A whole latte love and so. much. more.

Serena Hicks

Hey y’all hey and welcome back to your latest WTF (Where’s the Fun) Wednesday video with my top picks for fun this coming week.

Wednesday: Starbucks introduces their first new latte flavor in FIVE YEARS. Welcome to the world, Chesnut Praline Latte! I can’t wait to find out what the fuss is all about. I’d love to know what you think so Insta or Tweet me @StatesmanSocial with your thoughts. 

Friday night family night – or if you’re just an old school nerd like me - don’t miss the opening night of the BBC’s "Walking With Dinosaurs": http://thingstodo.austin360.com/cedarpark/events/walking-dinosaurs-arena-s-/E0-001-070372039-8@2014111419

If Friday night is your Date Night, then you are going to looooooove The Brass House, which is co-owned by two Marines who once dreamed of moving to Austin and owning a jazz lounge. This place is easy on the eyes and has live jazz music starting at 6 p.m. Be sure you’re there by 9:30 p.m. when “Tish and The Mizzbehavin” take the stage. I mean, with a name like that, what’s not to love?! http://www.brasshouseaustin.net/calendar.html
