It's time for the 5th Annual Fall Texas Get Together!!

This year it will be in Austin, and we're going to spend some time at the Pecan Street Festival. http://www.oldpecanstreetfestival.com/

I'm sure there will be some meals planned as well, but specifics still need to be worked out. I'll update this thread as we go, and send out PMs with details.

This is what I have from the now-closed thread:

For Sures:

Let me know if there are any changes. If you want to be included but don't want to post on the thread, that's okay. Just PM me so I'll know to include you when I send out details.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

jjct has proposed we do a bit of a fundraiser. It would involve him in man-tights, but he needs some accomplices. I'm not sure exactly what he has in mind, but you will need to come up with a costume. Something from the same time period as man-tights. Oh, and if you can do a good, phony British accent, that might be helpful, too.

There would be a video made, of course, but only those who donate to the great cause of SI would be given access to the video. PM jjct if you want to know more.

Need only one accomplice, and said volunteer will be wearing a dress - a somewhat voluminous dress, appropriate to the 1600's. Nothing embarrassing there, in fact, the 'reading' is already written, & you'll be the star & get the laughs.
I get the "laughed ats".
PM me if interested.

Waited too long to book airfare....

Keep looking at the travel sites. They keep changing the prices right up to a couple days before.

In general, I recommend buying from the airline's website direct, because they know where you bought your ticket and sometimes treat you better. But when it gets closer to the travel dates, places like priceline would rather sell the ticket at a break-even price then let the plane go with an empty seat.


Take care of yourself. There's a great future out there. It won't come to you; you have to go to it.

Thanks for bumping this up, jj.

I've already requested, and been approved, to take the Friday off. So we will be heading to Austin either Thursday night, or Friday morning, depending on SO's travel schedule and which airport I'm picking him up from.

In either case, we should be in Austin for lunch on Friday, if anyone else will be available. If not, we'll see everyone at the dinner (which has yet to be planned but will happen) Friday night.

If any of the locals have any suggestions, please PM me. I know there's a lot of really cool places to go in Austin, I just don't know what and where they are.

So Pecan Street Festival is downtown. SoCo (South Congress) is a great place to wander around at to eat or drink, see neat little stores, experience Austin and it is just south of downtown.

There's also the warehouse district - 4th Street/Lavaca - restaurants and bars there as well as food trailers.

We could also hit Zilker Park to kayak or stand up paddle if anyone was into that. (Also near downtown) But it does require time for the activity and to clean up after, lol.

Honestly there are many options. I wasn't sure if we'd want to stick to a general area of town or not, depending on where people are staying. We can play it by ear as well.

Pecan Street Festival is a lot of fun - I saw Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell wandering around last time I went a few years ago, lol. Everything from fried shrimp skewers to art to sausage wraps to metal art to anything associated to our mantra - Keep Austin Weird. It's just fun. Can't wait!!!

SO made his flight reservation which puts him into the other side of Houston in the evening on Thursday, so we won't be driving to Austin until Friday. But we still should be there in time for lunch.

I'm way behind on hotel planning, btw, and I apologize for that. It doesn't look like there will be enough people from out of town to get a discount rate anywhere, though. But I will PM people as soon as I figure out where we're staying.

My BF and I just bought tickets to see Blue October downtown that Friday night and are planning on staying downtown that night to be at the Pecan Street Festival on Saturday.

For those that I met at the Woodlands (Houston) g2g, this is the same BF that attended with me and then I broke up with in early May. We've recently had a talk and decided to see each other again. It's only been a couple of weeks, but going well so far.

On the same day, @ a mile east of the Pecan St. Festival is the Texas Craft Brewers Festival...
So if we walk from west to east, we'd arrive in perfect shape to attend:

The beer festival sounds like a fun time, though we don't usually do too much drinking at the TX g2gs...perhaps they sell rootbeer as well?

Okay, turns out I've got a busy day tomorrow, and good thing I already took the day as a vacation day.

SO and I will make it over to Austin in time for dinner, not lunch. I've got a job interview in the morning, before we can head out.

If I don't get another PM sent out, if I have your phone number I will text any activity info/updates. I included my cell number on the PMs so feel free to text me as well. Or PM me here if you're more comfortable with that. I will be checking all that. I just don't know if I'll have the time to send out multiple PMs.

Same goes with any last minute attendees. If you suddenly can make it to Austin on Saturday and need to find the group, send me a PM. I'm set up to get a text notification so I'll know I have a PM here.

See y'all this weekend!

