Austin Party Train: Chocolate Festival, Paddle Lessons & Museum Day

Poor Thursday… it always gets overlooked for Friday. So I’ll make this redheaded step child of a day special with a party train.  I also got my party train business cards. I am so excited. I know, its lame. I am out of town this weekend so no asterisks but some of the cool call outs are: total recall master pancake, lots of crafty parties with booze, austin chocolate festival, and a back to the future screening with the delorean club (what?). We live in a weird weird town ladies and gents. Here are some other fun/weird things:

As always, if you have something great, send it on. Of course, you get your name in lights on the blog 🙂 win/win. 

Yours in vacation, finally.
