Good festival weekend to you, Austin! Before you unplug for three days of music at Zilker Park, take a moment to join us in a recap of CultureMap's hottest stories of the week.

This edition of Hot Clicks is all about change. From the future of Austin's favorite dirt lot and Waller Creek, to new hot spots in the music and food scenes, we've got the latest news on the changing landscape of our fine city.

We still marvel that a dirt lot on Austin's most famous street has become a world-renowned tourist destination. But with new ownership, what is the future of the South Congress trailer park?

This weekend, the Red River music district welcomes a new kid to the block. Holy Mountain opens in the iconic Beauty Bar space — check out CultureMap's sneak peek inside.

What will Waller Creek look like? CultureMap explores the top five design elements from each of the finalists and asks you to pick your plan.

Chef Jason Dodge, formerly of Peche, opens new Italian spot Cherry Street with a menu influenced by his rustic summer trek through the Italian countryside.

Just around the corner, the Austin Film Festival promises movie fans an impressive list of on-screen appearances, from Bill Murray to Denzel Washington.

That's it for this week's Hot Clicks. Now go, have the best weekend ever.
