The Earth Day celebration in Austin was held at the campus of Huston-Tillotson University on the East side of town. The campus is situated on a hill that has beautiful sight lines of Austin. There were butterflies, dinosaurs, bats, bands, performers, food trucks, drinks, and all sorts of fun to be had on a nice cool day in Austin.
My first ever visit to the Sahara Lounge on the East side of Austin. As a bonus, there was Marimba music. It was pretty awesome.
This event for the East Austin Studio Tour was pretty cool. Imagine Art is a large art space on the East side set up to assist artists with and without disabilities. As a bonus tonight, they hosted some performances by a classical music group called Tetractys. It was a good idea to mix the art exhibit with performance. Also, sock monkeys hold a special place in my heart.
In case you missed it, here are the highlights from Just the Tip: Street Art From El Paso and Juarez. It was a tiny, tiny venue with a few interesting pieces of artwork.
This art installation is called Geoscape. 30 Tetrahedrons set up in the park. 🙂
Today’s breakfast was on the East side of town. Juan in a Million is a Tex-Mex Restaurant that opened in 1980 on East Cesar Chavez, and is still going strong. I ordered from the breakfast menu and chose the Con Queso Breakfast which includes “Two eggs served any stle with queso, carne guisada, refried beans, potatoes and two flour tortillas”. I’m pretty sure this is a healthy way to start your day…
