Join in Austin’s first city-wide Living Room Picnic. Purchase a meal directly from a local restaurant, plus a bottle of wine, or 6-pack of beer, spread out a blanket, and enjoy from a safe social distance, the comfort of your living room.

Celebrate what makes Austin great—community—while supporting our local restaurants, bars, breweries, and makers. Participating restaurants include Antonelli’s, East Side King, Easy Tiger, Juliet, and tons more.

To set the mood, you can listen to Austin artists with a Spotify playlist curated by The SIMS Foundation, and even better, you can support local musicians by donating here.

Follow along, post about your picnic or give a shout out for your favorite restaurant, bar, brewery, or wineshop by tagging @atxlovelocal and #atxlivingroompicnic.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
