JUNE 8 - Maudie's Moonlight Margarita run + party
New Home for MMR + Registration Now Open!
Back for its 13th year, The Maudie's Moonlight Margarita Run and Party (MMR) will be bigger and better than ever this year. We are excited to announce that the event has a new home! MMR will now take place at Seaholm. The race will begin along Walter Seaholm Drive and follow the former race course, but in reverse. The Finisher Party will take place at Sand Beach Park and the Post-Race Party will take place on the Great Lawn in front of the former Seaholm Power Plant.
MMR began in 2005 to bring two of Austin's favorite things together – running and margaritas! This event has served as The Trail Foundation's largest annual fundraiser and this year will be no exception. Please mark your calendars for Thursday, June 8th! Unlike other major fundraisers in Austin, this event allows ladies to trade the little black dress and heels for shorts and running shoes while gentlemen can leave their ties at home. While the attire is casual, the event raises critically needed funds for Austin's beloved Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail.
Starting at 8:00pm runners depart on a 5K course traveling along the streets bordering Lady Bird Lake. Those attending the post-race party (a separate event within an event) will enjoy margaritas and catered dinner with Maudie's Tex-Mex under the stars and the lights of downtown Austin. To finish the night, post-race party attendees dance and mingle to live music.

NOVEMBER 20 - dazed and confused
Director: Richard Linklater; Starring: Jason London, Wiley Wiggins, Matthew McConaughey
WHEN: Sunday, 20 OCT 16. Doors at 6:00 pm, Movie at 7:00 pm (1 hr 43 min, rated R)
WHERE: 800 W Cesar Chavez St . Seaholm Power Plant Lawn (facing Cesar Chavez and Town Lake)
TICKETS: $10 -Ticket. Tickets will be available at door. (Debit/credit ONLY)

Alright, alright, alright! Join the Rolling Roadshow on November 20th for the Austin classic Dazed and Confused on the Seaholm Power Lawn (facing Cesar Chavez and Town Lake.) Bring your fold out chairs, blankets, and head next door to Trader Joe's to grab the perfect picnic essentials to enjoy while watching this nostalgic teenage film.
This just might be the most endlessly watchable movie of all-time. Linklater's take on the last day of school in 1976 and the teen cliques that populate a small Texas town could have easily succumbed to teen movie clichés, but his honest approach and what feels like effortless execution makes DAZED a genuine and true portrait of its time and place.
That's most likely because it's a deeply personal film for Linklater, a fact that shines through every scene. Also, the talented young cast, now a who's-who of actors, helps anchor the film and makes it something truly special.
What you CAN bring: Beverages or Refreshments, Outside Food, Folding Chairs & Blankets & debit/credit card)
What you CAN'T bring: Drugs, Weapons, Smoking is not allowed at this venue, cash (to pay for ticket)
