Let's give it a shot! So happy we did it! The food was good. There were dishes better than the others, but in general it was very good.
"Ok, I have 2 hours to take a nap" These were Brian's words, haha. Well, he'd take care of his addiction and I'd take care of mine :P I was trying to contact Kenneth and David, 2 other TB's in Austin. Well, I have to be honest and said I took a nap too, but this was very short. Well, I'm not a big fan of football, so I was checking my email most of the game, hehe.
By this time we were at the house: Mihn, Brian, Habib, Yadi (4 of us lived at Mihn's), Vanessa (lives across the street), Alon and Kyon. We formed 2 teams: Brian, Minh & Yadi and Alon, Kyon & Vanessa. After a while Kyon decided to quit and Habib started to sing in his place, haha. We were having so much fun and then there was a duel: Alon vs Brian. Brian defeated Alon, but it was so tight, ufff... After a while, Vanessa, Alon and Kyon left. Habib was leaving to, but he'd be back on Friday night to party! The original 3: Brian, Mihn and Yadi would get ready for another party night. Vanessa would come for us and we'd meet Kyon and Alon downtown.
In the meanwhile I contacted Kenneth and he would join us later, yay! Austin's streets looked so different than yesterday. They were almost empty. Plenty of space to park, haha. We arrived to the lounge but oh no! There were steps!!! There weren't much people partying this night. Most of them were too tired and/or saving energies for the first weekend of the year.
We went to the bar and Kyon arrived a couple of minutes later. We went to a table and met some of the people we met last night at NYE's party. We were just chilling out when I recognized a familiar face... is he... Yes, it was Kenneth! Finally we met! Cool! We have been trying to meet 3 times during the last year and finally Jan 1st we met in person, haha. I introduced him to the whole gang and then we started to talk as old friends.
Ok, the atmosphere wasn't the greatest here, so let's go to another bar. Kenneth joined the group. Downstairs there was another bar. We went there and everybody started to say hi to Mihn. Kenneth just said: "Wow! he's very popular!" haha, well we were still waiting for Alon but he didn't answer his phone... Kenneth and I got some drinks and right after that Mihn told us, we'd go to another club. Ok, no problem. We drank our drinks as if they were shots, haha.
We were walking around and I couldn't believe there were so many places closed... Next place was a bar more in a Texas Style. Here it wasn't so loud, so we could talk much better.
It was around 1am when Vanessa left us. She had to work next morning... Work? What's that? Our only duty in Austin was to party, and so we did ;) At 2am they turned the lights on and stopped serving alcohol. But we were smart and got our drinks in advance, haha. Approx 30min later we left the bar. Kenneth should go back home - he doesn't live so close. Kyon would drive, so we drove Kenneth to his car first and then we went to another Austin institution: Magnolia's
I'd write a review about this place. They serve food 24hrs. The boys were starving and we were lucky to get a table right away.
Then we got our dishes. Kyon got tacos, Brian and Minh omelets and a Veggie omelet for me. Food was more than enough. The portions were huge!!! Brian is #1 fan of salsa and found this one the best of the best. So Mihn asked the waiter if we could get some salsa to go. She smiled and came back with a big cup full of salsa, haha. Brian's eyes were wide open and he just said: "my precious!" holding the cup with both hands.
Now it was time to go back home... We left the salsa in the fridge, the chips on the desk and were ready to go to bed. Tomorrow would be my last night in Austin, but I wouldn't go without fighting and trying to delay my flight back home for the 4th...
