(Austin FC)

Austin FC, the soccer team that will be the city's first major league sports franchise, announced an update to the design of its $260 million stadium that includes a beer hall and expanded merchandise area. From a release sent by the team:


"The North Building design has been updated to prominently feature a new Beer Hall available to all ticketed guests before, during, and after stadium events. The newly created interior-space will feature 18 taps, 20 TV screens, a large video wall, and air-conditioning in the 400-person capacity space. The Beer Hall will be located on the second floor of the building and will also feature a limited set of food options accompanying the wide selection of beers and other drink options."

Austin FC just signed its first player. The stadium is scheduled to open next spring.

As Austin navigates its homelessness crisis, city voters will decide starting Monday whether to reinstate a ban on sitting, lying and camping in certain areas of the city. Proposition B has drawn impassioned support and opposition and is perhaps the most contentious item on the May 1 ballot.

Austonia received editorials from both sides of the debate. Arguing in favor of Prop B is Cleo Petricek, a Democrat and co-founder, along with Travis County GOP Chairperson Matt Mackowiak, of the Save Austin Now political action committee, which has led the charge to reinstate the camping ban. Opponent Emily Seales is a licensed clinical social worker and advocate with over 20 years of experience working and volunteering in homeless services in Austin and around the country. She is currently on staff at the Sunrise Homeless Navigation Center and is board co-chair of Open Door.
