Austin has just passed its third consecutive weekend of action-packed fun; Expectations going into the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix weekend were high after two successful weekends of Austin City Limits Music Festival.

For some, time watching Austin's F1 race is better spent at home — free from the crowds, costly food and drinks, and the general loudness of the passing cars. But loyal fans know there's nothing like being at the track and watching the experience in person. The energy from F1 followers can be absolutely intoxicating (even if you're sober).

For those who missed out last year or just want to catch up on the weekend's best moments, here are our top trackside highlights. Stay tuned for more of our favorite moments in a gallery later this week.

International fans love Austin as much as the locals do
It's no secret that a global motorsport like Formula 1 can draw in fans from all over the world. You'd only need to walk along the track for 15 minutes in order to catch at least five different accents, from the United Kingdom, to India, to Mexico. And if there's one thing that all international fans love, it's Austin. There were several overheard conversations between heavily-accented Europeans deciding where they were going to grab dinner once they left the track, or recapping their trips to Austinites who were keen to give their approval (or recommend something better to do the next time they were in town).

Hats — hats everywhere
Rhinestones and all-black everything were among hot trends for ACL 'fits this year, but unique hats and ball caps were the sole defining characteristic of fashion during the race weekend. This year's collection of team hats came in all colors of the rainbow, and a few had funky patterns. The most memorable hats were foam Duracell battery hats, or hats with not-so-miniature F1 cars on them. Bucket hats deserve an honorable mention, but our favorite ball caps were Red Bull Racing's light blue and pink cherry blossom hats that were leftover from the Japanese Grand Prix.

Sergio Perez has a stronghold over his Austin fanbase
Although Mexico City is Red Bull Racing driver Sergio Perez's home race, he might as well adopt Austin as his second home, thanks to the number of supporters who were proudly shouting his name over the weekend. Die-hard Checo fans walked around with Mexican flags draped over their shoulders, and wore shirts with his face haphazardly copied-and-pasted all over. They cheered more wildly for him than any other driver on track, even after the race had ended.

THEBROSFRESH freshen up a heat-exhausted crowd
These brothers might be from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but their two years in Austin have definitely left a mark. THEBROSFRESH started their Saturday performance in front of a tired, heat-battered lawn behind the turn 19 grandstand, but steadily took command of their audience's eyes and ears throughout their set. Their matching cowboy hats and white tank tops added to their southern charm, while their carefree vocals erased any irritation among those who were just trying to rest up before the sprint race.

Backstage access behind the paddock
This writer has been following F1 for years, but I've only recently had the opportunity to take my knowledge trackside and beyond. Being in the paddock grants a glimpse at the many faces behind the cameras, and grants visitors access to some great storytelling moments that would give anyone FOMO. For instance: watching Mercedes-AMG Petronas team principal and CEO Toto Wolff ride a scooter 100 feet from the team garage to the team lounge; grabbing a selfie with Sir Jackie Stewart (still in awe of that one); and catching a glimpse of McDreamy himself and his world-brightening smile.

Fans rushing the track after the race
It's a longstanding tradition for F1 fans to break through the fences and make their way across the hot track surface to watch the award ceremony after the race. Tradition aside, it's still a bit intimidating to witness from a hallway filled with more than 20 staffers who have just been ordered to form a human fence, filling in the gaps between the track fence and the pit lane. Watching the masses of fans rush the track to get near the podium area was surreal. Some were casually walking, while others were sprinting to get ahead of the rest of the crowd. The rush was worth it for the hundreds (if not thousands) of fans who got an incredible view of Verstappen receiving his 50th trophy.

Post-race shocker: Double driver disqualification
Hours after the race ended, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) disqualified Lewis Hamilton (the second place winner) and Charles Leclerc (who finished P6) after irregularities were found on their cars during a plank wear inspection. Following the grid shake-up, Williams Racing driver Logan Sargeant was moved into P10, thus scoring him his first point in F1 — plus, it happened in his rookie season, on his home turf. Sargeant is the first American F1 driver to score a point in 30 years.

Win or lose on the track, Austin's status as an F1 hotspot is something special. We hope next year comes fast, and we'll see you out there.

8 exciting events and specials to rev up for Formula 1 weekend in Austin

gearing up

It's race week, y'all. The United States Grand Prix has consistently brought in the largest crowds out of any Formula 1 race on the calendar, year after year. Its unrivaled success championed the expansion of F1 in the U.S., and helped bring in two additional races in Miami and Las Vegas.

