    Bubbles and Bulldozers

    Oh! This is a champagne tour and dining experience (from Gusto Italian Kitchen) and the public’s first opportunity to see behind the construction fencing at Kingsbury Commons, Pease Park Conservancy’s $15M, seven-acre project to create a world-class public green space at the southern tip of Austin’s first and oldest public park. This year's event spans six days and features multiple time slots each day. "This approach allows us to maintain the in-person energy of an event and the excitement of a private tour of this inspiring project – all while maintaining social distance with groups of 10 or fewer." Yes, but those slots are filling up f-a-s-t, citizen! And you can do this in-person ($125) or virtually ($50), and the noms are always included. Serving suggestion: Click on over and grab yourself a time!
    Oct. 12-17. $50-125.

    Food Access Resources from SFC

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.

    Pig Week 2020

    OK, so Pig Week is actually seven weeks, during which Central Texas Pig Rescue's compassionate small-business friends will be offering specials, with proceeds going to the CTPR Expansion Project. Check the calendar, follow CTPR's social media, and sign up for the newsletter to get reminders and updates. Then, simply indulge in your local faves like Rebel Cheese, Plow Burger, Bouldin Creek Cafe, and more, and share on Instagram by tagging @centraltexaspigrescue and the business' account using #pigweek2020 to be entered into raffles. It's an excellent way to "swine and dine," if you will, for a great cause.
    Through Oct. 31

    Red Beans and Ricely Yours, Austin

    This community initiative, headed by Chris Cubas and Maris Clegg, is dedicated to providing free meals (of red beans and rice, andouille sausage, cornbread, fruit, dessert, and a drink) to Austinites in need. "On Tuesdays, we will provide a link to sign up for a free home-made meal delivered to you with safety in mind," goes their announcement on Facebook. "There is no judgment and the form is anonymous. If you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a hard time, we would like to make a small portion of your day a little bit better." Or, if you'd like to donate your time in driving, baking treats, or providing cases of non-alcoholic beverages, please reach out to redbeansaustin@gmail.com.
