    No matter who's playing -- though Alejandro Escovedo's traditional Sunday night gig is preferable -- you gotta pay respects to this classic honky tonk heavy-drinkin'/rockin' establishment.

    As Austin as bongs and ping pong, the Continental Club is a haven for bikers, hot mamas, New Age greasers, and tourists alike, hosting local rip-roarers and touring roots-rockers.

    Choosing to shoot pool during a band's set will still keep you within earshot of the sweet music. For a sweet dessert afterward, dip by Amy's Ice Cream for... well, ice cream.

    Johnny Cash lookalikes on stage, 75 year-old Texans straight from a Cohen Brothers movies, and 25 y.o. local girls dressed like it's 1924. Best Texan flavor you can get in Austin!

    If you lack dreads and gauges and all things "weird" then you should leave immediately. You'll get "shushed" and ostracized. Not worth it. Plus the beer selection is hipster and lame.
