Austin’s first public park, Pease Park, is under construction... again!** **While the Shoal Creek Trail is still open for use (#BlessUp), the Kingsbury Commons are temporarily shut down to allow for some exciting renovations. When reopened, the Commons will include spring-fed water features, a splash pad, improved basketball courts and baseball fields, and even a brand new bocce court. Sadly, construction is said to take up to a year. Luckily, Austin has plenty of green spaces to escape to.

If tacos are your thing (and our guess is they are), you’re probably familiar with Veracruz All Natural, an Austin original serving up homemade Mexican food featuring fresh, organic ingredients. With a storefront location on the horizon, the local hot spot is adding to the hype by opening a new food truck at their future home on Webberville Rd. The mobile eatery will serve up tacos, tortas, and more. Even better? It’ll also be accompanied by a second truck called Veracruz Juice Bar that will be dedicated to agua frescas, juices, and smoothies.
This week, we discovered the duo we never knew we needed: JuiceLand + Kosmic Kombucha! The two local companies have partnered up to bring us Blueniversal Consciousness, a brand new flavor of kombucha made with lemon, ginger, and blue algae. Stop by your neighborhood JuiceLand to give it a try.
