On douchebags.

Dear austincommunity,



I'm new to this wonderful city and I'm really enjoying discovering the new sights, sounds and destinations offered therein.  I was in an area to remain unnamed earlier this evening swarming with douchebaggery and it occurred to me: I really like most of the people here, dozens of warm, friendly, generous folks have made my transition great.  But, well, there seem to be a lot of douchebags in certain areas.

So, I thought this might be a good conversation to have in the community.  In your own opinion (and that's why I'm being vague, because I think everyone's definition of douchebag is differentMine is obnoxious college kids playing pool volleyball and throwing half full beer cans): WHAT'S THE DOUCHIEST PLACE IN AUSTIN?

Bonus points if you, like me, are in fact a douchebag (yes, I know about my user icon) and can claim your own favorite hangout.

Regards,
stupidis

You win.

I think the DOUCHIEST place is probably Rick Perry's office. Avoid at all costs.

Just as a point of information: that's an enema bag and hte products shown with it are for cleaning out the poop chute, not the vajj.

Now, if the nozzle on the end of the hose were a fountain-type nozzle, and if the products were different, it would be a douche bag.

As an obnoxious, pseudointellectual douchebag of a college student myself:

- Metro coffee (or whatever it's turned into)
- Spider House, as was mentioned above
- anything within a mile radius of UT, especially if it's on the drag
- Epoch
- any newspaper office
- my apartment
- I Love Video (in the obnoxious pseudointellectual way, of course, which is why I love it so)
- any vintage store anywhere in the city

That's all I can think of at the moment.

My problem with Epoch is that people there won't mind their own business. Not everyone who goes there wants to chat. Some of us want to work.

The people at the I Luv Video on Airport are much nicer than the ones on Guadalupe.

Flying Saucer, Ginger Man, anywhere you have to pay over $5 for a beer. Plus everywhere else in Austin aside from Jack in the Box and Cici's.

Austin in general.

Esp. my former workplace, which I cannot name because this is not a locked post. On that note, most engineering firms.

I quit going out ten years ago because this is such a douchy town. I suppose it's like that everywhere.

Qua on 4th is the ultimate douche bar, what with their sharks and their "no T-shirt" dress code and all. Vicci (went there for some free networking thing) is a close second, but more cougars than sharks.

Bottle service = douchetacular.

I haven't even been there but Qua is certainly douchetastic. Sharks? in the floor? for fucks sake.

the Domain has to be the center of douchedom, its gravity pulling at douchebags citywide.

and leaf, that "yes, I LOVE paying 12$ for a bowl of lettuce" place. pretty much any of the places on that 2nd street area too.

Cool River.

Went there once. I will say that the food was delicious, but the bar was filled with, for want of a better term, plastic people.

That line from Caddyshack "where did you come from, a scotch ad"?

That.
