¦ Open: P. Terry's. The sixth location of the popular burger restaurant at 701 S. Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway), at the corner of Loop 360 and Bee Cave Road. Owner Patrick Terry says that this is his company's largest location and is the only one to feature both all natural applewood-smoked bacon and a double drive-through. 329-6707, pterrys.com.

¦ Open: The Red Room Lounge. For the past few years, Austin-based Wines.com has operated out of a cool partially underground space at 306 E. Third St. After the company hired Bill Elsey, who won the 2011 Texas Best Sommelier award from TexSom, it ramped up efforts to turn part of the space into a wine lounge, which has finally opened. Elsey is now offering an extensive by-the-glass selection and even deeper wine menu Tuesdays through Saturday from noon on. 644-1737. Search "Red Room Lounge" on Facebook.

¦ Moving: Snap Kitchen Pod, Patika Coffee, Turf N Surf Po' Boy, Kebabalicious, Belgian Waffle Co. and Chi'Lantro. The trailers at the northeast corner of Second Street and Congress Avenue have to move by this weekend in order for construction to start on the new 1,000-room JW Marriott Hotel. No word yet on where each of the trucks will end up.
