Sway has been held up as one of Austin's best Thai restaurants since opening in 2012, but for those who find it hard to make it to the South 1st location, you're in luck: The restaurant's second location at the Domain NORTHSIDE opens today, and it's serving all the hits. Try the Son in Law, with braised pork shoulder and a crispy egg, or the creamy squash curry. And don't forget their drinks—the colorful Tuk Tuk Sling is delicious.

The Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin and the Visual Arts Center presents "Affordable Dream House," an exhibition featuring ten artists from the 2018 Studio Art MFA graduating class. Tonight, from 5:30-7:30pm, the exhibition is free and open to the public, and will include in-depth discussions between pairs of graduate students in Studio Art and Art History. The exhibition is located at the Visual Arts Center.

In search of exotic animals alongside your cocktails? Head to Academia for their weekly pop-up Zoology 101, in support of conservation awareness at Wild Things Zoofari. From 7-10pm, Zoofari will bring in wild animals (think baby kangaroos) while the bar serves Monkey Shoulder cocktails.
