This is Austin, so you need to do two things on the first day of the year: eat some black-eyed peas and jump into Barton Springs! The natural springs pool stays at a constant 68 degrees throughout the year, so it’s typically warmer in the water.

The plan for you brave, adventurous, and typically hungover folks is to meet there at 11 a.m. and then take a group photo and video at 11:30 a.m. sharp.

When: Sunday, January 1st

Time: 11 a.m.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
