I have to say, I have a knack for finding free things/events/swag, etc. Still not sure if that is something to be proud of, but hey, it certainly helps when you’re ballin’ on a student budget.


Those four letters get me every time. 

Yesterday, Briggo Coffee Haus opened its doors turned its machine on right on The Drag across from the University of Texas at Austin campus, and will change your coffee experience entirely. It’s located inside of Moojo, so why not treat yo self to some ice cream while you’re at it.



The machine that does it all.

Unlike your typical coffee shop that has a barista making your custom creation, Briggo is a machine that dispenses your custom creation—so 2018, am I right? You can order online or through your mobile device (find it in the app store here), fully customize your order, and pick it up when you’re ready! You read that right—when you are ready. 

Normally, when you order coffee through your mobile device at a place like Starbucks, img_0905.jpg
your drink will be made as soon as the barista can make it and will place it on the counter for pickup. Obviously, the barista does not care if you are there waiting for it to be made or if you let it sit for 30 minutes before picking it up, which may mean you have a cold latte or a melted iced caramel macchiato. With Briggo, however, the coffee is made upon arrival. You select your order on the screen, enter the personal code given upon ordering, and BOOM. Your caffeine fix appears.



Download the app and save your favorite coffee combos for quick ordering on the go; your first and 11th drink are F R E E. Invite friends to earn even more free drinks! If you head to Briggo today (1/17/18), you can get a free cup of coffee, a free shirt, AND a free taco if you post on social media about Briggo (while supplies last, of course).

Great quality. Total Customization. All at your own convenience.fullsizerender-copy.jpg




Every winter, the Whole Foods on Lamar–the Whole Foods Flagship–sets up an ice skating rink for anyone and everyone to enjoy and to help us pretend that we live in a region that actually has a true winter (although it has snowed here in ATX on more than one occasion thus far!). IMG_1292.JPG

It is set up on the plaza rooftop, where Whole Foods hosts a plethora of other events, which is really a unique idea.


Ten dollars will get you a pair of ice skates and entry into the rink to skate for as long as your legs can handle. Or for as long as you can handle these frigid temperatures, since it is outside.

Now, I know what you are thinking- an ice skating rink on the roof? How big can this thing really be? But not to worry! You aren’t actually on the roof, just the roof of the plaza. This will be the 13th season so they have perfected every last detail. Your only concern is how many people may see you fall. Or is that just mine?

The rink is open daily from 10 AM – 9 PM, and if you go on a Friday you can jam out with KUTX for its KUTX Music Fridays series.

Whether you’re a regular Michelle Kwan or just starting out, it’s a must-do for everyone!
