Weekend Roundup: FSU Football, Convenience Store Lunch

Posted by in Entertainment, Food & Drink, Sports

This week the weather has been rather unfortunate in Austin: overcast skies, numerous thunderstorms, and of course – the floods. It has been a very bad week for plenty of people around these parts.
