South Austinites: The wait is finally over! Favor has just announced the expansion of several markets in Texas, including Austin, which will see its coverage area double in size starting today. The on-demand delivery app that connects customers with their own personal “runner” will now serve larger areas of both North and South Austin (North to Cedar Park and South to Slaughter). Here’s the new Austin zone:
In addition to the Austin expansion, the company will now deliver to Addison, which completes the Dallas metroplex, and five more communities in the Fort Worth Area. Lastly, Favor is also launching in The Woodlands!
So Favor yourself some queso today; it’s Tuesday and you deserve it! Or hey, how about some nuggets? In honor of all of this launching and expanding, Favor is offering Chick-fil-A deliveries for a flat $1 delivery fee from now through Saturday.

For me, it doesn’t get much better than this: Larry McGuire’s new restaurant June’s is opening on South Congress. Named after master sommelier June Rodil, the primary focus of this place is wine. They will be serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
June’s took over Wahoo’s on South Lamar and their patio will be dog friendly.
That’s all the news I have for now. But I’ll be by today to learn more. McGuire really knows his restaurants, so I’ve been highly anticipating this spot!
Hours: Sunday – Thursday 8 a.m. – midnight
Friday & Saturday: 8 a.m. – midnight

The name says it all! This little gem just opened earlier this summer and has quickly become a favorite. It’s officially a “gourmet grocery store” where you can pick up necessities, but the real joy of this place is grabbing a bottle of wine from the store and having it opened at the bar while you enjoy their stellar food menu. Their hot sandwiches are legit.
They have happy hour everyday from 3–6 p.m.

Welcome to the world, Irene’s! We like you already.
When: Today, June 2nd

There is a new Taco Joint south of the river and it almost has me looking forward to my next hangover. Yesterday we tested it out and left happy, full, and excited to come back.
You can order any taco combination under the sun, but the homemade tortillas are what will really keep you coming back.
The place is simple and fast and they offer both indoor and outdoor seating. I see a bright future for this Taco Joint. Sadly, they do not have a drive-thru—but that’s probably for the best because I would eat nothing else.
Hours: Monday-Friday 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

If you thought the Domain, North Austin’s city-within-a-city couldn’t get any bigger, the highly anticipated entertainment district known as Rock Rose has started to open—bit by bit. With a plethora of restaurants, bars, boutiques, and more already open or set to open in the near future, here are some of the highlights.
Lavaca Street Bar is the northern version of the popular downtown sports bar, only 2,000 square-feet larger. Featuring skee ball, pool, and 40 screens plus a video wall, this is the perfect spot to catch a Rangers or Spurs game while you enjoy a sandwich from Turf n’ Surf Po Boy.
Need a new pair of tan leather boots? A bar of beard soap? Just a cup of coffee or a glass of whiskey neat? Weathered Coalition is part mountain lodge bar and part men’s boutique, featuring rugged yet elegant menswear and accouterments.
The third Austin location of Corepower Yoga is now open. The nationwide chain of studios has a stated mission of “intensity for the body, presence for the mind,” combining the intensity of core workouts with the mindfulness of yoga.
Featuring classic Irish, Scottish, and Welsh food and drink, Jack & Ginger’s is already a prime spot for both lunch and dinner. With more than 50 taps plus a selection of whiskies from across the pond, you can’t go wrong at this locally owned pub.
More than a run-of-the-mill café, Two Hands Coffee prides itself on serving customers only the best, hand-selected coffee beans, the most freshly squeezed juices, and the tastiest craft ales and lagers.
Now taking reservations for June, Viva Day Spa is opening its third location at Rock Rose for spa packages, facials, hair removal, nail care, and services for men, too.
Named one of the “50 Best New Restaurants in America” in Bon Appetit magazine, South Austin’s Sway will soon bring its delicious brand of modern Thai made for sharing to the northern reaches of town at Rose Rose.
Get your thin crust on at Salvation Pizza, a dog-friendly, beer-garden-style parlor on 34th Street set to open its second location at Rock Rose soon.
Rainey Street is a formerly residential neighborhood that has transformed over the last decade into a hotspot for happy hours, late-night drinks, brunch, and dinner. In fact, you can spend an entire Sunday on Rainey Street and only hit a few of the many great spots in the area.
There are several ways to map out a good Sunday Funday on Rainey, but it’s always a safe bet to start at Banger’s for brunch. Wash down biscuits and gravy with one of dozens of local craft brews, from Austin favorites like Austin Beerworks, Live Oak, and Hops & Grain. The bar is also famous for its homemade sausages, best enjoyed at one the outdoor picnic tables.

Step it up at Blackheart, Rainey’s top cocktail bar, for a few (or more) sips from its massive whiskey list. You’ll find rarities like Black Maple Hill and the entire suite of Pappy Van Winkle bourbons and rye, each of which is better than the next. Kick back inside, where the bar’s interior will make you feel right at home—at your quirky aunt’s upstate cabin.
Next, head over to Craft Pride for some late-afternoon live music. The bar, opened in 2010, is unique in that every beer on its massive tap-wall is both a craft brew and made in Texas. Sip a few pints of Big Bend Hefeweizen and sway in the breeze to the tunes outside. Before you leave, grab a couple of craft beers to-go from the Bottle Shoppe.

Now you’ll need some more food to chase that bourbon and beer, so why not head to G’Raj Mahal? One of Rainey’s first spots, G’Raj Mahal opened in 2009 as an Indian food trailer in—what else—a garage, transforming into a brick-and-mortar eatery a little more than four years later. Now serving beer and wine, the spot is a laid-back, delicious restaurant and lounge, where you can end your Sunday with samosas, chicken tikka masala, and a glass of malbec before it’s back to the grind in the morning.

Today is Arro’s last day of business. Sad, I know. I was looking forward to many of wine nights on their newly renovated patio.
They have a ton of wine that they need to see go. Today all drinks are half off and they have special food offerings from $5-$15. It’s a stretch but half off Arro wine could be the silver lining in this situation.
