Editor's Letter

A neighbor driving by on


hen I was in graduate school at the University of Texas, I loved writing at Jo’s Coffee on South Congress. I would order a latte and a Marvelous Morning Muffin and watch the hustle and bustle of the avenue from behind my laptop screen. Coming from New York City what impressed me most about Austin (besides the people and the tacos) is the way the city seamlessly fuses indoor and outdoor spaces. Whether we’re dining al fresco, wandering through the city’s beautiful greenbelts, or just enjoying a coffee on the front porch, we are lucky that so much of our life is lived outdoors.

a tractor during our "Let’s Ride" shoot was wearing virtually the same outfit as Hoiden Supply Co.’s co-owner Madison Enloe. Just one of the magical moments we had during the making of this issue.

My mom snapped this photo at Spider House during her visit in February. We’re sitting outside, naturally.

After joining the TRIBEZA team as editor, I pulled that stack down off the shelf and began poring over the past issues in anticipation of this new role. When I realized my inaugural issue would be The Outdoors Issue, I was thrilled. For June, we visited some of Austin’s favorite restaurant and bar patios, hung out in some truly beautiful gardens, took a trip out to Driftwood, and spent one very long day with five friends as they rode through the Texas Hill Country on their motorcycles. We also found ourselves fishing in Shoal Creek, making boats in a Hyde Park garage, and surrounded by future Olympians in South Austin. It’s been an incredible few weeks. For nearly 15 years, TRIBEZA has been Austin’s premier arts, culture, and lifestyle magazine, and to be a part of this next chapter is an incredible honor. The editors who have come before, especially the incomparable Lauren Smith Ford who remains a beacon of guidance and inspiration, have charted an impressive course for this publication. I am eager to add to this legacy, and to tell the stories that make our beloved city such an extraordinary place to live.

Incidentally, Jo’s was also where I first encountered TRIBEZA. There, sitting on the wooden bench between a wall of posters and the patio tables, was a stack of the magazine. I grabbed a copy and devoured it, and over the next several years read it almost every month. Rather than part with old issues, I piled them in a perfect square stack on my bookshelf where they remain today.

Mikela Floyd grew up in Austin, and returned home after stints living in Los Angeles and New York. She works in communications for Whole Foods Market, and, in her free time, writes for numerous local publications. As someone who grew up in Austin, what's your trick to being outdoors in the summer? My trick to being outdoors in the summer? Staying indoors. Just kidding, it's linen. Lots of linen. I'm also big fan of trips to the Greenbelt or Barton Springs to keep cool, as well as matinees at Alamo Drafthouse. You wrote about patios (“Soak Up the Sun” page 64). In addition to the patios featured, where is your favorite patio in Austin? My favorite patio in Austin would have to be at The Liberty. The drinks are reasonably priced, the picnic tables ample, and the proximity to East Side King doesn't hurt, either. I’ve also spent many afternoons with friends at the Hotel San Jose. Their Tinto de Verano is my favorite summer cocktail.

Alysha Rainwaters is a native Texan who happily calls South Austin home. She lives for road trips and adventures with her husband, Matt, and daughter, Penelope. You shot Levitation 2015 for this month's "What Austin is Wearing" (page 96). What do you look for when shooting street style? I really just follow my instincts. Levitation draws a really stylish and interesting crowd, so it was really fun to interact with and capture the look of the fest. Anyone that follows your amazing Instagram knows you travel a lot. Since this is the Outdoors Issue, where is the most beautiful place you’ve been in the past year? Driving up the Pacific Coast High-

You pulled double duty with this story, serving as both photographer for the magazine and director of a 90-second film about the same subject. Do you approach the two differently? I find I approach the two the same way. The majority of photo assignments I've shot during my professional career have been with real people sometimes in very sensitive situations. I always try to find common ground with the subject, create comfort and trust and move from that place. That's the same whether you are dealing with a still camera or a motion camera — a foundation of

SPIN, and The AV Club. How do you find the buzzy stuff you’re always writing about in TRIBEZA Talk? Austin is full of passionate and creative folks who want to share their new endeavors. I love talking to artists and performers and entrepreneurs to hear what they're doing and what they're excited about in Austin. Casting a wide net and following my curiosity are usually good ways to discover something new and unique. Since this is the Outdoors Issue, where is your favorite place to kick back and enjoy nature? I'm definitely a regular runner on the Town Lake Trail, and I'm a big fan of Deep Eddy Pool. I'm originally from El Paso, so I also love going back and hiking in the mountains.

