The three things you need to know today in Austin: Tue, May 29

By Erin Kuschner

Still coming down from that burger coma, eh? We feel you. If your goal today is working off everything you ate over Memorial Day Weekend, head to Republic Square Park for their Tuesday free fitness class,  Rō Fitness. Rowing machines will be set up throughout the park starting at 6:30pm, and an instructor will be there to lead through a workout. 

The Paramount's Summer Classics Series is back in action, and you can make it a double feature today: Catch the Marx Brothers’ Monkey Business before The Bank Dick, which stars W.C. Fields as a n’er-do-well who winds up working at the bank. Your ticket is good for both films, and the air-conditioned theater is a welcome respite from the heat. 

Play tourist for an evening with a Full Moon Bat Tour from Congress Kayaks, a relaxing float down the river that's brilliantly lit by tonight's Flower Moon. It's only their second one of the year, and costs $35 for a two-seater kayak (bring a friend!). The tour starts at 7pm.
