    Holiday Tree Recycling

    For city of Austin curbside customers, recycling a holiday tree is as easy as setting it at the curb by 5:30am on the regularly scheduled compost collection day. Trees that are 6 feet or taller must be cut in half. Everyone is welcome to drop off their trees at Zilker on one of three collection days: Sat., Dec. 31; Sat., Jan. 7; or Sun., Jan. 8, 10am-2pm. Volunteers are also needed for those days, if you're still in the giving spirit! Trees collected at Zilker will be turned into mulch and available for free on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Jan. 12, 9am. Get more deets online.
    Dec. 26-Jan. 8
    Curbside or at Zilker Park Polo Fields, 2225 Andrew Zilker Rd.

    Scratch Chapel

    "Are you an artist in need of a sanctuary to have new or experimental works heard? Are you yearning for a space to pray your prose so that the creative gods may show you your next step? Are you seeking shelter from spaces and organizations which promote product over process? Then, rejoice – Scratch Chapel is here!" It's an open mic situation every first Monday of the month, basically, where the Sahara Lounge "converts into a sanctuary (with a bar) for creatives," as hosted by Purdy Mischief. Performative freedom, passionate intensity, lights tripped fantastically, and if it's good enough for the likes of Todd Mein to stake a claim (and it is), then we say HELL YES! Show up to sign up.
    Mon., Jan. 2, 9pm. Donations accepted.
