Ashley Alkek - The Austinot

Austin improv is thriving, as is the city's dating scene. If you put the two together, you get one hell of a improv comedy show called Missed Connections ATX, at ColdTowne Theater. If you aren't familiar with the term, I urge you to take a look at your local Missed Connections section on Craigslist.

A long journey to find kindness

"She's so good to me" Davie said while smiling brightly at Natalie, her Helper Bee. Natalie H. has the gift of kindness, she has been a Helper Bee since the beginning and she's been working with Davie for around five months. We thought their deep connection and a great match on our side, needed a place in our blog.
