Austin Events: May 21 – 23

May 20, 2010

Well, somehow the week got away from me and I never got around to posting this week’s events.  I’ll blame it on the fact that I was still recovering from my brother’s weekend wedding extravaganza, nurturing my tired brain with plenty of daytime television.  But it wasn’t a total loss; my ACL Lineup: Reactions post that I wrote on Tuesday received a lot of visits and had pretty good participation as well.  I really appreciate when people take the time to comment on my blog.  Hint, hint.

Anyway, to catch up for the week, I’m going to post my picks for weekend events, starting…NOW!
