Alright. I've got a big table (15 people) booked for us outside on the patio for 4pm. The high's supposed to be 75 that day and she said the sunset's really nice from that vantage point. Happy hour is:

- 4-7
- $1 off drafts (huge draft selection)
- $3 house made margaritas (all natural, not the fake syrup crap)
- 1/2 price apps
- and the best part and I quote "F1 cars in the parking lot between 4-7"

......that's what she said and I asked her to clarify, but she said that's just what she was told, so we'll see! It'll probably be the previous year's cars as they were on display last year as well in downtown Austin.

Who's coming with their Lotus? Maybe I can get a special parking section for you guys.

Sounds great, wish I had the Lotus with me but those track lots are too dusty. Maybe I should leave the gang to their own transportation.

Lol. I'd feel a little nervous leaving mine in such a busy and crowded lot, especially when it'll be FAR out of sight for hours. Your call man.....obviously.

Hope to see you and your crew at Opal.

Btw:

For those of you that are coming to Opal Divine, ask to be seated with the Lotus Group out on the patio. That's what I made the reservation under.

Having a GP Edition sitting in the parking lot would certainly be fitting, wouldn't it?

yeah, I know .. last year Lotus shipped it down for some pre race charity stuff, I wasn't there but "she" got to hobnob with F1' cars and celebrities.

Opal Divine's Penn Field is only 12 miles from the track: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Opal+...8&z=13&iwloc=A .. so see you there!

To all of you Austinites; what are things like around town on the weekend of F1? Does the whole town get behind the race? I grew up in Adelaide (which is a sister city to Austin) when the Australian GP was there and every man and his dog was F1 mad when it was here. Sadly not the same for the now Melbourne race which is just another event in one corner of the city.

Anyway, I digress. Enjoy the race and I'm very jealous.
