When you see a gentlemen biking through Austin in a beige colored g-string and you don’t do a double take, is when you know you’re a true Austinite. In Austin, we see some crazy things: dogs being pushed in baby strollers, hipster beards for days, festivals for everything and endless tacos. So many tacos….
In the spirit of “a picture’s worth a thousand words,” check out these posts from Twitter and Instagram, all of which sum up Austin beautifully.

#3 A brunch bloody mary includes a taquito, a corndog and a mini cheeseburger. What a bargain!

#4 Austin dogs are so well behaved; you can put a potato chip on their head while they stare at your doughnut cheeseburger.
#5 And they get REALLY into festival fashion.
#6 We’re in the Live Music Capital of the World, and sometimes we just need to rock out on our vans.

#7 Sometimes we need to rock out at City Council meetings. That’s what we do.

#8 U.T.’s Legend of the Albino Squirrel is real, y’all.
#9 This glorious beard was shaved to point (literally) to this hipster’s equally awesome haircut.
#10 It’s actually pretty normal to get choked by shellfish on 6th Street.
#11 Even when it’s dessert time in Austin, it’s still taco time.
#12 A yogi posing in front of wall art? Yeah… that’s pretty darn Austin.
#13 We like apps that help get us home safely after a night of partying on Rainey Street. But we’ll take a horse, cowboy style, too.
#14 Running a 5K means something different here…it’s like Halloween. We run to bars, and beer replaces candy.
#15 Here in the ATX, we celebrate man boobs.
#16 Shoot, we may even put them on a statue!
#17 Nothing says “Keep Austin Weird” like Kazilla the Vanilla Gorilla at the Hope Outdoor Gallery.
#18 It’s getting so crowded here that we’ve resorted to drinking in shipping containers.

#19 Or just drinking in our homes with the help of an app.

#20 Our lawn care specialists are basically professional models.
