Hey Beer Kid and Beer Scout,

You guys been as great as the Packers! What great wins over the cowgirls n da' bears!!! WOOOOOOOHHOOOO!

Been on travel to Austin, TX the last few weeks... Found this sports bar, Billy's, and filed this "On Assignment Report" for Packer Palace Nation! I think I'm going back for a couple weeks in January. If so, I'll be there for the playoff game!

Hope the following and pics are OK to post!

    On Assignment - "Billy's on Burnet", Austin, Texas

    While on business travel last week in Austin, Texas, I checked the Packers website to find a place where I could watch the Packers beat the Bears:  http://www.packers.com/fan_zone/where_to_watch_listing/

    First on the list, was "Billy's on Burnet". A sports bar on Burnet street, in the heart of the Texas state capital. After doing a quick web check, I found it had some very positive reviews from Packers Fans. So, hungry and thirsty, I headed down at high noon on Sunday. The outside of Billy's was a sea of Green and Gold. All right - just like home!

    Inside of Billy's was "packed" with Packers Fan, and one Bear Fan. There was every kinda beer you could think of either on tap, in a bottle, or canned. (Yes, BK they do have Chimay!) The food was awesome. I had a "Billy Burger, with chili cheese fries" (I assumed it was WI Cheese). It was great.

    Met three first timers at Billy's. They found Billy's the same way. One was a young man recently out of the service, Chris, from Fond du Lac, WI. He's done tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thank you for your service Chris! The Austin Packer Fans are just like all other great Packer Fans, knowledgeable, respectful, and loved to Tailgate!

    I even got to meet Billy - The Man. He's owned this fine establishment for the last 5 years. Keep it up Billy - You're doin' an awesome job supporting the Green Bay Packers! See ya soon!!!

Go Pack, Go!