Outside In BY K R I STI N ARMSTRO NG I llu s tr ation by Joy G a ll agh er My daughter Grace had just finished up a pint of her all-time favor-

ite comfort food: mac ‘n’ cheese from Texas Honey Ham. Overstuffed, and in a carb coma, she moaned from the sofa, “Mom, I need to move. Will you go on a run with me?” I am not an evening exercise person. I am a get up, grab coffee, out-thedoor morning girl. But I love to run. And more than that, I love time with Grace, especially if she is requesting my company. Anyone who has raised or is raising teenagers knows when it comes to quality time, take what you can get when you can get it. So even though I had already gone running earlier that day, I suited up again. I remember “running” with Grace when she was young. This meant a high-speed sprint for about 50 yards, followed by slow walking, whining, and complaining about the heat and feeling itchy. I was not prepared for this new Grace, who kept a strong and steady pace, even on hills. “We can walk if you want?” I sputtered on a doozy of a climb. “Nah, I’m good,” she smiled, tossed her long ponytail, and soldiered on. I reminded myself that this was much healthier than being at home and having a nice, well earned glass of wine at the end of a full day. “So, Mom. What do you want to talk about?” she asked me as we cruised through the neighborhood. “Whatever you want to talk about,” I wheezed. When did she become as tall as me? How are her legs this long? “Let’s talk about my life plan,” she said. “Let’s do,” I agreed. This should be good. She talks and I listen, plus, maybe she will slow down? “So, I’m going to play lacrosse in high school, and get really good grades and probably get a scholarship. Then I’m going to go to UCSB. Eventually I want to live in Hope Ranch so I can have a nice house, be close to the beach, and have a horse. So, like, what job could afford that?” I thought for a second. “Hope Ranch is pretty expensive, so you will need

a really good job if you want to live there.” “Okay. I’ll be a doctor. But I don’t like blood or gross stuff, so maybe I’ll be a skin doctor, a dermis-something.” “Dermatologist?” I smiled, chugging along beside her. “Yeah, that. Okay, so I will go to medical school. Probably at USC or UCLA. Then I will open a practice in Santa Barbara, which is going to be awesome. You can get free treatments so you don’t look all old. I will hire great people and never have to work on Friday. I’ll have two horses and lots of dogs. One day I will go running on the beach and run into a hot guy I used to like in college, and he will go, ‘Hey, whoa Grace is that you?’ And I’ll be like, ‘Yeah,’ and we will run and talk and fall in love and then go to the courthouse in our running clothes and get married. We’ll have cute kids and you can watch them while I work and me and my hot husband go out and have fun. And I’ll live a long time, happily ever after, the end.” “Wow, honey. That sounds amazing. I love your life. I wonder what Isabelle will be doing?” “Oh she will totally live in the shack behind my house. She will still be my maid.” I stopped running and doubled over with laughter. Isabelle, her twin sister, is the total neat freak who really does clean up after Grace’s pigpen mess that trails in a constant wake behind her. What a gift to run and laugh with my girl, to hear her plans and listen to her dreams. To just be beside her, matching her pace, and acknowledging that she really is growing up. And that fact needs to stop surprising me. What if I missed that run? What if I had no time or inclination to go outside and play? Conversations are different outside. They are different when you are doing something active, looking straight ahead instead of directly at each other. Maybe the best part about being outside is that it takes us outside ourselves.

Michael Bull

a lifelong cr af tsman teaches locals the art of boat building


ichael Bull, an Englishman turned Austinite, has been working with boats since his days growing up in Southampton, where he was trained in the apprentice system. But it wasn’t boats that brought Bull across the pond. “I came to the United States as a musician, basically,” Bull explains, sipping tea in his modern, light-filled Hyde Park home, as his 14-year-old dog, Lillian, stretches out by his feet. Bull landed in New York, but found gigs weren’t easy to come by. After a few years, he felt a pull back toward the boatyards and the water, and applied for a job at the South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan. “I still remember the very first day I got to do that job. It was teaching, something I had never really done before.” But it was clearly something he had a knack for. After a decade running a boat building school and restoring old vessels at the Seaport Museum, Bull and his wife found their way to Austin the way a lot of us did: at a friend’s urging. “She said this is a great place to visit, and we came to visit and we liked it. We said, ‘We could give this a try.’” Bull landed a job at the Austin Community College Riverside campus, where he set up a 12-week canoe-building workshop. It was this class that served as the inspiration for "Bulwarks," the canoe making workshop Bull now runs out of his garage. Open to anyone and hosted over two consectutive Saturdays, everyone walks out of Bulwarks with his or her very own 16-foot wooden canoe. Standing in his garage, Bull talks excitedly about his next project, which is along the lines of a mini, wooden gondola. Shaped almost like a catamaran, the “skullcap,” as he calls it, features a spot for sculling and a deck for lounging. It’s only a quarter-sized model we’re looking at, but hearing him talk, it’s easy to imagine that a fleet of the fullsized versions will be floating down Lady Bird Lake very soon. s. sokolove

6 Questions for michael What sorts of people take your class? I’ve had all sorts of people … men, women, fathers and daughters, fathers and sons, uncles and nephews … just a whole array of different types of people from all walks of life. And almost all of them have had no experience whatsoever in boat building. What does a perfect day (or a perfect moment) look like for you? You know, I love playing soccer. I played for quite a long time when I was in England, and then I stopped

30 june 2015


playing in New York. When I came to Austin I met a whole soccer community, and I started playing again. Playing soccer just gives me a really cool, pleasant [feeling]. Also, spending a lovely day out on the water, which I don’t do so much of, but when I do, it’s great. Do you have a favorite body of water? Well, where I come from, the body of water that I grew up on is the Solent. Which is the mouth of the river that goes to Southampton. It’s a huge seaport, and I’ve always loved it. My wife comes from Newport [Rhode Island], and we go up there often. I love that area … that water is beautiful, too. And the river down here has always appealed to me, [and] Lake Austin. So I guess all of those, really. Do you still play music?

We play little get-togethers with our friends on the weekends. And I try to get out to see music at The Elephant Room as much as possible — it’s got a great jazz environment, which I really like. In addition to boats, you also build houses. Any future plans? I’m close to retiring from building homes for other people, [and] what I want to do is be able to set up a concession on the river and rent out to people the skullcap boat I’m working on, and that would help to sponsor the boat making school. Adam Pyrek, an architect, and I are working on the design together. I can’t wait. That’s not a bad way to retire… That’s the thing isn’t it? I don’t want to do nothing … and even though I’ve done this before, I’ve always loved this. p h oto g r a p h y by l e a h ov er s t r ee t

ATX Television Festival


he ATX Television Festival is back for a fourth year, and bringing with it some of the most popular shows to ever grace the small screen. Running June 4-7, Hollywood heavy hitters like Danny Strong (Empire), James L. Brooks (Terms of Endearment, The Simpsons), Marta Kauffman (Friends), Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls), will take over downtown locales like the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel and the State Theatre for a weekend of entertainment and education. This year’s packed lineup also includes the highlypublicized reunions of the Gilmore Girls and Queer as Folk casts, as well as the Dawson’s Creek writing team. Other special events include the ATX Television pitch competition which gives budding TV execs a chance to pitch their show ideas to industry insiders. Narrowed down from 25 semi-finalists, 10 teams will have 90 seconds to explain why their scripted series just may be the next big thing in television. If you haven’t purchased your badge yet, don’t worry — you can still partake in the festivities. On Friday, June 5, the Hotel San Jose will host a Friday Night Lights tailgate complete with traditional tailgating activities, live music, cast member appearances, and the screening of one FNL episode selected by attendees. The next morning, head to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar for “Best. Morning. Ever.” presented by Hasbro Studios. Enjoy pancakes and cereal while you watch classic cartoons like My Little Pony, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, and Littlest Pet Shop on the big screen. Pajamas are highly encouraged, and remember to RSVP to both events at atxfestival.com prior to heading out. k. friel

Frank Reaugh L a n d s c a p e s o f T e x a s a n d t h e Am e r i c a n W e s t


eginning in August, the Harry Ransom Center will feature an exhibition exploring the work of artist and naturalist Charles Franklin Reaugh. An Illinois native, Reaugh arrived in Texas in 1876 and gained notoriety for his Impressionist-style work featuring such subjects as Texas Longhorn cattle and the expansive prairies of the Lone Star State. Today, Reaugh is considered one of the Southwest’s most distinguished artists. Inspired by the Impressionists of his time, Reaugh created custom color pastels to capture the natural flora in areas such as Big Bend and the Texas Panhandle. Said Reaugh about his work, “No other artist had the opportunity — or the desire — to paint such subjects." Audiences can view more than 100 works by this master of pastel beginning August 4 (through November 29). The HRC pulled from its own collection as well archives, museums, and private collections to amass this unique retrospective of Reaugh’s career. In celebration of the show, University of Texas Press will publish Windows on the West: The Art of Frank Reaugh in September 2015. Edited by Peter Mears, the HRC’s curator of art, the book features work ranging from field sketches to the pastels that made Reaugh famous. Frank Reaugh: Landscapes of Texas and the American West appears at the Harry Ransom Center Galleries from August 4-November 29. For more information, please go to hrc. utexas.edu. k. friel

Through serving on the leadership council of Emerging Professionals in Conservation (EPIC), Fehrenkamp has also come across some of Austin’s less frequented hiking trails, like the limestone and gravel paths at Milton Riemer’s Ranch Park, just south of Hamilton Pool, the rolling hills of Westcave Preserve, and the water-side trails of

Working as a landscape architect for 15 years in Austin, Daniel Woodroffe cultivated a commitment to outdoor spaces that runs deep. As the president of the Austin Parks Foundation, Woodroffe works to revitalize spaces like Republic Square, and raise the profile of neighborhood parks that need more care and attention. He also looks for ways to share the outdoors with his 3-year-old son, Ethan. “Whether that’s taking him camping or having a day out at Barton

Summer days are made to be outside, but not without a little SPF. Dr. Jennifer Gordon of Westlake Dermatology offers these tips for keeping your skin safe in the summer sun. How to battle aging: “You definitely want a sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 or higher, and is broad spectrum so it covers both UVA and UVB rays. The more we know about UVA, [the more] it looks like it can cause skin cancer, and it is also the big culprit in aging.” Favorite sunscreen: “For athletes and those working out, I’m a big fan of Neutrogena and their Helioplex line. They have one called Wet Skin that’s great if you’re sweating or in the water.” Take a shot: “If you think about a shot glass, that’s how much sunscreen should be going on your entire body. You want to fill up that shot glass completely.” No. 1 rule: “Reapplication of sunscreen is huge. That’s the step a lot of us forget, and why we end up burned.” For more information, visit westlakedermatology.com tribeza.com june 2015

If you’ve strolled up and down the Pfluger Circle at

the Lady Bird Lake Trail, or driven by the Belo Center for New Media on Guadalupe, you have seen and experienced the work of award-winning landscape architect, Christy Ten Eyck. Since opening her firm Ten Eyck Landscape Architects in 2007, she has built an impressive resume landing projects like the San Antonio Children’s Museum and Dallas’ Parkland Hospital. Although commercial projects take up the majority of Ten Eyck’s time these days, her personal West Austin residence (where she was photographed for this story) showcases her impeccable design eye in the residential space. The half-acre site features a courtyard centered around a brimming concrete water trough in a grove of native Possumhaw trees, and feels like an oasis in the middle of the city. Growing up, Ten Eyck was interested in marine biology, architecture, and horticulture. “I didn’t know about landscape architecture until my mother forced me to pick something prior to going to college,” she says. “Landscape

