Another big week reporting on the state of food in Austin, Texas.

We had such a good time at our barbecue pop up restaurant at Three Little Pigs, that we started our week off slow {too many beers were drunk while hovering over the pit} but finally regained our voice mid-week, right when some crazy shit started going down. We wrote 2 obituaries and checked in on a night of power violence down on 6th street and were happy to report the rebirth of a University of Texas campus barbecue legend.

Thanks for checking out the site y’all. And we appreciate the huge attendance we had at our first culinary outing last week. It meant a lot to see everybody out there breaking bread, listening to LeVon Helm and relaxing on a perfect summer afternoon.
