Despite all evidence to the contrary, turns out, I’m not invincible.
Though I’d like to be at the Gables Sneak Peek or a Whole Foods tour in honor of Dishola’s Dish-for-Dish (review a dish already, people!) or a happy hour birthday party at Piranha (man do I love their sushi) or Beer and Bingo at Jo’s, I am going to be on a couch, toilet paper roll nearby (don’t have Kleenex around), lemon-infused water in hand. Yes, allergies and/or a cold have knocked me down.
In my honor, YOU should please enjoy one of these fun Wednesday activities:
Drag Queen “Sapphire” will be reading the numbers, there’ll be a DJ and great prizes.
Beer is $3 and cards are $1; all money from the cards goes to Caritas.

A few months ago, I got an email alerting me that the Austin Young Chamber of Commerce is now live and accepting members: www.austinyc.org. With so many organizations out there, what makes the AYC unique? One of the founders and a friend of mine, Johnny Rodgers, promises AYC will foster business to business relationships as well as keep you informed with what’s really going on in Austin. “I feel like there is a real opportunity here to bring together like-minded individuals from all over Austin and connect them with each other,” he says.
Work Hard. Play Hard. That is the motto of the AYC.
Curious? I missed the first, but tonight there is a second AYC Membership Mixer followed by “Rock The ’80s” featuring LC Rocks. 6-8pm at Speakeasy, 412 Congress Avenue Austin, TX 78701. Drink specials extended until 8pm. Bring your business card to enter in a raffle for a free ticket to play in the AYC Poker Tournament on August 27th.
