  • Esther's Follies
    Although Esther's Follies' variety show of music, magic, and comedy recalls the vaudevillian entertainment of yesteryear (albeit with a more acerbic modern bent), the nostalgia goes beyond just the performances. The longstanding venue and comedy troupe was named after Esther Williams, the Golden Age starlet whose career as a professional swimmer led to numerous iconic MGM films. Posters for several of these pictures are plastered throughout the space, and an undersea mural bustling with brightly-hued coral, kaleidoscopic marine life, and even a Loch Ness monster further contributes to Esther's otherworldly, aquatic theme. The magical environment, along with the shows themselves, have wowed audiences and Austin Chronicle critics alike. On the production end, Esther's Follies busts guts in record speed with satirical quips on current events; relevant parodies; and high-stepping, fast-paced comedy sketches. Resident magician Ray Anderson keeps things light with levitation illusions known to dazzle crowds. As the Follies cast ignites into choral skewerings of front-page newsmakers, audiences will laugh so hard that giggles come out their noses.

  • Dub Academy
    Dub Academy is just like any other school: a teacher delivers a lesson at the front of the room while students sit at their desks. Granted, each desk has a double set of turntables, and the classroom walls are splattered in vibrant graffiti. But the focus here is still education?all of the pupils are learning how to put on a memorable DJ performance. The academy staff offers DJ lessons for complete beginners as well as advanced classes for those interested in honing their craft. Specialized Turntablism classes even cover the intricacies of the turntable, from scratching and juggling records to putting bandaids on the records you've scratched too often. Aspiring DJs choose between TRAKTOR and Serato Scratch Live software to best customize their playlists. The academy also hosts classes on music production and management. Production sessions give the student the option to lean how to build tracks from scratch using either Ableton Live Software or Maschine by Native Instruments.

  • Oh! Snap Photo Booths
    As portraits slide out of Oh! Snap Photo Booths printer, they emerge bright, colorful, and often a little wacky. Photo booths capture cheerful moments and playful images, from friends posing together in goofy glasses to costumed youngsters acting out Wild West scenes to couples draped in feathery boas. The booths are accompanied by expert attendants, who assemble the easy-to-use touch-screens, professional lighting, and backdrops. Upon request, the accommodating staffers can supply subjects with whimsical props, custom backgrounds, and a spread of free "cheese".

  • Texas Jumping Beans
    From the grinning rainbow-colored caterpillar to the rainbow-spiraled bouncy tent and red knight's castle, Texas Jumping Beans envelopes kids in a kaleidoscopic fun house. While sock-clad tots tumble through a 12,000-square-foot supervised playground, parents sit back with lemonade from the vending machines. As guardians surf the Internet, kids slip down giant air-filled slide and commandeer the mammoth inflatable pirate's ship before retiring to the lobby to eat their brown-bagged lunches brought from home. After filling up their food vesicles, toddlers wade through the 12'x10' ball pond and explore tunnels, and their bigger brethren burn energy ricocheting off the plush yellow dinosaurs they will clone for research later in their home laboratories. The bouncy playground also makes for energetic birthday parties, which the center can host any time of day, any day of the week, accommodating anything from a three-hour fiesta to an all-night slumber party. Additionally, Texas Jumping Beans rents springy houses and picnic tables for at-home shindigs.
