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.

Today, February 27, Live welcomes the Whole Foods food truck from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., and live music from Ruby Jane Trio at 4:00 p.m.

Saturday, February 28, Live welcomes the Whole Foods food truck from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., and live music from Whiskey Shivers at 3:00 p.m.

I’m always up for a good cocktail so the opportunity to drink for a good cause is right up my alley. Tonight select venues on Rainey Street will be donating 10% of their revenue to Austin Child Guidence Center. All proceeds will go towards mental health services for underserved children in the Austin area. Funds will be matched during Amplify Austin (Austin’s 24 hours of giving event happening on March 5th)  to further their impact!

Participating venues include Royal Blue Grocery, Javelina Bar, Clive Bar, Container Bar, Bar 96, NoVa, Icenhauer’s, El Naranjo, Bunglow, Craft Pride, Half Step and The Blackheart.

Looking for more fun on Rainey, here is our Rainey Street Checklist.

Icenhauer’s has been my go-to spot recently. I can’t seem to get enough of Super Soul Sunday. However, it’s not just Sundays that they have fun activities happening. Wednesday evenings they have trivia night.

Trivia nights are one of my all time favorite activities; I envision myself yelling out answers to Alex Trebec, much to the disappointment of everyone around me. Trivia nights also usually wrap up by 10ish, so you can still make it home at a decent hour on a school night. They have great cocktails, prizes and it makes for an all around good night!

When: Wednesdays

Time: 8 pm

Name: Biscuit
Sex: Neutered Male   
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 5 Year Old 
Animal ID: A651686
Location: In Foster

All adoptions are only $40 the entire month of February at Austin Animal Center!

This Biscuit is so cute you could just eat him up! Biscuit is a gorgeous 5 year old neutered male who loves to snuggle, give hugs and get belly rubs. He gets his name from the fact that he “makes biscuits” with his paws whenever he gets petted. He’s a total lap cat who will hang out with his person every moment that he gets. In his previous home he lived with other cats, but he’d be quite happy to be an only cat, too; especially if his person was home a lot. Biscuit had urinary tract issues in the past, so he has some minor medical requirements. He should eat wet food and prescription dry food only. This will keep him from having future UTI problems.

Biscuts

If you’re interested in meeting Biscuit (ID# A651686), please contact his foster at elvissa@austin.rr.com

Please keep in mind that pets in our foster program are not on a first come, first served basis. The foster parent(s) may take several applications and meet with different applicants before they decide which would be the best fit for that particular animal.

 

If this is not the Pet of the Week for you please check out our other pets looking for forever homes.

  • Whole Foods

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    The Flagship location is the Disneyland of grocery stores, so it's easy to get lost shopping, dining at one of the many stations, or just wandering around. Samples? Yes please.

  • Bowling

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    Few things bring out my inner child like a good round of bowling. Check out Dart Bowl (North Central), Union Underground (Central) or Westgate Lanes (South). 

  • Blazer Tag

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    Blazer Tag is home to the largest lazer tag arena in the state, think three stories of bridges, ramps and towers.

  • iFly Indoor Skydiving

    By 365 Things To Do In Austin, Texas

    iFLY Austin is a state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel that provides a fun and safe way to experience true human body flight. This definitely appeals to those with an inner sense of adventure.

  • Waterloo Records

    The LBJ Presidential Library is located on the University of Texas campus. It even has a re-creation of the Oval Office from when Johnson was President.

The rumors are true, Austin’s own Ghostland Observatory will be ending a lengthy hiatus to headline this year’s Euphoria Music Festival. Co-headliners Pretty Lights, STS9, Thievery Corporation, and Adventure Club top a bill that is arguably the strongest top-to-bottom lineup in the history of the Austin electronic music festival arena.

“Expanding to a full three days of camping, coupled with our diverse lineup has allowed us to create an immersive festival experience unique not just to Texas, but to most festivals out there,” says Euphoria creative director Mitch Morales.  “We really want to emphasize our culture and show fans what sets us apart from the rest.”

Euphoria-Austin

The three-day festival will take place at the beautiful Carson Creek Ranch, just a few minutes east of downtown Austin. Festival-goers are encouraged to camp on the property to fully immerse themselves in the Euphoria experience.

For a full lineup, and to purchase a “very limited” number of $139 (3-day) pre-sale tickets, visit: http://www.euphoriafest.com/
