Austin: The food post!

Posted Feb 22 2011 5:02pm

There’s been lost of delicious food consumed since arriving in Austin on Friday . I’ve tried to post some of it but the stuff I haven’t I’ll post here.

I posted Friday’s eats here and here as well as Saturday’s here . Sunday’s pre-race eats and post-race re-fuels are here . So I’ll start with our post-race delish in a dish over-consumptions. ;)

After our race we met up with Dan (BC), Dan (ACE), Laura, and Eric for some lunch. The restaurant of Dan’s (ACE) choosing: The Jackalope . We got to sit outside (yea!) but this place was a bit sketchy. There was some suspect movie on the tv behind the bar–I won’t go into detail but there was a lot of nudity involved. And bondage.

Annnywayyyy…we stared with some lovely afternoon adult beverages. I got a cider and it was ok–not as good as the Crispin we have back home. But still refreshing.

Megan and Kasey got frozen margaritas. Looks good! Thumbs up.

I really wanted to try a no-cheese pizza but the dough wasn’t ready yet? Yea, I thought it was weird too. So I went with a plain hamburger on a whole wheat bun with lettuce, ketchup and mustard. And a side of waffle fries. I can’t remember the last time I had a hamburger…I am pretty sure it was after Chicago !

After a delicious and filling lunch we went back to the hotel, sat outside of Starbucks for a bit (to soak up the sun) and then went back into the hotel to crash. And we crashed hard! I think we took a three hour nap–at least. I have never been so tired after a race before!

We continued to be gluttons at dinner–when in Rome, right? ;) We headed back to the Iron Cactus . This was by far my fav restaurant in Austin and you MUST check it out if you are ever in town.

We started with drinks. Margaritas for most (Kasey opted out)–frozen for Megan–regular for me. Once again , let me say, best margarita I’ve EVER had. All natural ingredients–agave nectar and tequila. None of that sugary garbage you find in most margarita mixes. P.S. Have you noticed that Kasey tries to get her engagement ring in every pic? It’s actually totally just a joke–it’s not like Kasey is one of those girls. She just does it to be funny. :)

We also munched on some chips and salsa. Delish. I’m going to miss eating chips and salsa–I’ve had them like EVERY day!

Megan and I both got the Teo’s Tacos–just fajita chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, black beans, and rice and corn tortillas. Sorry for the blurry shot.

No cheese for me.

Kasey got the Acapulco–Menu’s description below.

After getting through security,  I found some lunch and paid the $7.95 for wireless, and got settled. I’m annoyed that there’s no free wireless–I would totally think that Austin would provide free wi-fi for its airport patrons.

Lunch: sub on whole wheat bread with turkey, lettuce, sprouts, and mustard. Plus some baked lays and diet coke.

At least I have work to do! Hopefully I make it home tonight….keep your fingers crossed! Oh, and I just got my seat assignment–aisle seat! Win!
