Hello all... Anyone in the North of Austin area want to get together for lunch or happy hour? Getting together somewhere centrally located to Leander, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Georgetown, Pflugerville or NE/NW Austin. Most folks I know live in South or Central Austin and that's where most gatherings are held. I don't know about you but I'd like to drive less than 25+ miles to hang out with cool folks...
