Over on Austin’s Eater website they’re announcing that one Matthew Odam has been hired as the daily paper’s new food critic.

They go on to mention that he’s previously been with Austinist.

It had been eons since we last looked at that website but a quick perusal reminded us why.

Mid afternoon on Monday their entertainment listings are a solid week out of date.

While we regularly fantasize about having a time machine, our ability to go back to Monday July 18th and hit the town is sorely limited.

Then we searched for a food category on their site.

No luck.

But once we typed food into the search bar we found a dozen or so articles posted so far in July.

Then we remembered why we quit reading Austinist.

Welcome to the lovely scrum that is the Austin food scene Mr. Odam.
