More Texan Slackers from Richard Linklater, and once again the location is the state capital, Austin, along with Georgetown, about 20 miles north on I-35.

‘Robert E Lee High’ is Bedichek Middle School, 6800 Bill Hughes Road in Austin, and the local burger joint is the Top Notch Restaurant, 7525 Burnet Road.

The alfresco party filmed in West Enfield Park, 2008 Enfield Road, beneath the Moontower that the lads attempt to climb, the towering lighting system built for the local power plant. You’ve missed your chance to party here – the tower has now gone.

The ‘Emporium’ club is the Poodle Dog Lounge, 6507 Burnet Road, Allandale, a northern suburb of Austin.
