Austin Archuleta

April 2, 2024

Hey there, Austin! 🌞 It’s Tuesday, April 2, 2024, and if you thought your day couldn’t get any brighter, just wait till you hear what Smart Austin Realty has in store for you. So, grab your favorite breakfast taco 🌮, sip on that locally brewed coffee ☕, and let’s dive into the happenings around our beloved ATX.

First off, let’s talk weather – because, in Austin, it’s always a topic of conversation. Today’s forecast is shouting out “patio weather” louder than a crowd at ACL. Expect a day as pleasant and less humid as a Barton Springs dip, with a high of 78° that’s sure to put a smile on your face. Tonight, things get a tad moody with partly cloudy skies and a low of 51°. The air quality is a bit on the “meh” side, so if you’re feeling any throat tickles or breathlessness, maybe take it easy. And for my fellow allergy sufferers, the pollen count’s low, so breathe a sigh of relief!

Now, let’s get down to the bricks and mortar of it all. 🏗️ Yesterday’s permit gossip is all about making Austin even cooler (if that’s possible). Here’s the scoop:

  1. UT SEA Holt Renovation 🏛️
  2. Where? 108 E Dean Keeton St. It’s getting a facelift to make way for cutting-edge research on sensory perception and language. Expected to wrap by Feb 2025, this $595K project is one for the books.


  4. Where? 7717 Southwest Parkway. Get ready, doughnut lovers! A new Shipley Do-Nuts is setting up shop, aiming for a September 2024 opening. That’s a $250K investment in making our mornings sweeter.

And for our friends down in San Marcos, Chick-fil-A is getting a half-a-million-dollar remodel. Talk about cluckin’ awesome! 🐔

But what’s a day in Austin without some events to jazz things up? Here’s what’s on the docket for April 2:

  1. A Night of Song and Storytelling 🎶
  2. Where? The Long Center for the Performing Arts. Brené Brown teams up with Gina Chavez and Carrie Rodriguez for a heartfelt evening benefiting Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. Starts at 7 PM. Tickets

  3. Resound Presents: Hotline TNT 🎸

  4. Where? Empire Control Room & Garage. For a night of eclectic tunes, don’t miss out. Doors at 7 PM. Tickets

And for those looking to practice their Español or enjoy a twilight stroll at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, there’s something for everyone.
