Earlier this year, I popped over to Foreign & Domestic to shoot some behind the scenes photos for them of prep work in the kitchen. They have an open kitchen anyways, so it was fun to hang around by the counter and watch the chefs work their magic. I love that time in a restaurant before there are any diners in, and there is the hustle of getting everything done before opening time. It also reminds me of how much time and care goes into each dish. Those babies aren’t thrown together, it takes a lot of melding of flavors, and getting everything just right.
Here are a few photos, you can see more on their website!
A while back, a great restaurant closed. SPIN Modern Thai.
As I continue to mourn the loss of this yummy restaurant, I share with you some photos I took for Citygram that sadly never got to be published due to the closing of the restaurant.
This past weekend I attended Austin City Limits Festival. Thankfully, we went weekend 1, cause today (during weekend 2) the festival got rained out, so everyone attending weekend two unfortunately missed out on the fantastic bands that played on Sunday.
Apart from almost passing out twice from dehydration and having to visit the medical tent, this year was a success! I ate delicious food and hit up some favorites (Noble Sandwich Co, Frank and Peached Tortilla), and got to see a bunch of great bands including The National, Junip, Atoms for Peace, The Joy Formidable, Franz Ferdinand, Local Natives…. etc.. etc…
Here are some of the photos I took with my iphone during the 3 days of the festival last weekend…
Here’s a few iphone photos from this week:
I ate at Kerbey Lane, Phil’s Icehouse, had a drink at the Tigress, ate a churro from Costco, and made pasta with freshly-picked tomatoes and basil. A delicious week!
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending and being a part of my friends Chris and Kathy’s wedding. I met Chris at the beginning of 2006, right after I moved to Austin when I didn’t know anyone here except for my sister. I worked with him for a couple of years, and he was my first good friend in Austin, inviting me to lunch and to hang out with his friends. Through him, I met Kathy and became great friends with her as well. We have all spent many nights out dancing, evenings gathered in my old apartment to watch crazy MTV shows, headed out on bbq adventures, and out exploring great cocktails and of course drinking Lone Star.
Here are a few photos I snapped on my iphone throughout the day yesterday. Congrats to the two of them on a phantastic wedding and the beginning of a wonderful marriage!
Last week, my friend Chris officially launched his newest project – Citygram. When he first approached me about being a part of the magazine and taking photos for it, I was excited. And then I was completely blown away once he showed me the sample he had put together. It’s one of the first truly interactive, made for tablet magazines out there that I’ve seen. And it’s amazing. The technology is one thing, but the content is even better. He’s gathered some really fantastic contributors, from Tolly Moseley to Jess Simpson. And this first issue even has a column from Joy the Baker!
