NI­COLE PORTWOOD

Austin Way - - THE SOURCE: SCENE -

WHO: VP brand mar­ket­ing, Tito’s Hand­made Vodka (titosvodka.com) and co-owner of Spar­tan Pizza (1007 E. Sixth St., 512-484-0798; spar­tan­piz­za­austin.com) AL FRESCO FAVE: “There’s al­ways magic in the air at Justine’s Brasserie (4710 E. Fifth St., 512-385-2900; justines1937.com), es­pe­cially when you dine out­side. It feels just on the edge of wild, as though any­thing could hap­pen at any mo­ment. I love to go there with my hus­band when we need a real grown-ups’ night out with­out the kids.” GET YOUR FREAK ON: “Honk!TX (honktx.org), a free fes­ti­val that hap­pens af­ter South by South­west, is like the al­ter­nate uni­verse ver­sion of SXSW. It brings out the weird, the freaky, and the fab­u­lous for a few days of in­ter­ac­tive street band per­for­mances.” KEEP CALM: “As Austin grows, quiet places are few and far between, but Emma Long Metropoli­tan Park (1600 City Park Rd., 512-974-1831) con­tin­ues to be a lush sanc­tu­ary. You’re sure to run into other hik­ers, usu­ally with their dogs.”
