It was around 4:30pm when Kenneth and I arrived to the Shady Grove - a cool and laid back restaurant/bar. 2 of his friends were already there enjoying a drink. After being introduced as "Yadi from Peru" I got a drink. Kenneth ordered for us both the signature drink: "Shady Thang". Party was getting started early, hehe. Well somewhere in the world it was already time to drink :)
The drink looked like a frozen Margarita and I love that drink, yummy! I tasted it and was very good and refreshing. At this time Kenneth told me the drink had besides other liquors: Pisco!!! OMG! I couldn't believe it, the signature drink of this place had pisco in it! Cool! The 4 of us were chilling out when 5 other friends arrived, great - the more the merrier.
The table got full and we could move to the restaurant area, but it was cozy here, plus we weren't hungry yet. Nobody had any idea about what to do later, so Kenneth asked for an Austin Paper to check what we could do later... well, not many interesting things but there were some hilarious ads, haha. Everyone was interested in know how Kenneth met a Peruvian girl and most important how she ended being in Austin during holidays, haha.
It was around 6pm when we went to the dining area.
Well, now we need food to suck the alcohol, haha.
I really enjoyed the dinner and Kenneth's friends, so did their friends, who decided to have a house party in a couple of hours. My plans for that night were going out with Mihn and the boys again. But I'd like to try something new... We drove back to Mihn's. I commented him my plan and he was cool with it, as long as I was cool with it.
We drove to Kenneth's friends and shared a fun time there. They had some liquors from the NYE party they had and also some fireworks, hehe. We were just chilling out at the yard, until it became too cool. So we moved inside. The guys were playing poker while I was talking with 2 sisters, whose grandpa was working in Peru for a while, haha, what a small world!!! We even had some "Black Eye Peas". Was I hungry? No, but Kenneth told me this was for good luck. Well, you are supposed to have them on Jan 1st, but since I didn't know about it... maybe it would still work for my good luck, haha.
We had a blast, but it was time to leave.
Well, it was time to say good bye to Kenneth and hopefully we'd meet in the near future. He wants to visit Peru and he has a friend in Lima :) The rest of us stayed up for a while and finally went to bed around 4am. Time to leave Austin was getting closer, but I'd be back!
