Happy, happy Cinco de Mayo from all of us here at The Frugal Drinker. Lucky for all of us, it’s on a Thursday! I did a quick search of some things going around in Austin if you want to head into the madness to get your drink on. Santa Rita’s event and the Pubcrawl seems to getting a lot of attention, so check those out if you’re interested.
All of us here are just excited to bring our undergraduate careers to a close as this week is the last, and naturally most stressful, week of classes at UT. The moment I’m done with classes today, I’m cracking open a bottle of Dos. Have fun and drink responsibly!
