Sometimes, we just wanna sit back, relax and enjoy our favorite beer.  On September 29th you can sample Texas brews and pick your favorite when the Texas Craft Brewers Festival pitches its tents at Fiesta Gardens in Austin.  This is the state's largest craft beer event.  Now I'll drink to that!  


Austin Record Convention from September 29 - 30, 2018

For the serious music aficionados, the Austin Record Convention is a little bit of heaven on earth as over 300 vendors showcase music and related memorabilia spanning many decades and genre of music. From LPs to cassettes and even some 8-tracks, you'll find it all.  The Convention aims to bring together people who have a shared love of music and this can also be a great opportunity to take your kids out and show them what life was like before digital music.

Enjoy!
