Lunch: We had a light lunch of tuna salad with crackers (Ritz and Rosemary and Olive Oil Triscuits).

Dinner: Before watching Ray Wylie Hubbard and Elizabeth Cook perform at the Cactus Cafe, I grabbed a couple gyro pitas from The Pita Pit (2350 Guadalupe St, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 474-7482‎). I took a couple quick pictures while they were finishing the stuffing of my pitas since it would be too dark where we would be eating them.

  • That type of pita looks like it's sliced, then cooked because of the amount of browning on it. As fast-food as it is, I love that type compared to the big log of meat on the spit. I still like the "real" meat, but given the choice: thin, browned strips for me.

  • Yeah, the gyros were presliced. When I ordered, they throw the gyros onto a flattop while they stuffed my pita with veggies of my choice. We liked the sandwich (ate it like a burrito) and will probably eat it again in the future.
