Power. Adrenaline. Exhilaration. There’s no precise way to describe what it feels like to slip behind the wheel of a Lamborghini or Ferrari and take it for a spin on a professional racetrack. Instead of trying to describe it, you need to experience it first-hand. Fittipaldi Exotic Driving at Driveway Austin lets you do just that.

Locally, the Fittipaldi supercar experience takes place at Driveway Austin. The Grand Prix Course has extreme elevation changes, signature corners and weaves its way through canopies of trees alongside the Colorado River. Even the asphalt was methodically tested, developed and specially formulated to provide the perfect grip in both wet and dry conditions. Fittipaldi in-car instructors help guests navigate the winding road course, which results in an exhilarating experience.

Today’s winner will get six laps for themselves and a friend in their choice of a Lamborghini or Ferrari.

Didn’t know Olive Oil could come from Texas?

Texas Olive Ranch has proven the experts wrong, and created olive oil with a complex flavor profile right here in the great state of Texas.

Some People Called Him Crazy, But That Didn’t Stop Him

When Jim Henry, the founder, set out to establish the Texas Olive Ranch, some people called him crazy; but through guts and gumption he proved that the Great State of Texas has unlimited potential for the olive and olive oil industry. In 2005, Jim planted 40,000 trees on his land outside Carrizo Springs and in 2009 the first crop of olives bloomed, proving the doubters wrong. By 2010, Texas Olive Ranch produced the largest crop of olives in the history of not just Texas, but the entire southern United States.

Enjoying Olive Oil In Texas Today

Fast forward to today, they’re producing  over 25,000 gallons of olive oil per year.  All grown, harvested, and pressed right here in Texas.  Their olive oil is made with a cold pressed, unfiltered process, for the purest extra virgin olive oil flavor.  Not only do they make extra virgin olive oil, they also produce flavor infused olive oils such as: basil, roasted garlic, and rattlesnake.

In the event you don’t win today’s prize, they’re currently having a holiday sale that will get you 15% off when you use the code: 365 at checkout.

Today’s winner will six bottles of Limited Reserve Olive Oil.

Pets in Austin have it made. Sunshine, sidewalks, beautiful weather, and parks galore! Now they also have the pack of pet lovers at Kriser’s Natural Pet standing by to help them live happier, healthier lives, naturally.

Founder Brad Kriser was always at his happiest sitting on the floor, surrounded by pets. Upon giving up a career in the dot-com world in 1999, he opened a grooming, daycare, boarding and retail business, seeking a day-to-day life that he could be more passionate about. In doing so, Brad also discovered the benefits of feeding his pets an all-natural diet and vowed to stock only natural products in his stores.

Fast forward 10+ years, and Brad is still happiest on the floor surrounded by pets, only now that floor is in one of his Kriser’s Natural Pet stores, including the newest one on Research Blvd (next to Sprouts).

krisers-pet-store-austin

“I love our stores, our customers and the Kriser’s Pack so much, and feel honored to get to do as a career,” says Brad, with a content grin. “Having all the pets and their people around, educating pet parents, helping organization and rescues with our support, and getting to meet so many new faces…it just makes me feel great about why we turn on the lights every day. Each store is a new opportunity to help a group of pets discover the healthy pet movement.”

Brad and his entire Kriser’s pack are 100% dedicated to the helping pets in Austin by providing a selection of 3000 items that are Kriser’s Approved. The store is a pet paradise, with an array of natural food, treats, supplies and accessories, all selected by Brad himself, and a professionally staffed grooming salon.

“The items that we call ‘Kriser’s Approved’ are all carefully selected for what they can bring to a pet’s life, whether it’s the best nutrition, toys for physical and mental engagement, or high quality accessories we are proud to carry,” said Brad. “For instance, our food products contain no corn, soy, wheat or animal by-products, and our treats are all sourced from responsible, trusted locations, never from China.”

krisers-austin

While the Kriser’s brand has extended beyond Texas, this family-run business still operates every store like it’s the only one, and Brad has staffed each location with a remarkable group of passionate pet lovers to help ensure the wellness of pets. Brad notes, “We train our Pack Members to be exceptional educators and provide outstanding customer service. We get excited about every customer that allows us to be part of their pet’s lives, and strive to exceed expectations every day. We want Kriser’s to be somewhere that pets and their humans LOVE to visit, not just an errand on their list.”
