    Oyster Season

    It was a brave soul who ate the first oyster, and now the bivalve mollusks are on the dinner table. This is the time to get the freshest oysters as fishermen come into the Rockport/Fulton Harbor around 4-5pm. The annual Fulton Oyster Festival has been canceled for this year, but there are still plenty of oysters available at local markets and restaurants.
    Through April 30

"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."

    testsite: How a House Works

    How does a house work? The folks at Fluent-Collaborative presented such a compelling answer from artists Andy Coolquitt and Alix Browne that, when the coronavirus shutdown went into effect, they turned the exhibition into a website of its own. So now you can click over for a visit, and – hey, who's answering the questions here?

    The Social Distancing Festival

    This is an online community, as playwright and unstoppable force of creative nature Nick Green informs us, and it's been activated to "celebrate and showcase the work of the many artists around the world who have been affected by the need for social distancing that has come about due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)." It's not Austin-based, this virtual and ongoing festival of all kinds of performance arts, but damned if there aren't a few talented Austinites among the eclectic mix.

    Virtual Hideout

    So many shows, so many themes, such a freakin' panoply of improv talents at this Hideout that it makes the mind, how you say, boggle. Longtime house troupe Parallelogramophonograph sets the performance bar high AF, but damned if their everchanging roster of guests doesn't sometimes knock it right off. (The Hideout's got a full weekly schedule of entertainments for you online, of course, courtesy of relentless creativity even in the face of those stupid, stupid 'ronas.) Check that website, STAT.
