AUSTIN, Texas - An event has been set up for Saturday, April 4 for Austinites to remain physically separate but still hang out together and help support local businesses and musicians affected by the cancellation of South by Southwest (SXSW) and closures due to the coronavirus.
To participate in the ATX Living Room Picnic, people are asked to purchase a meal from a restaurant, grab a bottle of wine or growler of beer and then spread out a blanket and safely enjoy from the comfort of your home.
