Chugga Chugga: Dad’s Day, Cheap Happy Hours & Outdoor Fun

Hello Party TrainWrecks;

This is long. You’ve been forewarned. That said, if you are at home on the couch at any time this weekend, you’re doing something wrong. This week is apparently THE week to plan cool stuff. Before you get there, check this out.

· Trannies Vs. Midgets BBall Game: We need to make this happen in Austin, like, now.

 · How have you made it through your entire life without gold Hammer pants? Hammer don’t hurt ‘em.

 · Remote Control Car Racing: Every Sat at 1 pm, hard core remote control race car peeps gather in front of the Parmer hobby town to race cars around a track the size of a football field. Different heats, different levels, different types of cars. Yes, they have a bandstand. Apparently the cars are so fast they “drift” a la fast and the furious. It costs $10 to enter the race and the winner earns a $12 gift certificate to Hobbytown. Lasts until 5. Who wants to grab a 40 and make fun of some people? – Thanks Drea

 · Free homeslice for a year? He won this contest by keeping his hand on an eggplant sub for longest. Just goes to show what anyone can accomplish. http://www.yearofthepizza.com

 · Ibuylocal.com is having a contest. How local are you? Some cool local prizes for just emailing in a snapshot or a short note.

Putting this one together was exhausting. I need a beer. And I didn’t asterisk anything because I can’t decide what to do. 🙂

Yours in bring on the suds,

Kelly

For Dads:

 Lets face it, theyre the joy of your life, but kids can be a pain in the butt. Liven up every trip to the grocery store with a freaky mouth pacifier. Every time they drop a doozie in a public place, look down at the bubba gump teeth pacifier and everything is somehow ok.

· Dads eat free at Texas De Brazil

· Backwoods Clothing: Buy a fathers day bundle (trail runner dad, casual dad, hiking dad)and get 25% off any womens apparel or footwear. Keep the missus happy.

 · Jello shot lovers: Tired of digging out the last bit of gelatinous goodness? Just twist it out! TwistShot

 Natural Wonders:

 Reviews:

 · Horseshoe Lounge – Its lounge-y and its got a great sign. Other than that, I don’t really get why this place is so popular. Its smoky and the kitsch factor isnt high enough to warrant the slavish devotion it inspires.

 · Aggrolites: Apparently they rock. Text from my friend. “I wish I brought my calorie watch, I’ve burned like 300 in the last 15 minutes”

 · Black sheep lounge: It was a to try and now it’s a must go. Corn dog bites, fried pickle CHIPs, sweet potato fries and FREE BEER.

 · Tonic: All the way out on parmer, they actually have a decent vibe for being in the boonies. Mondays is karaoke rock band. We totally kicked it’s a$$.

 · Finn & Porter: Swanky, fabulous. Of course, I was there for a free event. I can only speak to atmosphere but oooh la la. Don’t forget their salt water swimming pool on the 8th floor.

 · Mister Tramps: didn’t disappoint during the rainstorm F’in awesome. Don’t expect much from the décor. It’s the DEALS you’re there for

 · Pollo Regio: This is like the temple of chicken. 11.99 for a huge delicious meal of juicy ck, beans, rice, grilled onion, tortillas and a green avocado salsa thing that will knock your socks off.

 · RRE Games: take a flask. Beers are $7.

 To Try:

 · Whimsicles: Creamy local creation… described as frozen cheesecake on a stick

 · Dry Creek Café & Boat Dock: head there after your mt. bonnel hike

 · Emeralds: all the best from Ireland. Our one comment was “um… so… potatoes?”

 · Fabi and rosi: Modern European food, where zoot used to be
