When I’m on tour, I take the few days I have off very seriously! I like to eat, drink and do as many things as the city we’re visiting has to offer. Last week in Austin, I definitely did just that.
I started my morning at Hillside Farmacy, a quirky restaurant that supports local farmers for their farm-to-table feasts. The space used to be a pharmacy in the 1950s, hence the name. They cleverly use vintage prescription bottles as salt and pepper shakers! The original rich wood cabinets, artsy murals, tile work and crystal doorknobs create an authentically-worn-in warmth. My fried egg sandwich (avocado, aioli, sprouts, fried green tomato) was off-the-charts delicious!
And we’re off! The MOVE Live On Tour is officially en route and heading to some great cities this week! Phoenix, Albuquerque, Midland and Austin — we’re coming for you!
I love being on tour because it means I get to sample something special from every city. I won’t have a ton of time in between shows, so I’m hoping you all could steer me in the right direction as far as where to grub, shop and see while I’m passing through!
There are so many historical and cultural hot spots surrounding Albuquerque; I have no idea where to start. Any ideas? I know Austin is jam packed with awesome being that it’s all about music and food. So many choices! Help a girl out! I’ll let you know where we end up…
I am getting ready to take off for tour life and that means major packing is happening at Casa Hough! When it comes to traveling, I always keep my carry-on bag fully stocked with all my must haves. That way it’s on hand and ready to go, leaving one less thing to do when sorting out my suitcases.
What do I bring with me whenever I’m about to hit the road (or touch the sky)? Oh, just a few of my most favorite things:
