East Side or South Side
It’s Election Day at Consuela, and the nominees are ready to duke it out! Read the debate and cast your vote. Will it be the East Side, or South Side Tote that takes the Win? We will start with you, East Side Tote…
VIBRANT EAST AUSTIN
Our East Side Tote is a tribute to the hip, edgy, vibrant, East Side of Austin!
Neon and graffiti fill the streets alongside trendy bars, restaurants and art galleries. Forbes named East Austin #7 of the top 10 hippest neighborhoods in the US, which isn’t surprising with its youthful spirit and diverse community! Both hipsters and locals have created their home on this side of town showcasing their voice through vintage fashion, urban art, elevated street food, festivals and hip new music. So grab the gals and hit up Kitty Cohen’s for some fancy throwback cocktails, then head across the street and grab some Japanese street food at Austin staple, East Side King! End the night with a sweet and boozy treat from Prohibition Creamery for pineapple tequila sorbet before seeing your new fav DJ play to a packed house.
SOUTH AUSTIN CHILL
Our South Side Tote pays homage to chill South Austin vibes! We take this baby everywhere!
Austin’s South Side is full of lush green parks, greenbelts, swimming holes, and the ultimate purveyor of “Keep Austin Weird”. You haven’t seen weird until you meet some of the local characters in South Austin. Our gal Ashley lives on the south side along with the neighborhood “Man on Stilts.” Spend your day lounging at Barton Springs, then head on over to your favorite taco truck (Torchy’s, DUH!), and finally spend the evening shopping and dining on SOCO. Want the most out of your “Sunday Funday” in Austin? Grab your besties and hit up South Congress Café for infused Bloody Mary’s, then shop at Uncommon Objects for unique vintage finds, and have a drink at the Continental Club before taking in the best Blues in town!
Cast Your Vote
We think both candidates fit the bill in this year’s election, but where do you stand? Are you on the East Side or South Side?
