It’s rare that I do an events/newsy post, I usually post information about upcoming events I think are cool in my Facebook group, but there is so much cool stuff happening over the next few weeks that I felt it was time for a roundup.
Apologies in advance to any vegans or vegetarians in the group, for some reason, there’s lots of flesh-eating events coming up over the next few weeks.
Without further ado, here’s what’s on my radar for Austin food lovers:

Tasty Tuesdays: Best Brunch Food Trailers
