Austin/Vibeclipse: 3-10

California 10-17

My NYC Bingo market was really fun (and my affinity for marketable scavenger hunts remains high) so I'm back for another round:

I've suddenly decided to go to Vibeclipse - April 5-8 near Austin, TX

I'm still confirming travel to Southern California, but it would be somewhere around 9-15th ish.

Open for responses! Add suggestions of things I should do/see, or things you think I may encounter during my trip - you'll get trader bonuses every time someone bets on your options. If you prefer, comment with a suggestion and I'll add it for you.

Relevant bits:

  • I'll fly into Austin a day or two before the event - it will be my first time there.

    • The event is ~90 minutes west of Austin.

  • Vibeclipse has shared sleeping cabins. I'm liable to get a hotel or other (non-airbnb) accommodation on either side of the event.

  • I expect at least a day or two in Austin - possibly more if I don't head to California afterward - so options related to the city are welcome.

  • I'm traveling solo, but have a couple of friends who will likely be at VC (they will not resolve the "old friend" option).

  • I plan to rent a car for all or part of the trip.

  • I'm not much of a "top things to do in..." type, and keen for some more irreverent suggestions for the city/cities I visit.

    • feel free to add things that can happen without my intention/intervention like "witness a breakup" or "encounter a protest"

  • I know it's Texas but: I'll NA any really meaty options because that's an easy No resolution. I'm not strictly Veg but I'm not going to go for Texas BBQ.

  • I'll take photos for posterity when I can.

I'd like to resolve lots of Yes answers! I'll bet on this market in the direction I think is most likely and won't change my bet at a late stage. I will adjust bets as time goes on, though, to reflect what seems realistic.

I'll resolve n/a at my discretion but count on it for junk or spam answers including really easy Yeses (yes, I plan to wake up each day) or really easy Nos (no, I won't heckle anyone at Rogan's comedy club) or absurd/impossible ones (no, I'm not going to go to McGregor and force my way onto the launch pad for a selfie). just play nice and add real things, okay? 🧡

If you want to take some inspiration from past travel bingo markets:




Get Ṁ200 play money
Sort by:
Get a second VC Bingo at any time on trip

I'm disturbingly close to getting a second (and third) VC bingo 🚀

Go to Kindred death metal bar/brunchery (SD)

nice rec @CommanderZander what should I eat? (@Lion will be happy to know they have a menu item literally called "Good Soup")

@shankypanky I actually don't remember anything in particular, just had a nice brunch here!

@shankypanky Tss, there is literally good soup and you ask what to eat!?! wtf

@Lion I can't live on only a small cup of tomato soup!

@shankypanky It might be just a small cup of tomato soup, but it comes with an endless portion of soup love 🧡

[Or just order two...]

@shankypanky 🧡 =🍲

it all comes back to soup

@Joshua 😮‍💨

@Joshua mixed messages and I can't tell if you like it or not call it a Thrill Issue

bought Ṁ10 Hear someone groan f... YES

@Joshua free alpha and I haven't even bet call it a Good Will Issue

@Joshua get it while it's hot

Go to Balboa Park in San Diego and see someone feeding the giant goldfish

I'm here and I think this is discouraged lol

eclipse view obstructed or diminished by bad weather/clouds

@shankypanky How was the view?

Go to Kindred death metal bar/brunchery (SD)
bought Ṁ10 Go to Kindred death ... YES

nice add - looks like I have three things in Balboa Park on the list so seem like all three are doable (as long as someone is there feeding goldfish) today

Info about my Timken answer:
This is pretty cool but only happens Thursdays & Fridays. The Timken (in Balboa Park) is a very nice museum on other days too ofc.

@CommanderZander oh no I'll have to go today or never!

@CommanderZander I like this suggestion btw! looks like I can go do this between 1-4p today so I'll try to head down this afternoon and check it out. 🖼

Pick a food to order



bought Ṁ150 go to the Chili's at... NO

alas, not enough time for the Comedy Mothership and I predictably didn't go to the Wildflower Center (I didn't rent a car after all) so both of these Austin-specfic things resolve No.

I'm off to the airport in a few hours so there's still a chance I get a Sweetheart or Darlin' (I'm hopeful)

"ma'am" would have been a much easier win, as it turns out
