Funny Friday's ~ Only in Austin ~ El Arroyo ~ 2.9.2024

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

El Arroyo stands as an iconic Austin gem, renowned for crafting the finest hand-squeezed margaritas and serving up delectable Black Angus beef tacos, among a plethora of other Tex-Mex delights, since 1975!

Situated at the corner of West 5th and Campbell, this local favorite boasts a quirky marquee that captures attention. Daily, the billboard transforms with a fresh pun—spanning the spectrum of wit and humor—making it a delightful fixture at the heart of Austin's culinary scene.

El Arroyo invites you to contribute your own puns on their website, with full permission to showcase them on their marquee. It's a quintessential "Keep Austin Weird" tradition that resonates with the spirit of our vibrant city!

The laughter doesn't stop there—they share these puns on Instagram, drawing in admirers like our very own Myrl JeffcoatKathy Streib, and chef Endre Barath, Jr.! Notably, Debe Maxwell, CRS, is also in on the fun. In a world where a daily chuckle is a necessity, following El Arroyo's Instagram for the latest pun is a shared joy.

Wishing you endless smiles! Happy Friday!!

Gotta love that third one, Dorie.  Reminds me of an escrow of a country property I once had.

Love them all, Dorie - and Michael Jacobs' comment about Erma Bombeck brought back wonderful memories! 

Funny but, I was one of the organizer for Charlotte's REBAR camps years ago. I arranged a dinner venue near the hotel and conference center the night before the conference. We all met in front and at one point, I looked up and EVERY SINGLE PERSON was on their phones. I exclaimed, "HEY, I'm SO excited to actually SEE you all in person!!" They all 'caught' the gist and the party began! 

So, I'm a big fan of #2 but, think they are all good!
