Austin, Texas: Summer Open Air Movie Nights in Austin
Summer Outdoor Movie Nights at Central Market North
With wholesome gourmet food and a sun dappled outdoor deck and play area, Central Market North is an eatery with a very Austin atmosphere. The spacious, airy patio is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and a delicious dinner, listen to a band every Friday through Sunday, or just grab a casual lunch and watch the kids play. The air is filled with the happy chatter of children and the silver industrial railings and Blue Moon beer umbrellas lend to the easy-going scene. On the warmest Texas summer afternoon the deck and playscape stay cool and breezy thanks to the huge shady oak trees. The winding decomposed granite paths and backdrop of some neat new townhomes with an enviable short walk to Central Market give the area a park like feel.
According to Gary Manus, the cafГ© manager, something new and interesting this summer at Central Market North is the Summer Outdoor Movie Series. Around dusk, an outdoor movie is projected onto a 30 foot tall inflatable movie screen in the park area (he says make sure to bring your chairs or blankets). Blue Moon on tap is offered for $2.00 and there are wine specials to be had as well on movie nights.
Central Market is known for its high quality, fresh food. And nothing beats a nice glass of wine with your (very amply portioned) Chinese Chicken salad or salmon burger topped with seaweed salad. You can order your wonderful glass of wine in the cafГ©, but did you know you can buy a bottle of wine in the market, and bring it to the cafГ© where they will uncork it for you? One enterprising couple was observed with a soft cooler filled with ice, which kept their chardonnay nicely chilled while they ate.
The delicious food and wine, breezy shaded deck, joyous sounds of children playing, clinking silverware and general bustle of people make Central Market North a very enjoyable dining experience. it is a lovely way to spend an afternoon lunch with the kids or an evening on the patio, listening to music and taking in the scene.
