Hello and happy Friday! It’s starting off a gray day here in Austin for weekend #2 of ACL. If I’m being totally honest I love gray days! Maybe it’s because we get so much sunshine here that sometimes I like a little cloud cover haha. I like rainy days too, don’t hate on me too much mmmkay? This week has totally gotten away from me and I haven’t cooked much like I usually do but I have been a blending queen! And you want to know why? Because the amazing BMW got me a Vitamix for an early birthday present! Basically if it’s blendable then I have been blending it! Smoothies all day, errryday! Pesto? Duh. Thank goodness I have all those basil plants growing in the backyard! The addiction to the green sauce it’s getting real y’all. Might be high time to take some holiday orders or give you another recipe or two on how to make your own! What do you think?
Also, I’ve had some really fun meals this week that I wanted to share! The above? Well that would be yer Saturday brunch at Jacoby’s! I went with my friend last Saturday and had the best start to the weekend! The weather was a little crisper than this weekend but their patio is the perfect place for a mimosa or three. I brought my dog and we had a leisurely brunch that definitely has me hoping to get back there real soon. I had the ham schinitzel and we both loved the biscuits! So now that they have brunch Saturday and Sunday there twice as many chances for biscuits!
ACL is descending down upon on us people! I’ve already seen them combing the streets the past few days. Them being the festies with their hair and tattoos and booties and backpacks and man buns. Oh wait, they probably just live here, haha. Anyways, every year all the social feeds are jammed with peace signs and best of lists. Where to eat, where to eat late night, where to drink, where to brunch, best late night shows…and so they go on and on. I thought about writing you a list but then I realized there are a bunch of people who have already written you a bunch of lists to follow. So instead, I decided to give you a peek into a restaurant thats opened up since this time last year. They also get a big fat high five for serving up a large comfort food brunch on Saturday AND Sunday with lots of boozy drinks. Whether you are partaking in the festival or not, I would definitely recommend this Houston transplant restaurant for lunch or dinner too any time of the year!
In no particular order, these are my favorite brunch spots around town! From patios and mimosas to queso and burgers, these are the spots me and my local Austinite friends find ourselves returning to weekend after weekend! As exampled by my Instagram feed, these are the spots you can kick back and dive into. If you’re looking to brunch like a local this SXSW, here are my favorite spots!
