I'm at Halcyon, sitting on a funky couch this Sunday afternoon. Across from me are two girls who could be sisters. Both are reading gilt-edged books (Bibles?), both are very alternaretrochic, and both are marking their copies of the good book as they study. Halcyon serves both alcohol and caffeine, so perhaps this venue offers dual opportunities to save souls. Both girls have ankle tatts. One is in a camouflage hoodie, and the other in a Kelly green retro-cardigan, barefoot. The one drink between them, a crimson iced something, sits full, untouched, sweating.
The interior is dark dark dark, but the windows are blown bright, which gives one's pupils a workout. My hangover is almost gone, soothed away by a phat chocolate brownie and a double Americano. It is Sunday in Austin, Texas.
