Imagine having a hip, in-the-know friend in every city you wanted to visit. And imagine that he's excited when you say “hey, I'm going to be in town for a few days; anything I shouldn't miss?” So excited, in fact, that he riffs for 145 entire pages about secret spots, local intel, insider trivia, and hot tips that you'd never have known otherwise. Anyway, that's kind of what a Wildsam Field Guide feels like. The revised-for-2018 Austin edition includes: A Map Of The City's Top Barbecue Joints;
Dive Bars, Past and Present; Our Bests List of Coffee, Hotels and Weekend Plans; Interviews With An Architect, Soul Singer, Naturalist, Chef and More; Illustrated Maps to Summer Swimming Holes, Live Music, Craft Breweries, Film Locations and More; Essays From Award Winning Writers and Journalists; Three Decades of Death Row Final Statements; An Ode to the Late, Great Doug Sahm; Words From Lyndon Johnson About His Hometown; and The Best Places for Queso, Mezcal, Drive-In Burgers, Late Night Steak Frites and More.