If you’re coming in from out of town looking for some non-track events to feel your way through Austin, or you’re a local looking to avoid some of the trackside traffic, here are eight F1 events and specials happening throughout the city leading up to the race. We'll add more as we hear more.

Williams Racing Fan Zone
Williams Racing first brought its Fan Zone to Austin in 2022, and is coming back in 2023 with even more exclusive entertainment for fans. Located at 800 Congress Avenue downtown, the public is welcome to enter the Fan Zone beginning at 10 am Monday through Friday (and starting at 11 am on the weekend) to check out the FW45 car, catch a live Q&A session with Williams drivers Logan Sargeant and Alex Albon, grab some merch, and walk through a special Williams memorabilia museum.

Enjoy sipping on this passionfruit, lime, and tequila libation while sitting on Aba's outdoor patio or the new open-air Paseo Bar. The exclusive cocktail, topped with a checkered flag, will only be available for a limited time. Don't forget to pair it with one of the many brunch, lunch, or dinner offerings on the menu.

Formula Wonderfest in Bastrop
If you're looking to party anywhere that isn't Austin, you'll find yourself in great company at Formula Wonderfest in downtown Bastrop. The outdoor electronic music festival will feature an array of local talent, including DJ LA.D.DA, The Midnight Stroll, Deezie Brown, and Paul Oakenfold from 6 to 10 pm. Tickets ($35 per person) can be purchased via Eventbrite.

The Austin Pit Stop at Fair Market

The event promises live music from "top secret" bands, including Austin-based supergroup Shinyribs, which specializes in mixing blues, R&B funk, and soul into one spectacular performance. Plus, there will be a few special celebrity appearances, including Olympian Michael Phelps. Food trucks and beverages will be available on-site. More information about the event, including registration, can be found on globalpoker.com.

Celebrity parties at Superstition
F1 fans have two chances to party all night long at Superstition, on Thursday, October 19, and Saturday, October 21.

Por La Familia pop-up at Allen's Boots
In collaboration with Mexican singer-songwriter Carin León and Red Bull Racing partner Cash App, Austin's longtime Western wear shop Allen's Boots will be releasing new merchandise to celebrate León's new song "Por La Familia." The pop-up will run October 20-21 from 12 pm to 8 pm, and feature a tattoo bar, hat shaping, and more. All proceeds will benefit Red Bull Racing driver Sergio Perez's foundation for underprivileged children. Plus, the first 20 attendees to make a purchase during the pop-up will receive an additional item signed by Checo.

Hotel Zaza's superluxe F1 Packages

Spectacular SPI sandcastles, F1, ACL, and more Texas travel tidbits in October

where to travel right now

Fall is finally here, and with the (hopefully) cooler temps will come the chance to get outside and enjoy autumn activities all around Texas. Can't decide where to take a quick vacation, road trip, or staycation? Here are 11 events, special celebrations, and hotel happenings to help plan a getaway in October.

Along the Gulf Coast

What better way to celebrate the arrival of spooky season than by seeking out haunted ghost experiences in Corpus Christi? The Heritage Park Museum will showcase four reportedly haunted houses, and phantom chasers will delight in visiting the USS Lexington during the "Haunting on the Blue Ghost" event, October 6-31, to glimpse any ghostly crew members lurking about the vessel. The abandoned Nueces County Courthouse also has some ghouls of its own, with reports of voices, noises, and screams being heard following a hurricane that devastated the area more than a century ago.

Summer might be over, but a trip to the beach is always in the cards on South Padre Island. The annual Sandcastle Days falls on October 5-8, drawing the attention of sandcastle-building experts, food and craft vendors, and free family-friendly entertainment. Then, from October 19-21, classic cars and motorcycles rev up the brand new Chrome in the Sand Festival. The weekend will consist of live performances, car shows, a poker tournament, and more. Tickets for the Chrome in the Sand Festival begin at $20 for general admission, $55 for VIP, and $500 for VIP tables.

Around Austin

It's finally festival season down in the Texas Capital, beginning with the iconic Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park for two consecutive weekends from October 6-8 and 13-15. Luckily for Texas travelers, CultureMap's got the scoop on all things ACL – from can't-miss acts, to new eats, and more. One-day general admission tickets begin at $170. Weekend One tickets are waitlisted, but there are still one-day general admission tickets available for Weekend Two. Weekend passes for both weekends are waitlisted.

