Liberty Kitchen Austin, TX *Closed*

Liberty Kitchen in Austin is now closed.

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!

Happy Hour at TRACE The W Hotel Austin

Spicy Cucumber Cocktail at TRACE The W Hotel Austin by Natalie Paramore

Happy Thursday! And you know what that means, happy hour! Heck yeah, it’s almost the weekend and definitely time to start thinking (if you haven’t already) about libations. One of my recent happy hour discoveries was at TRACE at The W Hotel in Austin. First off, I am huge fan of the Living Room. Great place to chill out, perfect party vibe and also a great place to clean out your wallet. BUT their neighbors next door at TRACE have a little different story, as in happy hour everyday. EVERYDAY. Happy hour on a Saturday afternoon? Why wouldn’t you? Exactly. They have crafted cocktails like this Jalapeno and Cucumber Lemonade, which was one of my favorites of the evening. The lovely people at TRACE invited the Austin Food Bloggers Alliance members in to try some of the specials during our monthly happy hour gatherings.
