— Tex-Mex restaurant El Arroyo is known for its witty signs, commenting on everything from the World Series, SXSW, politics, and more. It decided to gather the best of its signs into a book collection. El Arroyo's Big Book of Signs: Volume One is available on the restaurant's website for $24.99. It’s safe to expect that there will be a volume two in the future.

Texas Monthly sings the praises of a simple Thanksgiving dinner at cafeteria chain Luby's, which offers what writer Dan Solomon describe as, the “perfect Venn diagram between ‘Thanksgiving’ and ‘casual dining.’”

— As part of People’s annual “Sexiest Man” package, the magazine highlighted who it deemed as the "sexiest male chefs" in the country. This includes Asian trailer Soursop's Teddy Bricker. Along with his cooking skills, it wrote: "His mesmerizing brown eyes aren't bad, either."

— Sweets shop La Pâtisserie is handing out free miniature cakes next week on Sunday, November 26. It’s happening at both of its locations (Burnet Road and South Austin). Flavors will include funfetti, chocolate raspberry pistachio, and gluten-free hazelnut.
