Summer Party Train: Free Toilets, Outside Movies & a Frozen Banana Stand

Choo Choo People!

Good stuff going on this week. Nothing outside of the ordinary really except the ROT rally will be cluttering up downtown. Might take this chance to keep away from the chuggin’ monkey and explore other parts of austin. Yelp.com will set you up with a “by neighborhood” search and explore some of our natural wonders (heading to hamilton pool Sunday) before it gets too darn hot. I’m pretty sure Austin’s the best town to be in during the summer (well, maybe chicago, but still). Look for an evite to a wig crawl soon. Pub Crawl + Wigs = Superhilariousfun.

Here are some very random to-check-outs:

As always, if you have things for the party train blog – great restaurant, fabulously seedy dive, must-see art exhibit — feel free to drop me a line. I’ll probably have to update later this week anyway!

Yours in tan lines and big floppy hats,

Kelly

Fun things to do:

 

Review:

  • · Texas Tubes: The float is only ok (expect to get dumped over) but the last “bus” leaves at 6. The latest I’ve found! Leave work a tad early and get your float on
  • · Mister Tramps: Could use some more wall décor but the bartenders already know my name. And they have 32 oz cocktail pitchers for $5 on Mondays. Enough said.
  • · Pollo Regio: Freaking amazing. You’ll never HEB Rotisserie again. Chicken that falls off the bone, rice, beans, grilled onion, lime and a great creamy avocado spicy sauce. 11.99. DONE.
  • · Black Sheep Lodge: I wasn’t able to go… but my minions were. High praises for the free beer and good grub.
  • · The Hangover: So much better than I expected. Totally hilarious. If you’re offended by extreme male or female nudity, don’t watch the credits 🙂

 

Go Explore:

  • · Bananarchy: Austins first frozen banana stand. Grand Opening Saturday
  • · La casita: Stumbled up on it on anderson. High tech enough to have a website, old fashioned enough to use those clip in letter signs for their menu.
  • · Submerged: what is this place and why am I seeing ads for it everywhere?
  • · Nubian Queen Lolas Soul Food – East Siiiiiiiide. Can someone PLEASE go there?
