Omni Austin Hotel Downtown
700 San Jacinto Blvd - Austin, TX 78701


Join fellow Austin SCBWI members for an evening of ghosts and ghouls on an Austin Ghost Tours Alleyways and Shadows Ghost Tour. It's sure to be a Wednesday Night Fright!

This Austin SCBWI social is for writers and illustrators to socialize with friends, make new connections and get to know more of the wonderful children's book creators in our chapter. This special Ghost Tour Social is also an opportunity to refuel your creativity. Who knows what kind of story or illustration ideas you'll get.

From the Austin Ghost Tours website: "The day ends, the shadows descend, the darkness is coming, and something distinctly untoward begins to stir in the alleyways, streets and passageways that lie at the heart of the Lone Star Capitol. Follow the phantom footsteps to the first Hospital in Austin, the old jailhouse location, the Capitol grounds, the Governor's Mansion, the Capitol grounds and of course the Driskill and much more!"

When: Wednesday, October 28th, 2015
What & Where: This private 90-minute tour begins by the stairs in the lobby of the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown (700 San Jacinto Blvd, 78701) @ 7:30pm. Where comfortable shoes, because this is a 90-minute walking tour.
Cost: $20.00 / person

Parking: The Omni Hotel has parking for $6.00 / hour. There is also parking around the Capitol. You can reach the Omni via Capitol Metro as well. Buses #803, #801, and #1 have stops less than half a mile away.

This will be a private tour, just for our group. But, we need to have at least 15 people to make it happen. Please register and pay below by Oct. 14 so we can make sure we'll have enough people. You can bring a friend or spouse too, so choose 1 or up to 4 spots in the registration form below. After we've received your registration, we'll ask you to send us the names of the attendees.

Please arrive by 7:15pm so the tour can leave on time. You won't need a ticket. We'll give the list of names to Austin Ghost Tours and they will check you in when you arrive.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
