Deep Eddy cocktails, live music and food trucks are what’s in store for Live at Deep Eddy Distillery.

If you have not made it out to the new distillery, here is a great way to spend an afternoon. While you’re poolside, Deep Eddy Vodka just launched their Lemon vodka, and it feels like sipping summer in a drink. So be sure to try one of those cocktails while you’re out there.

This is one of the day parties that are worth checking out. Waterloo just does it right.

They have solid music all day, plus they are free and open to the public. Luckily the weather cleared so there is no excuse not to be outside enjoying this fantastic Spring Break weather. The shows are on their outdoor stage and normally bring quite the crowd. It is the place to stop by if you are looking for free, outside, music and fun. Locals know that Waterloo knows music.

Here is the line-up for the week.

For those that want to enjoy SX but skip the downtown scene I’d recommend South By San Jose. Hotel San Jose is one of my favorite spots in town as they make a mean cocktail and have a chill relaxed feel.

During SX they transform their parking lot into a live music venue with vendors and concessions. It becomes one of the most happening places on South Congress during SX.

Here is a peak at this year’s killer line-up.
