Belated Austin Restaurant and Bar Openings Plus an Olive Dessert Just Cuz

Posted by on Sep 17, 2013

Please pardon my tardiness in updating.   I’ve been swamped.  With what?  *breathe in*

In 1 breath, I just came back from vacation and am busily catching up with Vancouver Food Tour operations while freelance writing for Serious Eats et al. with a project for Google on my hands and had to write 2 certification exams before starting my school year of teaching again while preparing for grad school to begin.

*breathe out*  At least we don’t have kids.  I admire parents that somehow juggle it all.

All in all, life is good.  It’s only September (the beginning of the school year and simultaneously the tail end of VFT’s busy season) but I’m already pooped.  I’ve been mentally preparing myself for this and am learning what it means to take 1 day at a time.  I’ve realized that routine does my mind and body good.  A tough workout in the morning and a good meal (sometimes with a stiff drink) at night keep me grounded and feeling… better than normal.

Enough with me-me-me babble.  Below are a few semi-recent but nevertheless, very exciting restaurant and bar openings around Austin that I’ve reported on for Serious Eats.  (Oh, and a wicked dessert to boot).  They’re not fresh out of the oven but are definitely worth checking out.
