Austin cross-section at the table

wall art at South Lamar Maudie'sI’m talking about Maudie’s on South Lamar at lunch today, with people in their work-clothes and people on vacation, people driving expensive vehicles and people arriving on bicycles. The work-clothes were outfits for sitting at a desk and outfits for tough jobs outdoors. The TV was on at the bar; if there was sound, though, it wasn’t drowning out the faint strains of Tejano music and the waves of lively conversation, inspired both by iced tea and by margaritas and more exotic brightly colored mystery beverages in martini glasses. It was breakfast-time and it was lunch-time. Maudie’s still has some items on the menu from the Jorge Arredondo days, though not denoted as such. I couldn’t decide whether to illustrate this with a photo of the hand-painted seasonal embellishments on the windowpanes or select something from the permanent outdoor show. I do love this art, though, placing Maudie’s right there in front of the capitol. Maudie’s has a great view of the current Ray Hennig’s Heart of Texas Music sign and the downtown skyline. I love Maudie’s on Lake Austin Boulevard and I love Maudie’s on South Lamar.
