Austin Party Train: Free Events, Cheap Deals and Go Irish!

Why hello darlings. 

I know its Thursday and you’ve been tragically lost without the party train but i’ve been busy watching baseball games and getting caught in the rain. Sadly, no pina colodas however this week has so much variety you’ll forget the past three days’ doldrums. 

Here it goes: soul, funk, 80s, texas country, free steak, free vodka, free movies, cajun restaurants and zydeco, free waffles and a corporate bullshit tester, trivia online and simpsons trivia sunday, free day of dance and stellar upcoming events. No reviews… haven’t had time to yelp but they’ll be included in the next one. 

So… its the end of a short week. Why dont you use the below to waste some time/have some laughs/win friends and influence people?

Yours in I totally can’t wait for my party train business cards and i know its ridiculous,
