Here's a fun idea to combine recreation and altruism in Austin this weekend: Sign up for the first annual Let's Get Trashed event, hosted by Kung Fu Saloon, a martial-arts themed bar and video arcade at 5th and Rio Grande.
Itâ€™s not what you think. Mindful of the thrashing received by Lady Bird Lake and the Lady Bird Lake hike-and-bike trail by recent flooding, King Fu proprietors are partnering with Austin Paddle Sports to host a cleanupâ€”on complimentary Stand-Up Paddleboards. The cleanup portion of the event takes place from 1-3, then moves over to Kung Fu Saloon for free beer and skeeball. Call 512/469-0901 or see www.kungfusaloon for more details.
