Brrrr, this weather has me wanting to stay in, sit by a fire and cuddle! However, too much time at home may lead to cabin fever so a little Master Pancake at the Drafthouse seems like just what the doctor ordered. Join them as they mock all of your favorite holiday movies, including The Grinch,
I’m excited to announce that we’re launching our Second Annual 12 Days of Austin Christmas Giveaway. For 12 days this month we’ll be giving away a prize a day! All of these prizes are great examples of some of the awesome things our city has to offer! Today’s prize is an opportunity to see the
The only thing better than one Santa is an entire room full of them. All the more laps to sit on for Christmas wishes or to confess that you’ve been naughty this year. Grab your Santa costume (available for around $15 at most Walgreen’s) and head out for a night of pub-crawling and cocktails. Bring

The Driskill will be bright with holiday lights starting tonight at their annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. There will be choral performances, sweet bites and cider to help get you in the
This place’s name is deceiving; I made the mistake of assuming that they literally served different types of salsas and kimchis. In reality, they chose to use these two food’s names in their title to showcase their fusion of Mexican and Korean cuisine. I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki Meal and the Drizzled Potstickers. The
Last year I decided to deliver presents for Operation Blue Santa. The experience was extremely rewarding and I’m already excited about being involved this year. They’re an organization that delivers presents to underprivileged families along with a meal. The excitement on the children’s faces when we were delivering last year was priceless. There are
Tonight is the night, the famous Zilker Tree will be lit for the first time of the season.. I am so excited about the Tree Lighting this year as it is also a reminder that the Trail of Lights will be back this year as well. The Trail Of Lights will run December 8th – 22nd.

Black Friday survivors, come one, come all. It’s officially the Christmas season, so come out, bring a toy and enjoy the fun of a holiday parade! Who doesn’t love a good parade? We may not be in New York City watching the Macy’s Day Parade, but this is still a morning filled with marching bands,
They need to have a ‘turkey trot’ on the day after Thanksgiving so I can trot of last night’s dinner. For everyone out there that is not going Black Friday shopping but is still looking to get out of the house for some activity, disc golf is a great option. It is the perfect amount
Just sitting here thinking how thankful I am to call Austin home. Here are some of the reasons why I, personally have fallen in love with Austin. They may not all be Austin born but they certainly define this city. 1. We’re charitable. 2. Over 300 Days of Sunshine a year. 3. The Longhorns. 4.
Happy Thanksgiving Austinites! I sincerely hope you are spending the day with loved ones whether it be your family or friends. For those of you that don’t have a place to be or have enough ‘family time’ the Buzz Mill is ready to be your Thanksgiving haven. First off, I love this place. Great drinks

Yesterday, for example, I went to Whole Foods to get a cup of chicken noodle soup and somehow walked out with $30 worth of holiday cookies as well.
