Coldest place in town

There’s no air-conditioning here at the adobe hacienda, so we go to the movies a lot as a way to put us in cold-storage for a while. Today was no exception, but we made a stop along the way and found ourselves in the chilliest locale experienced outside Dallas.

Pre-movie hunger caused us to make a detour to Chipotle on East Stassney as we headed to the movies. This was a first-time Chipotle experience, and I’ll just say that the location was spotlessly clean, the carnitas were more than fine, portions were generous, all the indoor customers at the time we were there were speaking Spanish, and several people were dining outdoors. Everyone knows that Chipotle is a chain, and not a local one, once partly owned by MickeyD, although no longer. The environment was handsome, the recorded music was interesting, and the food was a fine value.

As for us, we loved the arctic air pouring from the exposed vents. It was novel and quite enjoyable to feel frigid for a while. I wonder whether there’s any place that’s cooler.

    Must be part of the chain handbook. We went to Buca de Beppo in North Austin and were cold enough that we actually enjoyed going back outside into the warmth.

    Then there’s Barton Springs… if you wanna get old skool.

    And then there’s Stacy Pool–spring-fed and FREE the year round.
