So, I was out of town on Tuesday and Wednesday meeting with Apple Computers at their Austin campus. My company's Apple rep took us out to dinner @ Eddie V's Edgewater Grill. The food was delicious. We had a seafood sampler platter (with calmari, shrimp, lobster tail, and scallops), then I had a Caesar salad and a 12 oz. Filet Mignon (rare). And well they weren't kidding on the "rare" part- it was cool and red in the middle.
I was cooped up in Apple's Austin campus for much of the day on Wednesday so I saw very little of Austin. I saw a small chunk of the UT campus including where my company will be opening a store this summer, and I saw a bit of the city over by Eddie V's and BookPeople.
The Austin airport was kind of nice, it seemed a bit cleaner than O'Hare, but considering it's a fraction of the size of O'Hare it's probably considerably easier to keep clean. The most surreal experience of the trip was listening to the Asian-American guy at Wok & Roll singing along to country music and telling his customers that the "karaoke" was free.
Oh and it was HOT-- according to the locals, even by Austin standards it was quite hot for April. Being a pasty white boy with more than a fair share of Scandinavian blood in me, I'm really not used to that kind of heat, well at least not in April (July and August in Chicago can get just as hot after all).
