Movies Under the Stars: This Weekend and Beyond

I’ve always wanted to go to a drive-in movie and have never been but with cooler nights coming soon, I’m starting to think about being outside again and enjoying an outdoor film and a picnic. Both Whole Foods Austin and Treat have started showing classic films from the 70s, 80s, 90s on site.
Treat is offering a different theme each week — “Back to School” continues through Wednesday and will be followed by “Time Travel.” All films start at 8:30 p.m. and are projected onto a 1959 Teardrop trailer at the …

Last-Minute Grocery Store Blues

Last night, Adam and I began putting together dinner at around 8 p.m. I had picked up tilapia and these huge beautiful artichokes at Whole Foods at lunch yesterday. We decided to make oven-roasted artichokes and mango salsa with sauteed fish. We were missing a few simple ingredients — limes and cilantro for the salsa, lemons for the artichokes.
I volunteered to run out to the store. Adam lives just north of the Mueller development in East Austin and the closest stores to his house are Randalls and Casa Grande. Normally, …

Tasty Touring on YouTube

Now that I’m the proud owner of an iPhone 3GS (aka a blogger’s best friend), I had to try the video function as soon as possible. On Friday, Adam and I picked up Katie and I interviewed them about cajun cuisine and seafood in Austin. On Sunday, I began interviewing folks during the biweekly Sno Cone Club “meeting” at Casey’s on 51st. You can check out new videos anytime on www.tastytouring.com. Here’s one example:

What kinds of video would you like to see on Tasty Touring in the future? I’m thinking …

Austin Food Lover’s Tattoos

I’m so intrigued by beautiful tattoos. My hair stylist Sharon has the most gorgeous sleeve of beautifully colored body art on one of her arms. While spending the evening at Thai Fresh the other night for a wonderful Tipsy Texan drinks and Thai appetizer cooking class, I noticed that a server at the restaurant had these awesome tattoos of produce on her inner forearms.
Madeline Pizzo told me she was a vegan for a long time and while living in Atlanta, got her first tattoo to honor one of her favorite …
