Bat Cruise Events

On September 26th, the ACA will be holding its annual Bat Cruise. There will be several related events that day, so there will be plenty to do if you live around Austin, or you're coming in for the event.

Here's what will be happening:

  • 5pm(ish) meet at the bar at Threadgill's Restaurant Threadgill's Restaurant 301 West Riverside Drive (at Barton Springs Rd.) Map for a quick drink and hello. You may park at One Texas Center (505 Barton Springs Road) parking garage behind the restaurant for the duration of the cruise. Parking should be free, unless there happens to be some other special event downtown that evening.
  • 5:30pm walk to Capitol Cruises for the Bat Cruise. You're welcome to bring food and drink but no glass containers. We will be limiting the cruise to about 50 people, so get paid up prior to the event. The boat will leave promptly at 6pm. Don't be late!
  • 8pm return to Threadgills and pick up your car and/or eat dinner. Note that it's a pleasant ~1 mile walk from Threadgill's to Esther's Follies, should you prefer not to hassle with parking downtown.
  • 10pm The 10pm show at Esther's Follies comedy club starts. The address is 525 E 6th St. Map (512) 320-0553. It is recommended you get your reserve seating ticket(s) in advance via their web site ($25). Shows do fill up. We have no parking suggestions at this time, but the area can be congested on the weekends.
  • After for those who are especially young and energetic, you'll be able to go clubbing on Austin's famous 6th street.

Please join us for this great set of events. There will be plenty of time for chatting and making new friends. We look forward to seeing you!

Atheist Community of Austin

The Atheist Community of Austin is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting positive atheism and the separation of church and state. The ACA serves the local Austin community through outreach programs, providing informational resources and various volunteer activities. In addition, the ACA serves the community-at-large through free online portals including informational wikis, regular audio/video podcasts and interactive blogs.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.
