We made it to another holiday, Austin! Before you quietly duck out of the office early for the obligatory Labor Day happy hour, trip to the lake or college tailgate, take a look at our most-read stories of the week.

We talked fried food, we talked hipster soup, and we even talked "Sex in the Capital City" with a food metaphor.

Here are the week's Hot Clicks:

Hold on to your arteries! Big Tex is back with the 2012 Choice Fried Food Awards nominees. Yes, Chicken-Fried Cactus Bites made the cut. 

Campbell's has announced a new line of "hipster" soups inspired by the food truck scenes of Austin, Portland and San Francisco. Our favorite-sounding flavor? Chicken & Quinoa with Poblano Chiles.

What about that age-old double standard of "player vs. whore"? Mikela Floyd discusses giving away the milk — but not your dignity — in the latest installment of Sex and the Capital City.

We took a look inside legendary Hyde Park party house turned immaculate creative space. Step inside Red Fan Communications.

The Catholic Church's current stance on "radical feminism" (and Girl Scouts) has this Catholic praying for a schism.

Now that you're caught up on what happened this week, go enjoy a relaxing three-day weekend. We'll see you in September!
