Twins, beer and ice cream: What’s not to love this weekend?
Ice Cream Social at Ruggedman Brewing. Missing out on the Austin Ice Cream Festival this year? Head to this New Braunfels brewery for beer floats using Ruggedman’s Machinegun Stout, Big Rig Blonde with Apricots and Big Rig Blonde with Raspberries. Each float will also be served with an infused cupcake that is paired with each beer. It’s your chance to explore the possibilities of using beer for dessert — because who doesn’t want that? 2 p.m. Saturday. $10. 7600 S. Old Bastrop Hwy., New Braunfels. ruggedman.ticketleap.com/icecream-social.
“The Parent Trap” at the Paramount Theatre. The Paramount’s Summer Classic Film Series won’t last much longer, but it couldn’t close out without showing the 1961 family film, starring Hayley Mills, about two long-lost twin sisters who find out their parents split up and separated them from each other — and who set out on a scheme to reunite the divorced couple. Twins get into the screening for free, as do those dressed like twins. 1 p.m. Sunday. $6-$10. 713 Congress Ave. 512-474-1221, austintheatre.org.
Jester King Beer Dinner at Uchiko. It’ll be pricey but worth it: Uchiko is partnering up with Jester King Brewery for a $175 multicourse dinner. Better yet, the feast will benefit Austin Pets Alive. Sit down to the whopping 10-course meal — having basically fasted the entire day beforehand — at the North Lamar Boulevard sushi restaurant on Aug. 14, when diners will be treated to Uchiko cuisine and several of the beers currently offered at Jester King, as well as one that hasn’t been released yet. 6:30 to 9 pm. Monday. 4200 N. Lamar Blvd. facebook.com/ events/139599279961091/.
