i stayed at a Hyatt Place - this is a new hyatt concept apparently - its sorta like a souped up Courtyard by marriott -the rooms all feature a 40+" flat screen HDTV, and a lounge area. the hotel itself has a 24 hours kitchen that you can order food at, and free continental breakfast that is pretty nice. oh, and the front desk has fruit and water and drinks etc for sale ala convenient store.
some of my favorite non bout working/watching times down there were when we went out for some super tasty tex-mex foods at Chuy's. man. their homemade salsa is sooooo good. and then the BBQ that Desi and Koolaid got for me for my bday at the Green Mesquite?!? tasty! and surprisingly the airport food that i got in dallas at DFW on the way down to austin was extremely good. bbq beef brisket sammich w/ green beans? TOTAL AWESOMENESS.
FTW? spending time and seeing some of my favorite derby people from across the country.
