There are lots of things to love about Austin in the summer — the sweltering heat notwithstanding, of course. What’s better, for example, than chilling out on a 100-degree day with a sweet trip to Amy’s Ice Creams? When the founder of the beloved local institution celebrated the company’s 30th (yes, 30th!) anniversary this June, she chose to make Vuka her event space of choice, and we couldn’t have been more honored to host the festivities.

All afternoon and evening, former Amy’s employees chowed down on eats from Phil’s Icehouse and Load A Bowl, plus a heaping helping of delicious treats from Amy’s own scratch bakery. With plenty of games, face painting and other fun interactive activities for kids and kids at heart, a DJ spinning happy tunes, and the cherry on top — a speech from the one and only Amy herself — it was indeed an evening sprinkled with lots of love. What could be cooler than that?

We probably don’t need to explain to anyone who Aaron Franklin is, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that Austin’s own BBQ mastermind has reached yet another milestone in his journey toward becoming the nation’s #1 cause of the meat sweats.

After racking up a few million views on YouTube, the BBQ with Franklin web series is officially making the leap to TV, with KLRU handling distribution to PBS stations across America. To celebrate its small screen debut this spring, KLRU threw a BBQ bash at Vuka, starring the always affable pitmaster himself. He chatted the evening away with guests, all of whom were treated with a guest musical appearance by The Sour Bridges (scroll down for a video of their a cappella performance in the crowd) — and none of whom went home hungry.

BBQ with Franklin debuts on KLRU at 8 pm on May 21 (see full schedule). Want all the background on Franklin’s journey to the small screen? Check out KLRU’s coverage here. Oh, and here’s one last tasty morsel: enjoy The Sour Bridges singing “Mama Rock Me” a cappella for the crowd. Bon appetit!

When the spectacle of South By Southwest rolls into town each year, the city braces itself for an ever-growing influx of curious souls and stuffs itself to the gills for ten days with music, film, tech, and tons of street food. Time after time, it’s a perfect example of Austin doing what we do best: welcoming people with open arms and encouraging them to create. True to form, SXSW 2015 at Vuka saw a mix of industries coming together to exchange ideas and learn new things between mouthfuls of brisket and tacos. New friendships were solidified far and wide, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Now that the circus has left town, so to speak, here’s a quick look back at this year’s adventures. We were fortunate enough to host everything from a mind-blowing virtual reality demo day to a DIRECTV event featuring a stellar performance from Cults. We even had our name on a blimp flying high over Austin.

art events AustinArt and Beer. Or Beer and Art… And Music! In whatever made the most sense to you, Hops for Hope at Vuka was a hoot!

Vuka was the place to be on November 24, for art, artists, and art lovers all in the name of helping people. The event was a free art show benefiting the Helping Other People Everywhere Campaign. Featured work from local artists, including Aaron Darling, Jason Eatherly, Efren “ER,” Emily Galusha, Adreon Henry, Molly Maroney, Mark Yawn and Brandon Snow was coolly on display. Spratx put on a live art show, creating on-the-spot screen printing and custom designs.

The beer selections was equally impressive with donations from local breweries Hops & Grain, Live Oak Brewing, Austin Beerworks, South Austin Brewing Co., Independence Brewing, Adelbert’s Brewery, Rogness Brewing Company and national brewers Deschutes Brewery, Firestone Brewing, Brooklyn Brewery, Dogfish Head Brewery, Stone Brewery and Lagunitas Brewing.
