Saturday night in Austin, TX

I flew to Austin today. A guy asked me if I'd switch places with his assigned seat in first class so he could sit with his girlfriend in coach. Oh, that would be an enthusiastic yes! Here was first class lunch:
first class in 4F.

The hotel has a policy of no unregistered guests in rooms after 10:30, and said they check IDs at the elevator after 10:30. I had to sign my agreement to this policy. Wow.
The hotel is posh and has some cool Texas style.  Here's the chair and ottoman in my room.

Antoinette, my favorite clever girl, picked me up at the hotel. We had dinner at the flagship Whole Foods store. Waaay larger than the one in Princeton, and super crowded for a Saturday night (in my opinion)! We also went to Parts and Labour, (where Austin crafters sell their crafts, a very cool place), Amy's ice cream, and the Hey Cupcake trailer.

We also went to Zen:

And did I mention, I love her hot car!

My work conference starts tomorrow afternoon. But we are going to meet up for breakfast with "Leslie in Austin" of PR fame. :)

Good night, y'all.
