Thinking of a January trip to Austin, and I've got a few questions...

My main question is: do we need to rent a car? We're mostly interested in good food and drink, walking and window shopping, and music on the punk/rockabilly/alt-county spectrum and we're thinking of staying at the Courtyard near the convention center
. (Yes, I'm sure there are more charming places, but we can use our Marriott points and save money for beer!) Is this a good location for remaining car-free?
Food-wise, I'm an omnivore but Mr. Arkham is a pescatarian. Any good BBQ places that might have something he can eat?
Any tips or advice on things to do and/or see appreciated! I'm sort of wondering if there's enough to keep us occupied without a car for a long weekend, since we're not really in the "young hipster" demographic anymore...
