Where were you on Saturday, November 6th, 2010? If you live in (or near) Austin, you were definitely at the Gypsy Picnic. How do I know? Because the entire city and its surrounding suburbs seemed to be in attendance. The crowds that congregated on Auditorium Shores became prohibitively large, making any attempt to enjoy the event completely futile. Unfortunately, that’s probably what the Picnic will be remembered for, rather than a great celebration of Austin’s unique food scene. Sit back and get comfy, this is gonna get long*.
Those of you who are privileged enough to know me certainly understand my excitement for new and unique food. I mean, my running blog transformed into a running PLUS food blog for that very reason. Surprisingly, Austin has proven itself to be quite accommodating to my food addiction (I think I would die without food!). Case in point, there’s a sweet event going on here the first weekend of November that’s going to let Austin flaunt its [food] stuff: The Gypsy Picnic!
