Next Saturday, Wags Hope and Healing, a local animal-rescue group, hosts a family-friendly benefit for dogs like this little guy. The fundraiser features a 30-40-minute “pack walk,” doughnuts and refreshments, as well as lots of raffle items from local businesses like Lake Austin Spa and Flintrock Falls. There’ll be plenty of adoptable doggies on hand, […]

(2 locations) It figures that a donut shop creative enough to come up with the Morning After donut, above (“the cure for what ails ya”), would avoid cookie-cutter decorating. Both locations of The Donut Hole (and the latest location in Oak Hill) are festively covered with

(map) Yes, Menchie’s is a chain. But boy, is it good! This brand-new location is actually the only one in Austin, and they really made a splash on opening day, with balloons, t-shirts and most important, free yogurt. Menchie’s yogurt is certified with real, live cultures, and they offer sugar-free, gluten-free and no-corn-syrup options, so you […]

(map) Zack’s just opened in Steiner Ranch. Three guys who have a lot of restaurant, wine and beer experience, and who just happen to live in Steiner, wanted to see a casual, locally-oriented dining option there. So they did it themselves!

(maps) It’s easy to list all the great things that make us happy about the Cho brothers’ happy hour. It’s available every day of the week, even on weekends. You can get $4 glasses of wine, and deals on beer and sake. And some of the freshest, most creative sushi in town is just $3. […]

(map) They’ve been working on this for months, and it is finally perfect. As you can see, this isn’t a thin, cracker-type crust. It’s about one-third as thick as the regular crust, which lets you taste more of the toppings and less bread. Speaking of which, the new, thinner crust only supports two toppings (that […]

(map) Two weeks ago, the Austin Museum of Art put on their annual food and wine festival, La Dolce Vita. Out of over 40 restaurants, the crowd chose Steiner Steakhouse as Best Restaurant for their Lobster Mac & Cheese. The chef says he served over 400 pounds of the rich, decadent dish, made with penne […]

These German treats have just started appearing out here. Local baker Lisa says that the name refers to a certain style of pretzel with thin “arms” and a plump, full middle. She bakes them fresh every day so they’re always soft and chewy. Available in four flavors: plain salted, mustard and cracked pepper, jalapeno-cheddar, and […]
