Vino Vino Yum Yum

Quite a serendipitous evening last night when the hub-man and I lucked into sharing a babysitter with friends (like hitting a clearance sale...1/2 price!!) and our early evening engagement ended ... well... early -- We took the opportunity to head over to Vino Vino to catch Miles Zuniga, singer/songwriter for Fastball doing a solo performance. His performance was strong, witty, heartfelt, and lively... and included special guests like new Austinite Freedy Johnston (Bad Reputation).

Of course, Vino Vino on Guadalupe in Hyde Park remains one of my all time fave local restaurants. Even my husband, a jaded veteran of the wine industry, is consistently thrilled with Vino Vino's enormous old world selection (and prices) of wines by the bottle (seen lining the walls in the pic above). They also have a beautiful menu offering small plates, "bigger" plates, and a selection of fine cheeses. My hubs was in love, quite literally, with a bottle of Corbieres (a French AC Red Wine) for $20 and the bison slider (mini-burger) for $5.
