Top 5 stories this week: Politics, art and a side of dreamy bartenders

We've made it through another week, and another nail-biting election. With things settling down a bit (before they pick up with Formula 1 next week), it's time to revisit the most-read stories on CultureMap this week.

This week's top five stories offer equal parts politics and arts, with a side of dreamy bartenders that will usher you into a fine fall weekend.

  1. Though Texas votes red, President Obama carried the top four Texas cities this election: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin.
     
  2. Oasis' Noel Gallagher is back on the road finishing his tour in Texas. CultureMap chatted with the man behind "Wonderwall" about his resurgence, David Bowie and American politics (Fox News included).
     
  3. This weekend marks the return of the beloved East Austin Studio Tour (E.A.S.T.). Check out our guide for where to go, who to see and what to know.
     
  4. Back on the election thread, 7-11's Obama/Romney coffee cup sales accurately predicted the winner of the presidential election.
     
  5. Our list of the dreamiest bartenders in Austin might be just what you need to decide where to grab a weekend cocktail (or how to sharpen your pickup line prowess).

That's all for this week, Austin!
