Isn’t it nice to have Austin all to ourselves again? After a particularly brutal SXSW 2012 we spent the last week in heavy recovery mode. Too many consecutive nights in the bar room waiting for a can of Pearl behind a line filled with hair dressers from Baton Rouge can do that to a body. Without further ado; the hottest posts from the week, condensed into one easy list.
1] Yassine Enterprises has been all over the media these past few months. First they got slapped with a lawsuit by a bunch of bartenders who claimed they weren’t being paid the federally mandated $2.13 per hour and now the FBI has kicked in the door and slapped the cuffs on a bunch of the people who run the company. Unsurprising that this was the hottest story of the week http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/3/22/Shit-Hits-The-Fan-Austin-Texas-Yassine-Enterprises-Raided-By-The-FBI?adminview=true
2] We bid a fond farewell to Austin’s SXSW 2012 endeavor with a photo http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/3/21/Austin-Daily-Photo-Farewell-SXSW-2012?adminview=true
3] RL Reeves Jr misses the basset hound that reigned over Gourmand’s Neighborhood Pub during their renovation http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/3/23/Field-Report-Gourmands-Neighborhood-Pub?adminview=true
4] While we have deep love for Texas barbecue sometimes we look to our Eastern neighbors for sustenance http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/3/22/Austin-Daily-Photo-Johnsons-Boucaniere-Practices-The-Art-Of-Smoking-Meats-In-Lafayette-Louisiana?adminview=true
5] Tuesday Morning is not just for little old ladies. It’s also a great place to score Le Creuset and other killer kitchen ware http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/3/25/Austin-Daily-Photo-Tuesday-Morning?adminview=true
