Update 12:25

The concert has been canceled, Fox 7 reports.

Original post:

There is at least one holiday weekend event that hasn't yet been canceled: the Emerald Point Bar & Grill on Lake Travis still plans to have the 90s rapper Vanilla Ice perform on Friday night.


The lakeside establishment is considered a restaurant under Gov. Greg Abbott's executive order that required bars to close, because it makes more than 51% of gross receipts from food, according to the Austin Chronicle, which first reported the event.

The venue organizer told the Texas Tribune Wednesday night that only 84 tickets had been sold, and that concert would be capped at 450 people.



Another 90s favorite, Color Me Badd, is still set to perform Saturday at Emerald Point.
