There is a new restaurant in town, and as you can see, they have some nice macaroni and cheese, fried okra, and chicken with gravy. It is a tiny joint located just off the freeway and named The Saucy Rooster Chicken Company. If you find yourself in Round Rock, check out the menu and see if there is something you might like to try.
The Pflugerville Deutschen Pfest made for a fun afternoon. Of course my favorite activity was the petting zoo with the little pigs, rabbits, goats, and chickens who just wanted to have a relaxing Sunday. The bands were good. My favorite was a band called The Eggmen, which is a Beatles tribute band. Otherwise, it was a big happy fair with rides, booths, food and drinks.
There was time for another celebration today. It was the 100th birthday for the Deep Eddy Swimming pool. There was swimming, birthday cake, and a band to help celebrate. It got busy inside the pool grounds, so I left out the back gate and took a walk along the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail to enjoy some of the sights.
The Elisabet Ney Museum had its Fourth Annual Ney Day Celebration under cloudy skies and with humid weather today. It didn’t rain, so the bands could play and everyone could relax and enjoy the event.
I got up early (for a Saturday) in support of the March of Dimes. The walk was fun, but the ducks at the lake were way cooler. I think they were in search of breakfast, but they were still friendly when they discovered that I was bearing no food.
There is an innovative art exhibit on the third floor roof of the Student Activity Center on the University of Texas campus called The Color Inside. It is described on the website as “a naked-eye observatory in the heart of the main campus, where visitors view the sky through an opening in the ceiling called an oculus.” They discourage photography for some reason, but I found the space to be most photogenic on a sunny afternoon. I’ll need to return with my button hole spy camera during the sunset or sunrise hours to try for some even more awesome photos. Wish me luck!
If the Pecan Street Festival isn’t fun enough for you, try throwing in the band called Calliope Musicals. They are starting to rise to the top of my favorite Local bands. Go see them if they arrive at a town near you.
Pretty good advice from the graffiti artist / Pac-Man fan. “Never Give Up”. Also, try this Google Doodle if you like Pac-Man.
It was a beautiful day in the city to have the Art City Austin event. There were tons of artists displaying their wares, lots of music to enjoy, and some spectacular views of the city. Overall, a pretty cool way to spend a Sunday.
