Funny Friday's ~ Only in Austin ~ 8-12-2022

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

El Arroyo is an iconic local spot in Austin. They make the best hand-squeezed margaritas and serve Black Angus beef tacos (along with many other Tex- Mex offerings) and have since 1975! 

A quirky marquee is out front on the corner of West 5th and Campbell. Every day they change their billboard with a new pun (everything imaginable).

This week locals have submitted their puns on their website and of course El Arroya has permission to post them. It’s one of those “Keep Austin Weird” things that we all love!

You can check out their Instagram. I learned our very own Myrl Jeffcoat in Active Rain follows them! We all need some laughter or a chuckle each day! I always check out to see the new pun for the day, hope you enjoy this batch.

Hello Dorie - El Arroyo in Austin continues to "keep it weird" (and fun as well as another place to find some good food).  Just as it should.  🙃

Hi Michael Jacobs : We all love El Arroyo's puns. We were downtown the other night and drove by slowly so we could see the one they put up!

I always enjoy a good pun.  I would go to El Arroyo's just for the good pun, but I would stay for one of their margaritas.  I love margaritas!!!

Very cute, Dorie... I especially liked the one about procrastination. You got my mouth watering when you mentioned black angus tacos.

Black Angus Beef Tacos sound really wonderful, Dorie.  I must admit one of the very best Mexican dinners I ever ate was in Texas!

Dorie I bet they get a lot of creative saying for their billboard.  I like the one on procrastination.

I remember that Myrl Jeffcoat said she follows them and I am sure it gives her a chuckle each and every day.
