A visit to Top Notch, as seen in Dazed and Confused.
Abe and I decide to spend our last day at SXSW away from the madness. One of my favorite movies of all time is “Dazed and Confused.” This morning, I look up where it was filmed in Austin. I’m shocked to see that our hotel is 5 minutes away from one of the locations! Top Notch is a fast food burger joint where you can eat in or order from your car.
Abe and I are both car hop virgins!
Once you decide what you want, you press the red button
And talk to the friendly voice on the other side…
Then someone else brings the food out, and you tip ’em (I had to consult on twitter re: that etiquette)
We both got veggie burgers – which came charbroiled with tomato, lettuce, mayo, mustard and ketchup.
Plus a side of fried okra. Okra is probably the one food on earth that I don’t like (slime) but when fried, I will eat a lot of them!
I found it funny that Abe had to get out of the car to get ketchup.
Our flight to San Francisco isn’t until 7:45pm, so we killed time all around the city.
A candy shoppe….
BE STILL MY HEART:
An outdoor market on South Congress.
We got to the airport super early. The lines were insane! This was my first time getting pulled aside at security.
She literally took a piece of cloth and wiped my hands. Huh???
We have a long night ahead of us – another hour before our flight checks in, a transfer. I won’t be in bed til well after midnight. But we had such a lovely day; I’m in a good mood and don’t care! Also, I just got a nice call from my manager re: my audition that I put on tape the other day. The response from casting so far has been very positive! I’m still highly skeptical that anything will happen (I firmly believe they’ll end up offering the role to an A-list actress) but I’m just happy to hear good feedback.
