    Austin Restaurant Weeks

    Austin Restaurant Weeks is a two-week-long dining event featuring specially priced lunches, dinners, and cocktails at restaurants (many of the best places in town among them) throughout the greater Austin area, with a portion of the price of each meal going directly to the Central Texas Food Bank.: A portion? Yes: Restaurants donate between $3-9 for each meal sold during the event. The Food Bank can make the most of every dollar donated, so a dinner for two people can generate more than 50 meals for Central Texans facing hunger.: (Note: Prix fixe meal options can include lunch or brunch for $20 and dinner for $40 or $60. Cocktail, beer and wine options may also be available.)
    Through Sept. 17

    Beat the Heat

    With Central Texas experiencing extremely high temperatures, city leaders issued a reminder to be aware of Excessive Heat Watch and Excessive Heat Warning alerts from the National Weather Service. A warning means action should be taken immediately to avoid heat-related illness. The city began a pilot program in July at Republic Square with misting tents and cold bottled water, and always offers facilities like rec centers and libraries as cooling centers. In addition, city pool fees are waived Aug. 9-Sept. 30, except for Barton Springs. Visit the city's website for more information, and always check before you head to an outdoor event: For safety, organizers may cancel events that put people at risk due to the heat.
