WHITE HOT THE BEST OF THE BLANCO STREET BLOCKS, FROM OYSTERS TO GRAFFITI. BY HANNAH MORROW 104  AUSTINWAY.COM PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF CLARK'S OYSTER BAR (CLARK'S); LEAH MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY (RUSSELL COLLECTION); MADDY HILL (SIGN, HOPE OUTDOOR GALLERY) When parking is a fruitless gamble and traffic jams occur like clockwork, the key to a stress-free Austin day is sticking to one neighborhood. Take Clarksville, the neighborhood south of Enfield Drive that fills the gap between Lamar to MoPac. Historic, walkable, and quaintly upscale, Clarksville has enough eats and treats to occupy your time. Blanco Street is Clarksville's Fifth Avenue, a focal point of the area and home to neighbor- hood highlights. Where the action is: a sharp right off West Sixth Street. What you're wearing: The Weekender line of athleisure cult phenomenon Outdoor Voices (606 Blanco St., 512-256-9136; outdoor ). What you're tossing back: a shuck- load of oysters and a Blanco Mule from Clark's Oyster Bar (1200 W. Sixth St., 512-297-2525; What you're perusing: Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery (1137 W. Sixth St., 512-478-4440; and its permanent collection, including original works from Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse. When you just can't choose: Ask for one of everything at Café Josie (1200 W. Sixth St., Ste. B, 512-322-9226; during "The Experience," the unlimited chef's tasting menu. What you're Instagram-ing: an abandoned construc- tion site-turned-large-scale art project, the Hope Outdoor Gallery (11th and Baylor streets, is a graffiti masterpiece and an Austin sacred site. . clockwise from top left: Clark's Oyster Bar; the Blanco Street sign; Outdoor Voices; the Russell Collection Fine Art Gallery; the Hope Outdoor Gallery graffiti wall under the former Texas Military Institute castle.
