well honestly we haven’t seen any bands (ok we haven’t been to a single show), but we have been hanging out with friends and family, and eating good food and drinking good beer, and that stuff is better than seeing bands in my opinion.

yesterday, after breakfast, eric, chase and i went on an excursion to buy topo chico.

i was very impressed that you could buy them in cases!
we also purchased some beer, and couldn’t get over how inexpensive it was.
i was pretty excited to try shiner 101.

we hung out for a bit at my brother’s place.

and don’t think you weren’t going to get any cat pictures while we were away! this is zombie, my brother and jackie’s cat.

everyone was getting hungry and we decided to head to matt’s el rancho.

this is probably the only place, anywhere, that we make a point of eating at twice.

eric and i went with our usual order of matt’s jr. potatoes. it’s pretty simple, french fries, onion and jalapenos, but they do a soy sauce mixture on top that makes them amazing.

after lunch chase dropped us off at lindsay’s, and i was excited to see her cats as well.

we headed downtown with every intention of seeing some bands.

but then we opted out and hung out at a bar and drank a $6 pitcher.

we had dinner plans at a byob, so lindsay took us to whip in, it sort of reminded me of the foodery in philly, but a lot larger.

i was pretty excited about dinner because rachel and lindsay had found a vegan friendly indian restaurant.
