Hey Musk, Don't count out San Antonio. You get a lot of bang for the buck in terms of housing, /quality of life. We do have nice cultural amenities as well. Austin does have more musical venues as you might have guessed. San Antonio tops Austin for art....in a BIG way!
Yes Arwen, Manu is a HUGE! Everyone here walks around with a Ginobili or a Spurs shirt on. Of all the sports, basketball is one I enjoy watching/playing. I'm not a football(American football that is) fan. I prefer badminton since it you can play it indoors year round. Too hot for tennis!
