Bits and Bites

And yes, therefore I've been slacking on the blog, and not paying a whole lot of attention to Twitter lately. (There, I said it....sometimes it's just too darn hard to keep up with Twitter!) So here's what's up in ATX that I am immediately aware of.

--  Going on right now, is the Go Texan Restaurant Round up, where local foods are being cooked up and proceeds donated to area food banks. We <3 local!
-- SugarMama's Bakeshop will be hosting Australian baker Jess Pryles on Sunday, July 31st, and she'll be doing some guest baking!
-- The Gypsy Picnic Trailer Food Festival returns on October 22 to Auditorium Shores. Hopefully it's better organized than the first go around! 
-- Local mixologist extraordinaire Bill Norris will be joining the Alamo Drafthouse to head up their beverage program. Cheers!

-- Cha Thai, a recent addition to the trailer scene, on Jessie St., near South Lamar & Barton Springs. Two Thai sisters serving "modern Thai fare". Excited to go try, but not in this heat! 
-- Also, Mai Thai, a new restaurant downtown at 2nd & San Jacinto. Very nice website!
-- Eater Austin had reported in their email newsletter that the east side new home for John Mueller's BBQ had fallen through, and they would be going for a trailer on S.1st Street. I can't find any further info on that, nor where along S. 1st they're looking, so stay tuned! 

-- Iggi's Texatarian vegan foods trailer

Okay, that's what I got for now!
