— Jo’s Coffee Shop might be expanding soon, according to hotelier Liz Lambert, who sold off the majority shares of her company Bunkhouse to the Standard Hotel group (she still has 48 percent). The new deal will give her "more freedom to expand the Bunkhouse line," wrote The Austin Business Journal, including a new hotel on South Congress and presumably more locations of the coffee shop.

— Eric Asimov, food critic for The New York Times, declared the wine-like gose as the official beer of the summer after trying Real Ale’s version at Dai Due. He wrote,

This time, I couldn’t help but notice the wave of refreshing pleasure as I drank the lively, citrusy, spicy, sour, saline brew. My first thought was: What a great summer beer. My second was: What a fascinating array of flavors. Third and most important: I want another.
