Tasty Tuesdays: Best Patio Dining in Austin

There are lots of places to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful spring weather in Austin this time of year. About a month ago, I stopped in to Once Over Coffee Bar on S. 1st to meet Dan from Thrillist Austin for a chat before work and some much-needed joe.
I stepped outside before he arrived and checked out this unexpected and peaceful patio overlooking Bouldin Creek (which is flowing nicely thanks to all the rain we’ve gotten this year)
For this week’s Tasty Tuesday, I’d love to know what some of …

Tasty Tuesdays: Austin’s Most Underrated Restaurants

A personal example, I’ve always loved Houston’s. In fact, the restaurant was mentioned in previous Tasty Tuesday posts on best french fries and best burgers respectively. I’m also a huge fan of their salads and amazing ribs. I’ve been hoping to dedicate …

It was wonderful to be with family and friends and celebrate the life of my beautiful, determined, and loving grandmother who lived almost 93 years.

Today, my body is stiff from travel and stress. I’m tired and coming down with the cold I have been fighting off for weeks. On top of all this, I’m moving …

Tasty Tuesday: Best Office Lunch Caterer

If you work downtown like me, you might have the option once in a while to order in lunch for the office. I love those days since budget and distance can be less of an encumbrance than it would be if I was just going out to grab something quick and cheap.

At my company, our old standbys have tended to be Austin Java or Do Good Deli. What we loved about Do Good Deli is that they offered tasty, locally-sourced lunches and 100% of the proceeds went to Caritas. Sadly, …

Tasty Tuesdays: Best Cocktail in Austin

David Alan of the Tipsy Texan and Annie’s Cafe & Bar will join us on the KGSR Late Show this Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. to talk about what life is like as a bartender, mix some drinks from Annie’s new bar menu, and hopefully share some tips on how to make great drinks at home.
My go-to cocktails are either a vodka soda or margarita on the rocks made with freshly squeezed lime juice.
When I’m feeling literary, I’ll go for a Papa Doble, also known as a Hemingway Dauquiri. Ingredients …
