The 20 People You Meet In Downtown Austin (as told by Leonardo DiCaprio)
Unless you have been living under a rock, you are aware that Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar for his well-deserved performance in “The Revenant”. Fan and audiences alike pined for Leo at this year’s Academy Awards because of his lack of Oscars in the past. Leo has proved time and time again that he is an incredible actor from his first role in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” where he played a young boy with learning disabilities, to “Titanic” where he stole all of our hearts, to most recently “The Wolf of Wall Street” where Leo was just not good enough to beat out one of the greatest talents on planet Earth and a symbol for us Austinites — Matthew McConaughey.
Much like Leonardo’s repertoire, there are also a lot of characters we meet on a day to day basis when on 6th street. The good, the bad, and the ugly, here is an homage to Leo’s lifetime achievement of winning the most prestigious award in the film industry by showing all the people you will meet downtown.
#1 The Dancer
The one who you cannot bring around if there is the slightest bit of a chance that Beyonce will come on because they will lose all control and create a dance circle around them.
#2 The Flirt
The one who cannot seem to speak to anyone the entire night without making it blatantly obvious they are sexually attracted to them — you will definitely catch them lingering with the bouncer because they can’t help themselves.
#3 The Crier
The one who has too many emotions trapped inside of them that the slightest drop of alcohol makes it all boil to the surface.
#4 The Talker
The one who is having such an amazing time and feels so connected with everyone they talk to that they can’t seem to shut up — they also will not get social cues that you’re over hearing what they have to say so you have to tell them.
#5 The Creepy Old Guy
The one who probably has a few kids and a family but is trying their hardest not to give into adulthood and attempts to use their adult paychecks to buy college kids drinks.
#6 The Sleeper
The one who has too many shots to keep them awake, but they try their farthest to fight against the fatigue to continue partying.
#7 The Fighter
The one who seems to get upset about everything and is constantly looking for an excuse to fight whoever they come in contact with to establish their masculinity.
