North campus mainstay Spider House is hosting a Lex Land dinner cabaret with foods from Antonelli's Cheese Shop. We were ignorant of Lex Land but a quick jaunt down the Tumblr rabbit hole proved that this gal has some serious pipes.
Apparently there's a TV show called The Voice where she acquitted herself admirably prior to being ousted.
If a night of wine, cheese and sultry vocals is your bag, gas up the Fiero, coax your ol lady into that dusty Dior gown she never gets to wear and act like it's Saturday night in a proper city. Prices range from $30 to $150.
With the cabaret life of the Weimar Republic nearly a century in the rear view mirror perhaps Austin is on the threshold of a re-imagining of this genre?

Another monster week. We keep wondering when this site will plateau but for right now we're breaking traffic records weekly. We just crested 1000 subscribers which would be reason for closure at Huffington Post but around French Place, Texas it's cause to celebrate. Thanks for checking out the site y'all. While it's certainly true that we're only in it for the money y'all don't seem to mind.
In keeping with the modern state of foodways in East Austin, the renaissance of long running curb store Quickie Pickie will feature local foods in the cafe, local beers on the tap wall and perhaps an aviary off to one side featuring only the finest local chickens?
A month or so ago we were motoring toward Rosewood Avenue when we spotted a gang of construction workers descending on the corner of East 11th and Lydia. Always curious, we popped into the old time quick mart to see what was going on with the hubbub.
Nothing but admiration for Jack Gilmore. Read about how a white man from Brownsville won an entry in our Best Tex Mex Mex restaurant in Austin Texas series http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/index.cfm/2011/7/29
Sous vide Tex Mex? An idea whose time has come.
Madeline Rackley stands charged with intoxication manslaughter in the death of Jarrett Ryan Whittington. Last Summer, two Austin police officers were in the Rainey Street area and witnessed Rackley drive her Honda Civic into Lady Bird Lake in the early morning hours of Sunday July 1st 2012.
Rackley, who reportedly had been drinking at Lustre Pearl, managed to escape the vehicle as it sank into the lake, but Whittington, the backseat passenger drowned.
Update: round 2 is underway and the Don Juan is on the business end of a good old fashioned dry gulching! Vote now,vote often.
Austin Texas' Juan In A Million's Don Juan breakfast taco emerged victorious in a Cooking Channel battle with Norman Oklahoma's The Mont and their queso. The East side taqueria garnered 54.36% (1,714 votes) vs 45.64% (1,439 votes) for the Oklahoma outfit.
The road's looking rocky for Juan Meza's overrated taco however as the next combatant is Top Dog Frankfurter of UC Berkeley. It's been a solid coon's age since we last ate in Berkeley CA and we didn't trouble ourselves with hot dogs opting instead for a curbside plate of ribs at Flint's Barbecue and a long night at the Starry Plough.
An eye opening experience to put it mildly. Vote for Austin, the University of Texas and state pride-right this way http://blog.cookingchanneltv.com/2013/03/22/cooking-cha

Tough week. SXSW must've really wrung all the sap out of y'all as it took an inordinate amount of research to come up with a solid 5 entries in our weekly "best of" from the Austin food blog scene.
Forks Up blog ate at Josephine House http://forksupblog.com/3/post/2013/03/josephine-house.h those room temperature salads gave us pause but to each his own
Gothamist LLC is hiring an editor for the Austin outlet of their national "ist" blogging network. Should you be hired, you'll be sequestered to company headquarters, reportedly atop the Four Season's condo tower on Cesar Chavez, where monkey waiters will bring you $100 margaritas from 9am-6pm Monday through Friday.
The booze is contingent upon your ability to produce 6-9 posts per day...every day. That's a lot of blogging folks. Feel up to the task?
Good luck and tell 'em Scrumptious Chef sent ya.
