Tonight we made it to the last concert in this year’s Blues on the Green free concert series at Austin’s lovely Zilker Park. Bright Light Social Hour was the headliner. We joined Lori and Doray, who have made it to every show this year. They’re professionals; they have the parking/tailgating/setup thing down. We got downtown early, went for a swim in Barton Springs Pool and then headed over to the Great Lawn to set up our chairs and share some nibblies before the show.
Last week I went in to Lenscrafters to order replacements for my Raybans that I lost on our last San Marcos tubing trip. They called today to say they were ready.
While I was at the Arboretum to pick them up, I took a walk around the nearby park. If you’ve been there you may recognize the stone cows. A favorite for kids of all sizes to climb up on.
They used to have Blues on the Green at this park every Wednesday night. It’s held down at Zilker Park now. I checked out the schedule for the rest of the summer (here’s a link)… there’s 3 more scheduled. I’m going to try to make one of them.
