Rosie saw “Shaun of the Dead” (2004) through Alamo Drafthouse’s “Ghouls Night Out” this weekend. “Hocus Pocus,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Clue” and “Beetlejuice” are some of the other upcoming classics returning for a frightfully fun evening at the theater. Pro Tip: if you think you’re going to be hungry, go ahead and order food when you get your tickets! You can only ask for extras (straws, ketchup, etc.) when you actually arrive to the theater at this time, and all food and drinks come in to-go containers.
Rosie also checked out a new park on her weekly Sunday bike ride with friends. Even if you’re new to biking, Austin’s BCycle program makes it really easy!
Popular Italian spot Andiamo Ristorante launched a new lounge within their space and Steph went for a date night with her husband.
