    Hey, Austin RealJock-ers:

    You guys want to meet up at the Pride goings on this Saturday?

    Nothing structured, just a "let's hang out at X around X o'clock for drinks and convo" sort of thing.

    Extend it to visiting Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, etc. RJ'ers?

    Just an idea.

    I'll be there. Not sure I want to talk to y'all though. I mean we'll be see everyone on Friday at GQB.

    Ok, I guess I'll hang out with y'all for a bit.

    And I thought the Pride stuff was Sunday... whew.

    Here's some info about the Festival...

    Yeah, I know, I'm missing out on GQB, which sucks because "black t-shirt" is one of the few looks I can really pull off.

    But I just figured that we could all get together for camaraderie and fellowship, and whatever else it is that people who hang out on the same internets do.

    But being new to the area, I don't know what the lay of the land is going to be like at the event. Is there a beer tent or something along those lines?

    In past years, Austin Pride was held at Waterloo Park. There, they had beer/food tents, as well as exhibitor tents, with a stage at one end of the park. Auditorium Shores is a bigger venue, but I'm assuming it'll be a similar setup. The Gazebo might be a good rendez-vous point. What say 2PMish?

    Hey! I'm volunteering at the Habitat Pride Build booth (we got the GLBT community together to build a house late last year, and are making it an annual thing) from roughly 2-7. I don't know where it is -- I don't even know where the booths are at all, fundamentally, but I'll figure it out.

    Anyway, RJers, swing on by and say hi!!

    I'm actually moving to Austin tomorrow morning. My buddy Jerry set me to stay with him for a few weeks until I get settled in.

    Hope to finally meet some of you Austin RJays.

    See ya @ PRIDE, GQB

    What time is all this going down? I am supposed to head down to SA to stay with a friend and then we are treking out for a hike on Sunday at Enchanted Rock. I am due to head down to SA in the evening, but might be up for a meet up at pride. Not sure when it starts.

    I will be at GQB tomorrow night! Any word where it is yet?

    Okay, it's settled then (I think), we'll congregate at the Gazebo at Auditorium Shores at 2pm.

    I'd suggest we wear a color, but why overcomplicate it?

    I would also suggest we wear large "Carmen Miranda" towering fruit hats, but a suggestion that whimsical is bound to get shot down.

    So let's just say we'll be the gay guys there. How could that possibly be confusing on that day?

    I think I gotta be at the Habitat Pride Build booth starting right at 2 so I can't make it. But if I can sneak over there a minute late I'll swing by the gazebo. I'm 6'4" and I have a white mohawk (usually not spiked -- so just look for the white stripe.) Hard to miss.
