If anyone ever needed a reminder of how wonderful Austin life is, Blues on the Green is a good start. It’s amazing how many people come out every other Wednesday to gather and get their rock n’ roll on. Amazing.
Over the weekend, Billy mentioned that his friend Lee was looking for some ladies to hand out koozies for his new business at this week’s Blues. And since I love to make cocktail induced commitments, I quickly committed Kara, Jodie, and myself to hand out 1,000 koozies in blazing hot weather. Hey Kara and Jodie, you’re welcome!
The new business? Bastrop River Company! Bastrop offers tubing, paddle boarding, and kayaking a bit closer to town and at a fraction of the price as other river adventures. Ohhhh and the best part? Beer is legal in Bastrop! A recent ban on cans could set you back a whopping 500 bucks if you’re planning on drinking on the Guadalupe. And since tubing and cold beers tend to go hand in hand, I’d say checking out Bastrop is most definitely the way to go!
And as far as the thousand-koozie-task-at-hand? Total success! Not only did we have a blast and get nicknamed “The River Ladies”, we also managed to hand out every single koozie in less than 30 minutes! We were pleased as punch and signed ourselves up for handing out another thousand in two weeks.
If you’re out and about at Blues on the 11th, keep an eye out for The River Ladies and be sure to get yourself some Bastrop swag!!!
