    Carnaval's TONIGHT! My cell is 281.300.1137. Feel free to text, but please realize it's difficult to respond during the event. We're soooooo lookin' forward to meeting up with everyone from Boomertime. Please come by the stands to the left as you enter the auditorium and say hello and/or hang out with us. Including the 34 from this group, we're currently showing a total count of 100 from all our favorite groups: Austin Social Club, It's Boomertime, North Austin Social Group, North Austin Singles, Austin Couples Meetup, and Austin Area Empty Nesters. And yes I factored out duplicate RSVPs. So get ready, get excited, be safe, and have fun! See y'all there! Matt

      Or you can park at One Texas Center---that big 13 story (city) building a block away. Or you can go with me if you like.

    If you will private e mail me I can offer a place in Barton Springs for at least 4 cars to park but someone would need to drive people to Carnival because its too far to walk.

    February 1, 2013

    • Matt B.

      Thanks for the offer Debby!

    Carnaval is only 5 days away! Looks like the weather's gonna cooperate this year....weather.com forecast for Sat nite: 73 high/53 low, 10% chance of rain, light SW breeze. Who's ready to have some fun? : )

    Has everyone bought their tickets? Got ours at Lucy in Disguise - cash only if you buy 'em there. If you buy on-line, allegedly you can print it out (or use your smartphone) and they'll scan it at the event - no waiting at Will Call. Suzanne and I are looking forward to partyin' with y'all. Don't forget your camera! : )

    Yesterday when I purchased my ticket, there were only 225 tickets left. More than likely it will sell out.

    I've always wanted a Tinkerbell balloon. ;)
    Seriously , I guess the idea is to help us find each other?

    You can come in a themed costume or any kind you can come up with.

  • Suzanne B.

    I loaded a few pics from last years event. The theme was Wizard of Oz. As you can see there a different kinds of costumes.

  • Suzanne B.

    If you go to sambaparty.com you can view pics from previous years. The theme this year is peter pan. Lots of characters to choose from. The trick to this event is as little costume as possible. This is a brazilian festival. People come body painted. But wear what you are comfortable in and have fun. I will try to post some pics from last year that Matt and I took.

    January 3, 2013

  • Suzanne B.

    No...just the regular tickets.

    January 2, 2013

  • Cathy W.

    Are u getting the VIP tickets?

    January 2, 2013

  • Suzanne B.

    We will be meeting inside. I will have Tinkerbell balloons at the top of the stands on the left side as you walk into the event center main stage.
