Austin restaurants open for takeout during winter storm Tuesday
The winter storm has paralyzed much of Austin business and social life. Many restaurants have lost power and some have closed because both customers and staff cannot get there. But some restaurants have remained open for takeout, servicing their neighborhoods and offering a relatively safe option for hungry customers who can walk to the businesses.
These businesses were open as of 2 p.m. Tuesday, but it's important to call or check social channels before heading to these establishments, as they may close with little or no advance notice for provisions, weather or safety reasons.
Old Thousand on East 11th Street is open until 4 p.m. and around 2 p.m. announced they were giving away 200 hot meals to guests courtesy of Deep Eddy Vodka.
Southside Flying Pizza on South Congress Avenue. The restaurant posted on Facebook around 12:30 p.m. that it was giving away 350 pizzas through a donation from Deep Eddy Vodka. Management asked that customers not call the restaurant.
