Just to warn, er.. I mean let you know, there's been a couple of TX g2gs a year for the past 4 years or so, and usually half the people are from out of state. In other words, expect lots of interest. We do like our g2gs here in Texas.

Goodness, someone is going to need to keep a G2G calendar, lol. I'm planning on attending the Michigan G2G which the weekend of October 4th. That is also the first weekend of ACL Fest, October 11th is the second. So Austin will be jam packed both of those weekends.

The fall Pecan Street Festival downtown on 6th Street is September 28th & 29th. It's a free festival downtown that happens once in the spring and once in the fall. Here's a link: http://www.oldpecanstreetfestival.com/ Since it's free it would be easy to meet as a group downtown at a restaurant, then wander around the festival and meet back up for an evening activity. (So it would be just under four months from now).

This is just an idea to get the brainstorming going - there are always lots of activities going on - post away!

Going by the other Texas G2G, I think there would be some non-kid-friendly activities. For instance, we went bar-hopping (at night) the last time we had a G2G in Austin. But we're normally fairly well behaved during the daylight hours.

Seriously, the G2Gs are what the attendees want them to be. If someone wanted to plan a couple of kid-friendly activities, there are probably others who would be interested.

if it gets closer to the date, and you don't get a PM, and don't want to post on the thread again, PM me and I'll fill you in on the details.
