After excellent feedback and further thought, I decided to shake things up with the “This Week In Austin” segment of the blog by picking my “Best Bets” every week, so that the calendar is not so intimidating and you actually have my recommendations for what to do and where to head in this great town. That said, here we go…have an excellent next week, y’all!