Following ACL, Austin will race to the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas from October 20-22. Red Bull Racing has already won the 2023 Constructors' Championship after its longstanding driver Max Verstappen won the Japanese Grand Prix, and Verstappen is well in the lead to win his third-consecutive World Drivers' Championship title. Three-day general admission wristbands are $475, two-day GA is $425, and three-day parking passes are $275.

In the Hill Country

It's never too late for a day by the pool, and the luxurious Lantana Spa at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa has opened reservations for their renovated pool cabanas with a special VIP poolside service and deluxe amenities. The private, two-person Canyons, Preserve, and Oaks Spa Cabanas each include an unlimited mimosa service, shaded seating and chaise lounges, a dedicated server from 11 am-5 pm, and more. Cabana reservations can be made by resort guests or in addition to a spa service, and rates begin at $400.

Nonprofit trade association Texas Hill Country Wineries is bringing back its Texas Wine Month passport this month for a self-guided journey through 45 local wineries with special discounts scattered along the way. With participating estates scattered throughout popular weekend destinations like Fredericksburg, Johnson City, and New Braunfels, it’s a chance to explore the Hill Country and soak in those autumn vibes. Wine passport-holders can visit up to four wineries daily to get the most out of a weekend getaway. Individual passes are $85, and couples' passes are $120.

Speaking of wineries, one Marble Falls-based winery is hosting regular events throughout October, which is perfect for those holding a Texas Wine Month passport. Every Saturday and Sunday, folks can venture out to Flat Creek Estates & Vineyard for their effervescent Bubbles and Brunch from 11 am to 3 pm. And if the trip transforms from a brunch outing into an all-day affair, guests catch live music from local Texas bands during the winery's weekend music series from 2-6 pm. Ernie Vasquez and Evan Grubbs are scheduled the weekend of October 7-8, and Stephen Daly and Andrew Lopez will play on the weekend of October 14-15.

Throughout Texas

If searching for beautiful fall foliage around Texas is at the top of the priority list, cabin rental agency Smoky Mountains' prediction map is the perfect guide to help estimate when the leaves will begin changing throughout the state and the U.S. The map predicts most of Texas will have minimal-to-patchy changing leaves by the end of October, and most of the state's trees will be at their color-changing peak in November.

Dallas-based luxury bus operator Vonlane added 60 new weekly departures to meet anticipated high demand for the fall travel season. There are now more than 430 trips per week departing Vonlane hubs in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Travelers can book their trips online for both one-way or round-trips, with fares beginning at $119.

Two unmistakable cutesy pink trucks are going on tour throughout Texas this month, with stops in several major cities. That's right – the cult craze Hello Kitty Cafe Truck and Barbie Truck are bringing a horde of new branded clothing and accessories to adoring fans in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Houstonians can head to First Colony Mall to say hi to Hello Kitty on October 7, then head to Baybrook Mall in Friendswood to catch the Barbie Truck on October 21. Barbie will stick around to visit The Woodlands Mall on October 28.

In Waco

The annual Magnolia Silobration at The Silos will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Chip and Joanna Gaines' Waco-based home design and lifestyle empire from October 19-21. Fixer Upper fans can visit the Silos to enjoy a three-day adventure of local artisan and food vendors, live music performances, shopping, and more. The festival is free, but note that certain ticketed experiences like the 20th anniversary tour, weekend rooftop passes, and Evenings with Chip and Jo are sold out.

Superstar singer and 'sentient tuxedo' Michael Bublé hands out his new whiskey in Houston

try this tuxedo's whiskey

A major tenet of journalism is to not bury the lede, meaning, don’t bury the most important info and just get straight to it. So, at risk of doing just that, here’s the top-line info:

Charming singer/actor/pitchman Michael Bublé will host a fan meet-and-greet and tasting event for his Fraser & Thompson Whiskey from 4 pm to 5 pm Thursday, December 7 at Spec’s - Fountain View (2020 Fountain View Dr.).

That means fans should plan for a long line, arrive early, and be ready to sip the Canadian showman’s celebrity spirit at what’s dubbed the Fraser & Thompson “Easy, Now” pop-up lounge within the store. Always one to spread the love to his fans, Bublé is expected to pass out sips only — officially, he’s not slated to sign bottles or pose for photos.

But, knowing his love for fans, there’s no telling if he’ll grab a phone for a selfie — or suddenly start “correcting” certain sparkling water bottles with a Sharpie (as displayed in this ad):

Smooth, subtle, and Bublé-backed — all for a mere 30 bucks!

