Events This Weekend

In Austin we always say shop local because there’s just so many unique and neat finds from local artists. This Saturday, over 20 vendors will set up to benefit a local non-profit, while you get to have a fun shopping trip outdoors at The Far Out Lounge. Your purchases will help them raise money for NAMI Central Texas (National Alliance on Mental Illness). The event is completely free, family friendly,  and dogs are welcome!

Local Business Spotlight

It’s National Wine Day this week and we really want for you to enjoy some wine until the weekend comes around. We went to check out Wanderlust in downtown and the space is so cute. Even better though was the wine and the way you get it served! It’s all on tap and you get to pour it yourself. It’s super simple. Insert your card, grab a glass and pour whichever one you want to try. You’ll get charged based on how much your pour is.

They have 56 wines from around the world!  International wine sounds delightful right in our neck of the woods, especially since we can’t jet off to Bourdeaux anytime soon. Check them out. You won’t be disappointed and most likely a little tipsy on the way out. We don’t judge!
