October 11th – October 13th 

As another weekend of ACL festivities commences, we’re rallying ourselves for round two! But we’re also considering a few ACL-alternatives going on this weekend:

What: ACL Kayak Trips
When: Friday, Oct 11th, 6:30pm
Where: Live Love Paddle, 1602 E Riverside Dr
Why: It seems like the hardest part about ACL is actually getting there. Lamar is an anxiety attack waiting to happen, parking is non-existent, and your poor little feet can only take you so far! But no need to fear, we’ve found an interesting solution via Austin’s waterways: kayaking. Paddle down right behind the stage and cast anchor to enjoy the sounds of

Downtown Development Digest

Introducing The Seaholm Neighborhood: New Center for Downtown Living  

On the north shore of Lady Bird Lake sits one of Austin’s most iconic structures, the Seaholm Power Plant. In the early 1950’s when this art-deco structure was originally constructed, the city of Austin was a much different place. Throughout the decades this quiet capital city of 132,000 people has transformed into a bustling metropolis of nearly two million. Yet, through the midst of all the development and change, this stoic structure has remained relatively untouched by Austin’s progression. The time has finally come to make use of this historic beauty. The past is re-envisioned to preserve a key piece of Austin’s beloved culture and history

What: Banger’s Oktoberfest 2013
When: Saturday, Sept 21st, 11 am & Sunday, Sept 22nd, noon
Where: Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden, 79 & 81 Rainey St
Why: Sprechen Sie German? Neither do the folks at Bangers, but that won’t stop them from going all out for Oktoberfest 2013. The only German you need under your belt is “beer,” “brats,” and “more beer, bitte!” (An occasional “danke” to the fellow filling your stein probably wouldn’t hurt either!)

 

What: Southern Brunch
When: Saturday, Sept 22nd,
Where: Springdale Farm, 755 Springdale Rd.
Why: TRIBEZA Style Week 2013 is in full motion, but this year they

Austin Bike Share
9/10/13

Attention all urban core dwellers, your lives are about to have an amazing transformation! This year the bike share program is coming to Austin. This means the city is providing a new, efficient and highly time effective way of commuting within downtown Austin.

Austin’s urban core is a dense community spanning approximately 3 miles by 3 miles... a completely bikable range. Rather than having to sit in traffic for 40 minutes to commute to a meeting that is just a mile away, plus spend another 20 minutes trying to find parking, now you can jump on one of these new urban bikes and spend a fraction of the time.

Here’s how it works- pick up a bike in one location, ride to your destination,
