The three things you need to know today in Austin: Tue, May 1

Bought your ACL weekend pass? Good. Now that you've got that settled (and depleted your entertainment stash for the next few weeks), here are a few more activities to take advantage of today—ones that won't hit your wallet so hard. 

Cosmic Coffee & Beer is hosting its first Steak Out! with Dan Dyer, which takes place every Tuesday this month but launches tonight. Each week, Dan will partner with a guest chef (tonight features Lou Lambert) to grill over a fire from 6 to 8pm. Tickets, which are $35 and can be purchased at the door, include dinner (a steak and sides) and live music.

You don't have to wait until Cinco de Mayo to start partaking in tequila-friendly festivities. Head to Azul anytime between 5 and 9pm tonight to score a free taco after purchasing one of their blood orange and anchiote margaritas. It's all part of Azul's five nights of Cinco de Cinco, a week-long celebration leading up to Cinco de Mayo.

Bike Night continues to dominate Circuit of the Americas on Tuesdays. Ever dreamed of careening around a course in a race car? Now you can come close, albeit a bit more slowly. From 6pm until dark every Tuesday through July 3, cyclists can bike around the COTA track. Take the 20 turns over 3.4 miles at your own pace—or try to beat your friends. Registration required.
