Pack your poncho—rain or shine, the Verde crew will have watch parties all Saturday as Austin FC takes on Minnesota United FC at 7 p.m.
The match will show on the CW Austin, UniMás Austin and the Austin FC app/website, but for those looking for a more immersive matchday experience, here's a list of Austin-area watch parties scheduled for this weekend.
Hopsquad Brewing Co., 2307 Kramer Ln
Rain or shine this weekend y'all. Our big ol' outdoor LED screen is waterproof. Working on getting as much cover as possible, but plan to wear your ponchos. You wouldn't not go to @Q2Stadium just because of a little rain, right? #Verde— Hopsquad Brewing Co. (@HopsquadBrewing) April 29, 2021
Rain can't stop the party at Hopsquad Brewing. The site for Los Verdes watch parties has equipped itself with a brand-new waterproof LED screen. Doors open at 12 p.m. and live music will go all day starting at 1 p.m. as a crowd gathers to watch the game. Bring a poncho, a lawn chair and an empty stomach—there's plenty of beer and local food trucks onsite.
Celis Brewing, 10001 Metric Blvd
Austin Anthem, the fan club that brought over 1,000 viewers to a watch party for Austin FC's season opener, is back with a watch party planned at Celis Brewing. Starting at 5 p.m., expect more beers and food trucks at this location, and make sure to bring your Verde gear. RSVP here.
Austin FC Pub Club
If you're looking to enjoy the game at your neighborhood bar, check out the 30+ Pub Club partners that will be streaming the match around town, including Black Sheep Lodge, The Far Out Lounge and Jack and Gingers, to name a few. From Round Rock to San Marcos, there's plenty of places along the I-35 strip that will stream the big match come Saturday.

A week after Texas added two congressional seats and California lost one, state officials reported a population decline in 2020 for the first time in the Golden State's history.
California fell by over 182,000 people from January 2020 to January 2021, dropping almost 0.5% to cap out at around 39.5 million people. It is still the nation's most populous state.
For over thirty years, California has seen more people leave than move in from other states, state officials said, with 6.1 million people moving out and 4.9 million coming in last year. Immigration and births kept California growing, but the state saw a shrink in international migration in 2020 due to COVID and the White House's hold on visas.
Of the steady flow of ex-Californians moving to other states, more are moving to Texas than any other state. Many are relocating to Austin, which has been labeled a "little California" by billionaire resident Elon Musk and continues to grow astronomically.
Meanwhile, California cities including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco saw a population decline.
With immigration and state migration on the decline, the Golden State was also hit with a spike in deaths- 51,000 people died from COVID in 2020, and all but seven of the state's counties saw death rates higher than the three-year average.
Still, the California Department of Finance said a "slightly positive annual growth" can be expected next year as the state recovers from COVID deaths and political repercussions.
