31 Awesome Austin Finds

From Dance Floor Aquariums to Healing Eco Hospitals

— March 6, 2010 — Art & Design
Checking out all these awesome Austin finds makes the short wait for SXSW even harder. I am seriously about to lose my s-word here. This city is so cool!

They have a club where sharks swim underfoot. I've only seen sharks at aquariums! The art in Music scene in Austin, Texas can't be beat either. I'm going to try and keep it together as I look through the rest of these awesome Austin finds.
