My wife and I are going to this in September. I wish we would've gone last year because the '06 lineup was just a Murderers Row of Awesomeness, in my opinion (click link to see).

The official '07 lineup comes out in May but I've read that Andrew Bird, Kings of Leon, Robert Earl Keen and Ben Kweller are among those who've committed to play this year.

Has anyone on the boards been to this before? If so, any recommendations on places to stay, places to eat & drink, etc.? We're really excited to make this trip.

My cousin is the executive producer of Austin City Limits. I can give you a laundry list of things to do, PM me and I'll query my wife, it's her favorite city.

Off the top of my head, Chueys (Mexican) (I have their shirt on now) Iron Works (barbecue), Magnolia Cafe (for breakfast)

I love Chueys

If you like bbq you should also try The Salt Lick (kind of out of the way though), Stubbs is in downtown Austin it's great bbq and County Line.

For steak The Salt Grass is awesome.

And at least one day you have to get donuts from Round Rock Donuts. The best donuts in the world.

Thought I'd bump this since the official lineup has been released. Some of the better-known names playing: Bob Dylan, Wilco, Killers, White Stripes and Arcade Fire.
