I had such a great time today, and I was especially touched to get back to my email afterwards to find a note from one of the participants with some "action shots" from the presentation.

I love that I come across people who are delightfully kind and thoughtful, and I hope you'll join me in sharing some love right back. The nice person who sent this is the owner of Big Top Candy Shop on South Congress. Go get some fudge or rock candy this week--or get Ben's favorite: the chupacabra soda.

Let's taco bout how awesome Austin is...

This month OCMG traveled to Austin. Here are a few of the stops we made:

🥩 Steiner Ranch Steakhouse - The best sunsets overlooking Lake Travis, amazing steaks and seafood, and plenty of indoor and outdoor venue options for a spectacular event.

🍸 The Roosevelt Room - This swanky cocktail bar with a plethora of drinks and fancy nibbles will give a 1920s speakeasy vibe. It's perfect for a team building event with their make-your-own cocktail class.

🧇 Joann's Fine Foods - The menu is a tribute to diner culture featuring Tex-Mex favorites and California inspired healthy options. There’s something for everyone.

🍭 Big Top Candy Shop - Fun excursion for any group, this old-fashioned candy shop is a blast from the past and will remind you of your childhood.

⛰️ Mount Bonnell - Step into nature, no really, walk up approximately 100 steps for a little bit of exercise and a great view at the top!

🎵 We have also done some events in Austin in the past at ACL Live with Grammy Award Winning Artist Lucinda Williams. It was a rocking good time!

Let us help you plan your next adventure. Visit us at or call: 407-948-5706

Thanks for the hoard for my dragon cake. It was a big hit!

So come on out and enjoy a unique drive-in radio show featuring live ghost stories, shop the haunted holiday market with wares from local vendors, dine in devilish good eats, wander the ghostly trails of Pioneer Farms with our optional add-on audio ghost tour, and compete in our Deck the Cars vehicle decorating contest for a chance to win a festive prize donated by Big Top Candy Shop! You don’t want to miss this spooktacular seasonal event!

Tickets go on sale Saturday, Nov 21st at the stroke of midnight! Patreon supporters get 24 hour early access at midnight on Friday, November 20th! You can get full event details and ticket info at Stay tuned and stay restless! I hope we can see you on December 19th!
