— Austin chefs shared their dining recommendations for out-of-towners visiting for ACL. Among the usual suspects was one under-the-radar suggestion: Sichuan River, by Justine’s Casey Wilcox.

— Why, yes, The Simpsons is having a barbecue episode this Sunday, October 4, as pointed out by Daniel Vaughn. Any guesses on who Scotty Boom, the "super-chef from the Chew Network," is?

— Sorry, UT students: Taco Bell left campus.

— Actor Kumail Nanjiani has something to say about brunching in Austin:

— A woman was charged with felony assault because she waved a knife around and said she would stab brother for eating her barbecue ribs.

— East Cesar Chavez neighbors are asking the city to hold off any future commercial approvals, including restaurants and bars, along the stretch of road.

KUT spoke to Iliana de la Vega of El Naranjo and Janina O’Leary from LaV about being female in the restaurant industry.

— Keenan Goldis is still keeping himself busy, this time with sausage doughnuts.
