersed throughout the city. I adore taking road trips around Texas with my boyfriend, Alex; we've been to Marfa, Alpine, Houston, Corpus Christi, and Fredericksburg... but love calling Austin home. My passions include essay writing, contour drawing, light studying, pie baking, and people watching. I hope to do some world traveling in the next few years: Greece, Spain, and Japan are high on my list.
