Ah…You Made It

Welcome to the new digs. Feel free to take a look around. It’s still a work in progress. But, I really enjoy WordPress. Since my coding skills are VERY limited, and Blogger Beta was disappointing. I decided I needed a change.

Also, I have a new feed for those who who read via a newsreader. (bloglines, google reader etc.) Just click the link below, and it will give you various options to choose from.

Peace & Love from Austin

Weekend Roundup

In Austin, Uncategorized by Chris Marlow1 Comment

Someone forgot to tell mother nature that it’s October, therefore 90 degree weather should be a thing of the past, right? Wrong! Man it’s hot.  (I can hear all my friends in Seattle laughing right now)

Allergies have got me down,  but I finally made it out. Saturday we ate at the Texas Road House, pretty good  food and not bad on the wallet. Our kids loved the peanuts, especially the fact that you can throw the shells on the floor.  Took the family to Austin Java for a little brunch which included a latte and some breakfast tacos, yummy!

Now I’m just waiting for a little cooler weather, and some rain. I think I forgot what rain is!

Go Local

One of the reasons I wanted to live in Austin is the local culture that is promoted. Austin is unique, fun, hip and local. Sure we have our fair share of “big box” corporate chains.

But, we also have a huge local business atmosphere. And the city seems to rally behind it’s local business owners, which is great. Click here for some more info.

Anyhow next time you see Cold Stone, or Amy’s. Pick Amy. The more we choose “local” more cash will stay in the Austin economy, and that my friend is a good thing!

Austin City Limits Music Festival started today, over 200,000 people will swarm Austin over the next 3 days, nuts!

If you are a chump like me, and you have no tickets; you can still catch the show live. The feed is here.

Enjoy, and hopefully next year I will be able to attend?

We are now off to brave the crowd downtown to hang with J & Amanda and eat some fish tacos at wahoo’s.
