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.

San Antonio Cocktail Conference

This coming weekend, Jan. 17-20, is the second annual San Antonio Cocktail Conference.
I went for the day last year and attended just a couple classes, and from what I experienced, it was a fantastic event for anyone who is interested in drinking cocktails and/or making them at home. If Adam and I weren’t going to Los Angeles for a wedding, we would definitely be attending the conference, and this year, I wouldn’t make the mistake of driving there and back in one day by myself. This is a conference that …

Live Blog: Tipsy Tech History and Practice of Cocktail Mixology

This will be my second attempt at live blogging a class. The first was a Central Market cooking class geared to food bloggers in Feb. 2008.
It’s 6:30 p.m. on a Tuesday and I’m sitting in the very first of a 12-week class called Tipsy Tech: The History and Practice of Cocktail Mixology. The class is co-taught by Lara Nixon, writer of the blue ruin blog and owner of Boxcar Bar, a freelance cocktail and education service; it’s also taught by David Alan, aka the Tipsy Texan.

Austin Latte Art Smackdown

Want a little art with your addiction? If so, you are most likely a latte art lover like me. There is nothing better than a barista (aka espresso artist) who creates a beautiful tulip or rosetta with a flourish before sliding a mug of freshly brewed joe across the bar.
Visiting D.C. a little over a year ago, I enjoyed the beautiful latte art creations at M.E. Swing. I’ve also been the recipient of a very cool star at Teo in Austin. I’ve since learned that stars are not admissible in …
