When you want to be Willie’s neighbor …
How does 632 acres sound? Yes, please!
When you want brisket on your pizza …
Toss Pizzeria and Pub recently opened a second location at 11905 Bee Cave Road, just before the Hill Country Galleria. The menu features a specialty pie with Terry Black’s brisket, over a dozen flavors of wings, salads, and brunch options. Pizzas are available on vegan, gluten-free, and cauliflower crusts.
When you like mathematical word problems …
According to the National Weather Service, Austin used to average about 14 days of 100-degree temps. In the past 20 years, we average closer to 32 days. Last summer, it was 52 days in the triple digits. As of this week, we hit our 8th day in the triples. If Sally has three apples and Roger has 15 pears, how many more days until Austin bursts into flames?
When you’re okay being a 90%er …
Despite the hot days, Lake Travis and Lake Buchanan are still a whopping 95% full. Lake Travis is at 679.04, Lake Buchanan is 1017.63, and Lake LBJ is at 824.71. Not too shabby.
When you like pets more than humans …
You’re not alone. Peopling is hard.
