Via 313 has made Austin a better place by serving up the most amazing Detroit-style pizza, and now the sky has opened up and the angels are singing and they’ve announced that they are bringing us brunch pizza starting this Sunday at their Craft Pride location.
And not just that, Craft Pride has created a signature beer cocktail menu to compliment this deliciousness.
Here’s the list of cocktail/pizza pairings so you can ready your appetite for the big day:
Martin House Brewing Company True Love is the base for this mulled brew. Flavors of fall spice combine with a Raspberry sour ale to produce a sweet and sour treat. Dressed with a cranberry rim and garnished with an edible hibiscus leaf.
Pairs excellently with B.B.E: A Detroit Style French Toast Pizza
Cherry Lime Sour
Independence Brewing Co. Redbud Berliner-Weisse gives life to a cherry limeade made just for adults. Packed with real cherry and a bright lime flavor reminiscent of the drive-in treat. Garnished with a dried cherry wrapped in a fresh petite mint leaf
Pairs excellently with The Austinite: Cheese and Over-Medium Eggs are layered on a Hashbrown crust and crowned with a Salsa Verde.
A drink inspired by the Mexican Cerveza Preparada tradition. Our take is spicy, savory, and just a little sweet. Made with Dallas Blonde from Deep Ellum Brewing Company and garnished with chile lime dusted salami and a Spanish olive.
Pairs excellently with Pepper Adams: Calabrese and Over-Medium Eggs on every slice and topped with Fresh Arugula and Shaved Parmesan.

If you’ve discovered the weirdly addicting fun of Topgolf (you really don’t have to be a golfer to love it) then get excited, because the company is taking their experience to Circuit of the Americas for the Topgolf Crush Grand Prix. Come enjoy food, drinks, and music while you crush golf balls on top of the legendary Turn 1 hill at COTA at giant targets on the field.

Topgolf’s Toptracer Range technology, which is not yet available at TopgolfAustin, tracks the flight path of the golf balls and instantly scores every shot! That’s fancy. There will also be other games to play while you wait for your tee time. And of course a live DJ will spin every day throughout the weekend.
When: October 18-22 (Private corporate events can be booked for Oct. 18-19, and the event will be open to the public from Oct. 20-22.)
Time: Daily from 9 a.m. – midnight

Before we get into the holiday swing and start thinking about buying new things, and eating all the things, let’s do something good for our bodies and souls! Wanderlust is bringing Wanderlust 108, billed as the world’s only “mindful triathlon,” to Austin on November 11!
What is a mindful triathlon, you might be asking? It’s a 5K run (or walk) through The Travis County Expo Center, followed by a DJ-powered outdoor yoga class, with a guided meditation for the finale. Mindful triathletes will also enjoy music, artisanal vendors, local foods, and many surprises throughout the day.
In addition to the main events, participants can add a scheduled bonus class such as aerial yoga, acro-yoga, hooping, walking meditation, photography or essential oils workshops, or a community yoga experience from favorite local teachers. At all Wanderlust 108 events, the Kula Marketplace will showcase local craft vendors, including clothing, jewelry, and handcrafted items. Local and organic food vendors will be on site, as well as a retail store and juice bar collaboration between Wanderlust and adidas housed in a 60-foot geodesic dome.
In 2017, Wanderlust events will take place in over 60 cities in more than 17 countries on 5 continents. Their mission is to help you find your true north—to cultivate your best self! Sign us up!

There’s a hay pyramid to climb, a tunnel to crawl through, a tractor to explore, play house for imaginations to run wild, tree swing to fly like a bird, and lots of room to run and play.
Bring a picnic and stay a while and hang with their mini horse and mini donkey, Shorty and Spot! It’s the perfect fall family day.
