Friday fancy-free

bandjune.jpgPreviewing tomorrow’s parade today, we also saw Leslie in full Santy regalia, posing prettily for the benefit of the picture-snapping tourists. As we followed the bands up to the Capitol, we noted that Texadelphia on Congress is now Texadelphia on Brazos near the Driskill according to the sign in the window of the vacated premises. We didn’t check Brazos, though. At Louie’s 106, still open throughout weekday afternoons, we refreshed ourselves according to our preferences: for one, it was New England clam chowder; for another, it was crab cake, for me it was a salmon dish piping hot from the sautee pan. Just to show the Austin remains a small town, we recognized the Louie’s hostess as a former counter person at Sweetish Hill just at the same moment as she recognized us. At Copa’s Bar and Grill, heading back toward the bridge, we found that nobody had scored yet in Mexico’s game. Copa’s was serving a special appetizer menu in addition to its regular items. The room with the screens in it was filled, with everybody in the very convivial crowd sitting at candle-lit tables, which was very funny to see in the middle of a bright weekday afternoon. Many spectators happened upon the parade purely by chance and now plan to see tomorrow’s parade intentionally.
