    Cloud Tree Studios: Connection – Series I

    Okay, you want a deeply wonderful, life-enriching experience in this town right now? Go here. See this show. See this exhibition of Prentiss Douthit's oil-on-linen portraits of random strangers, portraits that are paired with the pictured ones' answers to questions posed by the artist. Note: Bring your earbuds, so you can hear the recordings of those questions and answers while you drink in the well-rendered draughts of humanity Douthit has so carefully provided.

    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.

    HRC: Henry David Thoreau

    You know who, way back in the day, had the whole self-isolation thing down pretty damn well? "The author of Walden and Civil Disobedience" is the answer. Of course, Thoreau was only in "semi-seclusion" out there in the north country woods; but what he had to say – what he wrote, in many instances – is a valuable resource for people in these socially distanced times. Here, take yourself a virtual stroll through Thoreau's manuscripts (and letters and more) as beautifully archived in UT's own Harry Ransom Center.

    Treaty Oak Distilling: Smoke & Mash BBQ Celebration

    Just down the road a piece, at the start of the Texas Hill Country, sits a gorgeous spread of reclaimed ranchland on which Daniel Barnes and his meticulous associates craft up several of the finest tipples available in our crazy-ass world: Bourbon, rye whiskey, gin, even (shhh) some wine.

    Maybe you've visited this little patch of paradise already? And maybe you've understandably become addicted to the grainy goodness that flows from Barton Springs Mill on the same property? Well, this Memorial Day weekend's a good time to return: Saturday's Smoke & Mash is an all-day barbecue expo with offerings from the professionals at Alice’s Restaurant, World Barbecue Champion pitmaster Tuffy Stone, third-generation barbecuer Sam Jones, and award-winning pitmaster Moe Cason. (Guests can purchase $5 tickets, each of which can be exchanged for a small barbecue plate from any of the vendors.)

    You want, what, more than just perfect barbecue in a pastoral outdoor setting? Of course there'll be live music – the Hot Texas Swing Band, Night Cap, and Deezie Brown – but, check this out, Austin Speed Shop's presenting a car show (starting at 2pm) and Treaty Oak will release their new Red, White & Blue single barrel whiskey at this celebration. (Note: There's only 210 bottles to this expression, sold exclusively at the distillery while supplies last.) And this whole thing serves as a benefit for the Southern Smoke Foundation and Tate Farms, too.

    Reservations? Nah, hoss, just show up and be ready for a real good time.

    Sat., May 29, noon until closing time
