— Burnet Road restaurants are uniting to offer neighborhood specials with Burnet Road Eats. Several spots will offer a selected drink and dish for $10 or less on the first Wednesday of every month. The first is being held tomorrow, Wednesday, September 6, with Andiamo, Bonhomie, Bufalina, Due, and Peached Tortilla.

— San Antonio bar Paramour boasts of Texas’ very first champagne vending machine from Moët and Chandon. Guests will be able to order chilled mini-bottles of champagne by purchasing special gold coins from the bar.

— An audit of the Austin Public Health's Environmental Services division, which oversees restaurant inspections, found that inspectors "wasted city resources as a result of grossly inefficient practices and procedures," like inspecting restaurants without checking in with supervisors and conducting personal business during work hours.

— A New York City firefighter ate his first Whataburger burger while helping out with Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. He said it was a "good burger," and that it was "unbelievable."

— South Lamar restaurant Flour and Vine underwent some renovations, with a covered patio, new menu with American and Italian dishes, and catering.

— Business Insider tried Picnik's bottled butter coffee, which is now found in Whole Foods. The writer didn’t like the cappuccino one, which she described as "tast[ing] like watered down coffee," but she enjoyed the mega-sweet mocha latte.
