Opening Reception: Thursday, October 14, 6:30 p.m.
Whoop it up with your friends and colleagues at Buffalo Billiards, where you can take Texas Two-Step and line dancing lessons in between munching Texas nachos and sipping margaritas. Enjoy a tantalizing assortment of satisfying hors d'oeuvres and desserts. Dress is casual—your favorite boots or stompers recommended! No additional fee for conference registrants; guests $30 per person.
Texas Music Live! Friday, October 15, 4:00 p.m.
Join your colleagues for a showcase of supreme Texas talent. The Marshall Ford Swing Band dazzles with toe-tapping Western swing (and maybe even some bebop jazz). The young group Conteño, one of the best conjunto bands in south Texas, performs their own unique blend of Tejano, conjunto and Norteño music. Come ready to dance!
Dinner on your own—explore downtown: Friday, October 15, evening
Head out to nearby Sixth Street for a taste of Austin's renowned nightlife. Hear everything from jazz and reggae to country and rock! Restaurant offerings include some of the country's best barbecue and Tex-Mex as well as fine dining spots and outdoor eateries.

Stop by to hear some fine fiddlin' and other music native to West Virginia—host of NASAA's upcoming Fall Leadership Institute, October 19-21, 2011.
