Hi Scott.  That is quite a list...

Have you created a 365 Things to do in Austin page yet?

With all this content you have here on this post, it would fit quite nicely on an FB page...

Nice job!

Scott - there's no shortage of events and happening to attend in Austin, Texas - you could have something new to do each weekend for the next month at least. Hope you're enjoying the holiday spirit and have a great week!

Hi Scott, Austin always has a lot more going on than San Antonio. That's why my daughter is always making those weekend trips up there to visit friends and to take part in many of these events.
