— Thankfully, April Fools’ Day took place on Sunday, but the weekend didn’t stop Texas and Austin restaurants and food/drink companies from participating in the day of pranks:

— Flix Brewhouse, the combination movie theater, restaurant and brewery mini-chain that is based in Round Rock, is looking to expand more, with slated locations for Wisconsin, Arizona, and elsewhere in Texas.

— East Austin cafe Fleet Coffee is closing at 1 p.m. for air conditioning maintenance.
