Brace Yourselves. The Holidays are Coming.

In this issue, holiday hours begin for some, a correction from AVN, and Austin Veg events this week. But first…

COVID-19 cases in Austin and Texas are on the rise. To protect yourself and your loved ones, follow this Holiday Safety Guidance provided by Also, the Austin-Travis County Health Authority has extended the existing COVID-19 emergency rules, which includes masks requirements and social distancing for restaurants through the end of 2020.

AVN correction: Weeks ago, a new food truck, Rogue Radish, opened. When it opened, it labeled itself as a vegetarian/vegan restaurant. We’ve shared their updates, which essentially promoted this food truck as such. Last week, we learned that the restaurant offers meat products upon request, something we, admittedly, might have missed.

We reached out to Rogue Radish to confirm our findings. Here is their response: “Sorry if there was some confusion. We have had locally sourced goat and eggs on our menu from day one. We’re more committed to whole/unprocessed foods than veganism; however, our bowl without additions is 100% vegan.”

AVN’s focus is on vegan and vegetarian businesses, so we will no longer follow or share Rogue Radish updates.
