Fireworks and Fresh Barbecue Await at the Omni Resort’s 4th of July Celebration

June 23, 2017 9:00 am

If you don't yet have plans to celebrate Independence Day, allow Austin's Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa to do all the barbecuing and party-planning for you. Its 4th of July Celebration is already all organized; all you have to do is a buy a ticket and show up.

The 4th of July Celebration is actually slated for Monday, July 3rd starting at 6:30 p.m. That's good news for everyone who has a day off on the 4th because it means you can stay up late to fully enjoy the fireworks display, which begins at 9:15 p.m. But before you ooh and aah over the pyrotechnics, enjoy a cookout in the pavilion. The barbecue-inspired spread features everything from smoked brisket and whole smoked chickens to smoked cheddar mac and cheese, Mexican-style street corn, and watermelon with feta cheese. Tickets start at $44 for adults and $11 for children.

Mark Your Calendar for the Austin Solstice Festival 2017

June 14, 2017 9:00 am

Austin is a hub for fresh music year-round, but it has even more to offer music lovers from June 15th to the 17th. In celebration of World Music Day (or Fête de la Musique, as it's known worldwide), the city transforms into one enormous stage for local and national artists. It's called the Austin Solstice Festival.

For just $35, you can enjoy three days' worth of live tunes at venues around Austin, most of them not far from Elan East. Pan Am Park serves as the main spot for the shows, so bring along a blanket or a few lawn chairs to enjoy the live music here. There will also be plenty of food, workshops, and some fun activities for children (kids under age 12 are admitted for free), so make sure you show up early for this spring festival.

Have Fun for a Good Cause at the Startup Games 2017

June 9, 2017 9:01 am

There's no team-building activity out there quite like the Startup Games 2017. This event invites local startups to come out and compete for a good cause—more specifically, the charity of their choice. Sign up with your coworkers to participate in the event, and, if you win, the cash prize goes to your favorite philanthropic organization.

But before you take home the glory, you'll have to prove your worth by owning other startups in competitions like beer pong, dodgeball, shuffleboard, darts, Jenga, and even Mario Kart. These fun activities are designed more to get everyone engaged than to truly inspire competitive face-offs, so enjoy this time spent with your team at the Startup Games 2017. They'll be held on Saturday, June 10th at Fair Market, and contestants can win up to $20,000 for their charities.
