EAT | Fat Cats
A recent birthday introduced us to Fat Cats here in Austin, and we’re already checking the calendar for our next excuse to celebrate. We had their Espresso Blackberry Cake (a must-try), and you can order their pies, donuts, pastries and other cakes for any occasion. With options like Italian Cream Cake with pecans and coconut or Vanilla Buttercream with your choice of frosting from peanut butter to lemon to mocha, we either hope we know a lot of Scorpios who love cake, or at the very least just some pastry lovers.
WATCH | Scenes From A Marriage
We knew from the trailer that this would be an emotional show. We didn’t realize that it would be so binge-worthy. Even in its most awkward, frustrating and heartbreaking moments we couldn't stop watching, with Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac putting on such an amazing performance, it makes you lean in as you wait for the next scene. We definitely suggest watching the extras after each show to hear their take on the episode and what they saw their characters going through right along with you.
SHOP | Naiomi Glasses
Naiomi Glasses began weaving blankets with her grandmother and soon expanded to making beautiful works of art in the bags that she creates. Seventh generation Diné, 100% of the profits she makes from her sustainable and durable bags go to Chizh for Cheii (Wood for Grandpa), which ensures elders of the Navajo Nation have free and accessible firewood. You can see more of her work here and support a great cause and an incredibly talented artist.
VISIT | Barrett's Coffee
This spot in North Austin, just off of St Johns Ave, offers up some of the friendliest and welcoming service in a great spot to get work done while you get well-caffeinated. In a hurry? You can grab a jug of their cold brew or a bag of their own roast to take on-the-go. We try to make a habit of stopping by early in the morning since the amazing staff is sure to help make it start off on a great note.
Water-repellent wax cloth, blanket-lined for warmer wear, and just downright good looking in all colors, this Stag exclusive supply jacket is handmade and perfect for whatever weather you have coming your way this season. Rain or snow (or maybe just brisk wind), this one will make sure you look good and stay protected from the elements while you take it head on.
MAKE | Holiday Mule Drink Recipe
We’ve been looking for ways to transition our favorite drinks to their holiday versions and this one was the quickest and easiest switch we’ve made. For those of you who like it a little bit sweet, you can add a dash of simple syrup or switch out the bite of ginger beer for the softer version of ginger ale. Cheers!
1 1/2 ounce vodka
1/2 cup ginger beer
1/4 cup cranberry juice
1/2 ounce lime juice
Put it all together and stir. It's that easy. Add ice, lemon wedges, mint...any garnish works well with this one.
