Kolaches of Shame

Sunday October 21st

When: 11am-1pm

Where: BATCH

3220 Manor Rd, Austin, TX 78723

Central Texas was once settled by many Czechs, a cultural wellspring that now manifests itself primarily as a regional preoccupation with pastry. Sunday morning we're planning to say our goodbyes at an indoor/outdoor kolache joint.

Backup plans to be sorted out in the event of Lightning.

 

Lodging:

There are lots of great hotels, motels, hip trailer parks, airbnbs and vrbo locations worth staying at in Austin.

We suggest you choose what feels right to you.

Book early, it’s Formula 1 weekend (sorry), and hotels are filling up.

Some guests have started filling up Homewood Northwest, which has reasonable rates and a nice looking pool.

Neighborhood Guidance:

In general, any place with a numbered street nearby from 1st to 45th street is a decently central place to stay.

Most likely you will need a car to get around, unless you feel like taking a lot of pedicabs and Lyfts.

From 20th to 33rd is UT college town.

Anything on the South side of the river (a.k.a. Town Lake) is also great and where we are staying - around South 1st, South Lamar, and South Congress.

East Austin on the other side of I-35 is more residential and calm and likely to be cheaper for AirBnBs, but is close enough to be convenient with a lot of interesting places popping up, as well.

Anything North of 45th will most likely be a more casual hotel experience; this is the zone of strip malls, suburbia, and Jennifer’s childhood. Not too exciting but if you don’t mind driving 15-30 min to get to stuff and the budget fits, go for it!

Here's a map showing Malverde in relation to Homewood NW, the house we rented, the house Chelsea rented, and the house where Jennifer grew up.
