Hey there, Austin

We love that we’re in the full swing of fall and are always looking for things to do in Austin as the seasons change. We’re definitely trying to make the most of what’s left of 2020; even if the annual events that we love aren’t coming around this year, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for activities that we think you’ll love.

Have You Heard?

Did someone say charcuterie!?

Do you plan your dinner outing or happy hour adventure based on which restaurant has the best charcuterie board? If so, then we totally get it, you’re a cheese head like us. Rather than doing Google search after search, check out our latest blog on the top charcuterie boards in Austin. 

These five boards will basically change your life. If you think we’re being dramatic try them for yourself and let us know what you think! If you’re looking for things to do in Austin tonight, snacking on these platters should be at the top of your list.

Austin Events This Weekend:

Vibe ATX is a celebration of creatives of color in Austin. A special 2-hour set will be curated and played as a silent disco at multiple outdoor venues across the city. You have to bring your own headphones, but there will be free refreshments while they last! If you prefer to indulge in the culture from the comfort of your home, the event will be live-streamed so you can dance along in your living room. In addition to music, the night will feature multimedia art and spoken word performances.

Has anyone else picked up plant parenting as their quarantine hobby?! We’ve become addicted to perfecting our green thumbs.

Quick Recap:

Pet Paradise VIP Party

Last week, we went to the Pet Paradise Georgetown VIP Party to celebrate their grand opening… and we had so much fun! Our Stuff to Do in Austin team mascot, Maya, couldn’t get enough of the canine-approved amenities. It’s hard to say what was her favorite part! She loved racing around on the turf, because of course, she had to run out the zoomies. The staff loved playing with our pets and definitely showed some puppy love. Maya took a dip in the indoor dog bone-shaped pool and loved showing off her swimming skills. We learned that when you book a VIP stay for your dog, you get tons of extra perks like pictures and videos of your pet throughout their stay, and a bath before they come home! We loved our time checking out Pet Paradise’s newest location, and your four-legged friends are sure to feel the same. Check it out!

📍 716 S. Interstate 35
