— Wu Tang Clan's GZA namedropped Wu Chow during his set at Mohawk last night. He said how he has some of the restaurant’s food backstage for him: "eggplant, all that good vegetarian shit, no meat, no meat."

— In light of the recent news that the South Congress Block on Academy Drive would be razed for a mixed-use development, Doc's Motorworks Bar & Grill told KXAN that it still has 13 years left on its corner lease, and doesn’t plan on moving.

— Fresa's Chicken al Carbon part two on South First is now dishing out to-go breakfast from the window counter.

— Southwest regional magazine Dorado was lucky enough to go hunting for antelope in South Texas with Dai Due's Jesse Griffiths. He even shared some recipes for antelope ceviche, and margaritas with prickly pears and mezcal.

— Because sometimes words aren’t enough, a new food photo-based app, Entree, was released to UT students to help the college kids figure out where they want to eat based on photos.

— According to Foursquare, late night UT eats include Halal Bros, Voodoo Doughnuts, Kismet Cafe, Kerbey Lane, and several others.

Food & Wine named WingStop as Texas' best chicken wing offering, because former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is the chain’s spokesperson.

— After two women fought inside of the Subway on South Congress last week, one woman stabbed the other one.

— Some California investor bought out the land where Deep Eddy Vodka's distillery is located in Dripping Springs.
