ARTIST STATEMENT //
At times, we have that inner voice compelling us to plan ahead, rush to the next task so we can check off those boxes, or stick to the routine so as not to rock the boat. Experimenting with alcohol inks commands me to be in the present moment and extinguish that voice as I respond and surrender to the viscous story unfolding in front of me. There is a natural, intuitive conversation that takes place between myself and the medium, as I explore feelings of liberation, transformative growth and taking chances.

PROCESS //
Alcohol Inks are a relatively new medium in the fine art world. The inks come in dropper bottles and are applied to a heat-resistant smooth surface. Varying amounts of rubbing alcohol are poured to dilute the pigment, and the flow of the ink is directed by a heat emboss tool that blows hot air. It is a bit of a science experiment depending on the order of application, the flow of the ink, and the direction and closeness of the hot air. The beauty of the finished product is the result of a give and take between artist and medium, where influence transcends control.

Hipstercrite names us one of “Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost An Arm And A Leg”

Hipstercrite, a.k.a. Lauren Modery, covers pop culture & lifestyle in the ATX

There’s a blogger in Austin you really should make it a point to read: Hipstercrite, created by the lovely  and talented 20-something writer / filmmaker / fashion & design maven Lauren Modery.

She’s a New York transplant by way of LA who wised up and made the move to Austin just in time to build an enthusiastic following for her lively, entertaining blog and be named Austin’s “Blogger of the Year” at the Austin Blogger Awards in 2010. Her work has been mentioned in Texas Monthly, Mental Floss, Mashable, HuffingtonPost, Houston Chronicle, Le Temps and Le Soir.  The short film she co-wrote and co-produced,  Loves Her Gunwon the Louis Black Lone Star award at SXSW 2013.

Creative and resourceful, she’s exactly the kind of person we want to have make our fair, weird city home.  So we urge you to read her work, hire her to write for you, support her film projects, and say howdy when you see her.

She recently named Hyde Park Bar & Grill, along with several of our long-time restaurant brethren in a list of  “Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost An Arm and a Leg.”   We are pleased and flattered and wanted to return the favor, hence this tip of our hat to you, Hipstercrite.  May Austin be the home that you want it to be!

 

 

 

BOTH: Austin Chronicle Names Hyde Park Bar & Grill “Best Comfort Cuisine 2013”

Hyde Park Bar and Grill with giant fork

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that we were not always a foodie town, that the current array of tastebud-boggling options was not always on our social menu. So it’s easy for old favorites to get lost in the din of dinnertime dilemmas. Strolling in and sitting down at one of Austin’s two Hyde Park Bar & Grills after not being there for a while and ordering one of their perfect meat-and-two-veg standards, like their pan-roasted chicken with green beans and mashers in a delicate tarragon jus, is much like that first holiday back home after being away at school: The experience is not just nourishing, it’s visceral, packed with mouthfeel memory and the revelation that while we may not have always been a foodie town, we’ve always had someone and somewhere saving us a seat at the table and pointing us in the right direction. — Austin Chronicle

Thank you.  We are so honored.  Come by & get comfortable.

CENTRAL: Best food neighborhood in Austin?

Best food neighborhood in Austin?

Hyde Park Bar and Grill Central on Duval

Our friend The Fork, adorned with a planet earth that now decorates the front of New World Deli!

Culture Map Austin wonders aloud whether the 42nd block of Duval in historic Hyde Park is “the best food neigborhood in Austin,” saying “this walkable restaurant row is a fun and quirky contender.”

(Spoiler alert) We couldn’t agree more.  We are proud to be in one of Austin’s most historic, and thoroughly walkable neighborhoods.

CENTRAL: Check out the new Shipe Park Pool Mural!

By | Central location, Community, Families | No Comments

Our neighbors in historic Hyde Park have outdone themselves once again.

As neighborhoods go, the one from which our restaurant takes its name is one of the most organized, active, passionate, inclusive, diverse, creative and resourceful communities in the city.

They banded together as a community, raised funds, got donations of time and talent, and created a beautiful mural at our beloved Shipe Pool!

Check it out and stop by the unveiling on Saturday to congratulate all concerned.

Congratulations to all involved!
