Today was my first day ever in Texass, I must admit the Bush years gave me a scare as to what it would be like here and I have to admit I was apprehensive about actually taking the trip. My first interactions with Texans and with the state itself have been great.

After a couple margarita’s Brokenbrooklyn and I headed downtown to get familiar with the layout of the city before we get thrust into the insanity of the festival’s kick off. We went to Beauty Bar (probably the best Beauty Bar location) and got a vodka tonic for two freaking dollars. We then wandered around town until we needed to head to our first official Austin party at the Carousel Lounge, an amazing, friendly dive bar that looks (and feels) like carnival that was run down in the 60’s.

Making the best of our unplanned detour, we both grabbed tall cans of Lone Star Beer and I took in my first of what is sure to be many of The National Beer of Texas. The beers somehow lead the way and when we finally arrived at our destination it was soon very clear that the walk had been worth it: first we saw a Midwestern Drag King owning the stage; he was accompanied by his assistant Tatania and he had a pet named Pussy.
