    Don't park at City Hall. It takes over an hour to get out of the lot.

    Best music venue in Austin. I come here as much as possible, even though they tend to feature more... um, mature acts.

    If you haven't been to the Moody Theater Wine Down Wednesdays are a great way to check it out. And the best part is that these shows are free and open to the public!

    Drink cheap happy hour beers across the street at Austin Java before you go in to watch a show. Once you're inside they're super pricey!

    Titos Vodka sponsors the bar but drinks are still ridiculously expensive. Get loaded at a nearby dive bar first to avoid $10 drink prices!!

    Don't bring any type of camera here. Metal detectors will find it and you will be booted. Please leave room on your shirt so they can place the yellow star of david on it too

    The drinks here are priced out-landishly. Do yourself a favor, and hit up a nearby happy hour before the show instead.
