This new small batch brewery has been putting on a grand opening celebration since yesterday and today is the big finale! Let’s welcome them to the city properly, shall we?
Eater Austin has the backstory on this new women-led downtown brewery. Come for kolaches, live music, merch, and stay for the release of their first four beers. The inaugural brews are: Belgian Wit, Belgian Pale Ale, French Saison and Ultra Limited Hazy IPA. Drink up, y’all!
And if stopping by this place makes you thirsty for a Sunday Funday tour de beers, check out our Austin Brewery Guide for many more of our local favs.
This city is naturally beautiful and lively and full of interesting people—that’s why we love it. But if you want to see Austin in a whole new way, you should really get on two wheels. This Friday, wake up, ditch the car commute, and get on that cute little bike of yours. Spandex optional.
It’s Austin’s Bike to Work Day! Go alone or join a group ride to kick start your weekend. And don’t worry about sweating or looking disheveled when you get to work—everybody is doing it! Wear that helmet hair like a badge of honor.
When you are cruising on Lake Austin at sunset and sipping on an ice-cold beer, it’s like you just fall in love with this city all over again! Take your happy hour out on the water and experience the beauty and fun of this place in a whole new way. We’ve partnered with Float On and Independence Brewing Co. to offer the booze cruise of your dreams!
Organize your pals and join us on Thursday, May 16th! The trip starts just minutes from downtown at Walsh Landing and heads toward the 360 Bridge. Enjoy a slow troll through a semi-private grotto called Little Venice and take in the gorgeous Austin Country Club where all the greatest golfers compete in Dell Match Play. We’ll end up in Bull Creek Cove, aka Party Cove where you can float your cares away on Aqua Lily Pads. Please don’t miss out on this weeknight escape. You’ll be so sad if you do!

Today is a marvelous day for an Austin tradition like no other, Eeyore’s Birthday. This is day that our city pays tribute to the ever-so-famous and dependably pessimistic character from Winnie-the-Pooh.
It’s also a kid-friendly event. Artists will be offering face painting and temporary tattoos, and groups will be selling food, soft drinks, juices, Texas beer, and more. Eeyore’s Birthday is one of the city’s most fun and well-known cultural events. It also serves as a fundraiser to benefit nonprofit groups in Austin.
Just when you are old enough to get really good at egg hunting, you are apparently too old. Well, no more! This year you are going to dominate!

So prep your cascarones and get ready to feel like a kid again.
When: Today, April 21st
Time: noon–10 p.m.
Location: The Jackalope South Shore, 1523 Tinnin Ford Rd. Austin, TX 78741
This annual Pet Parade on South Congress is beloved by all who have ever come across it—because it’s hard not to love animals parading down the street in ridiculously adorable outfits with a marching band.
It starts at Annie and ends at the Jo’s parking lot, where there will be a costume contest emceed by Lyndon’s twin and local celebrity chef Lou Lambert. The judges will be well-known locals like Dale Watson, Andy Langer, Steve Wertheimer, and others. Then you can hang out for a few hours to eat, drink, and ogle a lot of great looking animals while a band or two plays.
You can register your pet at the marching line or you can just march without competing. All proceeds go to the Austin Humane Society!
