Hot Ways to Beat the Austin Heat

The sun is trying to kill us. If its not raining its hot and humid. Things only get worse as the summer drags on all the way until October. How can we survive that? We got together and did some brainstorming on how to survive the summer sun.

Buy a Pool on Amazon

Sure, its not cheap, a massive waste of precious resources and you have to work everyday to maintain it but that’s also an excuse to swim everyday. My co-hosts thought it was a bad idea but guess who is jealous they are not invited over?

Hose off in the Front Yard

Nothing like an old fashioned water hose to get the job done! Keep in mind the water will come out scalding and that your neighbors might judge you a bit since we should be under heavy water restrictions. In the end, however, you will cool off and the lawn will be a lighter shade of brown.

Break in to an Apartment Pool

Drive around looking for crappier apartments without gated parking lots. Most likely they don’t have someone guarding the pool like the fancy ones do. If you do get asked, just make up a name and number (you are screwed if they have a clipboard or iPad out). Another tip: bring stuff to BBQ and extra snacks for other people. With any luck, you’ll make friends with actual residents.

Look Out for Promo Pool Parties

Not in the mood to sneak? Well, a lot of apartments, hotels and neighborhoods actually host parties to draw in potential residents. Usually they have free food, DJS and swag. All you have to do is pretend you want to move in and give them some info for their sales people to call you. As a matter of fact, just come to a 101X Pool Party!

Move to the Beach

Seriously. Why are you still in this hellhole of an overpriced hot city? When its not scorching their are allegories, freezes and boil water notices.

Move to the Mountains

Better yet, go work at a ski resort. Weed is legal, the off-season is pleasant and the pay is good.


Get Nude

Like the weird bike dude in Austin does!

Float the River

Nothing beats grabbing a cooler and heading to the San Marcos, Guadalupe or Comal and spending a the day  on the tube lazily drifting away.

Book a Cruise!

They are cheaper than you think and trying really hard to get people out to sea after being shutdown do to covid. Just be sure to BUY the drink package and DO NOT go into the casino.

Go to Vegas

Just like the cruise industry, casinos are hurting. Though Nevada is miserable in the summer every property has a pool!


Hibernate until the City Freezes Again

If its not extremely hot, it is extremely cold! But hey, at least you can go outside and play.

Jump off a Cliff

Just be sure to do it in deep enough water.

Huff Freon

Getting high on A/C fluid has a cooling effect (plus that entire zone out and escape thing that happens).

Just Die Already

Or just die. Eff it.
