New Central Library

710 W. Cesar Chavez St., Austin, TX 78701
The new Austin library opened its doors on Saturday, Oct. 28 and is currently taking over everyone’s insta-story. Three stories and 200,000 square feet, the new modern space is more than a place to shelve books—it’s an experience. Coming soon to add to its appeal is a cafe, Cookbook, which will enable library goers to eat and drink while diving into their favorite book. After seven years and $125 million dollars, Austin has itself a new public library for the whole city to enjoy for years to come. 

Pool Burger

2315 Lake Austin Blvd., Austin, TX 78703
McGuire Moorman Hospitality (the group behind Jeffrey’s, Elizabeth Street Cafe, and Clark’s) has done it again with their latest innovative culinary experience. The tiki bar and burger trailer are housed in a 1968 Airstream off of Lake Austin Boulevard. Options include house-made veggie patties, hormone-free beef burgers, crinkle fries, and gourmet soft serve. The full bar is separate from the trailer and features classic tiki cocktails.

Snappy Salads

701 S. Capital of Texas Hwy., Austin, TX 78746
Chris Dahlander, a former UT student, took his desire to eat quick, nutritious meals and turned it into the Snappy Salads concept in 2006. On Oct. 25, Chris returned to his roots by opening the first Austin location. The menu features specialty salads such as their number-one selling grilled avocado salad with chipotle lime vinaigrette as well as the option to create your own salad with added proteins such as wild-caught sockeye salmon or grass-fed tenderloin.

Modern Acupuncture

3300 Bee Cave Rd., Ste. 610, Austin TX, 78746
9722 Great Hills Trail, Ste 125, Austin, TX 78759

Experience the healing, relaxing benefits of acupuncture in a spa-like environment at either of Modern Acupuncture’s two new Austin locations, both opening this month. Modern Acupuncture uses a distal needling technique to relieve pain, treat allergies, reduce stress, increase blood flow, and more, without removing a single piece of clothing. Locations in Westlake and the Arboretum start healing this month, so visit the one nearest you for your first complimentary session (no strings attached). Unwind, relax, and find a pathway to greater health, all in 30 minutes or less.
