— Because SXSW is prime stunt-time, Salt Lick offered up free helicopter rides to several UberEats winners over the weekend, which included a barbecue lunch.

— The latest restaurant from Parkside Projects brings a new juice bar to downtown Austin. Jugo opened over the weekend. The menu lineup includes juices, smoothies, salads, bowls, and snacks (both made on the spot or prepackaged). The Brazos Street spot is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.

— Lick Honest Ice Creams co-owners Chad Palmatier and Anthony Sobotik were featured in People's new web series, American Doers. The couple shared how they came to open a locally-sourced ice cream shop in Austin.

— Sam Shanblum, the man who provided restaurants with equipment from the 1940s to 1980s, died on Sunday. His customers included Cisco's and Fonda San Miguel.

— And, yes, SXSW continues this week, with more panels, parties, pop-ups, concerts, and, yeah, free food and drinks.
