Moon-Shaped Panties & the Saint of White Trash
The Late Lucinda Williams
Music Story  October 23, 1998, by Margaret Moser
"...Besides getting the usual business considerations out of the way, there are tapes to review and critique, mail to read. Running errands all day isn't all that exciting, especially when you're trapped in stand-still traffic on Briley Parkway near Opryland for almost two hours, and since work habits are hard to keep up when one is not at home much, the safe harbor of any road-weary musician becomes restaurants and bars, where the food is consistent and the $60 bottles of wine written about in Newsweek flow freely. It's Just a Record, Lu..."

On the Edge of the Edge
John Cassavetes
Screens Story  January 23, 1998, by Michael Ventura
"...It was all those things, and it was something more: It was humble. For all his arrogance, his pride, his rages, John Cassavetes was a sweet and humble man, a man who would spend hours - and on a shooting day! - listening to the opinions and stories of grips, script girls, bit players, and the people who dished out the food, because human beings interested John..."

Delicious and Nurturing Indian Fare at a South Austin Strip Mall
Asiana Indian Cuisine has something for every palate
Food Story  January 3, 2019, by Emily Beyda
"...There are a few quirks here – dishes that, while less familiar within the classic Americanized South Indian repertoire, embody the same spirit: indulgently layered, slow-cooked, and sweet, redolent of spices and cream. There's the perennially popular cauliflower 65 (also available in a chicken iteration) – a sort of South Indian take on kung pao cauliflower, breaded and fried and served in a spicy sauce – or the Indian spring rolls, apparently modeled on a Kolkata street food classic..."

Crisis Pregnancy Centers: Money for Nothing
Despite unprecedented taxpayer investment, state-funded CPCs deliver few services
News Story  July 19, 2018, by Mary Tuma
"...Meanwhile, funding toward the A2A program has shown a heavy investment in anti-choice persuasion rather than tangible services, let alone legitimate health care. While proponents of the program enjoy touting its ostensibly myriad services for women – baby and maternity clothes, childbirth and parenting classes, food pantries – to justify its existence, the overwhelming bulk of services provided by state-funded CPCs fall under "counsel time," as records obtained by the Chronicle under a public information request from the Health and Human Ser­vices Commission show..."

Future Imperfect: Our Favorite Dystopian Films
VOTE: Deadly roller derby, sad clones, and a Road Warrior duke it out
DAILY Screens  September 28, 2017, by Kimberley Jones
"...Dystopian films wax and wane in popularity, but they’ve been with us since the beginning; as early as 1927, Fritz Lang’s silent Metropolis spoke to audience’s uneasiness about wealth inequity and the rise of robotics. Name any real-life horror – war, refugee bans, contaminated food and water supplies, forced sterilization – and it’s surely inspired a piece of dystopian art...."

Dancing Circles
Dai Due's sure footing
Food Story  December 18, 2014, by Brandon Watson
"...Squarish biscuits sit on top, perhaps not dumplings per se, but just dense enough for sopping. The Dai Due Breakfast ($9), with its health food trio of brown rice, kale, and kimchi, was the only dish that might be out of place at a diner, but even that had a fried egg..."

Olamaie's Southern is everything but down-home
Food Story  December 4, 2014, by Melanie Haupt
"...The third in a troika of Southern-centric restaurants to open this fall, Olamaie was perhaps the most highly anticipated thanks to a series of splashy pop-ups and a long-delayed opening. Tucked into a refurbished cottage that once housed the beloved Mars and Sagra restaurants, Olamaie, the brainchild of chefs Michael Fojtasek and Grae Nonas, specializes in modern Southern food inspired by a namesake grandmother and local ingredients...."

Dinner Lab: You Never Know Where It’s Gonna Be, But It’s Gonna Be Real Damn Good
The stealthy supper club gives locals a taste of 'guerrilla cuisine'
DAILY Food  March 26, 2014, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Yeah, see? Imagine those gastronomic selections done up right and and doled out via excellent service and you’ll understand why the couple dozen guests were oohing and ahhing and grinning amid the dinnertime conversation. I’d made it a point, before the event began and the food was served and Entertainment Tonight’s Rocsi Diaz – who is also the, ah, brand ambassador for the night’s Aquaçai sponsor – greeted the seated crowd with a 100-watt smile … I’d made it a point, I say, to interview the two reigning chefs there in the culinarily invaded KRAVE nightclub at 302 East Sixth..."

