— Alamo Drafthouse is in the middle of renovating its Village location, which means the West Anderson Lane theater is temporarily closed until the weekend, when it will reopen with new seats and layout.

— Because of this morning's storm, Houndstooth Coffee and Tacodeli are both closed on North Lamar due to power outage. Update, April 28: Houndstooth and Tacodeli are both reopened.

— San Antonio chef Johnny Hernandez was invited to cook at the White House next month for Cinco de Mayo.

— Musician Talib Kweli popped into Wu Chow for dinner last night.

— UT's Reporting Texas caught up with Jam Santichat and how she got rid of tipping at Thai Fresh. She made sure her employees' wages appropriately reflected that change by offering salaries and health insurance.
