Fetish Closing Sale

Sad news on the boutique front. With further evidence the economy is hitting hard, Fetish on 12th and N. Lamar is officially closing its doors. Everything is now 75% off in order to clear out stock. You can pick up great deals on boutique fashion clothing, shoes and jewelry. Be sure to spread the word, we want to our friends over at Fetish go out with style.

Cream Vintage

One of our new favorite places is Cream Vintage, where a girl can find all things rare for a reasonable price. We enjoy vintage shops that keep gals like us in mind. Selection includes lots of pearl snap shirts, fun flirty skirts, and a wide array of dresses, jackets, jeans and suits!!. Don't forget to hit up the accessories and hats, as well!! It could almost too good to be true.

The best part? They do in-house alterations for a small fee...we're hearing $5 small. Now that is our kind of small. And especially since we are short girls, we need all the help we can get to look as tailored as possible!! So take it up, bring it in, shorten the straps - the works!!
Check them out, drop us a line!

LOST at Alamo Drafthouse!

Raise your hand if your uber-obsessed with LOST? Ever have a Wednesday night that you would rather giggle with the audience when Hurley throws a hot pocket at Ben. Or gasp when creepy attorneys come to Kate's door asking for a blood test? And how about that Sun, do we trust her?! Sometimes, you just gotta to talk it out.

LOST has quickly become one of our favorite shows that we love to share in the "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" moments. Well, you no longer have to go at it alone. Alamo Drafthouse now presents each episode of LOST on Wednesday nights at 9:30. We can watch it with your nearest and dearest, while being served. And who doesn't love that?! Big screen, big bucket, big pizza. It all flows.

The best part?! It's f-r-e-e. You got it. No bones. The Drafthouse highly advises that you get to the theater 45 minutes before showtime in order to get a good seat. AND if you really want to go the extra mile to ensure some Jate action, hop online to reserve your seat with a $5 food and beverage voucher... and lets be honest, you were going to get that coke anyway!

Why We Heart Austin!

Budget Travel has a feature on Austin: 25 Reasons We Love Austin. You can find the online article here: http://tinyurl.com/celyfp . Its a great idea to hit up places we haven't yet been or old haunts we have not seen in awhile.

As we know, there are far more than 25 reasons to love this town.
How about that first beautiful day after a long cold spell or cloudiness, everyone hits Town Lake or Hula.
The wide array of tacos at Taco Deli.
Newcomer -the tiniest bar in texas!
The 78704.
A night with your closest pals at Polvos.
Longhorn Football Tailgating.
Whole Foods WORLD headquarters.
Deep Eddy Cabaret on a Friday night, where worlds often collide.
The fact the city never truly sleeps.
Constant music gigs ... big and small.
Hippies, Yuppies Unite.
The list could go on forever...

But now we beg the question, what are your most favorite things about Austin?!

Cheers to keeping Austin weird!!

Extreme Bingo

Looking for a new form of entertainment? Check out the B-12 Bingo Hall on 290 and take a chance on some big fun. The best part…..for only $5 you can buy 5 game sheets with pots starting out at as high as $100 and climbing. First time visitors receive a dauber of their choice and don’t forget to bring a cocktail or two as drinks are permitted as you play. I recommend the non-smoking section as the smoking area can get a little rambunctious and a little hard to breath. See ya there gamers!
