Do What You Love: BoardLife Austin at Lamar Union


                             

Austinites love what we do, and Drew of BoardLife Austin at Lamar Union on South Lamar is no exception.  One of our agents, Eric Vidaurri, met Drew and got to take out a Boosted Board for a spin.  Check out his fun journey above or here.


Drew is assistant manager at BoardLife Austin, a skate shop and boutique on South Lamar.  He loves being surrounded by the skate life every day, he loves the casual atmosphere, and he loves setting people up with skateboards and seeing a smile on their face.  


Drew and BoardLife got their fifteen minutes of fame when Casey Neistat, YouTube personality and filmmaker, headed to BoardLife when his Boosted Board crashed out at SXSW earlier this year.  Then he hit the pavement to see Austin at 20 mph.  Check out his wild ride.  


In Eric's video, he tools around Lamar Union on the Boosted Board checking out all the cool shops and restaurants in the complex. You can get pretty much anything you need just a few steps from your apartment!


Start your day off right with a cup of joe from Caffe Medici, a beautiful coffee shop in the heart of Lamar Union.  Their baristas will help you get your caffeine fix no matter what you desire.


Lick Ice Creams prides themselves on using pure, wholesome ingredients in their artisanal ice creams.  All of their milk and cream come from a local dairy and all of their ingredients are made by hand in their kitchen, resulting in a tasty frozen treat you can feel good about eating.  


Vox Table is a New-American style restaurant serving chef-crafted small plates that feature farm-to-table ingredients, plus an extensive handcrafted cocktail menu.  Their happy hour is among the best in town where every Monday through Friday from 5 to 6:30pm you can get heavily discounted bites and booze at the bar.


Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar and The Highball form an entertainment duo you can’t beat.  At Alamo, check out first run flicks and fun events like sing-a-longs and showings with special meals themed to the movie being shown while enjoying your favorite beverage and a meal.  Best of all, they require a silent theater and aren’t afraid to kick out patrons who don’t adhere to their no talking, no texting policy. The Highball has amazing themed private karaoke rooms, a dance floor, a stage where legends like Dale Watson hold court, and more fancy cocktails, craft draft beers, and bar snacks than you can shake a stick at.  


Jose Luis Salon has an outpost at Lamar Union where they offer haircuts and coloring, waxing services, and skincare treatments from facials to peels and more.
