Cool Off With Cocktails at the Movies
There truly is no greater summertime activity than watching a movie in a fully darkened theater. Think about it: you’ve got air conditioning, popcorn, and the surreal experience of staggering out into the full sunlight once the film’s over.

Best Local Liquid Meals for When It’s Too Hot to Chew
It’s no exaggeration to say that spending the summer in Austin qualifies as an extreme sport. With the heat (when was it last under 100 degrees?), the humidity, and the pulsing weight of all that sunlight, traveling the short distance from air-conditioned car to air-conditioned building can feel like trekking across the Sahara in your bare feet.

Texas Book Festival’s Literary Libations Events Start This Week
Booze and literature are well-established as bedfellows powerful enough to form their own minor genre. Take the Kingsley Amis’ poetic musings on the existential hangover, for example, or Sweetbitter, last year’s smash hit novel that took readers behind the scenes of New York’s whiskey-fueled restaurant industry.

Weekend Wine
A few regular readers sent notes asking why I didn’t include Texas Cabernets last week. Given how many wonderful dark red wines made in Texas, they have a point. There is one small concern.

Pacific Asian Eatery Slated for Late Summer Opening
The Tiki bar craze that’s been sweeping Austin lately has made me think back to the Tiki bar craze that started it all. When American servicemen came home from World War II, they brought with them a fondness for all things tropical. Spending time stationed in the South Pacific is, as it turns out, a good way to pick up enthusiasm for kitsch Tiki pastiche.

Weekend Wine
With temperatures soaring, we'd certainly forgive you for looking for something icy to drink this weekend. In the wine world, that means whites or rosés. I have to admit, I’ve been grabbing good quality Pilsner beers like the ABGB Industry Pils. Or a nice cold Live Oak Hefeweizen.

24 Diner x Bell’s Brewery: Illuminatily Delicious

Ice Cream of Genius (with the Light Brown Caramel)
My friend Julie Holden makes some damned good ice cream, tell you what. Regular flavors, the woman’s a wizard. Slightly unusual, she handles it like a boss. Beyond that, she even accepted my challenge to make wasabi ice cream and Sriracha ice cream – and rendered nothing less than creamy, delicious perfection.
