‘vents ‘n ‘murica

It’s that time again.
You are looking for a good time this 4th of July weekend and the ACA has your back.

On this, the celebration of American independence, we want to provide you with a melting pot of different events this weekend.

Although polygamy is frowned upon in today’s society, it was an accepted practice in America until 1862. Unfortunately, Too Many Husbands does not take place in the early 19th century. Thus the trouble unfolds along with the hilarity. Enjoy this slice of Americana Thursday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 7 at the Vortex.  Tickets are pick your price $15-$30.

George Washington Carver may be known for peanuts, but there is much more to this man.  GWC was a huge supporter of diversity and the arts.  It is that (plus the fact that he was named after the first president of the U.S.) that gets him on our list.  Check out Rhythms with Gidi: African Drum Class at the George Washington Carver Museum & Cultural Center this Saturday at 2:30.  Enjoy a one time class for $10 this weekend or a 6 week course for $50.

Let’s face it.  American’s love to eat.  And why shouldn’t we?  It’s tasty, it’s fun, it’s necessary to our survival.  If hot dogs, hamburgers, and watermelon aren’t really your thing, maybe you should try the Austin Eats Downtown Food Tour Saturday at 10 am. For $65 you can enjoy award winning biscuits & gravy, a landmark burger, freshly baked sweets, Austin’s newest gastropub, a libation sampling, and much more!  Enter aca10 as a promo code to save and support the Creative Alliance.



But the ultimate in Americana would have to be watching Will Smith in Independence day on the 4th of July at a drive in movie. If only… Wait what? That’s exactly what Blue Starlite: Independence Day is?  Brilliant.  I’ll see you there at their E 6th St. Location for just $25 a car, July 4th at 9 pm.
