2018 MotoGP Austin – Let’s Meet!

In Travel by AbhiLeave a Comment

4/19 Update: I’m bringing this post back to the front because I’ve now got a location in mind. Many thanks to reader Jack R, who spent some time scouting suitable locations for us to meet. We’re going to Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden! It’s close to Handbuilt (5 minute drive), won’t have live music going to drown out any conversations, and there’s indoor/covered outdoor seating (the weather might be pretty bad at the time). Hope to see you there!

Last year I tried to meet several of you during the weekend of MotoGP but to be frank, I had a low success rate. This year I’m going to try something different for those of you that want to say hi – Nathan and I are going to camp out at a bar/restaurant near the Handbuilt Show from 6pm-9pm on Saturday night. Come join us for a beer!

This is more of a heads up while we finalize a location – a local reader (the wonderful Jack R) is confirming a good spot as the weather forecast is predicting thunderstorms on Saturday evening. Once we have a location I’ll update this post, but I just wanted to let you know about the plan and the timing so you could pencil it into your calendars!

If you can’t make that, I’ll also probably be at the Handbuilt Show at the following times (no guarantees, though):
Thursday, April 19
7p-10p – Handbuilt Pre-Party at the South Congress Hotel – 1603 S Congress Ave, Austin TX
Friday, April 20
“Rizoma Behind the Build at the Handbuilt Show”
Handbuilt Show – 305 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704
Saturday, April 21
9pm-12am – Handbuilt Show – 305 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704
Sunday, April 22
7pm-10pm – Handbuilt Post-Party at Revival Cycles – 5305 Bolm Rd, Austin TX

Nathana and I look forward to seeing you there!
