Partying is pretty much part of the curriculum at the University of Texas at Austin. Longhorns come in with prerequisites in pre-gaming and leave with top honors in tailgating — and perhaps a minor in Austin nightlife.
The iconic magazine pays homage to party staples like South By Southwest and Dirty Sixth, but this year a new neighborhood gets a nod. "While Sixth Street is still the standby for the young and rowdy, Rainey Street is the go-to for upperclassmen. You'll find UT's finest along a row of historic homes now converted into the city's coolest bars and cocktail lounges," says Playboy, confirming our suspicion that Rainey Street has become a mecca for burnt-orange bros and sorority sisters.
Playboy also reminds us that toplessness is legal in our city, perhaps providing us with a new motto: "Austin: the right to bear arms and the right to bare it all."
