Venue Info

I know you’ve been to Whole Foods because you’re a living, breathing human, but have you been to the flagship? The massive, multi-level megaplex on Lamar is really something special, as far as grocery stores go. There are events here, like ice skating on the plaza in the winter, and live music performances some nights, and when was the last time you went to a grocery store for a concert or to practice your double axel? The groceries are everything you’d expect, with a little more variety because there’s a lot more space, and the food court is fuller than any shopping mall’s, with cameos from local food stand favorites, and picnic tables on the patio upstairs for you to dine with a view. There’s even a cold, walk-in beer room with craft beer lining the walls like a shrine to barley and hops, which is also great because Austin can get really hot, and what better way to cool off than amongst beer?
