Gelato Shop Shutter
South First gelato shop Tasty Spoon is closing at 1413 South First Street. Its last day of service will be on Saturday, January 27. “Although this journey is sadly ending, it has been an incredible journey that I’m so thankful to have experienced,” noted the Facebook announcement. Owner Ashley MacDonald, who studied at Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, Italy for all things-gelato, had opened the frozen sweets store in April 2017. Just down the street is gelato shop Dolce Neve and Fresa’s Chicken al Carbon, which sells cups and pints of ice cream.

Whataburger Wedding
A San Antonio couple got married at Whataburger last week. Jordan and Arianne Moore held a second ceremony at the fast-food chain restaurant.

North Loop Car Break-Ins
North Loop Japanese restaurant Kome expressed its frustrations with the Austin Police Department after filing reports about increased car break-ins in the neighborhood. “They aren’t patrolling as often,” said director of operations Elizabeth Hyman,” or being as responsive to our calls when we do call in.”
