More beer cozys.
Me with a giant great dane. And a beer cozy. They're required in Texas apparently.
This kids stroller even shot flames out of the pipes!
The car show was massive and about a million people went. The music was not very good though. Neither was the shopping (swap meet). It was hot and I was tired of being in the sun after intermittently crying all day so we left around 4 and everyone headed down to Congress for the cruise. The great thing about Austin is that the city is very accomodating for this event. People sat on lawn chairs by the side of the road drinking beer out of their coolers watching the cars cruise down Congress. As long as its in a cozy its all good!

Our friends didnt show up til pretty late for the cruise and we were beat. I think we were home by midnight after stopping off at Your Mom's Burger Bar for a snack.
The next day was a casual day spent hanging out with our friends Mari and Mark. They took us to a couple very interesting Austin bars and restaraunts.
This place offered Chicken Shit Bingo for $2. Its exactly what it sounds like. Everyone sat in the parking lot drinking beer they brought from home (in cozys). Does Austin not have liqour laws???
Afterwards we went to the Driskill Hotel where we saw this:
At least the cocktails don't require a cozy.
That evening I promptly got the flu and then flew home the next day along with the Harlem Globetrotters (I'm not joking). I was just so happy to be home with my dog. Austin is just not my scene and I didnt have fun at all. Of course I may be judging it unfairly due to unforeseen events. Maybe I should go back sometime and give it another chance. It has pretty areas, good food, and great night life. But I obviously do not have good luck there. I didnt even buy anything!! What a waste!
