Have fun everyone! Go Vettel, Perez and Lotus!
There is a lot of things to do in Austin, 6th street is lined with bars, usually filled with young drunk college students. I like east 6th, it's an older crowd and more relaxed even though i doubt it will be very relaxed. my best friend has a radio show in Austin and said they are expecting 250,000 people this weekend. I'll be at Fado Irish Pub for Will Buxton's Big Bash and who knows where we'll end up Saturday, i might go to some of the concerts. Check out the local restaurants and food trucks.
