Cousin's Night 2015
Hiking and Craft Beer Pub Crawl
Important Agenda and Travel Info
Once assembled, caravan to Cedar Ridge Preserve, a slice of the hill country just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. 7 total can fit in Kathe's car. I'm NOT DRIVING her car, though any of you are welcome to! If everybody comes, we will need 2 cars.
**There is no fee to enter the park, but a $3 donation is suggested.
3:30: Finish hike, Eat Tacos (I'll bring the tacos, though if everyone prefers, we can eat at Fuel City tacos on the way back to drop of J & K)
4:30: Return Jackson & Kevin to their homes
5:00: Commence Pub Crawl
Abbey offered to DD using Kathe's car, so she will be our chauffeur for the evening. She'll leave us either at the last pub or the pub of our choice, and will head out to her other party. The rest of us can Uber home whenever we choose! And if we choose to make a late night of it and end up at The Goat, I will not be sad!
