Located in Austin's hippest area, SoCo (South Congress), Perla's is a staple in Austin for great oysters. Also known for their delectable brunch menu, Perla's is a great place to meet up with friends but be sure to make a reservation as this hot spot fills up quickly!

Did you know that Austin averages 300 days of sunshine a year? Autumn Rich and Co. could't find a better way to spend some of those sun-filled days than at Ski Shores Cafe. Located on Lake Austin, you can boat or walk up to the Cafe and enjoy some delicious burgers and beer. There's even a playground for the kiddos but warning...you WILL have boat envy by the end of your meal!

The Courtyard is nestled in between lush greenery at the Hotel San Jose. Hotel San Jose is a fabulous modern boutique hotel but it is best known by locals and tourists as a hot spot to grab some beer, wine and light fare at any given time. Make sure to try the cheese plate and Autumn's favorite, the Champassion (champagne and passion fruit juice).
