Threadgill's: The Cookbook
Food Story  November 8, 1996
"...If your first reflex is to judge a book by its cover, you'll be missing at least half the fun of Eddie Wilson's new Threadgill's: The Cookbook.

Judging from the cover, you'd expect to find a few menu secrets from Austin's downhome institution and maybe learn how to cook some of your favorite dishes at home...."

Harmonic Convergence
Threadgill's perfectly weds Austin's music and food cultures
Food Story  September 26, 2008, by Virginia B. Wood
"...(See the Chronicle ACL Fest Supplement feature "ACL's Food Court Continues to Expand Its – and Our – Horizons," for more.) Establishing that new musical-culinary convergence in Austin is a worthwhile goal we certainly support. But for going on nearly 30 years, locals have known that Austin's music and food scenes converge at Threadgill's, the Austin-themed restaurants that are the brainchild of entrepreneur/raconteur/historian Eddie Wilson...."

News Story  January 26, 2001, by Mike Clark-Madison

Killing the AMN Softly
News Story  August 1, 1997, by Michael Bertin
"...The origins of the AMN Team Report can be traced back to Threadgill's, of all places. In connection with the Kenneth Threadgill Music Fund, a program to provide music lessons to under-privileged children, Woody Roberts, who administers the fund, had been trying to get an INet drop at Threadgill's so that the AMN could air music live from the restaurant and raise awareness among the public about the fund (and, not coincidentally, promote the restaurant)...."
