— The name and contents of downtown music venue The Parish are being sold by owner ATX Brands, according to Austin 360. However, the actual club space on the second floor of the East 6th Street address isn't being sold. This makes it seem like ATX Brands owner Doug Guller will turn the space into something else, much like what he did with the ground floor music venue Parish Underground. He turned into the only Austin location of Chicago deep dish pizza chain Gino's East. Then he closed the pizzeria and transformed it into a chicken tender restaurant, Happy Chicks. ATX Brands sold off another music venue within its umbrella, Scoot Inn, to C3 over the summer after extensive renovations. The Parish’s names and goods will be sold through an online auction, which will begin on Friday, December 1.

— Joe's Bakery shares its huevos rancheros recipe with Good Taste in anticipation of The Austin Cookbook, which will highlight iconic dishes from local restaurants, publishing next year.

— Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett saved a man who was choking at an Austin-area Chick-fil-A yesterday. He stepped in after another person tried to perform the Heimlich maneuver on the choking victim, and was successful, as he told the Statesman.

— Impending Austin seafood restaurant Guild is heading to San Antonio for a pop-up dinner at Mexican tasting menu restaurant Mixtli on Sunday, December 3. Chef Sterling Ridings’ seven-course dinner will include ceviche with Thai lime soup and trout with smoked beats. The $80 dinner has two seatings, 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Guild is set to open sometime in early 2018.
