Austin institution Kerbey Lane Cafe is celebrating its 35th birthday by donating profits from each of its locations (until 6 a.m. tomorrow) to United Way of Greater Austin. Check the website for locations and hours around town. Kerbey Lane will celebrate with an event from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight at its South Lamar location. There will be mini-ponies (for petting, not riding).
"Kerbey Lane Cafe is incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve the Austin community for 35 years. We wouldn’t be around today if it weren’t for the countless Austinites who have dined with us and supported our business all these years," Kerbey Lane Cafe CEO Mason Ayer said. "We deeply value our community and want to celebrate this milestone by giving back. United Way for Greater Austin is a first rate organization that truly practices its motto of making Austin great every single day."
