Austin: The Best Authentic Experiences

  • The B Scene at the Blanton Museum: On the first Friday of every month, local art lovers socialize over wine and finger food at the new Blanton Museum. Music, too, is provided, but not so much that it puts a damper on the conversation.

  • Early Evenings at Scholz Garten: At Austin's oldest drinking establishment, you can buy a pint of draft beer and claim your spot at one of the large picnic tables that fill the outdoor patio. People show up after work to slow down and enjoy some casual conversation. On Thursday evenings in cool weather, a brass band will play for beer, and they're not bad.

  • First Thursdays in SoCo: The first Thursday of every month is a lively time on South Congress. Crowds show up to hear the free music, look over the goods at the street stalls, and enter the shops that stay open late for the occasion. You never know who or what will show up, and everyone is in the mood to have a good time.

  • The Broken Spoke: There are a lot of dance halls in central Texas, but you would be hard pressed to find a better, more fun place to go than this one. You'll see lots of local color and enjoy the easy-going society that Austin is known for. Everybody has a good time.