We mention his love of fans specifically because Bublé’s whiskey retails for a mere $29.99. Hardcore whiskey purists might raise a judge-y eyebrow at the price, which to some, could suggest a rough bottom note. However, the blend, according to press materials, is crafted with “hand-selected aged liquid” to create an “inviting whiskey,” with “sweet fig and blood orange on the nose, and a subtle finish of caramel, vanilla, and a hint of spice.”

Wait…“hand-selected aged liquid?” Ummm...

Ah, further review finds it’s made with“ Canadian Whiskies with Kentucky Bourbon in Bardstown, Kentucky.” And all that crafting comes courtesy of Master Distiller and blender Paul Cirka, who co-founded the brand with Bublé. Whew.

Additionally, Fraser & Thompson also promises “less burn, more Bublé.” Hey, a distilled spirit from a silky-smooth songman has just gotta be smooth, yes?

The greatest press release in the history of Canadian celebrity-backed whiskies for $29.99

Okay, that’s the top-line info; now, let’s talk about this Fraser & Thompson press release. The official press announcement of the brand is very on-brand for the self-effacing superstar. Consider this passage from the release:

This whiskey is a triumph, an achievement, the product of years of hard work and collaborative efforts involving dozens of beverage alcohol professionals, yet we haven’t received much more than a winking emoji from Mr. Bublé when asked how we should advertise it. It strikes us as supremely ironic that a guy with such an extensive catalog of music has mastered radio silence.

We toyed with the idea of constructing an attractive, well-dressed scarecrow stuffed with hay next to a tape recorder playing “Haven’t Met You Yet,” but the coincidental sentiment felt too on-the-nose for our marketing team, whose calls keep getting bounced between assistants.

An attractive scarecrow? CultureMap receives thousands of press releases a week. In this editor’s 20-plus years of experience, this might be the best release...ever.

And it gets better. Bublé, who has his hands full being a superstar, father, husband, bottle editor, and frequent napper, was apparently hard to pin down for marketing. “At some point, from somewhere, he released this very nice statement that we’d like to share with you now,” the release continues:

“I spent many summers with my grandfather at the confluence of the Fraser and Thompson rivers in British Columbia," said Fraser & Thompson founder Michael Bublé. “When I heard Paul’s vision for creating a new kind of whiskey, I knew instantly what I wanted to call it. For the last three years, we worked together to perfect a whiskey blend that is equally elegant and approachable. We can't wait to pour you a glass!”

Meet a “sentient tuxedo of a man”

Well, hey, that sounds earnest enough. But the press team isn’t buying it. The press release responds:

“Isn’t that great? As if Michael is just the salt of the earth, sitting on a porch somewhere talking to the neighbors, and pouring you a glass of his smooth, delicious whiskey? This overbooked, overextended, sentient tuxedo of a man is thousands of miles away telling us, Easy, now,like he’s gone fishin’ instead of playing sold out shows in a new city every night.

(Please excuse us as we steal “sentient tuxedo of a man” for our Instagram bio/description.)

Later, as the release describes the Fraser & Thompson brand launch — all while trying to contact its star founder for comment:

Well, there you have it. I guess we just launched Fraser & Thompson. Tell the concierge at Michael’s hotel to pass along a thumbs up from us so we don’t interrupt his beauty sleep. We wouldn’t want to harsh Mr. Bublé’s mellow.

Sheesh, seems like Michael and the PR team might need to hash things out over a glass of a certain Canadian celebrity-backed blended whiskey, one retailing for a mere $29.99.


Michael Bublé will host the “Easy, Now” Fraser & Thompson pop-up lounge/tasting experience from 4 pm to 5 pm Thursday, December 7 at Spec’s - Fountain View (2020 Fountain View Dr.). Event is free; participants must be 21 years or older.

Gift experiences this holiday and you might just win Blake Shelton tickets

Celebrate More, Waste Less

What do you get the person who has everything? Hint: It's not another "thing."

This holiday season, consider gifting experiences instead of items — and you won't even have to wrap them.

According to Take Care of Texas, a statewide campaign to conserve and protect our one and only Lone Star State, about 8,000 tons of wrapping paper is used each year. Most wrapping paper contains glitter or metallic materials —which means it can’t be recycled — and ribbons, bows, and gift tags also aren’t recyclable.

