Local Food Gifts from Austin – SXSW

If you are an out-of-towner visiting Austin during SXSW, you might be thinking –DAMN the food here is good and I want to take some back home to my loved ones. I’ll be making a week-long trip in April to DC and NY and wanted to bring some Austin and Texas-based foods for my friends and family to enjoy.

Oh So Fino

If variety is the spice of life, then FINO has mastered the art of living.
I attended the Blogger Happy Hour hour in Jodi’s place, and when I showed up, about 30 people were gathered on the restaurant’s beautifully decorated outdoor patio – the kind of patio everyone dreams of having in their home, with sleek yet comfy furniture as Mediterranean-inspired as the menu. (When I mentioned at my next happy hour that I’d just come from FINO, my friend asked, “Is that the place with the great patio upstairs?” Yep, …
