Austin-based burger chain Hopdoddy Burger Bar is opening a whole bunch of new Texas restaurants this late summer and fall. First up is its second San Antonio location in the Vineyard at 1301 North Loop 1604 West starting on Saturday, August 31. Then there’s that first-ever San Marcos restaurant at 200 Springtown Way, Suite 101 in early October. Finally, there’s the first Cedar Park location at 1320 East Whitestone Boulevard, Suite 690 opening in early November.
Late Night Restaurant Closure
Austin late-night restaurant Kitchen Window is closing within billiards joint The Grand along Airport Boulevard. Its last day is tomorrow, Saturday, August 31. The literal kitchen window spot is known for its late night and/or post-drinking-friendly items like cheesy sandwiches, tofu karaage, tacos, and barbecue noodle bowls.
Vegan Pig Benefit
Austin restaurants, food trucks, and bakeries are taking part in the second-ever Pig Week, which will benefit nonprofit organization Central Texas Pig Rescue. Participating spots like Citizen Eatery, Li’l Nonna’s, and BBQ Revolution will offer vegan food and drink, where proceeds of the items will go towards the pig sanctuary. People can keep track of their orders through a map, and whoever orders the most dishes will be entered in a raffle. It runs from Saturday, August 31 through Sunday, September 8. There’s a kick-off party at Possum Park from 7 to 9 p.m. and an ending party at the Buzz Mill.
