The beautiful wife and I had worked demolotion both saturday and sunday at our wimberley property. It was time for the Austin Restaurant Week 2 reward.

yes, it was in the 80's outside (May in TX) but that A/C in the W hotel works really well. Kat likes to warm her bones by the fire in their Living Room. 

Then we went on to dinner at Finn and Porter:
