Austin’s First Haunted Bar Crawl

19 Oct

Long-time readers will remember the inaugural haunted bar crawl in Manhattan’s West Village. I’ve now brought the yearly tradition to Austin and shared my tentative route with the constituency of CultureMap.

Check out my article, “Drink and Be Scary,” here.

Remember this photo? I took it in the summer of 2011 at the West Village haunt, One If By Land, Two If By Sea.

What would you do if you only had one week left in New York City? Excellent question.

Responses are as varied as the people I’ve met in this great city and range from Turkish baths to botanical gardens, schmancy brunch spots, and endless amounts of walking. In my last week-and-a-half in New York, I want to really love this city. She’s been my constant companion for the past two-odd years and I want to do her right – no tears, no speeches, no cowering, no wimpering – just naked gratitude.

I’ll miss her, that’s for sure, but more for what she’s shown me; more for what I’ve learned about myself while living in this place; more for the wonderful people I’ve met; more for the life-long friends. New York has been very good to me – very good for me – and, for that, I could never feel sad.

When I say goodbye to New York, I will not only bid farewell to part of my life but also a piece of my heart.

Adieu, mon ami!
