We had dinner at a tex-mex restaurant called..... (insert I have no idea here) but it sure was delicious! The best way to avoid the 45 minute wait, grab the tiny table in the bar area available. It is more fun to sit in the bar area anyway!
Sorry about the picture quality, you know how those iPhones just take incredible low light images...... not. After dinner we headed to a bar called The Ranch. I ordered a Miller Light and he said,
"Is green Miller Light ok? We slightly over estimated St. Patty's day."
And I said, "I don't know, is Monopoly Money ok? I slightly over estimated how much money I would make on my boardwalk property."
We then went to another bar (insert name here that I don't know) and sat on the patio and I gave high fives to everyone who walked by. It was very, very fun for me. If you've never done this, give it a try. Talk about a thrill....
The next morning, we woke up feeling better than expected (at least that was my outlook on the morning) and promptly headed for shopping. Magen did THE BEST job ever plotting out our weekend. Considering neither of us had been to Austin, I think we hit up some pretty killer places. For example, lunch and shopping at The Domain.
It was here at Glorias (which I believe we have in Dallas?) that we had the GENIUS idea to purchase last minute tickets to iHeart Radio Country Fest. Now we are huge country music fans, and had been eyeing the concert for months prior to our Austin arrival. But at the $200+ price tag, our better judgement took over. I decided to randomly check StubHub that morning and what do you know, row one upper deck, which is always my go to seat, was just $67 a ticket. Pricey yes, but for 10 of the best acts in the business, we decided to throw our last-minute boots on, Austin style!
We could even walk to the venue from the fantastic location of our hotel, but first, let's take a #selfie.
I'm not usually a #selfie fan, but I can't get that damn song out of my head. Anyway, how about that walk to the concert? Talk about gorgeous weather....
If you follow me on twitter, I apologize I went a little crazy with the tweets, but in my defense, they kept picking my tweets to show on the jumbo tron! This made me way more excited than it should, but oh well, life is too short not to get excited over jumbo tron tweets.
The concert lasted until around 12:30, we ordered all the food from the hotel when we got back, and headed to bed. The next morning called for brunch at this adorable place called Searsucker, followed by exploring my new favorite city. I can see why people would choose to attend that other UT, I would love to live in Austin for 4 (and a half) years!
Before I say peace out today, and maybe for tomorrow because I try to avoid the internet like the plague on April Fool's Day, I've got someone I want you to meet! Lesley from By the Porchlight is bringing you.... are you ready for this.... A SPICE WORLD DRINKING GAME. Holy epic-ness Batman!!! Now if we can somehow get them to get back together for a world tour and give us all free tickets, that would really be incredible!
