Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Went to Austin last year for the first time and was underwhelmed by it. Airport was nice, Rainey was cool, 6th ok... but was shocked at how truly small it felt...almost boony just outside downtown. Another positive was the food, which I thought was very good eveywhere I went but “live music capital” ? Nashville wins hands down. Also there’s no stores downtown just restaurants and bars...I think a good mix is nice since most of them close during the day. Austin does not deserve the hype.

Anyway, Amazon is going to DC end of story.
