Get the Free Legal Technology Buyer’s Guide

Timing is everything, right? The old adage holds true when thinking about upgrading technology.

Maybe you’ve been on legacy software for years.

Maybe you work entirely on paper.

Perhaps you’re still dipping a fountain pen into an inkwell (by the way, if that’s the case – cool).

Wherever you’re at, how do you know when it’s time to start evaluating new technology? Is there ever a bad time? And why do you need to make a change anyway?

If you’re new to this process, attempting to navigate the sometimes confusing legal tech landscape can be daunting, but you don’t have to go at it alone! This guide will give you perspective to separate the essential from the extraneous.

    Things to Do While You’re in Austin

    🍻 Down a Drink (or 3)

    Garage- Downtown
    Austin’s top speakeasy takes the hidden bar theme to a whole new level—that is, to the lower level of a real-life car park. While finding the spot is an experience within itself (hint: look for the teal and yellow neon sign), those who appreciate the fine craft of cocktail-making will discover libation gold.

    Cheer Up Charlie’s- Financial District
    After a long quarantine absence, one of Austin’s most beloved places to drink and play is back in action, bringing as much optimism and joy as its name implies.

    P6 at The LINE Austin- Downtown
    There’s a breezy feeling you get as soon as you walk off the elevator and into the LINE Austin’s sixth-floor cocktail lounge. Maybe it’s due to the windswept pink banners decorating the ceiling, couches you can sink into comfortably, or the unbeatable views of the Colorado River.

    Yellow Jacket Social Club- East Fifth Street
    Need somewhere to bring friends? Yellow Jacket is the perfect place for these activities and so much more.

    Armadillo Den- Ford Oaks
    If your main complaint about the average bar is that there’s just never enough room, drop everything, grab your cornhole gear, and head to Armadillo Den.

    Zanzibar- Downtown
    You would not be wrong to feel like you’ve stepped into a tropical version of a mid-century Rat Pack haunt when you emerge onto this colorful rooftop bar.

    Easy Tiger Linc- Highland
    For those looking to recreate the Biergarten experience of Oktoberfest in Munich, nothing beats an evening out at Easy Tiger.

    🍴 Grab Some Grub

    Barley Swine- $$
    Hyper-local ingredients help steer the changing menu here. Cheer Up Charlie’s- Financial District

    Clark’s Oyster Bar- $$
    This restaurant, especially the patio, hums day and night. You can come up with plenty of reasons to stop

    Franklin’s Barbecue- $$
    A standout star within Austin’s heavyweight barbecue scene, Franklin draws lines that are as epic as its world-renowned brisket.

    Guero’s Taco Bar- $$
    Families have come to this Tex-Mex institution for years and locals happily wait more than two hours for a table on weekend nights, hitting the serve-yourself salsa bar and passing time over margaritas.

    Justine’s Brasserie- $$
    The vibe at this brasserie is dark and romantic, and it gets louder as the night grows longer. Well-known for its late-night dinner service—the kitchen closes at 1:30 a.m.—Justine’s serves up French classics, at your table and at the bar.

    Kemuri Tatsu-ya- $$
    This Texas-smokehouse-as-izakaya is unlike anything else in Austin.

    🤠 See Some Sites

    Congress Avenue Bridge
    Crowds gather nightly on the Congress Avenue Bridge, at sunset, to watch Austin’s urban bat colony fly out from their home on the underside of the bridge over Lady Bird Lake.

    Rainey Street
    At first glance, Rainey Street looks like a sleepy suburban avenue with quiet wooden verandas and picket fences, but at night, it really wakes up. Here, the craftsman-era bungalow homes, many dating back to the late 19th Century, have been renovated into a string of hipster-friendly bars and restaurants.

    Barton Springs Municipal Pool
    This massive public swimming pool, fed by a natural spring, is one of Austin’s most prized outdoor settings. It’s set within well-kept Zilker Park, which has lots of shade and lawns for sunbathing, and remains blissfully undisturbed by the city’s whiplash growth.

    Blanton Museum of Art
    This museum at The University of Texas has a compact collection that does an excellent job covering numerous genres.

    The White Horse
    This is perhaps the coolest honky-tonk in Austin. The simple space puts newcomers at ease, while regulars take to the dance floor when live music is playing every night on a very small stage. A photo booth, pool tables, and a small yard with seating allow for breathers between sets.

    Kayaking and Paddleboarding on Lady Bird Lake
    Crowds flock to Lady Bird Lake all year to kayak and paddleboard on the Colorado River. Multiple companies, like Rowing Dock and Texas Rowing Center, have kayaks and paddleboards for rent, and the area is dog-friendly.

    The Contemporary Austin
    The Contemporary is composed of two different venues: The Jones Center, a striking building on a busy downtown street corner, and Laguna Gloria, a 14-acre outdoor site on Lake Austin that houses a sculpture park and 14th-century Italianate-style villa.

    Uncommon Objects
    Completely and utterly idiosyncratic, this is the hippest flea market you will ever visit. Picture a sprawling emporium full of fascinating items you could easily spend hours poring over.