architecture was the perfect mix of what I wanted to do!” Though she launched her firm in Phoenix in 1997, Ten Eyck eventually moved her office to Austin. She says the breakthrough moment of her career happened when she was awarded the University of Texas at El Paso Campus Transformation Project and the San Antonio Botanical Garden new entry complex project. Ten Eyck is continually driven by a desire to create meaningful, memorable places that bring nature in to the city. “Many of our urban projects take place in old parking lots or underutilized forgotten areas. There is nothing better than ripping up asphalt,” she says. “That has to be one of my favorite pastimes!” A Dallas native, Ten Eyck is excited to about working on a new park in her hometown. In Austin, she and her team are hard at work on a new landscape concept for Clark Lyda’s The Commodore Perry Estate Redevelopment including the gardens, outdoor spaces, and restoration of Waller Creek that runs through the property. “After the blood, sweat and tears of construction and working the long hours on these projects, there is nothing better than seeing people enjoying the places we help create,” she says. “It was an absolute thrill to see the construction fence taken down at UTEP and watching the students run onto Centennial Green to experience it for the first time or being at the garden party at the new Texas French Bread outdoor space as it was filled with people having fun. Creating spaces that allow people to experience joy and create memories in a beautiful, authentic setting is the privilege of our profession.” For more information on Ten Eyck Landscape Archi-

Christy Ten Eyck ’s 3 Tips for Backyard Design

1. Balance textural hardscape with planting, and if you have to choose in our hot climate, I would lean towards more planting. Think of it like a room— what is the ceiling (branches of a tree or a vine covered arbor)? What is the wall (a hedge or a beautiful wall)? 2. Comfort—shade, comfortable and elegant furniture, beautiful lighting, mosquito control! 3. Engage as many senses as possible—the sound and sight of a mirror of water, the sight and sounds of leaves rustling in the breeze, the fragrance of kidneywood, almond verbena or jasmine, the coolness of shade, the touch of an old fossil or weathered stone.

Hopping in the passenger seat of David Wilson’s truck, I

didn’t realize I was going to go behind the gates of some of the most impressive homes across the city, all of which Wilson

a remodel off Stratford Drive with a modern, but inviting, outdoor entertaining space that overlooked an expansive pool. After that, we took a winding road to a grand home just off Lady Bird Lake with sweeping views of downtown. As we breezed by a perfectly groomed French chateau-style home surrounded by formal gardens, I realized this Waco native, a much sought after landscape designer with kind, hazel eyes, can design much more than just one style. Finally, we headed down the road to Tarrytown where we walked through a lush, modern take on a yard and pool fit for an updated cottage. Wilson’s love of gardening started at an early age. After his grandmother gave him a few small plants, he took them home

dav i d w i l s o n g a r d e n d e s i g n

has designed the landscapes for throughout his almost 30 year

and planted them in his parents’ garden. He remembers: “I found having this private space and time to be very rewarding.” Wilson earned an associate’s degree in horticulture and naturally migrated to landscape design and construction. He launched his company, David Wilson Garden Design, with his business partner and Oxford College of Garden Design graduate Marco Rini in 1987. Since then, he has wowed clients with his special ability to dream up various landscape design scenarios far beyond what the homeowners themselves had ever imagined, often just moments after he has stepped on to a property. It’s impossible for Wilson — whose business has grown organically through word of mouth over the years — to pick a favorite project from his impressive portfolio, but there is one kind of project that excites him most. “My favorite projects tend to be sites that clients have lived on for many years. When I am allowed to step in and renovate a space that has been a part of their daily life and transform it into something new and refreshing, it is really exciting,” he says. “I also love to tackle large construction projects that involve significant grading work. I experience that same elated feeling I felt when playing with a Tonka dump truck that I found in the sandbox.” With a bounce in his step and an infectious love of the outdoors, I hustled to keep up with Wilson’s quickly moving work boots and couldn’t help but feel disappointed when our off-thebeaten-path tour of Austin’s most fabulous gardens came to an end. For more information on Wilson’s work, visit dwgd.com.

