It's going to be a busy month. The kind where I really need to keep a calendar because I can't keep it all straight in my brain. One of the things I definitely have down is the Cupcakes & Cocktails event on May 16 at Sironia.
This is a quarterly affair that just popped up on our radar when Sironia partnered with us earlier this year. For free stuff (food and drink and more) it doesn't get much better than this event.
Waco native Brian Patterson has a new EP, "A Short Century," out there for your listening pleasure. We really dig it and we couldn't be happier for our buddy.
A few weeks ago, we were asked on Facebook what was going in the new building next to Taco Cabana. We quickly found out that two restaurant and/or retail spaces were available but couldn't get a name.
Now we have one. Papa John's is expanding its Waco operations into this location, according to Kenny Stevens from The Reid Company. Obviously, this will be convenient for some, especially Baylor students who live on campus or in near-campus apartments. But it's also not the most exciting thing ever since we 1) already have this restaurant in town and 2) usually have Papa John's delivered, so as long as we're in delivery range, it probably doesn't matter too much if there's a new one. It's a good thing for Papa John's, though, as they will be able to cover more territory more efficiently.
The Texas Rangers drubbed the Chicago White Sox, 10-6, on Tuesday night, using a 6-run 6th inning to get the deal done. I like this for several reasons, mostly because it gets the Rangers one win closer to however many wins it will take to make the playoffs.
For the purposes of this blog, however, the most important item of note is that the Rangers scored seven or more runs, kicking in a Papa John's offer. When the Rangers score 7 or more runs, Papa John's patrons can plug in the code Rangers7 in the promotional-code box and get 50 percent off the cost of their total order.
It's time for Vitek's to properly celebrate the Gut Pak's victory in the recent CookingChannelTV.com College Eats Bracket Challenge.
In case you weren't aware, the Gut Pak outlasted 32 other food choices from college-town eateries around the country in March and early-April. So Vitek's is throwing a party from 4:30 p.m. to close on Thursday at their Speight Ave location.
Over the weekend, I saw a picture of one of the Dichotomy crew taking a sledgehammer to a wall, which I took as a sure sign that the progress of our new coffee bar has shifted gears in its progress toward becoming a reality.
Sure enough, co-proprietor Brett Jameson confirmed that construction has begun on the inside and outside of the building. They're hoping to be open by September. Just a heads up, in case you didn't already know, you can currently find Dichotomy's coffee offerings at their location inside the Croft Art Gallery or at the Waco Downtown Farmers Market.
In the interest of not burying the lead, I'm going to put this offer right up front and explain it later. The first Baylor student to go to Kitok's for the first time this week, take a picture and Tweet it at us (@wacofork) will receive a $25 gift certificate to the restaurant of his or her choice. Don't rush out the door today as Kitok's is closed on Monday, but it's open Tuesday through Saturday, so rush out the door tomorrow.
Now for some explanation.
Who serves the best hot dog in town?
[ "How 'bout …" is the logical extension of our tagline "Where you wanna eat?" Because we've all been there when someone says "Where you wanna eat?" and then everyone stands around a little awkwardly until someone cautiously offers up "How 'bout …" and then the name of a restaurant. It's also a way for us to highlight the restaurants that we want to highlight. Here it goes. ]
