    Craftsman: Mardi Gras Takeover

    The lively East Austin drinkery unveils an amazing Mardi Gras pop-up experience featuring a delicious array of their favorite New Orleans-inspired cocktails and food, with the whole joint decorated to make guests feel like they've been transported to the middle of the French Quarter.

    Note: A recent preview reveals that, instead of just throwing some basic N'awlins-sparked flair at the bar, the Craftsman crew has researched that storied city's mixological history from 1800 onward … and used their intel to conjure freshly brilliant examples of vintage cocktails. We'll go out on a bead-draped limb here and suggest that you might never find a better Sazerac for years, for instance. But we'll also insist that we'd rather spend all night tossing back sugar-rimed coupes of that 1850-specific Brandy Crusta. Between bites of the special menu's succulent shrimp po'boy, to be sure. We mean: Laissez les bons temps rouler, baby!

    Through March 5

    It's My Park: Free Noms for Helping

    The Austin Parks Foundation’s annual city-wide volunteer event is presented by Wheatsville Food Co-Op, and registration is still open – with more than 100 projects to choose from: clean-ups, trail repairs, tree care, and there's even a kids' crew. Lend a hand in enhancing our green spaces and be rewarded with 1) the warm feeling of civic pride and 2) some big ol' food discounts and a free biscuit from Bird Bird Biscuit and free beer from Scholz Garten. They're probably not gonna give a beer to any kids, no, but you get the idea.

    King Cakes From Easy Tiger

    Here’s the facts, and we can’t hide ’em: These tasty King Cakes have a tiger inside ’em! These seasonal cakes from one of Austin’s favorite bakeries are made with pain au lait dough, filled with butter and cinnamon sugar, and come with a tiger figurine tucked inside (instead of that traditional plastic baby). And now, mon ami, they’re available fresh – for pick-up at all Easy Tiger locations, any time between now and Mardi Gras (March 5) with 48 hours’ advance notice.
