We are so excited that the Austin City Limits Music Festival is upon us. Starting this Friday, 130+ bands will take to the stages set up in beautiful Zilker park, providing 3 days of music and fun. In honor of the festival, Mission Mortgage will be posting suggestions this week from various employees, past clients, partners and friends. We will share information about the bands we are most looking forward to seeing, the food we can’t wait to enjoy, and even some memories of years past. We hope you enjoy this series and we invite you to add your own suggestions to the comment section below.
Today’s first set of suggestions come from Ami, our Loan Closer here at Mission Mortgage. Thanks, Ami, for sharing your suggestions with us.
ACL is a great event and I’m looking forward to being out at Zilker Park for another year! And the weather looks like it will be much nicer this year.
Out of all of the great performers, I’m most anxious to see The Black Keys, Sonic Youth, The Strokes, and Monsters of Folk. I’m also looking forward to Muse, Broken Bells, Band of Horses, and The National. And when it comes to all that yummy local food, my favorite is the Chicken Cone from Hudson’s on the Bend.
[Editor’s note: That’s our second piece of praise for the Hudson Mighty Cone…please see our previous blog post about where you can try these without going to the festival! We wrote about this wonderful treat in our Austin Gems section. Click here to read more about it.]
We’ve also had some recommendations from others and we noticed a trend…so we’re sharing all of those below:
Cindy, one of our Loan Officers, is looking forward to seeing The Eagles.
Connie, our Shipping Coordinator, recommends seeing The Eagles.
Mike, our Senior Vice President, isn’t going to the festival. But if he did, he’d most want to see The Eagles.
Amy L., a facebook friend, is most excited about seeing The Eagles.
Rick, a VP here at Mission, is attending his first ACL Fest. He is mostly just looking forward to the festival, but did mention…that’s right…The Eagles.
Check back tomorrow for more recommendations. We’ll see you at the festival!
