Austin Events in July 2013

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.

Associate Publisher (and Austin food event regular) Jenna Noel tells me that they will deliver this free quarterly magazine around town at these locations starting Monday.

The issue will include Joe from Rockstar Bagels, who is joining us on the KGSR late show tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. From the table of contents, it looks like there will be articles about chefs and romance, gardening, local sweeteners, tea time, …

Dudes Love Taco Trucks

The other night I had the unique pleasure of joining Mando from Taco Journalism, David the Soup Peddler, Logan from Boots in the Oven, Food Touring guest blogger Tom, Food Touring muse Adam, and Mando’s adorable wife Ixchel for a South Austin taco tour.
We were supposed to meet at 6:30 p.m. at the gordita/taco truck that parks just west of Thornton on Oltorf. Adam and I were a little late getting there and we received a dejected call from David telling us the truck was not there even though it’s …
