Taking on Breckenridge Magazine

23 Jul

It’s been a year since I started working on Breckenridge Magazine, so yea… I think it’s about time to post some work from it. The major design change made is the cover. I’ve given it a more updated look. With some creative freedom, I also had some fun with the features. Here’s a few samples. To see more, please visit http://breckmag.com. And don’t forget to pick up a copy if you’re ever in the area!

Austin Gypsy Picnic Trailer Food Festival

7 Nov

I checked out the Austin Gypsy Picnic Trailer Food Festival this weekend and was able to try out a few places. The weather was clear and sunny, lots of families, dogs, live music, and even story reading for the kids! The trailers were set up like how they’re located within the city and there were large street signs to indicate what area you’re in. It was also really cool seeing all the different trailer designs. The lines got quite long by noon so it took on average about 45 mins to get your food.  I was able to try out three different trailers: Chi’ Lantro BBQ, Jalopy, Turf N Surf  Po’ Boys.  I was pretty pleased with all three. My favorites were the Kim Chi fries w/chicken from Chi’ Lantro BBQ, and the mango taco from Jalopy.

Meat Pie GOOD

21 Oct

I went to ACL two weeks ago and when it came time to get some food, I had to choose strategically.  Not only did it need to please my taste buds, but it needed to be easy to eat.  The less I had to get my hands dirty, the better.  My two friends decided to get Boomerang’s meat pie. I’ve never had one before, so I waited for them to get it so that I could try theirs.  Let me tell you – SOOOOO tasty, I had to get one for myself!  We ordered the Guinness Steak and Potato pie.  The crust was light and flaky and inside was a nice, stewy filling of beef, potatoes and onion – the beef was surprisingly tender.  I do have to admit, it was not the easiest food to eat due to the flaky crust, but it was worth it! I hope to try their Southwest Chicken pie next time!

Sorry… couldn’t really get a good shot of the filling inside with my ‘awesome iPhone camera’……

Crab Enchiladas

brownie with toffee and vanilla ice cream

I had dinner at South Congress Cafe last night!  I’ve only been there for brunch so it was nice being able to try out their dinner menu. The enchiladas were just okay but the toffee in that dessert was awesome! http://www.southcongresscafe.com
