Austin Party Train: Big Lebowski, BeatleJuice & the Blues

Hi Party Trainers!

Early train this week. Trying to avoid work. Hope all of you ACLers had fun and the non ACLers enjoyed laughing at those fools rolling around in the mud.  I am so damn sore from trudging all over hither and yon. Maybe someone could’ve mentioned I should take Monday off?

Here’s a pop quiz… can you guess what didnt happen this weekend?

  1. The fanny pack made a resurgence
  2. I had treated sewage on my face courtesy of the city of Austin
  3. I strapped four flasks to my body in order to avoid spending $$ on overpriced beers, three days in a row

Ha. Trick question. All of them happened. Especially the most disturbing, fanny pack sightings a la 1985. This week there is no cause for boredom. Free fun stuff every day, decent music abounding and of course, you’re all coming to cheer us on at kickball on Thursday.  As for you, get ready for Flamenco, Free Pizza & Funk Fest, Beatlejuice, the Blues, Beastie boys & black dresses, Darksyde, Dance Parties and Evil Dead, Black Lips & Big Lebowski, Snow Patrol & Soulphonics, Birds Barbershop & Bruce Robison, Flame Trick Subs and Street Salsa. But first, enjoy:

Enjoy the gorgeous weather! (Update: The gorgeous RAIN). I’m planning a camping trip soon… maybe this one will actually happen. I have a hankering for the great outdoors that can only be satisfied by a sleeping in a tent and the smell of campfire.

Yours in early to bed and late to rise,
