I met a real Jackalope…

Jackalope 7

No visit to the Jackalope is complete without this. What an awesome photo opp!

In 2012 I wrote a short story, “The Thing Inside,” for an anthology called Unnnatural Tales of the Jackalope, edited by John Palisano.

Aside from the fact that I’ve always been fascinated with Jackalopes (if you don’t know what that is, click here), “The Thing Inside” remains one of my favorite pieces—it was heavily influenced by my first-ever visit to Austin in the summer of 2011.

I’ve been back to Ausin a few times since then (my sister lives there), and since this trip was long (two weeks), we had plenty of time to do some things we haven’t before. One of them was visiting a hole in the wall on Sixth called THE JACKALOPE, which was voted 4th best on the street by Thrillist. and whose Chipotle Bacon Cheeseburger was featured on the Food Network’s Best. Burger. Ever.

A neat little place to hang out—here’s a couple of pix from our visit. Better yet, plan a visit for yourself and check it out at  http://www.jackalopebar.com/. If you can’t get there soon, watch the video to get a feel for the joint!
