Austin has the craziest events. Google decided to throw up a donut shop on Rainey Street and some winners got Google Home Mini devices to take home. I got a couple of pink donuts courtesy of Voodoo Doughnut. Yummy!
On this warm, humid, rainy night, the F1 race party came to town. The highlight of the party was the band called Ozomatli. They are known as a fun jam band that hops off the stage with their horns and their drums, and joins the crowd near the end of their show. That is when the party really gets started.
There is a small Oktoberfest Celebration going on at Banger’s this weekend, so I thought I would stop by for a pint. They boast to have the largest tap wall in Austin, with over 100 beers on tap. My choice was a Belgian-style Witbier called “Freetail Rye Wit” from the Freetail Brewing Company in San Antonio. It was very enjoyable as the sun started to set for the day.
I walked through Rainey Street (appropriately named for tonight’s weather) and went to the Neiman Marcus Make Some Noise party at 78 Rainey Street. It ended quickly after I arrived, but I did get to see the end of the set for Marina and the Diamonds. It was a good start to a very wet evening.
