"These properties rarely go to market, and awaiting your next concept, whether it be a restaurant, bar, hotel or music venue, the options are endless with the CBD zoning," the online listings said.

Woody confirmed to the Austin Business Journal on Thursday that he had purchased the home, but did not mention what he plans to do with it. However, his history suggests the 71 Rainey St. home will be transformed into some type of bar.
