If you are looking for a decent place to eat, with fantastic views of the lake at sunset and live music on a sprawling deck, you’ll likely find Uncle Billy’s Lake Travis. If barbeque is your thing, you’ll feel right at home. If you like craft brew, you’ll think you’ve found Nirvana. This place has serious beer.

The 2009 Big House Unchained Naked Chardonnay never sees oak or malolactic fermentation, letting just the beauty of the grape shine through.

Texas welcomes a new craft brewery to the neighborhood today with the opening party for Jester King Brewery. And a party it was. Traffic was backed-up more than 2.5 miles to get in. The 2,000 pint glasses ordered for the party ran out in the first hour and half. What do you expect? Texans love a party, and Texans love beer.

Crú Wine Bar was started in Dallas and now has 8 locations in Austin, Dallas, Denver and Houston. Pros: They offer more than 300 wines by the bottle, 40 wines by the glass and a selection of three-glass flights. Cru has a decent menu of cheeses and other nibbles to pair with the wine. It’s got a comfy feel with fat chairs and couches and a nice patio. The staff is adequately knowledgeable. So what’s not to like? Its f^$&ing expensive. While it was lovely, I couldn’t get passed the feeling that I was paying way too much. Have you ever been in the midst of doing something you love, but you weren’t fully enjoying it because there was something a little bit off that detracted from the experience? Like you are in the throes of passion, but it’s with your ninth grade science teacher. Yeah, it’s sort of like that. That and they offered a flight of Pinot Noir that didn’t include anything from Oregon. Heresy. That’s like Christmas without the baby Jesus.

At 8:00 on Thursday evening, August 5, approximately 1,000 people will get together in the gathering dusk to run 3.2 miles along Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin. With the sticky air searing their lungs and scorching asphalt blistering their feet, they’ll line up for this 5k dash with one goal in mind: an ice cold margarita greeting them at the finish line.
