JUNE 27 | AFRICAN AMERICAN BOOK FESTIVAL: #BLACKLIVESMATTER

Austin’s African American Book Festival will explore love, perseverance, and intellectual growth under the heading #BlackLivesMatter on Saturday, June 27th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Carver Museum and Library. The event is free and open to the public.

Featured speakers include author M.K. Asante, novelist Beverly Jenkins, and UT professor Dr. Kevin Cokley.

Asante, an award-winning author, poet and filmmaker, will discuss his memoir “Buck”, the story of how he overcame the temptations of urban life to become not only an artistic tour de force, but also a tenured college professor.

With more than 30 titles to her credit, Jenkins is one of the most widely read writers of historical romances. Her work is set in the 19th century and features African American protagonists. She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, People, and The Dallas Morning News.

In an article for the Harvard Educational Review, Cokley challenges the notion that black students are anti-intellectual. Cokely, who is also a counseling psychologist, explores how issues of identity impact the achievement of African American students.

Once again, the festival is FREE and will host book discussions and a Texas author showcase.

Now in its ninth year, the African American Book Festival is a multi-generational event intended to promote literary exploration and library usage in the community.

JUNE 13 | THE AUSTIN CROWN AFFAIR FEAT. DJ KAY CALI

The era of #daylife in ATX continues for 2015 as the Unwind invites you to join us for The Austin Crown Affair. For centuries, hats, helmets, crowns, headdresses and other head fashion have symbolized individual style and utility while accentuating uniforms, outfits and ensembles. We look forward to your presence at what may be Austin’s first and only “hat party.” If your hat game is tight enough, you may enter the Austin Crown Contest and win a gift certificate!

Fellas, we urge you to come correct for Austin’s finest ladies. Throw on your finest Polo or button-downs, perhaps accessorized with a coordinating sport coat or blazer. But this time, top it off with a fly domepiece. Rock a fedora, a golf cap, a trilby, a porkpie or a panama. Just avoid the ball caps, this is not a Bobby Schmurda video. No sagging jeans either, use your belt. Instead of Jordans, try boat shoes, loafers, or mandals. #ManUp

Ladies, summer is right around the corner! Complement your sundress and sandals with the appropriate matching millinery. Feel free to rock a Badu wrap or go all Kentucky Derby on ‘em! If you got it, flaunt it...but save the workout gear for the gym. Also, we know you have at least 3 - 4 gentlemen in the “friend zone” that you can invite. Do the right thing and put them up on game.

The Austin Crown Affair takes place at Sully’s Side Bar, located at the corner of Colorado and 3rd Street in the Warehouse District. A happy hour menu of gourmet appetizers and refreshing cocktails will be available for your consumption. The incomparable DJ Kay Cali will provide a soundscape of 80’s - 90’s Soul, R&B and springtime classics.

The Austin Crown Affair is intended for mature audiences. This means 25+, as anything less would be uncivilized. The entrance fee is only $5, but we invite and encourage you to take advantage of the limited $2.50 pre-sale premium. Mature, appropriately dressed gentlemen are admitted gratis all day. We will be equipped to accept credit cards at the door. Discretion and early arrival are strongly advised.

Gentlemen, if you didn’t make it to the Tryst in April, check out the pics and see what you missed. The Unwind regularly brings out the most beautiful (and wifable) women in Austin, so govern yourselves accordingly.
