EAST AUSTIN — This Sunday, April 12th from 1 to 5 p.m. the sixth annual East Austin Urban Farm Tour (aka EAUFT) is happening. The "sip and stroll" event will offer guests guided tours of Boggy Creek, HausBar, Rain Lily and Springdale farms, each located within walking distance of each other. Plus, there will be local brewers, wine merchants and mixologists offering drinks, and restaurants like Contigo, Qui and Dai Due offering bites. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here. Free entry for children 10 and under. [EaterWire]

CRAWFISH WIRE — Oysters are out and crawfish is in on Dai Due’s menu, starting tonight. The atypical boil starts with a briny broth "of preserved citrus, herbs, garlic and strong spices" before simmering the fresh crawfish. Gruet sparkling wines will still be half off, meaning $20 bottles and $4 glasses. [EaterWire]

CRAWFISH WIRE — Whisler’s is celebrating the start of crawfish season with free crawfish (on a first-come, first-serve basis) and live music by the Boss Street Band on Sunday, May 3rd. Doors start at 2 p.m., music starts at 5 p.m. and sangria, Bloody Marys, mimosas, spring cocktails and Thai Kun will all be available for purchase.[EaterWire]
