A Story By

Hey Austin!

Can you believe we are heading into the last weekend of January already? Time flies when you’re having a good time and with all of the awesome things to do in Austin every week we see no sign of time slowing down any time soon. With that being said we hand-picked plenty of exciting and safe activities happening this week!

Be sure to check out what’s all happening in Austin this February down below. As always, we hope you have a wonderful week and if we missed something reach out to us through Instagram and let us know!

What's New:

As we are all aware by now, we are heading into the FINAL weekend of January 2021. With that being said we have our eye on a new month filled with new things to do in Austin. It’s time to clear your schedules, mark your calendars, and buy your tickets because we’ve got a good one coming. Here is your overview of the best happenings in February.

Up first we have THE football game. Austin doesn’t have a professional football team so why is this a big deal you ask? For those of you who don’t have a team to root for you have hilarious commercials to watch, great food to eat, and delicious drinks to drink. Consider watching the game at a local sports bar or pick up snacks and beer from a local restaurant or brewery!

Next up, we have the mushiest, gushiest day of the year, Valentine’s Day! This is your friendly reminder to make reservations (like yesterday) if you are looking to dine in somewhere. If you are looking for other unique ideas to spend this day of love then you are in the right spot. Head over to our Valentines in Austin Guide and get to planning. 

Fun fact, did you know that Valentine’s Day is the 5th most popular day for couples to get engaged on? 

Nest on the agenda is one of our favorite annual events, Cookies & Craft Brews! Hosted by Circle Brewing, they are taking the event virtual this year. Enjoy an evening of Girl Scout Cookie and beer pairings.
