We started things off with an adult bev at the Jester King Brewery a little outside downtown. Things were really festive with a 2 washboard band:

The creepy taps:
The next day we went in search of food around lunchtime and came across a bar called Jackalope. I ordered a most interesting Pulled Pork Pizza. Definitely a wise decision. It was so big it took up most of the table and I definitely didn't finish it, but it was crazy good. The service was eh, but I think she had a lot of tables to cover and we weren't in any sort of hurry.
In case you were wondering what a jackalope might look like:
Next, Rob agreed to go to the Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary with me! I love zoos! This was a very small zoo with lots of random animals, but very cool in that you are super close to all the animals since it's so informal. And it had me experiencing flashbacks to St. Mary's College with all the peacocks that were running around.
They had a ton of wolves and husky/wolf mixes:
They totally knew I was coming:
Lioness napping (no zoom):
Jaguar chilling in the sun (again no zoom):
Mountain goats escaping the pigs in their pen:
Crazy peacock on the move:
