Austin Party Train: Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough

Welcome back from your fourth of July vaca (or stayca). Can you believe it’s almost the middle of july? At this point in my life I was supposed to be independently wealthy and married to josh lucas. But dreams die hard. Blogging at a certain technology company is just as inspiring… But I digress.

On the ride back from SPI, we discovered some fun websites:

· Summer adventure: the texas bbq trail,, do the ‘cue! All the places you should go to eat our delicious national dish

· Where to find happy hours: Austin360 Happy Hours. Because we all need more of those…

· Free numerology: Figure out your life path and destiny… mine is total crap but maybe it will work out for you

· : Austin music database


There are tons of free/cheap things available this week — free concerts, movies, mojitos, ice cream, parties and cheap deals below.
