Join us in some fun on Do512 Day on Saturday, May 12! What is “Do512 Day” you ask? It’s a day to honor our love of all things Austin. In 2014, the City of Austin Mayor‘s Office declared May 12th (5/12) “Do512 Day” to celebrate Do512’s commitment to helping people answer the question, “What should I do today?”

Each year, Do512 and Do512 Family wish to mark the occasion with some festivities, and we have a few plans that you can enjoy with us!
