In just under two weeks, on May 14th, one of our favorite Austin bar and restaurants, Black Sheep Lodge, is turning TWO! They’re growing up so fast. This won’t be any average two-year-old birthday party. You know, the one where a million screaming toddlers smash cake in their face while their parents sit in lawn chairs drinking wine coolers looking all kinds of exhausted. No, no, this one is going to be a smashing good time for everyone.
There’s a lot of fun to be expected next Saturday at the Black Sheep Lodge 2nd Birthday Bash. Crawfish boils seem to be a favorite pass time of Austin locals, and Black Sheep Lodge will be serving up those tasty crawdads all day. There will also be awesome drink specials every hour including Tito’s, Makers Mark, Deep Eddy, and many, many more. Oh and how does spiked watermelon sound to you? “Awesomely incredible” is the answer you were looking for.
We all know it ain’t a party with some happenin’ music, so Black Sheep Lodge is bringing us the musical stylings of More Cowbell and Whiskey Shivers. If you haven’t already checked these bands out, let me advise you to do so! More Cowbell is an awesome local band that started as a joke, but has received some great awards for 3rd best cover band and one of the best novelty bands in Austin from the Austin Chronicle Reader’s poll. They create hilarious mashups and covers of popular favorites. “Smells like Gin & Juice” and “Smack My Breath Away” are a few of their song titles, so I’m sure you can see how awesome they are. Whiskey Shivers is an amazing folk-bluegrass band from right here in Austin. Having played practically every venue in Austin, Whiskey Shivers has become a favorite Austin group yielding quite a loyal following.
While all of the above are guaranteed to make for an awesome time, the fun doesn’t stop there. If you RSVP on Do512 you can enjoy free beer (while it lasts – so get there early), and raffle prizes for lots of badass things and stuff, including passes to exclusive tapings at the Do512 Lounge! Heyoooo!
We here at Do512 have loved Black Sheep Lodge for… well… ever. First, they’re awesome neighbors posted up just under a block away on South Lamar. Secondly, they have the most awesome staff. Thirdly, they have an insane beer selection, amazing food, and a brand new annex addition! The annex is complete with arcade games, pool, shuffleboard, and soon to have skee ball. This place can keep you entertained and well fed/beveraged for hours.
I know we’ll be there on May 14th to help Black Sheep Lodge celebrate their second birthday, and we can’t wait to see you all there too! Party starts at 2, so be sure to get there early to partake in all the awesomeness and to join us in singing a rousing round of Haaaaappy Biiirthdayyy to youuuuu… you know the rest.
