BLACK (NOIR) PARTY: 

black party noir bazaar xx austin

we attended a party hosted by XX (Dos Equis)

bazaar noir xx

they had a variety of entertainment, drinks and eats.  we were each given a card to be taken around to four stations to get a punch after some new experience.

"AUSTIN!!!  are you horny tonight?" (nobody responded, just the sound of people chatting and shuffling about.  she repeated the question)

"AUSTIN!!!  are you HORNY TONIGHT!!"  this time there were audible groans and a few unenthusiastic "noooo".  she left it like that.  people in austin might be a bit jaded.  not going to fall for the old "are you horny?" type of pandering. 

it was fun. 

WHITE PARTY:

white linen second district austin

White Linen night was sponsored by Tito's Vodka.  many of the shops and galleries in the 2nd street district were open with free drinks.  we enjoyed a pineapple and jalapeno (with Tito's) at the Big Ass Canvas Gallery.

then we went to the afterparty at Bonneville.

White mule!  like a Moscow Mule, but they are cucumber infused.

it was a great party.  free cocktails and appetizers.  we sat at the bar and ordered the Toasted Orrecchiette Pasta: House-Made Veal Meatballs and Local Braising Greens, Veal Jus.

it was really good.  kat was surprised by how much she enjoyed it.  I'd easily recommend it.

I made a new friend.  this is how I do it: the bartender asked if I was OK.  I replied, we're thirsty, and so are my friends (motioned to the girls next to me).  he came back with four white mules and the girls were very impressed.  yeah, I can impress girls with free cocktails all day/night long.
