Tito's! Cafe Nó Sé! Eastciders! Thai Fresh! Chameleon Cold Brew! So much more!) while you hobnob with all the milling artlovers and support this superlative Big Medium event in its sixth year. Thu., May 11, 7-10pm (2017), $65 ($110, couples)

    Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Rd., 512/974-4000

    • It's … it's … HIDEOUTRAGEOUS!

      There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows here. This Thursday brings you the Threefer and Free Fringe of improv, and you can check out that award-winning Parallelogramophonograph (hot off their European tour) and the fancy-ass Big Bash and more on Friday, and dig the Goonies-flavored goodness of How I Saved the World Over Summer Vacation on Saturdays, right after the Eighties-evoking police drama of Buddy Cop and right before that extemporaneous donnybrook that mortals call Maestro. See website for more. $5-15

      The Hideout Theatre, 617 Congress, 512/443-3688
