Some friends and I decided to try out some of the wine bars in Austin on Sunday. There are a few wine bars near each other in downtown Austin, so it made it easy to park in the middle, and walk to the different establishments. We went into this with an open mind, because we didn't really know what to expect. Okay, well that isn't entirely true.. we knew we would be drinking wine, we knew we would be laughing our asses off, we knew we would have a good time. And we did all of those.
Our first stop was Cork and Co on Congress (http://www.corkandco.com/). The bar is a decent size with two soft type seating areas at the front of the store near the windows facing Congress. The bartender was helpful with our wine selections based on what we liked. They have a good selection of $5 glasses all day on Sunday.

Over all, we liked 3 out of 4 bars that we went to, and we want to head back in the near future! If the boys are lucky, we'll invite them :o) I have added my 2 cents below on the bars that we visited yesterday.
Cork and Co:
Good window seating
$5 glasses all day Sunday (about 20 different wines to choose from)
Fantastic Sunday deal with the cheese and wine flight's... the selection changes weekly
Looked like they had a good menu
Nice and open feel in the restaurant
Has a interesting set up where you can get tasting of wines, but they start around $2 and go up to $8... for a tasting
Out door seating
Most expensive and not sure it is worth it
$6 Sangria Sundays... I'm in love with the Pear Mint
I'll be back to check out their other wine
