Austin Ranked Among Best Cities To Move To - 10/31/10 12:46 AM
Austin is ranked #5 among the best cities to move to because of quality of life and affordability. Travel Magazine rated it the #1 College Town. The cost of living is 2.4% below the national average. It's the #10 job market according to Indeed.com and the unemployment rate is well below the U.S. average. Just another great reason why you should move to Austin, TX! I was born and raised in Austin so I might be a little bias. However, I have traveled much of the world and have lived in Florida and Australia. I always come back to Austin. It has (5 comments)

Zingers Bar & Grill Located in The Hill Country Galleria: Not Your Typical Bar Food - 10/30/10 12:30 PM
Zingers Bar & Grill is located in The Hill Country Galleria next to Dick's Sporting Goods. This is a great place to watch the Rangers game today with indoor and outdoor seating. There are so many flat screen tv's that you will never miss a game from any seat in the house. The food is great with dishes such as parmesan tilapia and shrimp scampi....this isn't your typical bar food! My favorites are the ahi tuna and zmac. They have wii games for the kids. They open daily at 11 am. For more information check out zingersbar.com. Location: 12700 Hill Country BlvdS-100Austin, (0 comments)
