Author Andrew Sean Greer will be at the Austin Central Library talking about the book “Less.” Contributed by Kaliel Roberts


St. Elmo and Easy Tiger’s Collaboration Beer Release Party. St. Elmo Brewing and bakery and beer bar Easy Tiger have teamed up to create a very special beer together, called Norman. Head brewer Bryan Winslow and head doughpuncher David Norman were inspired to make this roggenbier using Easy Tiger’s dark German rye sourdough instead of the traditional malt — so it’s going to taste a little different but no doubt very good. (Rye generally adds spice to a beer.) Taste it at this evening release party. 5 to 7 p.m. June 11. Free. Easy Tiger, 709 E. Sixth St.


“Of Warp and Weft.” Despite the vastly different mediums of Austin-based artists Caprice Pierucci and Charles Heppner, her elegant carved wood sculptures and his photographs of delicate cheesecloth find an open dialogue of harmony, form and composition. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through July 21. Davis Gallery, 837 W. Twelfth St. 512-477-4929,


“Clue” Movie Party. At one point or another, we’ve all killed Mr. Boddy. This month, the Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating the hilarious film adaptation of the board game “Clue” with a movie party. You’ll scream along with Mrs. Peacock, feel flames on the side of your face with Mrs. White and deliver perfect quips with Wadsworth, the one and only Tim Curry. Though the Alamo won’t be handing out ropes or lead pipes, you will be getting props to intensify your evening at Mr. Boddy’s spooky manor. 10 p.m. June 11, 9:55 p.m. June 13. $11. The Alamo Ritz, 320 E. Sixth St.


Pints & Poses at Hyatt Regency Austin. A good life’s all about balance, right? Find it with this serene evening of yoga and a beer. The monthly vinyasa flow yoga class returns with live meditative music from local yoga DJ Trey Tarwater and instruction by Ferny Barcelo and Zuzu Perkal. (Bring your own mat.) Following the class, participants will receive a coupon for a complimentary draft beer at a pop-up bar at the hotel’s Southwest Bistro restaurant, near the foyer of the Texas Ballroom where yoga will be located. 6:30 p.m. June 11. Free. 208 Barton Springs Road. 512-477-1234,

Coming up

Andrew Sean Greer. The recent Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction writer Greer will read from his award-winning novel “Less” and converse with local novelist Amanda Eyre Ward for this Austin Central Library event. “Less” is about a failed novelist, pushing 50, who decides to avoid the wedding of his ex-boyfriend by accepting a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world. BookPeople will be on hand to provide book copies for purchase, which Greer will sign after the talk. 7 p.m. June 13. Free. 710 W. Cesar Chavez St.

Blues on the Green. It doesn’t get much more quintessentially Austin than this: Bob Schneider, the genre-crossing local artist who has recently released his sixth solo album, the eclectic “Blood and Bones,” will be the headliner of one of summer’s most popular live music series. He’ll no doubt serve up a mix of his standby tunes and new works alike. The Colombian funk, Caribbean soul fusion band Superfónicos will open. Bring a blanket; dogs are welcome. Food will be available at the park. 8 p.m. Wednesday. Zilker Park, 2100 Barton Springs Road.
