On Jimmy Kimmel’s final broadcast from Austin’s Long Center, the late night host turned barbeque addict listed the nine things he learned from his time in the ATX.
1 – Austinites are some of the kindest most welcoming people on the planet (unless your name is Rick Perry).
2 – Pickles are served with ribs so that you feel like you have eaten something green.
3 – If you follow a man with a beard, he will lead you to a panel discussion on increasing your social media presence.
4 – Tacos are the real breakfast of champions.
5 – Matthew McConaughey has a brother named Rooster.
6 – The best haircuts come with a can of Lone Star Beer.
7 – The key to the city doesn’t actually unlock anything.
8 – A pedicab is not a cab you can get a pedicure in.
9 – if you say “Hook ’em Horns,” people will scream very very very loudly.
I must say, as someone who doesn’t usually watch Kimmel (Jimmy Fallon is my soulmate), I thoroughly enjoyed the shows and this other Jimmy has found a new fan in me.
I also enjoyed crossing paths with some colorful characters featured on the show throughout the week
I’d love to say more, but unfortunately we’re out of time.
