Austin Party Train: Frontera Fest, Fashion Swaps and Free Dance

My magic 8 ball predicts you guys will be super busy this week!  Everything from the artsy fartsy 17th Annual Frontera Fest & Taste of Austin, to a totally cool modern homes tour and the spring home and garden show, sublime cover band BadFish, african drum workshop, champagne and cupcakes, free day of dance around town, fashion swaps, laser dance party, free bagels, free whatasize, whiskey tango tall boys, Seth Walker, Stoney Larue, BettySoo, etc.  

I am doubting there will be a party train next week as I am travelling but we can always hope that between happy hours I’ll be able to send one.  Remember I am now AusPartyTrain on Twitter!

Yours in sticking to my guns,
