Every day I feel like I run into someone who is here in Austin for a bachelorette party or conference or one our of 82,459 festivals we host a year. So that means lots and lots of friends who need plenty of restaurants to chow down together at. Finding the perfect group dinner spot can be, um, how do I say this politely, very tricky. You’ve got to find the right mix of something everyone will eat with the right price and of course drinks. So here is my handy list of great restaurants in Austin for group dinners!

So needless to say, while sometimes it can be hard to keep up, I wouldn’t trade it for the past!

Weekend Roundup!

Jacoby's BrunchHello 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!