David Wilson’s 3 tips for the Perfect Outdoor Entertaining Space

1. Furniture, potted plants, and a viewing space to absorb other vistas in the landscape are essentials. I tend to design outdoor spaces so my client backs to less desirable views, focusing all attention to the most impressive areas. 2. Scent and color are important to have near entertainment areas. Some of my favorites to have nearby are Osmanthus, Sweet Olive, and Iceberg Rose. 3. Shade! Always consider a cool area for guests. tribeza.com june 2015

As winter thaws and scorching summer temperatures await, one thing gives Austinites the hope they need to get through it all: patio season. Since the window of opportunity wherein one can sit outside and not suffer is narrow, it’s important to literally soak up the sun before being outside becomes unbearable. But which of Austin’s al fresco offerings should you enjoy first? The list is long, and with new spots opening left and right, it’s hard to narrow down the options. Thankfully, we’ve mapped out four go-to locales to ensure you make the most of your outdoor enjoyment, from brunch to shopping to a delightful nightcap — and all within biking distance of one another. tribeza.com june 2015

P e r l a’ s

Perla’s is the first stop on this perfect patio hop. Sit amongst the hustle and bustle of the South Congress weekend crowd while savoring a crab cake Benedict or a housemade Pop-Tart. Feeling fancy? Start things off with a few dozen oysters on the half shell sourced from the Northeast and Canada, or enjoy one of the restaurant’s infamous lobster rolls. Since brunch is the meal of a thousand beverages, there should be no fewer than three drinks per person on the table at all times – a cup of Stumptown Coffee, an ice cold Topo Chico, and one of Perla’s signature cocktails, like the passion fruit-filled Sea Turtle. And, of course, plenty of people watching is always on the menu.

snack Keep the afternoon festivities flowing with a visit to the Hotel San Jose’s courtyard lounge – no room key required. Mix and mingle with both guests and locals as you settle in poolside at a secluded corner table, or opt for a more out-in-theopen spot on the patio. Unwind with one of their house specialties, like the oddly delicious Tinto de Verano, a sunset-inspired cocktail of red wine and orange soda that’s a tasty throwback to the fruit punch flavored juice boxes of childhood. Or sip on the always-refreshing Rosso Amaro – a bubbly citrus combination of Prosecco and grapefruit juice. If you’re feeling peckish, partake in some wasabi peas while you scan the crowd for visiting celebrities. If you happen to get lucky, you might even get to enjoy some live entertainment, courtesy of one of their weekly-featured DJs or bands.

Grab a B-cycle outside of Jo’s Coffee and head over to the east side to the new Cesar Chavez hotspot Stay Gold. (The bike ride will help work off all the hollandaise sauce you had at brunch.) Hopefully, one of your friends packed Cards Against Humanity in their bag so you can start a casual table game with fellow patiophiles. After an afternoon of mimosas and micheladas, switch things up with one of their signature spring cocktails like the refreshing Black Bee, a combination of gin, lemon, and blackberries. Or keep things simple and channel your inner Don Draper with their take on a classic Old Fashioned, made with High West Double Rye. Soak up some of that fun with a scrumptious sandwich from the Toaster trailer, now parked there daily. Chef Hannah Love, formerly of Jeffrey’s, Perla’s, and Clark’s, serves dishes like crunchy pulled pork tacos, mac ‘n’ cheese, and buffalo chicken sandwiches.

From the organic mattresses to the 65,000 galloon rainwater tank, Oohla Bean’s thoughtful design pairs luxury with sound environmental choices.

he inspiration of Oohla Bean began, strangely enough, in the mountains of Ecuador. In 2009, along with her sister and brother-in-law, Houston native Robin Garrison embarked on

a hike and bike trip across the South American country and ended up in a charming resort called Hacienda Zuleta. “It was so fun and so warm,” explains Garrison. “They had a fireplace going all the time and a couple of different places you could go and sit and read.” Zuleta also offered personal touches — bottles of wine available to guests on an honor system, a garden, and a warm staff — that made the atmosphere feel more like staying at a friend’s house than a sterile hotel. During a return visit a year later, Garrison found she was still inspired by Zuleta. “I thought, ‘This is what I want to do,’” she says. Though she was in the foothills of the Andes when the moment of inspiration struck, the journey toward Oohla Bean began back in Houston. One of five children, Garrison remembers long family road trips to her father’s home state of Kentucky. “I’d go, ‘Daddy what are they growing over there? What plant is that?’” Though she didn’t realize it at the time, Garrison was developing a lifelong love of both food and environmentalism.

