Tuesday Night Excursion: The Highball

Tuesday, 6:30-9:30 p.m.

The HighBall

Come play the night away as we celebrate the final evening of HighEdWeb in style at an Austin institution, The Highball. Resplendent in full retro décor, the Highball is the best diner (and more) this side of 1960. Featuring eight lanes of bowling; seven different themed karaoke rooms; skee ball; and a ballroom set to host the best dance party, Tex-Mex comfort food/heavy hors d’oeuvres, and karaoke competition that will leave you hoarse for days. And did we mention that for one glorious night, the Highball will be all ours? Come play with us at the Highball for our Tuesday Night Excursion.

Of special note: since we’ll be so very close to Halloween, and in the retro spirit the Highball embodies, we’re encouraging attendees to dress in their best late-1950s/early-1960s fashions, ala Mad Men, Happy Days and more!


A complimentary shuttle will run between the Hyatt Regency Austin, Marriott Courtyard Austin Downtown and The Highball on Tuesday evening from 6-10:15 p.m.
