The three things you need to know today in Austin: Tue, May 8

It's supposed to hit 90 today, so how about a dip in our favorite watering hole? Barton Springs' late night swims have started up again, so you can take a moonlit dip for free every night from 9 to 10pm (otherwise it's a cool $3, which, let's be honest, isn't enough to keep us away). 

Steak Out! is back at Cosmic Coffee and Beer with a night of grilling from Dan Dyer and Evan LeRoy, pitmaster at Cosmic's own backyard trailer, LeRoy and Lewis. Dinner is cooked over a grill and will be available from 6-8pm, live music will begin at 9pm and tickets will be available at the door for $35.

There's still time to check out Bike Night at Circuit of the Americas if you haven't ventured out to the track yet. From 6pm until dark every Tuesday through July 3, cyclists can bike the 20 turns over 3.4 miles at your own pace—or try to beat your friends. Registration required.
