Austin, Austin, Drinking Rum and Chocolate (Close Enough, OK?)

I'm starting to think that Austin is the place for me, save the fact that I'll starve (Texans don't cotton to us vegematarian types). They have Buffy singalongs! And they also have The Greatest Place On Earth: The Apparation Miracle Holy Mary Pecan Grove Christian Roller Skate and Roller Blade.

Your reward if you stop?

You get to join in the singing of Christian and/or patriotic songs-really, what's the difference?
This eye candy pressie is courtesy of Helena, who is very sad that she missed out on the Buffy singalong. Also, her family has its own brand. I can't tell if the shiver I had was a little thrill or a little knee-jerk vegematarian huzz. I'll pray to the Miracle Apparation [sic]!

Serious? I must go to this "Austin", as it seems to be more and more the greatest place EVER.

Yeah, Austin itself is chock with good food options; it's the rural areas where you're kind of SOL on vegetarian restaurants. But if man can live by pastry alone, commend me to the Kountry Bakery locations in Schulenberg and Hallettsville, home of the coconut cream pie of extreme meringue wonder and, occasionally, miniature Texas-shaped fruitcakes.
I should clarify that the Pecan Grove world o' wonders is about two hours' drive from Austin, deep in the land of barbecue and kolaches. Road trip!
