On Saturday night we went to the Gazelle Christmas Party. This is our running group, and this year we were in a new, bigger location. There was a great turnout with plenty of good food, but a shortage of wine. Who knew that runners could drink so much?! The party ended early, as most people had other places to go to next. But we headed down the street to one of my favorite dive bars, Deep Eddy Cabaret, with two other couples. Hank had never been before, and I knew he would love its special charm.
Now that you can't smoke inside any restaurant or bar in Austin (it's actually been this way for awhile, which is awesome), it's much easier to tolerate the dark, cozy quarters of Deep Eddy. The ceilings are low, the bathrooms are small, and there are two pool tables and a juke box in the back. Throw in some cheap beer, and you've got yourself the classic dive bar. We snagged a pool table and rotated couples for at least 3 games. A few pitchers in and we ended up having a really fun night with some great friends.
