Editor’s note: as part of my ongoing mission to brainwash the good people of Austin into abandoning the suburbs and demanding dense, walkable urban design, I figured we’d post event guides for interesting stuff going on in the city every weekend. Trust me, I’ve got great taste!
Friday, Sept. 8
JW Marriott, 110 East Second Street. Tickets are $50. Doors open at 7 p.m.
A fashion show raising money for hurricane victims? Sure thing, man — whatever helps, I guess. Anyway, it’s a good excuse to hang out at the JW Marriott downtown, and you barely need an excuse to do that anyway. Just money.
100% of the ticket purchase price goes to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort, and a cash bar is available.
Saturday, Sept. 9
Browning Hangar, 4550 Mueller Boulevard. Free. 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Goods for sale from local artisans and craft vendors, food trucks, and live music, all at Mueller’s historic Browning Hangar. Do I need to keep talking you into this?
310-B Colorado Street. Free. 10 p.m. – 2 a.m.
A newcomer to the Warehouse District, Moonfire Lounge promises cocktails and small plates in plush surroundings. Its grand opening night party this Saturday includes drink specials, giveaways and music from two DJs, which I suppose is better than one.
Sunday, Sept. 10
807 East Fourth Street. Free. Doors open at 8 p.m., show begins at 9 p.m.
Your mileage may vary when it comes to standing stand-up comedy, but even bad jokes are probably much easier to tolerate in the swanky digs at Native Hostel, the recently-opened spot to see and be seen (and also stay) in east Austin. Sunday’s night of live comedy is the venue’s first, and this is as good an excuse as any to check out the place.
1005 Cardinal Lane. Free. 2 – 4 p.m.
You knew we had to do a shameless plug somewhere. Join the TOWERS Realty team for a tour of this modern home in 78704 designed by sustainable modern architecture firm Forsite Studio.
Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, 320 East Sixth Street. $15-ish per ticket. 8:30 p.m.
Can you believe the greatest movie ever made turns 30 this year? See an anniversary screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz downtown, and catch a bonus livestream Q&A with the roboman himself, Peter Weller, broadcast from a simultaneous live event at Dallas City Hall — also known as one of the movie’s most iconic filming locations.
