Kristy Owen - 365 Things to Do in Austin, TX

Kristy Owen

I am a realtor here in Austin, and clients are always asking for suggestions on what to do around town. So, I thought I would blog about my experiences, recommendations and what you have to do before you can call yourself a true Austinite.

This will be an epic night of Saved By the Bell ’90s tropes and you really don’t want to miss the fun. Togas and themed costumes are highly encouraged! It’s free to play and you can sip on appropriately themed drinks the whole time. Get your team of up to six players organized—and start thinking of a really clever team name, because the competition will be intense.

Time: 6:30 p.m.
