Owner description: City sponsored, multi block party every weekend in downtown Austin. Street is blocked off for pedestrians only around 11:PM. Best pub crawl

It smells worse than Bourbon Street and you could get stabbed. The sidewalks are filthy and you are packed in among crowds of very drunk 18-year-olds, trying to mate with each other and clueless tourists, who think they are experiencing the heart of Austin. Cheesy, muscled hawkers will try to con you into entering their bars, while gang bangers and homeless desperados are sizing you up for the hit. There is also a down side. I hear they are selling "Keep Louisville Weird" shirts in Kentucky, now. Indeed.

Just a bunch of bars. You walk down the street and at the end of it, you are probably wasted. It's a street.

There is a lot of construction (water pump system) going on right now that may last forever so please be prepared to take a taxi to downtown.

A few of the bars are nice and have good shows, but we're always overwhelmed with how many really drunk folks in their early 20s are stumbling around, and families with children in strollers out watching them. The place for cheap drinks and college bars, and a few gems hiding amongst them.

Do you feel like putting yourself in danger from drunks and out of control people on the street? How bout that bum that won't stop asking you for money and follows you around everywhere? Be smart and do some research before you go. You'll be suprised by all the crime you'll read about. Gun shots, stabbings and lots of break in's.
