Who would have thought that behind the Hole In The Wall in the West Campus would be a cool little restaurant filled with mouth watering Asian food with a big twist. This weekend I had lunch at East Side King. This joint definitely reinforces the theme of "Keep Austin Weird".  It has graffiti murals all over the outside walls and when you walk in the lighting is dim and it has a bar like feel to it. There is also an outside seating area with picnic tables that roll out right on to Guadalupe. The famous Chef Paul Qui and his partner created all the appetizing dishes on the menu. I had one of their Ramen bowls (I mean I am a college kid so Ramen is right up my ally). The chicken tortilla Ramen was an amazing explosion of Japanese, Thai, and TexMex all in…

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I know many of you guys are stressing out about finding the right gift and trying to plan the best night for your sweetheart. Well not to worry because Austin is filled with amazing restaurants and romantic spots for you to surprise your honey. A big concern for many of you college guys is money and the cost of a special night out. That's fine because most girls, the keepers anyway, care more about being with you, not how much their meal is going to cost. It's more about how you do it, not what you do or where you go.  First, I recommend buying flowers. Some girls might say they don't care much for flowers but deep down every girl will think its so sweet when you show up with a few roses in your hand. Second,…

  Facebook goes purple for Cancer Awareness Day. If anyone was on Facebook yesterday I am sure they noticed at least one of their Facebook friends with a purple profile picture. One by one every UT sorority girl as well as many of the other UT student's profile pictures were turning bright purple. No, this was not just a new cute and fun social networking trend. The purple profile pictures were posted for a good cause. Chevrolet promised to donate $1 to the American Cancer Society for every purple profile picture in support of World Cancer Day.

My Facebook profile picture was purple and I hope yours was too!

Boys, Beers, and Buffalo wings. Yep folks that is the glorious smell of Super bowl Sunday. I would love to tell you that I actually knew what teams were playing yesterday but is that even the point of this great day? Its an excuse for boys to be boys (and some girls to act like boys too). Its an excuse to throw a party and hang out with friends. Its an excuse to stuff your face with junk food and sit on the couch all day. Calling Pluckers yesterday to order some wings was impossible. People were on hold for as long as 30 minutes. The UT boys that I spent the day with had ordered their 150 wings a week in advance. Obviously they knew how to do the Super Bowl right. Maybe some of you went out to sports bars to eat and catch the game but I believe most…
