Two Days After Publication Day!

Still winding down after a fun event at Vintage Bookstore and Wine Bar in Austin, where the launch of The Splendid Ticket took place on Tuesday. And tonight, another event, at Batch Craft Beer and Kolaches (3220 Manor Road, Austin), where I will sit in conversation with The Austin Chronicle‘s Wayne Alan Brenner, and discuss books and writing and heaven knows what else. There should be a great turnout, as Brenner (he is best known by his enduring mononym) is a longtime Austin culture and arts impresario with a league of rabid admirers. The second great draw for the evening is LOTE, Austin’s great caravan of cuisine, accessible just inches away from the main happening. The third draw is the BEER. Batch is Bat City’s premier craft beer hub, with new creations available weekly. I will say that honorable mention goes to Batch’s cinnamon buns, available in the mornings only. They are dangerous objects, highly addictive, and available only at Batch, where the baker-sorcerers create them in gold crucibles. I understand there are already three Batch-Cin-Bun-Anon chapters in full operation, with nightly meetings in the 512 area code. So: Come to BATCH tonight, for literature, beer, and tacos, but drop by tomorrow morning to start your new cinnamon-bun habit.
