— Partiers on Austin’s Sixth street last Friday night had the chance to spot a celebrity being handcuffed, as bad boy actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested for public intoxication. KXAN reported that the arrest happened at 7:45 p.m. in front of the Bat Bar.

— Ramen lovers up north can now slurp up a bowl of noodles on their lunch break. The always-packed Ramen Tatsu-Ya announced this morning that it will offer Monday lunch service at its north location starting today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

— Irish musician Hozier (of "Take Me To Church" fame) was in town for ACL this weekend. On a break from the fest, he learned to make pottery with Austin ceramic artist Keith Kreeger, whose work is used at many of the city’s hippest restaurants.

— KXAN profiled Chris Stockdale, owner of Mighty Dogs Café. Stockdale’s restaurant is across the street from a homeless shelter, which inspired him to begin a project to help feed Austin’s homeless population.

— Hook ‘em Horns! Texas beat Oklahoma 24-17 this weekend, which means Governor Greg Abbott won his bet with Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin. However, according to the AP, despite winning the bet, Governor Abbott will still donate barbecue to Oklahoma City’s Rescue Mission.

— Micklethwait Craft Meats is setting the creative cake bar higher every year. Last year for the barbecue trailer’s second birthday, there was brisket cake. This year, for Tom Micklethwait’s birthday, guests enjoyed a moon pie cake. For those who don’t know, a Moon Pie involves graham crackers stuffed with marshmallows, dipped in chocolate. Yeah.
