Zilker Kite Festival after coffee at Austin Java

Combining with another meet-up and already have 30+ RSVPs. We will convene for coffee at Austin Java and then walk over to Zilker for the Kite Festival. The festival is from 10am-5pm. Let's meet at Austin Java around 1pm and walk over around 1:30pm. It's a short distance and easier to meet here than at the park. If you have any other questions, www.zilkerkitefestival.com, consult this link.

    I am sorry, but if you are not able to arrive by 1:30p, it will not be possible for me to make accommodations based on the size of the group and the event. I hope everyone can make it and I appreciate your understanding.

    Barton Springs Road will be closed from 9am-6pm. DO NOT expect to park near the event. DO plan accordingly. The group will leave promptly at 1:30pm.
    The group will meetup outside Austin Java directly under the Austin Java Cafe & Bar sign which is located to the right when facing the bldg from Barton Springs Road.
    I do not want to discourage any one from attending the event, but this will be a large group and a huge event. In my experience in Austin at large events, CELL PHONES DO NOT WORK.

    Austin Java does not have the space to accomodate all the people who have RSVP'd, even accounting for all the no-shows. We will have to congregate outside. My intentions were to have a rallying point. Please do not plan on staying at Austin Java for very long. We will leave for the kite festival promptly at 1:30pm.

    Any seasoned kite festival goers with tips on where to park and walk in? From what I understand, Barton Springs Rd. will be closed.
