— Austin music institution Saxon Pub is still on track to relocate into the Saint Elmo Public Market, though instead of moving to Congress Avenue, the music bar will be found within the market instead. Construction on the space should begin before the end of the year.

— Making food is an all-hours gig, and Austin Monthly checked in with the city's late night working owls, like Frankie Saucedo, one of La Barbecue's pitmasters, who eats lunch at 4:30 a.m., Easy Tiger baker Michael Young (he likes that traffic works in his favor), and others.

— Attendees of any UT sports games can now grab slices from Austin-born Gatti's Pizza. The pizza chain will be available at most stadium concessions, from football at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium (wash it down with beer and tacos), basketball at the Erwin Center, baseball, soccer, and track and field games, and more. It'll serve slices of cheese and pepperoni, along with rolls.

— Delish's pick for the best barbecue (determined with Foursquare) in Texas comes from Stanley's Famous Pit Barbecue in Tyler.

— Navigating through USA Today’s barbecue slideshow, you’ll find out that the publication recommends a trip out to Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew for beef ribs, sausages, brisket, and Frito pie. Also: Rudy's and Lamberts Downtown Barbecue.

— Jacoby's owner Adam Jacoby is among CultureMap’s newly-launched Texans Under 30, which is pegged as one of the "state's budding power players." Jacoby is included for his Texan restaurant, which which sources from his family ranch in Melvin.

— Sushi lovers should book tickets to Otoko's dedicated sushi nights on Wednesdays, October 12 and 26. Head chef and raw fish magician Yoshi Okai will focus solely on the traditional sushi, along with other dishes. Reservations are $200.
