AUSTIN—No water for you, Austin (unless you specifically ask for it). Meanwhile, newest Austin food critic, Matthew Odam devises a new starless rating system for reviewing restaurants and Royers puts their Austin pie truck on hold. [EATX]

HOUSTON—Eater learns that a tweet can get you kicked out of a restaurant, sees rationality return to the situation and then finds that it doesn't stay around very long. On the other hand, Eater Houston readers are creating their own "38" lists in anticipation of Houston's inaugural Eater 38.

STATEWIDE—Drought, drought, more drought. When will it end and when exactly will prices rise because of it?
