This weekend is the Austin SCBWI annual conference, so writers and editors and agents are descending on the city. Of course, one of the fun things about people coming in from out of town is showing them the city.
Last night, Cyn and I had a great time with Anne Bustard and Janice Scully to happy hour at the Broken Spoke, an Austin institution (Cyn and I, strangely enough, had never been). Tony Harrison and Hot Texas were playing "hot Texas swing." Great music, singing, and stage presence! The band plays every Thursday night.
Later, we headed out to County Line for barbecue and had great conversation about life, books, and everything in-between.
