There is so much to do in and around Austin for a single person. It's an incredible playground full of fun.
During the month I didn't have my kids, I explored. I promised myself when I was going through my horrific separation and divorce that I would try new things. I read, I ran, I wrote, I went out with friends, I dated, I shopped, I talked to my kids, I met knew people, I decorated my house and relaxed.
Thank you to all of my friends (and friends of friends) who helped make the summer truly memorable.
Here are some of my favorites:
Go to a concert and meet the band
Twenty One Pilots, Mute Math and Chef's Special concert was incredible at Circuit of the Americas.
There's tons of concerts every weekend.
Go to a concert and dance onstage with your friends
We rented a party bus and went to the 90s concert at the Cedar Park Center. SO MUCH FUN!
Eat delicious food
La Condesa is so very good and they make a great Sangria.
Uchi, Odd Duck, Lick's Ice Cream, Geraldine's... There's so much good food in Austin.
The Rose Room is my fav right now. But there's tons of places if that isn't your thing.
Go to a Grand Opening and Give to Charity
Hanover's 2.0hanovers2.com Grand Opening was tons of fun with a special performance by my friend's children, Suede, yummy food and drinks, great service and hilarious friends.
They offer table service.
We celebrate everyone's birthday and have a large group, so there's always a party somewhere. Make your friend feel special with a great night or day out: Wine Tour, Wagner's Backyard, Cover 3, Jack Allen's, a stay in a downtown hotel, Hanover's, etc., etc., etc. LOTS of OPTIONS!
Splash in the Puddles and Walk in the Rain
It finally rained. Downtown was completely deserted and so pretty! Made for a great stroll with the lights reflecting off the water.
Go to a Wedding - Celebrate Love
Friends had their after party at Cedar Street Courtyard! GREAT IDEA! Band was funky and so funny.
The season is almost over, but there's still time to catch a game. It's a great way to relax with friends and family.
Excellent place for adults! There's plenty of space to park your rear in the sand (sun and shade) and relax around the lake with lakeside drink service. Horseshoe Bay offers a marina with boat and jet ski rentals (so much fun), tons of pools with music and bars nearby, tennis, mini golf, yummy restaurants, etc. etc.
Trapeze lessons, football games and whatever I can get into. :) Life is an adventure - go get it!
I'm single and loving it. Two kids and a busy job. Life is an adventure. Being single is liberating. Life is short, spread joy.
