Editor's note: Normally, I take this time to comment on the weather or the changing of the seasons or some city-wide event we're all about to embark on. But this week, I'd like to take the opportunity and ask ... have y'all seen Hamilton? It's good. Like really, really good. Like lives up to the hype and then some good. If you haven't scored seats yet, the $10 ticket lottery is still running every day (find out more information here). And if the opportunity comes your way — go!
1. Austin coffee shop needs help following late-night vandalism incident. Sa-Ten had a strange experience this week. During the daytime hours on May 27, a patron exhibited weird behavior, including trying to buy a banana with an arcade coin. After the cafe closed that night, video footage showed the same patron returning to the cafe, and the following morning, employees found letters from a sign removed and the breaker box cut — along with power to the refrigerators. The resulting loss was tough on the locally owned shop, so consider stopping by this weekend and buying a cup of coffee. Just make sure to bring real money.
