Train Delay: Free Things, Cheap Food & Fun Stuff

Hi Darlings –

I’m relatively sure that I won’t have time to put together a train this week. Lots of show choir every single day. First Thursdays is this week. Here are some things to entertain you while I’m singing show tunes.

Reminder if you’re coming to the show, buy your tickets in advance on www.rivercitypops.com or volunteer to usher with HiRise@austin.rr.com

for free. Apparently tickets are selling faster this year. I’m sure this is directly attributable to the number of family members that insist on coming to see/embarrass me. If you’re thinking of coming Sunday, that’s when they truck the nursing homes in – apparently our target audience. You think I’m kidding. You’ll also think I’m kidding when I tell you we wrap the microphone packs in a maxi pad and a rubber glove to keep them dry. There are so many jokes there it’s just not fair.

Yours in “I am so f$*!$# tired of ABBA & Bohemian Rhapsody”,
Kelly

· Spike & Mike’s sick and twisted: not as good as past years, according to veterans, but you can drink liquor and be completely appalled by cartoon gruesomeness.
· Kona Grill for Lunch – Really reasonable and delicious. Service was fast and the lunch combo was 8 pieces sushi/salad for 8.95
· Roys Hawaiian Fusion: Didn’t eat there but my friends were. Food looked amazing and they will reserve a side area for you if you have a large party AND add your name to the menu for Happy Birthday (HeatherJ)
