Actually we’ve got a nice little Sunday planned. We’re going to Home Depot to pick out some wallpaper, then maybe we’ll hit Bed Bath and Beyond… I don’t know! I don’t know if we’ll have enough time….
That’s what you say if you’re Frank “The Tank” Picard and you live in the ‘burbs.
But, if you’re lucky enough to live in downtown Austin, your Sunday probably looks quite a bit different. I know mine usually does.
Take today, for example. This afternoon, I “trekked” over to Zach Scott Theatre to do a little volunteering, and was then actually lucky enough to be able to see the show that’s currently running on the Kleberg Stage – “Red Hot Patriot,” a play about the revered Texas icon, Molly Ivins (played by Barbara Chisholm). Good show. And, with the 2011 Legislature now in session, this play seems particularly appropriate to see. AND, for the antsy among us, it’s the perfect run time – ~78 minutes, no intermission, and they sell booze at the concession stand before the show. The fast and easy way to get in a little culture!