To help you get into this new holiday groove of gifting time together instead of stuff, TCOT has a pretty amazing experience to give away.

Sign the Take Care of Texas pledge this winter and you'll be entered to win two tickets to Blake Shelton's Back to the Honky Tonk Tour, presented by Kubota.

Shelton's only stop in Texas is at the world-class Moody Center on March 1, 2024, where he'll be backed by opening acts Dustin Lynch and Emily Ann Roberts. This is your chance to hear Shelton sing "Austin" in Austin!

The prize package also includes a one-night stay at the luxurious Thompson Hotel Austin, so you can return from the Friday night concert and sleep in style.

To enter, simply click here and take the pledge to help keep our air and water clean, conserve water and energy, and reduce waste.

The contest is open through December 31, and you only need one entry per person. The winner will be drawn on January 2, 2024.

Spring Branch sows Wild Oats with opening of Underbelly's Texas tribute restaurant

now sowing in spring branch

A new option for Texas comfort food has arrived in Spring Branch. Wild Oats has started a quiet soft opening ahead of its official opening day of Friday, December 8.

Previously located at the Houston Farmers Market, Wild Oats is Underbelly Hospitality’s restaurant that pays homage to Texas’ various culinary traditions. After closing its original location in September, Wild Oats has relocated to a new development at 1222 Witte Road next to its sister concept, Underbelly Burger, and The Decoy, a new bar from the owners of Wakefield Crowbar with volleyball courts and a high-energy atmosphere.

Underbelly Hospitality culinary director Scott Muns tels CultureMap that the move gave the company an opportunity to make some changes to Wild Oats’ menu, which was developed by his predecessor, chef Nick Fine. He wanted to respect the restaurant's original vision while expanding to include traditional favorites that hadn't appeared on the menu before.

“There’s room for new items and new ideas,” Muns says. “It’s a new team with a new chef. I wanted them to be able to have a voice in the menu also.”

Those new items start with a wild boar shank that’s braised in salsa verde and served with grits that are treated like masa. For Muns, having a wild game dish on the menu feels appropriate for a restaurant devoted to Texas foodways. “If people think of it as pork, they’re going to be surprised by how much more depth of flavor you can get,” he says.

Muns and chef de cuisine Omar Munoz collaborated on a new seafood boil. Currently, it comes with shrimp, blue crab, and snapper, but the flexible format allows the kitchen to utilize whatever comes in from the restaurant’s seafood purveyors. Instead of a large steak, the menu now offers a smoked short rib as its beef option, which more explicitly pays homage to Texas barbecue.

Puffy tacos, a request from Underbelly Hospitality president Nina Quincy, allow the restaurant to put its spin on a dish that’s identified with San Antonio. In this preparation, the grits gets turned into the masa that becomes the tortillas, which are fried until they’re puffy. Diners can choose from beef suadero, smoked chicken, or pastor mushrooms as a filling.

“It takes technique to get a good puff,” Muns says. “Yesterday was the first day we had it on the menu. From one day’s data, it seem to be something people are going to gravitate towards.”

Menu staples have also been reworked. The chicken fried steak now comes with one patty as a default with the option to “Texas size” it by adding a second patty. When Wild Oats opened, the dish, which is made with wagyu beef from Texas-based R-C Ranch, cost more than $40. Now it starts at $18.

“We’ve tried to be mindful of pricing and making sure things don’t get too high,” Muns says. “The idea of a 40-something dollar chicken fried steak can seem ridiculous, even if you’re using wagyu and expensive products. I don’t want to go out and spend that much money on a chicken fried steak.”

The opening of Wild Oats completes a busy 2023 for Underbelly Hospitality. In addition to opening a second location of Underbelly Burger, the company recently welcomed Comalito, a taqueria developed in partnership with acclaimed Mexican chef Luis Robledo Richards, to Wild Oats’ original location at the Houston Farmers Market. Earlier this year, the company opened Pastore, an Italian seafood restaurant, next to its Georgia James steakhouse in the Regent Square mixed-use development.

“We’re thrilled to plant roots for Wild Oats on Witte Road,” Underbelly Hospitality partner Jeff Lindenberger said in a statement. “Community has always been our core vision for the reintroduction of Wild Oats, and we have drawn inspiration from our neighbors to build a space that reflects the warmth and diversity of Texas. This is a concept and menu we all really love and are eager to share it with our newfound neighbors and loyal patrons.”
