Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Thursday was not only Cinco de Mayo, it was also 05-05-05… in honor of such an occasion (more like any excuse we could find), a group of us met to celebrate things Austin, TX style…

(Popular Austin scenesters the Collier sisters kick back at Vivo, where we met up to have Cinco de Mayo margaritas at the bar. Heather, left, owns Collier Talent Agency while Erin, right, is the marketing guru at The Austin Chronicle.)

(Austin comedian Rob Nash begins his one-man show, 12 Steps to a More Dysfunctional Family, at the Vortex Theater on Thursday night. Despite his place on the Austin comedy scene, I only met Rob for the first time back in October when his friend, filmmaker Jonathan Caouette, came to town to screen his amazing documentary Tarnation. All you New Yorkers, take note: Rob’s one-man show, Holy Cross Sucks! will be premiering off-Broadway at Ars Nova on September 9.)

(After Rob’s great show, our group headed to popular East Austin hangout, Long Branch Inn, for drinks. Rob, myself, and local filmmaker/actress Elise “Reel Women” Ballard hang out. This pic was taken by Heather Collier, who coincidentally happens to be Rob’s local agent.)
