Things to do in Austin the weekend of Feb. 13-16
1. “Bonnie & Clyde: A Musical Comedy”
8 p.m. Feb. 13-15. $12-$25. Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road. texascomedies.com.
Over Valentine’s Day weekend, enjoy this irreverent musical comedy about one of the most notorious couples in history: Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. Presented by Texas Comedies, the hourlong show — featuring a live band — is based on deputy Ted Hinton’s memoir, as well as newspaper stories of the 1930s, about the outlaws from West Dallas who committed robberies and murders during the Great Depression.
2. Murder at the Mansion: A Valentine’s Day Dinner at Hotel Ella
6 p.m. Feb. 14. $100. 1900 Rio Grande St.exploretock.com/hotelella/event/94561/murder-at-the-mansion-a-valentines-day-dinner-at-hotel-ella
Here’s the perfect date for your murder-mystery- and true crime-obsessed partner. Hotel Ella is hosting an interactive whodunnit, perfectly matched with a three-course dinner and wine pairings. The clues begin at cocktail hour in the Hotel Ella courtyard, where you get to know your fellow guests (and suspects). Then move to Goodall’s for dinner. Come dressed in your favorite wedding attire.
3. Beer My Valentine Day at Independence Brewing
6 p.m. Feb. 14. Free-$25. 3913 Todd Lane. eventbrite.com/e/beer-my-valentine-tickets-90830078209
If your one true love is craft beer, here’s the event for you on Valentine’s Day. Independence will have the first bottle release of the Barrel-Aged Convict Hill Stout, a free Texas two-step group lesson, live bluegrass music, flower bouquets, chocolates, the official launch of the brewery’s new on-site food truck and free samples of Garrison Brothers bourbon.
4. Blackillac at Mohawk outdoor
8 p.m. doors Feb. 15. $12-$15. 912 Red River St.mohawkaustin.com
Get your fire emojis ready. The explosive duo of Zeale and Phranchyze, ATX hip-hop titans who have been flexing their skills on Austin stages for well over a decade, scorched the stage with a banging set of turnt up party rap during their early afternoon Austin City Limits Music Festival set last year. It’s worth noting Gary Clark Jr. is not on tour right now, and we (unscientifically) place the odds of a pop-in at 60/40. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
