The NO NOSTALGIA tour of Austin, Texas

I lived in Austin in the late 80's and the early 90's. Left and never really went back. I have only one friend left in the area (and he, technically, now lives in Round Rock, though he works in the city). We'll be visiting for a wedding and I'd like to know what are the good restaurants (particularly breakfast and vegetarian) and the decent craft cocktail bars that are not hold-overs from the late 80's/early 90's. In other words, "no Kerbey Lane suggestions, please". Bonus points for a good hotel.

What to do in Austin when you're breastfeeding?

There's a conference I'd like to go to in Austin at the beginning of November, but Minipenny is still breast feeding which complicates things. Misterpenny and I talked about making it a short family trip. A couple of days (well, day and a half) on our own and then a day and a half (and at least one evening) of him being on full childcare duties and me at the conference. I used to have the conference travel down, and enjoyed getting to see a bit of a new city, but it's a whole new ballgame now...we've never traveled with the baby, and have never been to Austin, so I'm having trouble knowing how to go about the planning, or if this is even a good idea.

Still trying to visit Austin, having trouble finding an affordable hotel

So our planned January trip got bumped to March. I knew enough to not try to book anything around SXSW, but even 2 weeks after, there is very limited hotel availability and very high prices. [more inside]

My first time moving to a new state. Help me prepare!

I've never really moved before. I went off to college, sure, but that was in the same state, just a few hours from home. This is a different ballgame. I'll be leaving Iowa to live somewhere else for an extended period of time and this will be a first. I could use some help in preparing for this and advice on what to do when I get there.

Hotels for Austin Scouts

Looking for hotels in Austin. My wife and I are coming to Austin on a scouting trip with my parents. All research is telling us Austin would be a great place to raise our kids. Kids won't be with us. We are coming on March 9th - 13th. We realize SWSX starts on the 11th. I am not concerned about staying near all the action. I actually wouldn't mind staying out in the hill country or any location where we can hop in our rental car and get a good feel for the metro area. We don't mind paying $150 - $200 a night. Where can we stay that will be a good launching point for checking out all that the Austin metro has to offer?
