— Two Hands Coffee is now called Apanas Coffee & Beer, as to not be confused with Two Hands in New York. Apanas has a location in Rock Rose, with a second cafe slated for South Congress.

— Dana Blanchard is trying to bring Austin barbecue to Los Angeles, and he's looking to hire an Austin pitmaster.

— Drive-in chain Sonic is experimenting with offering charging stations for electric cars out in Boerne, Texas, as well as Westminster, Colorado, because everyone should always be charging, especially when you’re eating.

— DFW.com takes issue with PureWow's pick for Texas' iconic restaurant, Salt Lick. The website suggests Franklin Barbecue, Black's Barbecue, or Pecan Lodge as suitable replacements.

— On the other hand, PureWow did put Franklin Barbecue, Kerlin BBQ, and Black’s Barbecue on its best barbecue list.

Austin Business Journal discovered that total alcohol sales dropped a bit last month, but individual bar sales were a little higher. JW Marriott was the leader of the pack again.

— Brooklyn Decker talked up her Austin favorites Uchiko, Josephine House, and Garage to The Telegraph.
