Austin is generally a pretty cheerful place, with plenty of sunshine, friendly people, and fun—so much fun, in fact, that (anecdote alert) actress Drew Barrymore, who hung out and filmed here in the 1990 and 2000s, once said the people are so fun that “if you’re having a bad time, they don’t want to know about it.”
That might not be an exact quote. Nevertheless, the Eeyores among us will recognize the sentiment.
