Funny Fridays ~ Only in Austin ~ El Arroyo ~ 4.12.2024

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. I really had to chuckle with #3 as it came out Monday, April 8th in the morning!

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!!

Good morning Dorie. Not sure about #1 and Mom but have quoted my Dad a lot over the year. As to #2 might be able to come up with some examples. And as to #3 it just passed. Enjoy your day. Keep them coming.

Hello Dorie - each marquee from El Arroyo in Austin provides some kind of memory.  This week's return of the solar eclipse may make the message number three last a bit longer than the actual event.  Happy Friday.  ☀️

Hi Dorie:

As so often happens I am late to the Friday Funnies but I sure did enjoy them. I think #1 is my favorite. #3 certainly came out at the right time!
