of Junk - The pinnacle of Austin oddity.
This massive structure is made all the weirder
by being in the backyard in a seemingly normal
residential area. The mad genius artist, Vince
Hanneman, began this in 1989. It's his personal
home so do not just drop by. Use the
contact in the link, above, to check on
availability. A donation when you visit is your
ticket through the Pearly Gates.
Hope Outdoor Gallery - This homegrown site is at
the 1100 block of Baylor Street. Perhaps the
best contribution to Austin weirdness in the
Willie's - Helping Austin avoid reality
for over 40 years. Onward through the fog!

Museum of Natural
and Artificial Ephemerata - A treasury of
stuff that may exist. The visiting hours
may or may not exist too. Highly recommended.
- A hallucination of a home. Beautiful,
handmade, eco-friendly South Austin gem. The
owner also does great
Little Longhorn - A great bar at 5434
Burnet. Chickenshit Bingo on Sunday afternoons
is not to be missed. Great live music too.

All bowling alleys are good. This one also
has a fantastic collection of bowling kitsch and
a cool cafe (cheese enchiladas with fresh
homemade dinner rolls recommended).
Lawn - from the recent past, revived in
2005. A masterpiece.
