#WTFwed: Nerd Nite, ZZ Top, MLK and pie

Hey Socialites,

We have a great week coming up in Austin! It starts tonight, Wednesday night, as it is Nerd Night at the North Door. Think of it as our very own Austin take on TED talks. #PERFECTION

Friday afternoon, Saturday AND Sunday = Home and Garden Show; which is a den full of dangers for me. I love to decorate and yet I have neither a massive house nor a massive budget for all of these “Oh! I could just put a new sink and lighting fixture….” plans. God grant me the sense to cut up my credit cards before I enter the Austin Convention Center to see all of the goodies inside…

Saturday night you can catch the ZZ top make-good concert or snag a seat at the My Life Speaks FUNdraiser with Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum, Colbie Cailet and more.

On Sunday I’m headed to the Alamo drafthouse to see Selma. I wish I didn’t feel like it would guide me/us in modern times – but I do – and I hope it does. Variety says the movie ends with, “the hope that the arc of the moral universe does indeed bend toward justice.” #countmein

On Monday, our offices are closed in observance of Martin Luther King day. Though some people will be volunteering to honor the legacy of MLK, you can bet your butt I’ll be eating pie and socializing. Gluten allergy be damned. Specifically, I’ll be at the Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church’s pie social, which is a part of the growing Peace Through Pie movement, to mark the occasion. Join me there? Honoring his legacy in another way? Be sure to tag your social media posts with #StatesmanSocial so we can connect and share.

In the meantime, check back in this Friday 1/16/15 for another #GoodToKnow episode!
