Hard Times

So apparently in my time away from Austin a lot has happened. I kept on reading strange tweets last night about gunshots in front of Spiro's and Plush and didn't really confirm what happened until this morning. Another person's post also said that there was a big fight outside of Beauty Bar where somebody got tazed? What on earth was going on last night? Here is a full article about the Spiro's incident. Luckily, it looks like there were no fatal injuries, but it is seriously unfortunate that anything like that happened at all. I've always seen Austin as a safer place.

Misprint Magazine issue release happy hour at the Mohawk from 5 - around 8. (The issue is supposed to be recession themed, go figure, and contain probably way too many economy jokes. Will they ever get old? Probably.)

Then, The Juan Maclean at the same location.

You can win free tickets to the Juan Maclean show on Austinist. The tickets are $10 advance and $12 at the door. I figure the processing fee will pretty much cancel out any benefit of buying advance. At least in my experience that is usually how things end up.

Hi, I am planning to walk from Chester in the UK to Rome in Italy with my dog to raise money for charity this year. I would appreciate it if you would check out my blog:

If you wouldn't mind, it would also be a great help if you could tell as many people as possible about my plans as I would like to raise as much as possible!
