The more I hear about it, the more Austin seems like my kind of town.

And what's cool about ACL Festival is that many of these bands play in the local clubs around that weekend. Wilco is awesome.

Stop it. You're reminding me how great it was to live in Austin.

Very nice. I love going to Austin. Definitely check out Salt Lick, and heck, there is one right in the airport now, but really you should go to the original.

Consider me jealous.

I just noticed the dates, I may just have to attend.

The fam and I are heading over to Amy's, on Congress, tonight and then we are going to check out the bats. We have some family in town who have not yet witnessed the spectacle of the bats.

Michael, I'll take you up on that game at the festival. This is our first year attending, any tips? Parking secrets? Specific hippies to stear clear of?

Also, any BGG friends of mine that live outside the Austin area, we have a guest room that is available during ACL... if you're interested in attending the festival on the cheap, drop me a line.

Definitely take a shade umbrella. You'll need it for the whole day out there. Parking, well that's a trick. I never use the busses, I usually try and find parking over the bridge off 5th by the runtex. Usually nice hideaway spots, and it's an easy walk over the bridge into the park. Also take folding chairs, and a camera, lots of wild life to see. Plenty'o'cash, as they don't let you take in anything like water, or beverages. A hacky sack and a frisbee, some portable games!. Stay away from the brown mushrooms.
