Oasis

There is a popular restaurant built in 1982 called Oasis. It sits high above Lake Austin and is an institution as they say and calls itself the “Sunset Capital of Texas”. There are four terraces and in the summer it is packed with happy, sun loving people. I, however, went on a cold, chilly January day and had to sit inside. The menu is exactly the same as the last time I ate there years ago. I’ll have to visit in the Summer. The entrance.. This was outside. I’m sure it’s busy in th...

5 US cities with accessible nature

S tudies from around the world show that nature makes us happier. Spending time immersed in natural landscapes benefits our brains and our bodies. It deepens our sense of connectedness to ourselves and everything else. It even makes us kinder and more creative. But, instinctively, you probably knew that. Take a Greyhound to certain American cities and — without even leaving town — you can find yourself in some unique pockets of nature. Perhaps you’ll uncover an urban park full of rare trees, g...

Best golf tournaments in the US

I am not a golf person. Like most people, I can name Tiger Woods, but no way in hell I can tell you who won the Masters. What I am a fan of is a good party, and even though I can’t name 99 percent of the PGA Tour, I can with complete confidence tell you that good golf tournaments are the best spectator experience in sports. What’s that you say? How could a game that’s about as action-packed as lunch at the senior center be the best sport to attend? Easy. Because the PGA Tour knows it doesn’t ...

Hot rod Stovebolts and other Chevrolet six-cylinder memories

The venerable Chevrolet “stovebolt” six-cylinder engine first showed up in 1929. Photo by Jeff Koch. [Editor’s Note: Another Jim Van Orden story for this week, regaling us with his encounters with Chevrolet’s various straight-six engines.] It was the ultimate “sleeper.” No one suspected the car was fast. Only 17 and feeling my oats, I drove the old Chevy like a maniac and enjoyed surprising V-8 drivers at stoplights. Shifting into first and revving the 235-cubic-inch, 135-horsepower “stovebolt”...

To my European comrades : 5 reasons why you should consider Austin to start with the American Dream

When I landed in Central Texas 11 months ago, I was far from expecting what I experienced in Austin so far. On a cold morning of March 2017, I recall my pap’ driving me to Charles de Gaulle airport in France and us talking about catching horses with a lasso, ending each discussion there with a western inspired punchline and then a look at the desert around me.We still can reminisce of these fantasized times in some cultural and physical manifestations, such as Fort Alamo or San Antonio’s rodeos...
