Where to get your groceries, beer & wine:
All links include directions from Casa SoCo
HEB is walking distance and will have everything you need, including beer and wine. There is quite a large fresh produce section, plenty of organic choices along with the HEB brand items. 2400 S Congress Ave Open 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. (3 minute drive, 15 minute walk)
For better wine selection, my favorite is the Austin Wine Merchant on W. 6th, parking is available. (10 minute drive)
Whole Foods Flagship store is just after the Austin Wine Merchant. There is a parking lot, 525 N. Lamar (12 minute drive)
For the most amazing beer selection, head to the WhipIn. Top tip: they often have a dj on the patio in the evning and the Indian food (small menu, changes daily) is really, really good. Very good wine selection as well. Little bar inside also.
