Don’t forget, this Friday is the big event for all you Public Citizen Texas fans out there.  We’ll be hosting our 25th anniversary party at Austin’s own Barr Mansion on Friday, November 6th.  This is a two-part, multiple option event, so listen carefully:

PART ONE: Schoozefest Dinner Party, 6-9 pm.

For all you high-rollers out there, come out early to a celebratory dinner and awards presentation from 6-9 pm.  Cost is $75/person or $125 for a couple.

PART TWO: Party Party, 9pm – midnight

From 9pm to midnight, join us for a Public Citizen “hoedown” and mixer with a top secret (but awesome!) musical guest and FREE BEER.  Yes, that’s right FREE BEER!  Did I mention the FREE BEERTickets are $19.84 in advance (we were founded in 1984, natch) or $25 at the door… but that’s really a steal considering the Free Beer don’t you think?

By promoting cleaner energy, cleaner government, cleaner cars, and cleaner air for all Texans, we hope to provide for a healthy place to live and prosper. We are Public Citizen Texas.

Did you doubt my magic?  Think that we wouldn’t get any music for our 25th anniversary celebration and that you’d have to listen to Citizen Sarah muddle through Oh My Darlin’ on the baby squeezebox?

Lucky for y’all my lovelies, my nightly practice sessions have been for naught (not sure if that will be any consolation to my housemates).  We have a headliner.  And how!  David Garza is going to play our show!

David (that’s DAH-VEED) Garza is a locally grown singer-songwriter who… what’s the word? Rocks. Out. Whoo!

Ohhhhhhh yeahhhhh.  It’s gonna be a good time.  If you haven’t been to Barr Mansion before, he’ll be playing in the greenhouse — a beautiful old building with a big wooden stage, killer acoustics, and a nice intimate setting with plenty of room for groovin’ and shakin’.

So save the date for November 6th!  The show will start around 9, and tickets are just $19.84 in advance (since Public Citizen was founded in 1984, natch) or $25 at the door.  We’ll have a bar set up for the beer of your choice.

If you’re feeling fancy, you’re also welcome to the dinner that we’ll hold before hand from 6-9.  That will start out with a brief schmoozefest and cocktail hour, and then we’ll move in for dinner, speeches, and an awards ceremony for recipients of our Texas Outstanding Public Servant (TOPS) awards.  Local dignitary and America’s #1 populist Jim Hightower will emcee, and you’ll also have a chance to meet our new Public Citizen president Rob Weissman.  Dinner tickets are $75 per person or $125 for a couple and can be purchased at www.citizen.org/TXRSVP (tickets to David are included in that, you won’t have to buy an extra).

To listen to more David Garza tunes, check out his official website or listen to his artist playlist from ACL.

Come on out to the Barr Mansion in Austin, TX on November 6th for an evening of music, drinks, and delicious organic snacks.  We’re going to have a TOP SECRET SPECIAL MUSICAL GUEST which won’t be a secret as soon as I know who it is (wink).  If you trust my judgment and ability to make magic happen, go ahead and buy an advance ticket for $19.84… or wait if you must, but tickets at the door will be $25.

We’re going to have a blast no matter what though, and that’s what matters most!

Plus, there’s a 23% chance I’ll dress as Ladybird Liberty, our mascot.  Wouldn’t want to miss that!
