    Don't know much about that particular event, but BUT Saturday is the kick-off weekend for Austin Beer Week, so there will be a lot of special tappings etc at various places in Austin Sat/Sun. I am driving up for the JK Funk 'n Sour Fest and will be going to a couple places Sat evening as well.
  2. Tour De Fat is a cool event, I did the one in Nashville earlier this year. We had probably 600-700 riders in the Tour/Ride before they opened the event. I'd expect something like this would be a huge hit in Austin. Go to see "The Rymese Twins", hilarious stuff. Beers are $5, if I recall correctly. Didn't see anything special at ours, lots of Fat Tire and Shift.
