Roaring Fork: Burgers, Brunch, and More in Austin

August 26, 2014 2:40 pm

The Roaring Fork was created with the idea of old-fashioned American cuisine in mind, cooked over an open fire and bursting with bold, smoky flavor. Each dish is cooked over a wood fire rotisserie to capture this essence, and you’ll even find it in the restaurant’s aesthetic. From the hardwood floors and cozy booths to the sleek, modern light fixtures, every part of the Roaring Fork’s dining room combines elegance and rustic charm.

Regulars rave about meat creations like the stacked-high burgers, roasted chicken, and bacon wrapped tenderloin, while sides like fried avocado are the perfect accompaniments. The handcrafted cocktails and happy hour specials are a delight to of-age guests, and the Roaring Fork also boasts a hearty Sunday brunch that’s been touted as one of the best in the area.

The Roaring Fork is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Happy hour starts at 4 p.m.

3 Health Benefits of Sunscreen

August 22, 2014 12:01 pm

Sunscreen protects your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays, but did you know that sunscreen also has a number of other positive effects on your health? Here are just three of the most beneficial qualities of wearing sunscreen.

  1. It prevents the appearance of aging. In addition to protecting you from sunburn, sunscreen prevents against the brown spots and discoloration that form on your face as you age. Without those dangerous UV rays, your skin also forms wrinkles and red veins much less quickly.
  2. It protects against cancer. Most people know that sunscreen prevents sunburn, but this protection lessens your risk of developing skin cancer, as well. Every sunburn that you sustain throughout your life increases your risk for melanoma, so it’s important to wear sunscreen every time you’re in the sun.
  3. It provides extra protection for those who take medications. Many medications make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so if you take a regular prescription, it’s especially important to apply sunscreen. These types of medications include anti-inflammatory, acne, or cardiovascular medicines, but it’s not limited to just these drugs. Be sure to read the label on any prescription that you begin taking, and ask your doctor or dermatologist for more information.
