Bingo Night + Happy Hour  
If you do not already have hump day plans, join us for happy hour + bingo TOMORROW Wednesday, April 24th at our very own neighborhood bingo hall, American Bingo on 1919 E. Riverside Dr. starting at 7pm! 

Grab a friend, coworker, or stranger and join the fun. 
A few things to keep in mind:
  • Bring cash to play! There is an ATM machine, but might as well come prepared.
  • Try to get there a bit earlier to reserve your spot at our table!
  • This place is no longer BYOB, so please do not bring any outside food or drinks. They do, however, sell beers, margaritas and food for a very low price. 
It's My Park Day
Last month, we joined Austin Parks Foundation at their biggest city-wide volunteer event, It's My Park Day! We helped clean and improve the Country Club Creek Greenbelt in our neighborhood and were able to make way for the new trail that is well underway. 

Riverside Lighting Initiative
In an effort to keep our streets safe, Friends of Riverside ATX will start an initiative to advocate for better lighting in our Friends of Riverside ATX neighborhood. If you have a place in mind that you know needs better lighting, please send us over a copy of a marked map to indicate where you think the City needs to provide extra lighting and we will petition it as an organization if it seems like a popular request. 

Please email us at 
Earth Day
Earth Day was yesterday, but can you make a pledge to reduce your carbon footprint all year round? Do your part by doing the following: 
  • Ditch the bottled water - invest in reusable water bottles and take them everywhere you go
  • Say no to plastic bags - instead, buy your own shopping bags and reuse them!
  • Say no to plastic straws 
  • Buy local and seasonal 
  • Try walking instead of driving 
  • Take shorter showers
  • Unplug your devices when not in use
  • Eat more veggies and less meat
  • Recycle, reuse and re-purpose
