[travel] A dinner in Austin

Hey, Austin peeps, I'm going to tentatively schedule a dinner for 6:30 tonight here in Austin. I'm going to need someone to pick me up, though (I've asked stina_leicht if she can help).

Let's say the Threadgill's on Riverside down near the Palmer Auditorium, 6:30 pm, Thursday 2/26. I will confirm here on the blog and via twitter as soon as I know for sure.
