North Austin has been lacking a trendy entertainment spot for far too long. Punch Bowl Social’s combination gastropub and adult entertainment complex certainly fills the void.

Whether you’re going out for lunch during the week, a quiet date night, or a boozy brunch on the weekend, Cipollina offers well-priced, locally-sourced food.

No Va stands out from the rest of Rainey Street with its large, modern facade and inventive menu.

The 2nd Annual Austin Meatball Festival, featuring a variety of scrumptious meatballs from as many as 15 of Austin’s favorite restaurants, will take place Nov. 22 from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. in the parking area and outdoor area at classic Italian eatery Winflo Osteria, located at 1315 W. Sixth St. Hosted by Winflo, the Austin Meatball Festival will benefit LifeWorks.

The Austin Meatball Festival will include a competition in which restaurants prepare their finest meatball concoctions, from traditional and non-traditional, to meatball sandwiches and sliders. Competing restaurants include Winflo Osteria, Benji's Cantina, Native Family, Marye’s Pizza, Freedmen's, NO VA Kitchen, Cru Wine Bar, Cipollina, Punch Bowl Social and The Carillon, among others.

In addition to plates of meaty treats, live music will get the ball rolling in The Listening Room, Winflo’s intimate and exclusive music venue downstairs from the restaurant. This year’s artists include Jimmy La Fave, Tameka Jones, and Rocketboys!

Proceeds from the Austin Meatball Festival will be donated to LifeWorks Youth & Family Alliance, a fearless advocate for youth and families seeking their path to self-sufficiency and committed to innovative problem solving, shared accountability and a relentless focus on achieving real, sustainable and measurable results to the clients we serve.
