"...I-35, 442-5337): Whip In's motto "keeping it good for our 'hood" aptly captures the spirit of Austin's neighborhood food markets that tailor themselves to the unique character of their milieu. The Whip In, known for its eccentric decor, friendly staff, large wine and beer selections, local products, and specialty coffee, has been seeing to the needs of Travis Heights since 1986, and it may be the only grocery in town with a piano on the premises...."

"...At first the local references hit with dull clunks. Denton touches many of the home bases: Avenue B Grocery, Threadgill's, Mount Bonnell, and so forth, and it is only in the last third of the novel that there seems to be any particular reason that any of this is happening here, except I suppose that a guy who strips naked every time the moon is full and waits in his "perky" (i.e..."
"...Jack is a man at the center of Denton's middle-aged cast of real people -- a man who finds himself outdoors, "bare ass," and in love. The year is 1993 and the setting is Austin, Texas (the first chapter includes references to The Austin Chronicle and the Avenue B Grocery)..."

It follows two sisters (played by real-life twins Tilly and Maggie Hatcher), one who is drifting – away from a boyfriend, toward an overseas job – while the other tussles for control of a co-owned vintage shop in Austin...."
"...Across from the City Market, for a time, was the Red and White Grocery, where housewives in the area could phone in their orders for bread, milk, or eggs, and expect delivery by a kid on a bike or on foot. Until 1971, the Matamoros Restaurant was at Sixth; Ferris Drug was between Sixth and Seventh..."
