So I just got back from Austin where my friend Lindsay took me on a mini culinary tour between shows at the Austin City Limits festival...More on that later...But for now, I wanted to profess total love for the Hotel San Jose, one of my favorites on earth (so far). I stayed there a while back, but this time we just went for a bite, drink and good conversation by the pool. Still so lovely.
Hank Williams III once said Hotel San Jose is like Mexico meets Japan.
While there you can borrow an old-fashioned typewriter from the front desk and pretend to be William S. Burroughs.
And even the pencils by the bed are printed with a message:
"Do you know the way?"
Poolside music: Maybe Sparrow by Neko Case.
