Another staple Austin store is closing its doors for good due to financial troubles. Toy Joy was the place to go for unique gifts. You would easily find things just as weird as Austin in that store. You should head over and say ‘bye,’ and browse the endless walls of toys one last time! Phone:

We’re just going to come out and say it: The greatest thing about SXSW for Austin locals is all the free stuff you can see, drink, eat, and enjoy. You can hate on traffic. You can hate on tourists. You can hate on hipsters all you want. But what you can’t deny is that we’ve

‘Tis officially the calm before the SX storm. While wise advice would be to take it easy tonight, and rest up for all that’s in store… that wouldn’t make for a very exciting blog post. What the heck, life is short, let’s start the weeklong party now. Independence Brewing is going to be on Rainey

I’m sure everyone has certain moments or days in their lives that they wish they could relive over and over again. Last Thursday was one of those days for me. In a crazy twist of fate, I was given a Lamborghini to use for 24 hours; time nor a car has ever gone so fast.

For those of us that have done the SX thing before, we’ve learned a few things over the years. One of those things is to avoid driving downtown at all costs. If you think everyday Austin traffic is bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Even if you’re lucky enough to find a spot, parking prices

Nothing beats a good bowl of soup on a rainy, cold Monday night. I’ve been hearing great things about Julie’s Noodles for a while now, and I have to say they’re worth the hype. I tried both the pork soup and the beef. There’s not a whole lot of flair in the Styrofoam bowl- a

I’m obviously a huge fan of social media, and I love a local business that recognizes the benefits of using it correctly! Sadly, while many national chains seem to be proactively making social media a part of their marketing efforts, many small businesses STILL haven’t gotten on board.
