Hello _____!

This is part of a series on dealing with the stress of being arrested. It is not specifically related to your case.

Have you ever imagined living in one of those legendary boomtowns: San Francisco during the gold rush? Detroit during the automobile peak? Or Deadwood, South Dakota (with Wild Bill Hickok)?!? That would have been exciting, right?

Well, you are living in one right now! Austin is a BOOMTOWN. We are living during an extraordinary time in this city.

How do we take advantage of this energy and excitement? How about meeting new groups of people and trying new things?

One of my favorite internet sites is This is not a dating site :-) This is a site that lists hundreds of free group meetups for all types of interests: art, business, sports, crafts, outdoors, adventures, etc. It is a great resource to shake up your routine. Do something you wouldn't normally try. Meet new people.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

Here are three meetups that look interesting to me:

1. Austin Improv Connection Meetup

2. Austin Hiking for Tacos

3. Here's a whole bunch of book clubs!

You should look at all the different types of meetups Austin has. It is amazing. It's like we're living in a boomtown. :-)

I hope you find this useful. As always, call us if you have any questions.
