Funny Friday's ~ Only in Austin ~ El Arroyo ~ 5.17.2024

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!!

Dorie,  Most are always good for a chuckle, then like today you find one that catches you and find yourself in a room laughing hard all by yourself.  I believe I can now claim to be the outdoorsy type as well.  lol