Kolaches Are a Big Hit in Brooklyn
Homesick Texans visit bakery for a taste of home
DAILY Food  September 3, 2013, by Phillip Pantuso
"...[image-1] A lifelong Texan who finds himself living in New York City can, if he wants, find adequate replacements for the comfort foods of home – or so I've found in the year since I moved here from Austin for graduate school. The Big Apple seemed to notice Texan cuisine a few years ago, prompting Hill Country-inspired dry-rub BBQ joints, a couple of not-bad Tex-Mex restaurants, and a breakfast taco “craze” which itself spawned not one, but two trend pieces in the New York Times..."

Paggi House
The new Paggi House's model is 'Nothing you expect, everything you want.' Um ...
Food Review  October 21, 2005, by Claudia Alarcón
"...The lunch fare features simple fare that resembles what you may find at Austin Java, such as fresh salads, sandwiches, soups, and pasta dishes, and it even retains the former Paggi classic, the Jackson Salad. But the food attractions here are the "small plates" created by Thomas and available in the evening..."

"...Look, I'm not saying that people that live in South Austin are pretentious, I'm not saying that people that live in North Austin are not, all I'm saying is that the separation of people by race, religion, sex, creed, class (sound familiar?), and, maybe the simplest to forget, geographical location, is what keeps us from organizing anything more than a small food drive or a salamander protection agency whose members can't remember where there car keys are half the time...."

Cleopatra Nights at the Hot Jumbo Bagel Company

Food Review  September 13, 2002, by Rachel Feit
"...Tired of Mexican food at two in the morning? Looking for someplace else to grab a cheap snack, perhaps something a bit more exotic than the same old taco and cheese? Well look no more: Austin now has its very own Russian and Mediterranean tea room on Friday and Saturday nights. Set within an unlikely location at the Hot Jumbo Bagel storefront, the Cleopatra Nights is one more example of the curious, hybrid eateries to hit the Austin dining scene...."

Grow and Prosper
With neighbors still reeling from 1990 expansion, Hyde Park Baptist plans another growth project.
News Story  November 19, 1999, by Erica C. Barnett
"...For a church whose congregation has proven its ability to give generously in the past (according to IRS records, the church's income from contributions and other sources in 1997, the most recent year for which information was available, was $557,632), Hyde Park is notoriously stingy with spreading its wealth outside its approximately five-block compound. The food pantry at the church is open just three days a week, and its at-home food service (the functional equivalent of Meals on Wheels) serves fewer than 40 families in the Austin area...."

Film Reviews
News Story  October 13, 1995
"...But when rival chef Xin Xin-xiong (better known as "Club Foot," yet another Once Upon a Time in China regular) challenges Qing Han to a test of cookery skills that culminates in a re-staging of the legendary "Qing and Han Imperial Feast," Cheung and Yuen must track a masterful chef-turned-scummy-recluse (Kenny Bee) in mainland China in order to win the contest. "Kung Food" might be a silly, if somewhat accurate, description of The Chinese Feast since all the challenges, duels, and training sequences on display here occasionally parallel those in Hark's martial arts films..."

Review: The Beer Plant
Uneven execution blights vegan gastropub
Food Story  January 12, 2017, by Brandon Watson
"...Undoubtedly the most surefire way to drum up a few negative comments on a Chronicle Food section article is to assign any sort of relative value – positive or negative – to a plant-based restaurant. There are plenty of reasons given for that disapproval, from a list's omission of certain eateries to disagreements on what constitutes vegetarian eating, but I suspect one root of the sensitivity has something to do with the constant barrage of snide remarks and bacon jokes aimed at herbivores, which surely inspire few yucks for those eating with a moral imperative..."
