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




So, my parents came to Austin for the weekend to visit me and my sister and it was a weekend chock full of eating. As we all know, Austin is known for its awesome food scene, so you can bet we hit a different place for every meal. I’ve lived in Austin for over a year now, and I feel like I’ve tried so many restaurants at this point, yet there are still so. many. I haven’t tried. So, it’s always fun to try a new restaurant, and this weekend we did just that.

We ate at Abel’s on the Lake for the first time this weekend and it was awesome. We had what is arguably the best table in the whole place: right in the corner on the dock, so we had the waterfront view on two sides of our table, accompanied by two swans and some type of duck. We learned that when you come to Abel’s, you come for two things: the food and the view. Nothing else really matters because those two alone are enough. It is located right on Lake Austin, right next to the dams, which were actually pretty cool to see.

We all ordered a variety of dishes, starting out with the chicken nachos app, which were delicious and I would def order them again. If you like nachos, you’ll love these. And, we were just in time for #nationalnachoday. Score.


Nachos on the lake? Yes, please!

Although it was my first time at Abel’s, it was definitely not my last. I will be back (probably very soon) especially with this nice, cool, fall weather comin’ in hot so I can enjoy sitting out on the lake.

Watch out, Fort Lauderdale beach…Abel’s might have somethin’ on ya!   😉
