U.S.S Lexington

Hey friends! I know, I know: another week, another late list from me. I promise I’ll start getting these out earlier soon – cross my heart, hope to die, scout’s honor, and all that. Did you take advantage of the “cool” front this week? And, good news: there’s thunderstorms in the forecast for Saturday. However, don’t let that keep you inside this weekend! There’s plenty to do around the Coastal Bend as we gear up for the autumnal equinox next week: 



Friday, 5:30 p.m.

Are you feeling a little downward dog? All those planets in retrograde got your chakras all out of alignment? Do you feel a little more limber with some liquid help?

Rockit’s Whiskey Bar and Saloon

Channel your best Tom Selleck and grab your Hawaiian shirts for this months “80’s with the Ladies” extravaganza at Rockits. Dance the night away in your best Magnum P.I.-inspired outfit.

Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures

Roll up to the Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures to try your hand at making sushi. I don’t know about you, but sushi is one of my top five favorite things to eat … so this is a $10 class I wouldn’t want to miss! Find more information, including sign ups for each class, on the Facebook event



Saturday, 1 p.m.
