Welcome to Get Happy Austin-a blog dedicated to good eats on the cheap. Eating out has always been a passion of mine; mostly due to the fact that I really don’t like to cook. The whole process takes up way too much of my day. It begins at the grocery store, which in my case entails wandering around with the cart in circles not having a clue what the hell to buy, mainly because I have no idea what I am trying to cook. The actual cooking is another ordeal, which usually ends with my kitchen looking like a bomb exploded. Not to mention that the actual meal is not something I would brag about…or want to feed to anyone. Then there is the clean-up phase which, let’s face it, is not what I want to be spending my precious free time doing on a beautiful evening in this awesome city of ours.
What is the solution to my dilemma? Going out to eat of course! Let someone else worry about the groceries, the recipes, the cleaning up. All I really care about is the eating part. This town has so many great restaurants with new ones opening up all the time. But you do have to be careful-eating out can really get pricey. Believe me, I know.
So I’ve decided to spend my hard-earned dollars more wisely without giving up my passion for great food by taking advantage of happy hour specials at many of the great restaurants around town. And I will be sharing all these great finds so that you too can eat and drink on the cheap!
