Din­ing

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.

Com­ing up

“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/.
