Went by the new P. Terry’s on Lamar designed by Michael Hsu. Great update on the 1950’s diner style. Often diners attempt to nail the retro thing but never really make it their own in the process. Not so here. P. Terry’s holds its own on the burger and fries front as well (though Five Guys holds the edge the burger front).
Checked out the Lakemore open house yesterday. As good as the pictures may be, the house is simply incredible. Reminds me of LA or Palm Spring style mid-century. A place built for entertaining. Anyone want to by modernaustin.com for $800k?
Lastly, I have roughly 30 ‘vintage’ Dwell magazines to give away to anyone who wants them. Spanning 2002 to 2004. Re-live Dwell’s transformation from a skinny little magazine with spunk to a magazine chalked full of ads and self-importance (new motto: triple the size, half the content). I kid of course. Mostly. I also have a year’s worth of Architectural Record from 2003 / 2004.
First come, first serve (though I will bump you up in line for the aforementioned $800k).

I’ll get in line, Ben. I’ll check my back issues and see how far back they go.
I would love to take the Dwell magazines off your hands! Thanks.
Hmmm, I like Top Notch a lot better than 5 Guys…
Many people seem to love Top Notch. I’ve only been once but the burger was very dry and overcooked. Perhaps I should try again sometime.
would you kindly tell me what kind of tile they have in the lakemore kitchen?
