To start off this holiday weekend, some friends and I went to First Thursday! This is a big celebration once a month down on South Congress where all the shops and restaurants stay open late. I’ve been a few times, but it was awesome to hang out with my graduate school friends this time! The pictures are pretty blurry, but they’ll give you an idea of the evening
Dinner — Mighty Cone — Trailer restaurants are very popular in Austin, and Mighty Cone is owned by the same people that own one of the fanciest restaurants in town (Hudson’s on the Bend). All food is served in a paper cone, and was amazing!!
Drumline that marched down South Congress, dancers and all!
I am obsessed with the Austin vendor, Marblies! They create the cutest animals out of marbles!
Craig, Ana and Pedro!!
Awesome band at Gueros — Los Flames. Grammy winners make up half the band, and they played everything from Santana, to Jerry Lee Lewis, to Johnny Cash.
I love AUSTIN, TEXAS!
