Lots going on this month in Austin, so I decided it was time for a round-up!

Red Rabbit Bakery, a vegan bakery that happens to make my favorite doughnuts in town, is offering a special until Thursday at 7 pm: order a dozen doughnuts for reproductive justice activists at the Texas Capitol, and Red Rabbit will donate all profits from every sale to Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas.

Red Rabbit Bakery goods — which were previously only available at Austin farmer’s markets and coffee shops — will be available at Red Rabbit Bakery’s trailer, located at E. 53rd Street on North Loop, starting Wednesday, July 10.

On Saturday, July 20, Tamale House East will host a launch party for Austin Breakfast Tacos: The Story of the Most Important Taco of the Day by Taco Journalism‘s Mando Rayo and Jarod Neece. I’m especially excited about the book because Adam contributed a recipe and we submitted a written piece that will be included as well.


Also on Saturday, July 20, Arro, a French restaurant helmed by executive chef Andrew Curren (of 24 Diner), and his wife, pastry chef Mary Catherine Curren –located at 601 W. Sixth Street — will open to the public.

Sunday, July 21 is the Slow Food Austin Grub Trivia; I’ll be participating with the Soup Peddler team. For spectators, the price of entry is $20 for Slow Food members and $25 for non-members. Activities will include tastings from more than a dozen Austin restaurants, a raffle, and a hog butchering demo with live auction of the cuts. For those that would like to put together a team — the price of entry is $200 for up to six players.
Monday, July 22 is the last day to submit your ballot for the Austin Chronicle‘s 2013 “Best of Austin” poll. There are lots of food and drink-related categories that you can weigh in on.
On Friday, July 26, the HEB at Mueller — located at 51st and Berkman — will open to great acclaim by those of us who live close by. I’m more excited about this store than I should probably admit.
On Wednesday, July 31, David Alan will be speaking and signing copies of his book, Tipsy Texan: Spirits and Cocktails from the Lone Star State at Book People. David is the person who first turned me on to learning more about cocktail culture and history, and I’m very much looking forward to getting a copy of his book to try out his recipes at home.
Will I see you at any of these events this month?
