Say Yes All The Way

Sorry Austin, I've been cheatin' on ya with the other love of my life, New York! But I'm glad to be back and am already jazzed about the upcoming events this month.

If you've been wondering where all the trailers have been disappearing to, it's likely they are setting up shop on Auditorium Shores for the first ever Gypsy Picnic Trailer Food Festival. It's tomorrow (or today, since I'm writing this at 3am) from 11am-8pm and it will be jam packed with $3 sample plates from your soon-to-be favorite trailers. It's free to attend, but bring some cash, your kids, and your Fidos. Do I have any recommendations? Oh yeah, just a few. The Jalopy for some sweet-ass sandwiches, Gourdough's and Banarchy for dessert, Izzoz Tacos and Holy Cacao for a snack, and a little coffee from Patika Coffee. Go ahead, partake. You can burn it off later as you take on Team Say Yes in the GoLocal Scavenger Hunt next week.

It's a city-wide scavenger hunt happening on the 14th of this month. It'll be an all day affair with sign-ups at 11, hunting from 12-4, and free feasting from 4-6. You need to preregister your team of 2-4 ahead of time, as they will only be accepting 300 people, so do it soon! The cost is $25 and the proceeds will support the Austin Zoo. I look forward to seeing you out there and winning first, second, or third prize!

If you've got an extra $125 saved up, check out Luminalia: An Evening of Celestial Delight at Umlauf Sculpture Garden, also this Sunday. Your ticket includes dinner, poetry, and dance with a 17th century Shakespearean feel. They even have special costumes for rent at Costume World. Should be a classy time!

In the meantime, don't forget to stock up on a winter wardrobe this Veteran's Day (that's the 11th) at Saver's. If you don't know by now, these sales are the BEST! The BEST, Jerry, the best! (By the way, he's coming to town!) Both stores will be participating and you can shop till you drop from 7am-9pm. I'm a size small. Wink. Don't forget to get a stamp card while you are there, so you can earn 30% off your next purchase just for donating or spending a few bucks.

Celebrity Autobiography also opens this week at the Long Center, so get your tickets now. The Tom Booker we all know and love from Confidence Men will be up on stage reading true excerpts from celebrity autobiographies, so it should be as awesome as a double rainbow, all the way.

I really hope to see you all out and about this week, enjoying the weather and soaking up this beautiful city!
