Sprinkles

IMG_3415

There is a new cupcake joint in town and they have a 24/7 cupcake ATM.  Sprinkles serves up some super moist and yummy cupcakes.  I received my dark chocolate cupcake from the ATM, but had to go inside for my water.  Maybe one day the ATM could serve up drinks also?  Or maybe next time I will bring my own beverage?  Either way, if you have a Sprinkles in your area, check it out.  🙂

Rock Rose All Access

IMG_1681

This afternoon, there was a cool event to benefit a well deserving charity at Rock Rose in the Domain.  For a tiny fee, you got to roam from one business to another and sample their foods, drinks, and wares.  I popped into the following establishments.

  • Raven & Lily – A nice little shop in the area
  • Birds Barbershop – My latest go to hair cutting place
  • Lavaca Street Bar – A casual place to get a drink and watch some sports
  • Mad Greens – A salad joint that I visit regularly at the Round Rock location
  • Jack & Ginger’s – A great place for a well diversified beer menu
  • Thai-Kun – A very tasty and spicy restaurant for original Thai food
  • Apanas Coffee – A most excellent coffee bar

Overall, this was a nice event and here are some photos to give you an idea of what the area looks like on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Yard House

My crew from work ended up at Yard House this afternoon for Happy Hour.  This is a nice new addition to the Domain within a short walk from Whole Foods.  They have yards, half yards, 130 different taps, drinks other than beer, and good food.  My beer of choice was the Clown Shoes Clementine Belgian style White Ale.  We enjoyed our time here today, and I recommend you check it out if you are a beer lover.

Evening at the Domain

IMG_1280

If you go walking at the Domain on a Friday evening, you can experience several things.  You can stop and admire the red roses.  You can catch a rock band playing on the Great Lawn stage.  Drop in at Flaming Pizza and build your own pizza creation.  Make friends with a grackle who really just wants to taste a bit of your pizza.  And as you walk back, you can catch the sun as it begins to set behind the power lines.  Not too bad for a Friday evening.

HOPE Art Installation

IMG_1060

The HOPE Art Installation is related to the HOPE Outdoor Gallery in Austin where muralists and street artists display their creations.  The HOPE Art Installation is located in the Rock Rose area of the Domain.  It is a collection of art hanging on the building walls in the neighborhood of bars, shops, and restaurants.  It is wide open to the public, so hopefully all goes well.  If you find yourself in the area, definitely check it out while strolling through the new development.
