10 Undeniable Things You’ll Find In Every Austin Home
In between concerts, greenbelt hikes, and delicious meals, the people of Austin love to kick back at home. If you look closely, you’ll find that there’s a common thread of items found here. These are 10 undeniable things you’ll find in every Austin home.
1. Tortilla chips
Whether you're dipping them into creamy queso or spicy salsa, there's almost always a bag of tortilla chips in the pantry.
2. Instruments hanging on the wall
It doesn't matter if it's a ukulele, guitar, banjo, or mandolin. Austinites never really feel at home unless there are a couple of instruments lining the walls.
3. Take-out menus from Austin's best restaurants
When hunger strikes, there's no time to whip up a meal at home. More than likely, you'll see menus from Home Slice Pizza, Chilantro, and Tuk Tuk Thai plastered to any Austinite's refrigerator.
4. A six pack of local beer
We take pride in Austin's local businesses. You'll hardly ever see any national beer brands grace the shelves in our homes, but you will definitely come across a few cans of Austin Beerworks.
5. Old ticket stubs and concert memorabilia
Some concerts have a way of sticking with you, and Austinites want to make sure those memories live on forever. Every Austinite has a sentimental piece of concert memorabilia tucked away in their home.
6. A yoga mat
Sure, Austinites love delicious food, but they know how to stay fit, too. Whether you're practicing on the rooftop of Whole Foods or a yoga studio downtown, there's no denying locals' love for a relaxing flow.
7. A bottle of BBQ Sauce
This stuff tastes good on just about everything, and Austinites wouldn't want to be without it.
8. Dozens of bathing suits
Austinites are ready for a dip in Barton Springs Pool during every season, so it's no surprise that we own more bathing suits than we really need. Some locals opt to just leave a few in the trunks of their cars for those last-minute trips to the pool.
9. Bike locks, tire pumps, and helmets
Austinites love biking, so we've got to be prepared! Don't be surprised to find a whole patio filled with bicycle maintenance supplies.
10. A few bottles of Topo Chico
Austin locals could write sonnets about their love for Topo Chico. This bubbly, lime-infused water is irresistibly good. You don't want to be without it.
