    If it's the weekend and the House of Draught is crowded, pick a beer you already know before ordering it at the bar and save time. If you don't care about time, check out their more obscure selections -- CultureMap Austin via Foursquare

    Don't sit inside unless you love sports and the loud roar of a crowd. Sit outside regardless of the weather. Just be patient because that's where they put the new girls. :P -- kim loop via Foursquare

    Not as great at the Houston Children's Museum by any means. It's much smaller with less engaging activities. However, it's cheaper & if you need things to do with a kid it will occupy about an hour. -- Amber Gonzalez via Foursquare

    The pub food at this co-op brewpub is well above what it needs to be to accompany their increasingly tasty beer selection. & no tips allowed; they suggest you buy more beer. [Eater 38 Member] -- Eater via Foursquare

    FANTASTIC Texas history museum with an incredible IMAX theatre, located conveniently walking distance to the UT campus. A little pricey, but a great date-night or Austin staple you HAVE to experience! -- Social News Network via Foursquare
