— Texans love their Whataburger so much, they want to celebrate their marriages with it. The fast food chain even dedicated a page on its website to couples who celebrated their weddings at Whataburger, whether it’s through a post-nuptial burger and fries or professional wedding photos.

After being open for nearly a week, downtown restaurant Cookbook Cafe is closed today along with the Austin Central Library because of what it stated is a “city maintenance issue.”

— Los Angeles-born but now Austin-based cupcake chain Sprinkles teamed up with Tito’s Handmade Vodka for two special baked treats inspired by drinks available this summer. Both the TIto’s Down Home Punch and the American Mule are made with vodka-infused frostings. The first, made up of an orange cake with berry-pomegranate compote, and lemon-berry marble frosting, is available through Sunday, July 8, and the second with a ginger cake, crystallized ginger, and lime frosting, is available from Monday, July 9 through Sunday, July 22. In Austin, it will be available at the Domain Northside location.

— A Chick-fil-A employee and customer saved a choking man in the West Slaughter Lane location of the fast food chain on Saturday, June 23.
