For the weekend? Maybe you ought to just stay home
At least that’s what the Statesman seems to be telling you to do. As usual, there is a flurry of activity in downtown. This weekend the Texas Independence 5K Run will close streets and as that loops around the Capitol, the Ronal McDonald House Fun Walk will close what streets the other run left open. Whew! Then there’s the Texas Independence Day Parade that starts at 11:00. If all that isn’t your cup of tea, there’s the Texas Home & Garden Show at the Convention Center.
Thankfully, I’m always too hungover on Saturday to be affected by the goings on downtown. By the time I stumble outside to do anything I am usually just wondering why there are so many orange cones and barricades beside the street.