Pictures? Well...
If my mind could take pictures
to give to all I know,
I'd print the early morningsongs of new day dawning's show.
Before a bird's eye opens
before their song is heard,
a magical silence is singing outside,
for that,
I can't find a word...
but
a black and white for tentacles
clutching icily to the trees,
or a color print for the brilliant sunrise which exists I'm sure,
only to please...

I'll probably go to a nuthouse
for ranting and raving 'fore dawn,
or
keep clicking along,
singing my song,
laughing wildly on somebody's lawn...

Pictures - those incriminating incriminators! will be along soon...
(wish you were here!)

Casa Maria is where I get my carne asada fix when I'm in town.

We're dropping the kids off with FIL right now and then we'll be making our way down there. I expect to hit the Pecan Street area sometime between 11:30 and noon. wounded and inconnou both have my cell if there's an update I need to know about, otherwise I'll text when we park and hike in.

First time in three weeks I've put on makeup, people. THIS IS ALL CRAZY.

Oh, boy, y'all...we had a bunch of fun today. (And maybe just a few beers.) We walked the Pecan Festival and had lunch on 6th Street. Afterward, we decided to walk a few blocks to a pub. Halfway there we got caught in a huge downpour. I swear I was looking for the funnel cloud!

We finally arrived at the pub soaked to the bone, looking like some sort of rejects from a really bad wet T-shirt contest. It was seriously a lot of rain. Despite being wet, we had a great time sampling beers at the pub.

We ended our night at a funky hot dog place where they were having an 80s music night. We sang along to Depeche Mode and The Cure. OK...only some of us sang along.

We had so much fun that we're fixin' to meet up again in the morning for some breakfast.

Wow, it was so much fun and I feel so lucky to have met such truly wonderful people! I look forward to seeing everybody again in the near future, thanks for coming to Austin! Sorry about the rain, but we need it so bad here, it truly was a blessing. See y'all again soon.

Wine-cicle?

Yes. Sangria. Must be 21 to buy. They had at least one other flavor, too.

At picture time, she was asked, I kid you not, "Hold up your awesome deliciousness."

At breakfast, after placing a plate of french toast ala mode in front of Inconnu, the waiter innocently asked "Do want some butter for that?"

If you thought that would be the funniest breakfast moment, you would be wrong.

I observed the expression as WB2 took her first bite of pumpkin french toast and migas. Apparently, it was amazing.

A few seconds later, JJCT asked how it was, but her mouth was full, so I answered "She's going to need a cigarette after that."

He fell over laughing.

Did I mention the food was really good?


Take care of yourself. There's a great future out there. It won't come to you; you have to go to it.

"Do want some butter for that?" Started it.
I lost it right there. It looked like the biggest butter dollop I have ever seen!
I was just composing myself when TH said the cigarette thing. It was really over then...

my stomach hurts!

Didn't make it to the Texas Craft Brewer's Festival, but we ended up having a few choices at The Ginger Man

I learned I like Pecan Porter.

Just arrived back home y'all. I am so tired. What a great time and great bunch of people. I missed the large crowd that the TX g2gs often attract, but the beauty of this smaller group were the times we gathered together sharing, laughing, catching up. (OK, there may have also been some eating and drinking!)

I still have to upload my pics off my big camera, but here are a few from my cell phone.


The to-die-for breakfast of Pumpkin Bread French Toast and Migas from Kerbey Lane.


Ahi Ceviche from the Iron Cactus.


Big Bark and Elda M. - both were delicious.

In case y'all were wondering...I did actually do something other than eat and drink:


Took a tour of the beautiful Capitol bldg and this interesting effect greeted us as we exited the bldg.

Awesome pics, I'm so glad you all had a great time!!

I have to say, jjct's picture almost brought me to tears, though. All of those wonderful taps, next to taps, on top of taps, at The Ginger Man. So many quality brews, so little time!

I'm pretty sure that one was 512 Brewing Company's Pecan Porter. Yes?

We had some really amazing Texas beers.

Yes, 512 Ama, w2 has the right of it! Which means of course you'll have to come down here to get you some...
Though why they didn't name their brewery 4 2 oh I'll never know
Great pic w2! That's the 'goddess of liberty' haloed right there, though I'm not much into goddesses...it stands taller than the washington one, we 'heard' it's the only one to do so...it's Texas doncha know, everything's bigger and all...
Losfer - don't cry my bother!

G2g's are open to all members. There is no tour schedule, but the folks in TX tend to do a couple a year. Past locations have been in Houston, Austin, and Dallas/Ft. Worth.

Just watch f&g forum for future g2g announcements

The next Texas g2g should be in March, around St Patrick's Day, in the Houston area. Rumor has it there may be some birthday celebrating going on at the g2g, too.
