    Eclipse Festival

    Apparently, the last time a total solar eclipse was visible from Central Texas was 1878. So what better place to celebrate this year’s eclipse than the living history museum that takes you back to 1800s Texas? Pioneer Farms offers two days of themed programming, including an old-timey medicine show, a chance to make your own cyanotype (sunprint) or eclipse viewer, and live music from Max and the Hot Pickin 57s at Monday’s Citizen Scientist Sun Party. During the eclipse, Pioneer Farms anticipates the opportunity to take note of its farm animals’ changes in behavior and actually hear the eclipse through a special device that makes it audible. Whoa. – Kat McNevins

      Total Eclipse Party

      Me-OW! In honor of this once-in-a-lifetime solar event, your friendly neighborhood kitsch bar opens at 11am for eclipse entertaining. Slip on a provided pair of free eclipse glasses and dip your toes into the pool on the patio located right at the “kitty” corner of Seventh and Webberville. Que Sazon serves up bites, but the experience won’t be complete without a signature Kitty cocktail in your paw – maybe a marg? Or their totally freak-out worthy frosé? Or perhaps you’ll give in to the eclipse chaos and order a pop-up party drink special … who can say where the spirit’ll take you … – James Scott

      Pup Crawl

      If dogs could drink, what would be their tipple of choice? My guess: a cold brewski on a good day, but a frozen daiquiri when they’ve had a tough one. Now, dogs cannot actually drink alcohol – not even Spuds MacKenzie – but you can sup for the pups by purchasing a Pawsport from Austin Humane Society. By dropping a crisp $25, you’ll be able to bring your dog along to Dog House Drinkery, MUTTS Canine Cantina Austin, Yard Bar, or the Watering Bowl, where they can run about an on-site dog park and you can get a free drink. Each bar earns you a Pawsport stamp, and all four stamps get you entered in pawsome prize giveaways. It’s no dog-safe daiquiri, but it’ll do until the science is there. – James Scott
