Last week, we posted on our Facebook page an impromptu video that local mom, singer/songwritter Emily Mills created which was posted by her friend. At the time, that video had hit about 43,000 views, and it has since reached over 200,000 views. Given that video's popularity, Emily, along with her husband Brett and friends Kylie Higgins and Kelly Tetens, decided to have a little fun with it and record a full-length, more professional version of the video and post it to YouTube.

There's no denying it. HGTV's "Fixer Upper" is a hit show, and Waco is the star of the show. Ok, maybe Chip and Joanna Gaines are the stars, but Waco is a huge part of the show. People everywhere are talking about it. BuzzFeed recently posted a list of 49 Thoughts You Have Every Time You Watch HGTV's "Fixer Upper." People are flocking to Waco from all over the country to shop at the new Magnolia silos. With Waco's new-found stardom, most people in town are talking about the show that is making Waco the envy of HGTV fans everywhere. Here are 20 things that people from Waco say about "Fixer Upper."
The last year has brought about selection of burger joints that have come to the west side of I-35. I had the idea for this in the form of a comedic decision tree on how to pick which to select for your day, but it grew far too large to fit in a viable web display format online. Since we were too large to do the decision tree, I will instead go at this from a rundown of all the options and provide you with breakdown of each, as I see them from my view and try to zoom out and see from others as well. While I am not a normal consumer of fast foods, I have recently ventured to try each of these in the last month or so to give them each a fair shake and refresh my view on them.
The best thing about being known around town as a restaurant blogger is that, every now and then, someone will say, “Hey, come by and eat something.”
On Sunday night, I had stopped in at The Dancing Bear Pub to meet up with a friend in town when bartender Jeremy Mercer introduced me to Crazy Horse Grill chef Nabor Leal. They wanted me to try something from the truck at that time, but I had already hit my calorie number for the day. (If you’re suggesting that I was about to go over anyway because I was at the pub and obviously going to drink beer, well, I have a simple retort. I don’t include beverages in my calorie count.) But I promised to return later in the week.
I have to admit I was hesitant about going to the Magnolia Silos for lunch today, but I've been craving Club Sandwich for a couple of weeks, and the silos are their new home base. If I can avoid crowds, I typically do, which is why the silos are last on my list of places to go for lunch. Well, at least the were last on my list until today.
This time of year people start asking where they can go eat for Thanksgiving so they don’t have to make food for the family, or maybe just for themselves. Some want to eat at home without the hassle of cooking.
I know what you're thinking. It's about time we updated our old, tired-looking website. This has been in the works for some time now, but as Chad mentioned recently, we've been in a pretty busy season the past few months. But enough with the excuses. Let's talk about the new design!
Zoës Kitchen is open.
I'm tempted to leave this blog at that, one line and roll.
Last night, I made an overdue trip to Saltgrass Steak House.
I am still in charge of this blog, and it’s a new restaurant, so I needed to dine there. I was looking for an excuse, and just needed enough consecutive days in town to get around to it. As it happened, a couple of events inspired such a trip on Wednesday night. I won’t bore you with the details, but it was well worth loosening the wallet a bit.