With 85 acres to roam, Oohla Bean offers coolers and portable speakers for those looking to enjoy the property’s natural charm.

nion.” Says Butler, “We were trying to invoke the idea of communion with the self, with nature, and with a dear loved one.” (And if you’re dying to know what the name means — we certainly were — “Oohla” is the nickname given to Garrison by her granchild, and Bean is her sweet little terrier.) Oohla Bean’s commitment to nature extends to every aspect of the inn. In addition to being outfitted with a 65,000 gallon rainwater collection tank, Oohla Bean is wired to install solar panels in the future. Inside the luxurious rooms, guest will find organic, hypo-allergenic pillows and mattresses, refillable Molton Brown toiletry bottles (a company picked, says Garrison, because they are paraben-free and use fewer pesticides), and S’well Bottles — details that speak to the inn’s ethos. These thoughtful details also speak to Garrison’s ability to make her guests feel like an extension of her inner circle. “When I was building this, the project manager asked, ‘Are you really building this for guests? Or for your friends and family?’” says Garrison, laughing. Though Oohla has already played host to holiday celebrations and family vacations, Garrison’s vision of hospitality harkens back to that trek through the Andes and her stay at the homey Hacienda Zuleta. In addition to daily breakfast, Oohla Bean offers lunch and dinner options with advanced notice. (Garrison prefers to plan ahead so meals don’t go to waste. “I don’t like waste,” she says. And I believe you can have more quality [this way.]”) Though the inn has already been open for a few months, Garrison has been slow to get the word out, preferring instead to work out the kinks and slowly build Oohla’s reputation as a premier Hill Country destination. “It’s kinda like I built it, now will they come?” she says. “But yet I’m patient cause I want the right people to come. I think they will.” With luxurious amenities, never-ending vistas, and a host like Garrison, we bet they’re already on their way.

behind the scenes

Feldkamp strolls past South Lamar traffic in pursuit of his mid-day catch.

Even in the shadow of a downtown high-rise, Feldkamp finds peace in Austin nature.

hen Eric Feldkamp started his popular blog, ”Die Fische” (German for “all the fish”) nearly eight years ago, it was simply to document his new fly-fishing hobby and share adventures with his dad and brother. Within a few short months of starting the “Die Fische," Feldkamp met and married his wife, moved to Austin, became a father, and started a new job. As a retail worker — and current manager of Whole Earth Provision Co. — fly-fishing provided Feldkamp a respite. “I always needed to get away,” Feldkamp says. A former skateboarder, Feldkamp has long had a proclivity for individual sports. “It's the most ‘Zen’ sport I can think of, exploring places and spending time by myself,” he explains. “It grew from the need to find a quiet space while also being active.” For the first few years after he began his new hobby, Feldkamp wouldn’t even accept offers to go fishing with others. But through his blog, Feldkamp built a community and a reputation for being very generous about sharing the best spots to catch fish in the Austin area. Though many Austinites assume it’s necessary to leave town to find good fishing, Feldkamp says that is not true. “People don’t realize how much good fishing there is right around here, even in the downtown area.” Feldkamp is so dedicated to this idea that he often spends his lunch break at Shoal Creek in the heart of downtown Austin. Looking like a picture from a storybook, Feldkamp can often be seen crossing South Lamar Boulevard while hauling his rod and gear. Under the Fifth Street Bridge, Feldkamp catches sunfish, large mouth bass, and Rio Grandes, which he says, “almost make you feel like you’re looking at stars — they nearly glow.” He releases his catch, of course, as it’s impressive that p h oto g r a p h y b y da n i e l c ava zo s

fish even survive in the murky waters of Shoal Creek. It may not always be the most idyllic setting, Feldkamp says, but he wants people to realize that fishing can happen almost anywhere. “There is a level of commitment standing under bat droppings, stinky under bridges, and in muddy, sinking ground, but I want to spread the good word [about] fishing for what is nearby and making the most of it.” For Feldkamp, what started as an outlet for stress has made him passionate about improving Austin’s water and air quality through organizations like the Shoal Creek Conservancy, and to encourage others to slow down and appreciate the city’s natural beauty. “People have a habit of powering through their lunch breaks. It’s good to get out in the fresh air, because this town has so much to offer. I just happen to fly-fish, but everyone should find something they’re passionate about and go out and do it everyday, even if it’s just for the lunch hour.” a . carney

A lightweight rod is perfect for catching the little swimmers typically found in Shoal Creek.

