YOU are responsible for buying the duck tour ticket online, as well as booking your hotels. The wine tasting will take cash.

1:30 PM Austin Duck Adventures Tour

Austin Duck Adventures is Austin’s best tour with 75 minutes of sightseeing that includes Historic Sixth Street, the State Capitol Building, Bob Bullock State History Museum, the Governor’s Mansion, and Lake Austin
After the tour I plan to check into our hotel. Check in is at 3pm.
I'm booked at Extended Stay Southwest about 5 miles southwest from downtown. I wanted something cheap, because I don't plan on being in the room much, but to sleep. The location works great for when we take off Sunday morning to the Vineyards.
5:30 PM Meet downtown for dinner. After the duck tour we can come up with a place to meet. Something on 6th street would be fun.
7:30 PM Head to Esther's Follies for the 8pm show. The show will end around 9:30pm
Reserved price is $29.
After the show - maybe bar hop down 6th street - see what bands are playing.
You need to give yourself 45-60 minutes to get here from downtown, so plan ahead.

$10 wine tasting - champagne, 2 white, 4 reds and their reserve collection which includes more reds and port.

***You can bring food to this place, so I plan to buy crackers and cheese sunday morning before leaving downtown and keep in a small cooler.
24350 Haynie Flat Rd
4 PM to 5 PM - Head to Hotel and Check In.
I'm staying at the Vintage Villas and they have told me if we show up as a group, then my groupon won't be valid! Anyhow...I suppose we can stagger in and act like we don't know each other lol.
There are other places to stay in this area called Lakewood.
7 PM Meet for dinner at Iguana Grill off Lake Travis
This is 5 minutes from the Villas and 5-10 from Lakewood.
I plan to sleep in and enjoy breakfast at the villa's. Before heading home I might go to Lakewood and check out the shops.
THE END :)
I'm very excited about our 2nd trip to Austin. The last one was so much fun, I hope I can make this one just as awesome!
