Weekly-ish Recap: It is a Week, There is a Recap

Forgive me while I go on a 1-minute, profanity-laced rant about RuPaul's Drag Race. What? You don't watch? Well look, I have made some bad decisions in my life too, but I don't go around flaunting them when there's a remedy. Go watch. Start with Season 3 or Season 6. You'll love it. 

So okay, Drag Race. ADORE, W.T.F.? I THOUGHT YOU WOULD WIN. Adore Delano is one of the most captivating drag queens to ever appear on the show: She's stupid talented (the only queen to produce songs that actually sound good), charming, and you always have a sense of who she is. I GET that she felt she wasn't being rewarded for being herself, but WHY DID YOU DO THE SHOW? I'm sorry but I'm calling #conspiracy because everybody wants Alaska to get a crown. 

Also, Tatianna has probably had the biggest redemption of anyone this season and she gets kicked off in Week 2? She makes the show infinitely more watchable! And freaking PHI PHI was in the "Top 3?" Not about that. 

What am I about? #TeamKatya. That Bj√∂rk laugh killed me. 

Okay. I am done. Let's talk about food.

Here's the inside scoop from the top influencers in Austin on what is actually delicious. For the record, my favorite things were either the madai nigiri from Uchi, the baked spaghetti (I know how it sounds, trust) from Sophia's, the fromage blanc from VOX Table, or literally anything from Cafe Josie
