1. H-E-B Free First Sunday at the Bullock Museum

Noon to 5 p.m. May 6. Free. 1800 Congress Ave. 512-936-4629,

At this month’s Free First Sunday, families will explore the connection between Texas history and mathematics through hands-on activities, creative projects, storytime and engaging demonstrations. Activities include shopping for the 17th century’s finest navigation tools and supplies so you can set sail on La Belle — on permanent display at the Bullock — and designing your very own ranch with cattle, a river, a farmhouse and other features. Plus, you can play games, enjoy shadow puppet performances and more.

2. Free Fitness Series at Republic Square

6:30 p.m. May 7. Free. 422 Guadalupe St.

A new series that will allow you to work out in the heart of downtown Austin completely for free kicks off in celebration of May being National Physical Month. On all Mondays in May, you can connect with your wild side through free yoga provided by Wild Heart Yoga. Tuesdays are all about showing your strength with free rowing and circuit training by Ro Fitness, and Wednesdays will provide barre classes by Barre3. Child-friendly activities will be provided each night.

3. Winemaker Happy Hour at Aviary Wine & Kitchen

5:30 to 8:30 p.m. May 8. Free. 2210 S. Lamar Blvd.

Expand your palate at the South Austin wine bar with a new ongoing series of happy hours. Each one features complimentary tastings from some of the most exciting winemakers in the business. The latest one is with Ruis Abicassus of Obrigado Vinhos, a Portuguese winery. In addition to tastings, there will be several wines by-the-glass available for purchase, and you can also enjoy paired bites and a special dish from executive chef Thomas Calhoun. Certain retail bottles can be purchased.

4. Sustainable Food Center’s 11th Annual Farm to Plate

7 to 10:30 p.m. May 9. $300-$500. Barr Mansion, 10463 Sprinkle Road.

Celebrate the bounty of Central Texas with more than 30 of Austin’s most acclaimed chefs. This sip-and-stroll event features locally sourced bites, craft cocktails, local wines and beers, live music and a silent auction on the beautiful grounds of Barr Mansion. Featured chefs include Zach Hunter of the Brewer’s Table, Britt Castro of Holy Roller, Jason Stude of Boiler Nine and Max Snyder of Pitchfork Pretty. VIP ticket holders can arrive an hour early to get a first taste of all the food and drink available.

5. Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons at Bass Concert Hall

8 p.m. May 10. $45.50-$139.50. 2350 Robert Dedman Drive.

From 1960s hits with the Four Seasons to a major comeback thanks to the 1970s musical-turned-movie musical “Grease” to a late-career revival with the Broadway smash “Jersey Boys,” Valli has stretched what might have been a short window as a star of rock’s early years into a lifetime of pop stardom. At 83, he’s now an elder statesman dealing mostly in nostalgia, but the songs have a timeless appeal. — Peter Blackstock

6. An Evening with the Duplass Brothers

7 to 10 p.m. May 11. $47.93. First Baptist Church of Austin, 901 Trinity St.

Indie film and TV stalwarts Mark and Jay Duplass take readers on a tour of their lifelong partnership in their new memoir, “Like Brothers” — and in this live talk produced by the Alamo Drafthouse and BookPeople. “Like Brothers” is told in essays that share the secrets of their success, the joys and frustrations of intimate collaboration and the lessons they’ve learned the hard way. Every ticket to the event comes with a signed copy of the book, and the brothers will stick around for photos afterward.

7. Adelbert’s 7th Anniversary Party

1 to 5 p.m. May 12. $18. 2314 Rutland Drive, Suite 100.

One of Austin’s Belgian-focused breweries is turning the lucky number 7 and will have 24 beers on tap to celebrate — 13 of those special offerings. In addition, the afternoon will have an outdoor game yard, a photo booth and a wide variety of retro games inside thanks to Austin Retro Rentals. Adelbert’s new permanent food truck, Liberation Kitchen, will also be serving comfort food. Ticket includes admission into the party, a raffle ticket, six half pours and a limited-edition anniversary glass.
