It’s the last day of June. What will you do to make it special? Google “Landon Donovon shirtless?” Throw darts at a picture of Steve Blow? Weird, me too. But all that arm usage is sure to make me hungry. Since I’m still working downtown (until Friday), I am going to check out the Lily Pad Cafe in the Main Street Garden. After a delay due to vandalism, The Pad (hmm, maybe not the best nickname), has finally opened. The restaurant has everything from breakfast tacos to Niman Ranch hot dogs to organic fat-free yogurt, and the prices are right (read: many items under $5). Or I might just wait until happy hour to head over there. They are pouring $3 sangria and serving Shiner and other beers in a can (yessss) for $2.
If I’m feeling really ambitious, I might sneak over to Fair Park to see Dreamgirls. I love love loved the movie, and judge if you want, I’m excited for the musical, which opens tonight. And not just because “One Night Only” was a theme song for my dating life until recently. The cast is full of Broadway veterans, and there’s even a dude who appeared on Diddy’s Making the Band. If you know me you know how special that is.
