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.
It'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 cleanup 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 Kung Fu Saloon for more details.
