Sublime said it best: Summertime, and the livin’s easy.
And one thing’s for sure — Austin definitely doesn’t fall short when it comes to outdoor adventures. From kayaking, floating and SUP yoga, to hiking, biking, golfing and tennis, our summer issue is packed with activities to satisfy your need to get active and stay fit. Make sure you check out our “Riding the Waves” feature which spotlights Mañana, a local surfboard company that grew from a garage project into an ambitious new lifestyle brand.
On the flip side, if you’re looking for ways to beat the heat, stay cool and avoid the scorching sun, “Ice Cold” highlights 13 indoor activities that show you what’s cooler than being cool. Some of our favorites include Inner Space Cavern, Bull & Bowl, Austin Bouldering Project, Bishop Cidercade, Ocean Lab and Thinkery. For those that have driven down South Congress and seen the neon sign that reads “Espresso, Champagne, Chain Lube” and wondered how in the heck those three things go together, “Wine Pedalers” breaks it all down for you.
“It was really just a natural progression. We wanted to smash up the things we loved,” says Chris St. Peter, the co-founder and managing director of The Meteor. “With those three things, traditionally their cultures can trend toward pretentiousness, and we are very intentionally unpretentious.We want to be nerdy and have fun, but because they all coexist together in the same space, it breaks down those barriers.”
The Meteor strives to be the front porch of the cycling community — Austin’s cyclists’ home base with a combination of coffee, beer, wine and bikes. St. Peter says that they are at the crossroads of the different slices of life that make the capital city so unique.
Finally, in “Lager Than Life” we take a look at 12 pitcher perfect Austin breweries where you can get a frosty pint with friends on a breezy patio. A few that made the cut include Austin Beerworks, Zilker Brewing Company, Central Machine Works, Jester King Brewery and Koko’s Bavarian. Raise a glass — cheers to summer!
