What is your favorite BBQ restaurant?
"The Salt Lick because they have a family style all-you-can-eat and it is a great atmosphere."
What is the best music event you have attended?
"It would have to be the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill concert at the Frank Erwin Center that I went to my senior year in high school."
Lake Travis or Town Lake?
"Lake Travis offers a variety of activities, but I find myself at Town Lake more often because it is a little more convenient since it is closer to where I live. Plus, I like the food options there, such as Hula Hut."
Have you ever been on the Dillo?
"I used to catch the Dillo to go different places in high school because we lived in the downtown area and the routes ran right by our house."
What is your all-time favorite restaurant?
"Well, it depends on what I am in the mood for. But, I really like Fonda San Miguel, which is a nice Mexican restaurant that I used to go to a lot when I was a kid."
When did you see the Congress Street bats for the first time?
"I remember going when I was in about fifth grade with a few friends of mine. Our parents took us to eat at Sonic before we went to see the bats. It was a cool experience when I was younger."
Barton Creek or Highland Mall?
"Definitely Barton Creek Mall. The stores there are a lot better than they are at Highland, plus I prefer to drive on Mopac as opposed to I-35."
Have you ever done a 5K Fun Run?
"No, but I used to run the Capitol 10,000 every year. It is a tradition in my family. We would all do the run and then we would have a neighborhood party afterwards. I haven't ran since my freshman or sophomore year in high school because I would play soccer games on Sundays, which is the same day of the run. But, my family still runs in the Capitol 10,000. Actually, my dad finished seventh in his age group last year."
Have you ever been to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and IMAX Theatre?
"I have actually never been to the history museum, but I hear that it is very cool. I really want to go and check it out some day."
What is your favorite ice cream shop?
"My favorite place for ice cream has to be Amy's Ice Cream, hands down. A lot of people like Cold Stone Creamery now, but I still think that Amy's has better ice cream. The strawberries are fresh at Amy's but frozen at Cold Stone. Every time I go to Amy's, I get the sweet cream with strawberries."
Which movie theater do you prefer?
"Right now, I am partial to Westgate 11 because it has a student discount. Since movies are getting expensive, I am taking advantage of the discounts while I can."
