Austin Party Train: Togas, Trucks & Pecan Street Festival

It’s the Thursday train again.  I was at a wedding this weekend and in Houston this week so I’m a little slow. Turns out thats ok because this would have been the longest party train EVER.  There are so many fab things to do. Wrap your noodle around this: Neimen’s party with Chanel goodie bags, Tribeza Fashion Party, Ra Ra Riot, Burlesque for Peace, Monster Truck Rally, Toga Party, Free Museums, Strange Brew, Office Space Quote Along, Flamenco Fiesta, Pecan Street Festival, Barktoberfest, Texas Cuban Opening, and least, but not last, GWAR, of empire records fame.

First, Friday the day to waste time and avoid your boss. Here i lay before you a smorgasbord of time wasters:

Another thing to note is my friends are awesome:

Hope everyone has a totally kicka$$ weekend. I usually tweet out updates on my regular twitter acct… but i’ve decided thats bad so look for a party train twitter account soon.  I’ll also send a list of those twitter accts that do the coolest Austin tweets. @CoolinAustin is definitely one to follow. As always, if there’s something i missed or that needs to be added, let me know!

Yours in walking distance to Dallas Nite Club,
