2-21 to 2-25-2014 Cara's Cousin Visits

Cara's cousin Lindsey was our first visitor - all the way from Denver, Colorado!  We packed a lot into her short visit and had a ton of fun!  Highlights included partying on 6th Street, brunch and shopping on South Congress (SoCo), brunch at 1886 Cafe in the historic Driskill Hotel downtown, watching the bats under the Congress Street Bridge, dinner on Rainey Street, touring the LBJ Library and Museum, and enjoying live blues at the famous Continental Club.

We found The Mystery Machine!  It was parked on 6th Street.  I guess The Gang was out partying too!

Eric and Lindsey at Banger's Sausage House & Beer Garden on Rainey Street.
(They actually have amazing vegetarian sausage, and their outdoor seating area rocks!)

The kind of creepy animatronic LBJ

Tip: Watch from both above and below the bridge - totally different perspectives!
The Peterson Brothers Band at the Continental Club.
I believe they are ages 14 and 17, and they're good!
