Austin Party Train: Free Beer, Elvis and Rowing Fun

Why hello friends –

The early bird is blogging away. This weekend was a little crazy but I sat down with a nice bottle of wine last night and put this together. I’ll add more amazing stuff as the week wears on — Enjoy the rest of your week!

· RunPee tells you when the breaks in the action are in movies so you can run, pee and not miss the movie:

· Who is this guy? Man laying on bull on wall street

· Always wanted to write? New Austin Webpaper allows YOU to contribute: http://www.austinpost.org/become-a-writer

· Hilarious commentary on naked coed Austin Yoga: http://austinist.com/2009/07/29/hello_my_name_is.php

· New Mag, Check it: http://www.austintatiousmag.com/

· Great Recipe: Cowboy’ Burger
1 lb ground beef
1 seeded jalapeno (pointy bottom = spicy, rounded bottom = less spicy)
4-6 slices of center cut bacon
3/4 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Pulse bacon and jalapeno in food processor until jalapeno is chopped finely (or alternatively, chop both very fine) . Mix everything together in a bowl. Form 4 patties and grill to your liking!

Yours in was Bruno an awful movie or what?

Reviews: I’ve finally posted all my yelp reviews for the past couple of months:

· Chuy Bakery : All kinds of bread and gelato and sandwiches

· Scoot Inn: I used to be a loyal devotee… they were kind of annoying about the kickball party

· Teji: Fabulous Indian Food in Round Rock

· Interstate Lanes: 8.50 for a game, lunch and shoes? Done.

· Five Guys Burgers and Fries: Basic, cheapish, toppings are FREE

· La Cocina de Consuelo: Amazing Mexican breakfast

· Cru: Stepped up last minute. 40% off takeout bottles!!

· Cover 3: Voted one of the best burgers in texas… i find it hard to disagree

· The Dog & Duck Pub: Underwhelmed as usual

· Titaya’s Thai Cuisine: Overwhelmed as usual

· Redline Hookah: If you like the hookah, this is your place

· Fogo de Chao: Meat. Lots. Too expensive though. Get a half price certificate at halfoffaustin.com and go for lunch
