Northwest Hills. It gives you proximity to Downtown with the nice enclosed neighborhood feel of a Bee Cave or Lakeway area. It has great schools,, And with just driving across Mopac via Anderson Ln, you're right next to Alamo Drafthouse, The Goodnight, Korea House, Cover 3, The Dojo, and other great...

Does anybody remember the cookie kiosk things in grocery stores where it had a huge variety of cookies (chocolate chip, maple cream, the windmill, etc) and you would use the tongs and help yourself to the ones you wanted?
