More after the break

Hot Sauce Fest
The 2009 Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival turned out to be a HUGE success! The turnout was great, it was cooler outside than it has been in months AND, thanks to all of you, we were able to raise $14,269 and 29,413 pounds of food (8,000 pounds more than last year) for the Capital Area Food Bank. I was a little too busy to try most of the sauces but one of the perks of this is the leftover hot sauces that come back to our office this week. Check out the list of winners over at

Back to School at UT Co-op Bookstore
It's that time of the year again. The heat is starting to die down a little bit, the days are getting a little shorter and the streets are filling up with the fresh young faces of a new batch of students. To welcome the newest residents of our fair city we will be hanging out in front of the University Co-op Bookstore on the drag (Guadalupe). Stop by to visit, the first 10 people to say the code words "I wanna win" to our representative will get to pick from our prize box for concert tickets, DVDs and more!

Best of Austin Issue This Week!
We are very very close to getting the final numbers and are excited to release the results for our 2009 Best of Austin Poll this week. You'll see who's who in Austin when the issues hit the stands on Thursday morning (Sept 3). Also, we will be giving out a few spots on the guest-list for our annual Best of Austin Party soon so keep your eyes open in the Chrontourage Newsletter or on the Online Contest page for your chance to win!

One last thing... we've been lucky enough to get our hands on some extra wristbands for the ACL Music Fest on Oct 2-4 and we are passing on the love to our newsletter subscribers. Enter the contest online at and you might just get lucky yourself!
