— Downtown hotel the Westin is suing neighboring music venue Nook Amphitheater over noise complaints. The hotel said it did everything it could to block the music from the Nook during construction, while the owners of the Nook say they monitor the club's noise levels often to make sure they’re at the legal limit. The hotel is asking for over $1 million.

— Knishes from This Knish are now available at Wholy Bagel.

— Food Network’s next show, Texas Cake House, centers of Austin’s realistic cake designers (think bleeding hearts, Texas-shaped steaks, and busts) Natalie and Dave Sideserf of Sideserf Cake Studio.

It airs on Monday, January 9 at 8 p.m.