1. Three-way lightweight rod and reel: This is a nice lightweight

setup. A small fish on a setup like this feels just like a big fish would on a bigger rod, which is the nice thing about it. There’s a lot of action on this rod. 2. Flies: The black and chartreuse ones are poppers. Especially around here, in waters like Shoal Creek, I use little poppers that imitate fallen bugs and things like that. They’re a lot of fun because they float on the surface and are colorful so you get to see fish come up and catch them, as opposed to a stringer that goes down to the bottom. 3. Fishing license: Definitely something you need if you’re going to fish in Texas. You’re going to encounter a game warden at some point. So it’s good to have because it’s the law, but also because a lot of money from that goes to support stocking fish throughout the state. 4. Tippet: The tippet is what goes between the line and the fly. It’s super thin, so all the fish see is the fly. I use very lightweight stuff, lighter than what I would normally use, because the waters are so shallow in Shoal Creek, so it’s harder for the fish to see it. The stuff I use probably gets down to the thickness of a hair strand. 5. Hemostats scissors: So these are what you use to get the crushed barbed hooks out of the fish’s mouth. That way you can handle them less, so it’s less stressful for them. I’m not in it to hurt the fish. This pair is nice because the hemostats is the part at the end that looks like pliers, and a little further up are built-in scissors — two tools in one, so there’s one less thing to carry around.

here’s a quiet little renaissance happening on Anderson Lane, where restaurants are sprouting like toadstools along this bustling uptown corridor. One of the newest — and best — is Fork & Vine. I first visited the restaurant on a rainy, dreary night, but found the inside was welcoming and cheerful. Tucked away in the corner of a shopping center, Fork & Vine beckoned with the warm glow of seductive lighting and polished wood. Its industrial chic design — compliments of architect Dick Clark + Associates — was a stylish blend of urbane and rustic, with some walls covered in sleek black subway tiles complimented by others painted deep burgundy. Rooms were divided by luxurious drapes and glass garage doors. There were booths, wooden dining tables, and bistro high-tops. A cozy wine nook accommodated a dozen diners and an outdoor patio was shaded by a wooden arbor. Even the flatware and plates reflected the unique, thoughtful decor. As we shook off the rain, our sunny waitress,

Kaylan, went over the menu and specials. Rarely have I had a server as enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Other servers seemed equally attentive and during their brief idle time, I noticed them fussing over table settings and polishing wine glasses. Fork & Vine’s global cuisine has a Southern slant, and we started with the signature pork ribs. Perfectly charred and slathered in a mayo and horseradish-based white sauce, they arrived in a sizzling cast iron skillet atop tender barbecued peanuts that mimicked baked beans. It was a lipsmacking, finger-licking good start to our meal. Next came a refreshing, inventive salad composed of arugula, quinoa, pumpkin seeds, and sweet carrots prepared three ways: roasted, sliced, and shaved. Tossed in coriander vinaigrette and accented with zingy-orange slices, it was simply delicious. For entrees, the fried chicken was outstanding. Crispy and succulent, the free-range bird was drizzled with shishito pepper hot sauce and served with a savory potato, leek, and fennel cake along with a unique slaw of cabbage, kale, and

grapes tossed in a maple dressing. Less successful was a side of grilled vegetables that were unevenly cooked and coated in a pasty Thai curry. We ended on a high note, however. The chocolate torte was divine: dark and dense, but not too sweet or heavy, and crowned with homemade marshmallow ice cream. Heaven. As its name implies, Fork & Vine is as much about the wine as the food. The wine list has hundreds of tempting bottles, but there’s also a large craft beer selection and a full bar. During our meal, we took advantage of a half-price sparkling wine special and ordered a bottle of Bonomi Franciacorta, an elegant selection from Lombardy, Italy, that nicely complemented all of our dishes. Chef/owner Camden Stuerzenberger is both creative and talented, and I suspect his restaurant will emerge as one of Anderson Lane’s — and Austin’s — brightest culinary stars. In fact, Fork & Vine was recently voted CultureMap’s Best New Restaurant. The word is out, and the sun is shining down on Fork & Vine. k. spezia P h oto g r aphy by b r en da n p u th o ff
