This past weekend, I represented the Newhouse Center at a reception following the Modern Language Association (MLA) Convention in Austin, Texas. The business trip was a great chance to explore the city on Friday and Saturday.
After checking in my hotel, I indulged in brunch at Gloria’s, a restaurant featuring Salvadorian, Tex-Mex cuisine and $4 Margaritas- an unheard of phenomenon in Boston. Once I checked brunch off of my checklist, I visited the State Capitol adorned with incredible architecture and serene surroundings only worthy of Texas. I even made it to Free for Y’all, an installment in Austin’s Free Week, a free concert series during the first week of January featuring upcoming local acts.
Leaving Sunday felt too soon. But the break was much needed to start 2016. Can’t wait to see what this new year brings.
