3. Shakey Graves at Stubbs
If there’s one thing we are most excited about, it’s live music in Austin coming back! And too help kickoff what’s going to be a great year for shows, Shakey Graves will be playing at Stubbs this weekend. It may be sold out by the time you read this, but who said you can’t search for tickets other places? Gotta do what you gotta do to see some great bands play!
🗓 June 17-18 | 7PM-8PM
📍801 Red River St., Austin, TX 78701
4. Sundown Swim at Austin Proper
Oh, man, the sun sure is hot. There’s only one cure to cooling down and that’s taking a dive right into a pool! Luckily, Austin Proper Hotel is letting the public in for $50+. But before you go on and say that’s a little too much to spend at a pool day, think about the 5th floor sunset views, a dj spinning all the hits and delicious bites and drinks. We think it’s pretty worth it!
🗓 June 19 | 7PM-10PM
📍 600 W 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701
5. The Roosevelt Room Masterclass
Skip out on brunch for something different! You’re friends are going to be amazed that you made them plans to go do a class on Gin & Juniper Spirits. How cool is that? Tickets are $85, and that includes 8 spirits tastings.
🗓 June 20 | 12PM-2:30PM
📍 307 W 5th St, Austin, TX 78701

We’re always down for a free yoga class, and this one at the Riley is no exception. Hosted by Black Swan Yoga and Austin Private Yoga, this outdoor class is sure to keep you relaxed. Whatever the weather may be, they’re are prepared. Don’t forget to bring your own mat!

Local Business Spotlight
There’s a new burger joint in town and it’s oh, so, delicious!
ATX Sliders revved up their food truck last week and we got a chance to go check out what they’re all about. The gourmet sliders come in a range of options, including beef, fried chicken, grilled chicken, and even veggie. What really stands out though is the way they named each burger. You’ll quickly notice the Zilker Zinger, The Longhorn, and The Lady Bird. How fun, right!?
They close out their menu with fries, chips, and queso, in true Austin fashion. Find them outside the Saxon Pub, and click the button below to check out their entire menu!
More Things to Do in Austin
Austin Pets Alive! Pet of the Month
Introducing, our second APA! pet of the month. 6-year-old Tux is playful, loving, and cuddly. He’s also been housebroken since being in a foster home. What a good, beautiful boy!
If you’re looking for a companion, who’s a people-lover and loves walks with you, but also very independent enough to stay home alone, bring Tux home! If you’re interested in adopting him, visit the APA! website. We can’t guarantee that Tux will still be available by the time you read this so be sure to reach out asap. Look at him, what a handsome fella!
Raise A Day for APA!
If you’re not quite ready to adopt, donate for Raise A Day for APA! Every June 15, APA! opens their doors (through social media) to give an inside look at their shelter and all the amazing things they do for the pets. During which, you can help them reach their goal of $37,000. Every little bit will help, so donate what you can!
