FAR NORTH — Ramen Tatsu-Ya celebrates their second anniversary on Tuesday, September 2 from 5-10 p.m. Customers will receive one free drink (a sake cocktail or agua fresca), and anyone wearing a Tatsu-Ya shirt gets 30% off. There will also be DJ sets from chefs Tatsu and Tako. [Eaterwire]

CHERRYWOOD — In response to the ubiquitous ice bucket challenge, journalist (and Eater Austin editor emeritus) Andrea Grimes created the "Taco or Beer Challenge." Basically, eat a taco and/or drink a beer, and then donate to an abortion fund. The challenge has gone viral; the real-life Austin challenge goes down at Mi Madre's tomorrow from 1-4 p.m. [Eaterwire]

WHOMP WHOMPLa Barbecue is very sorry. They tweet: "A sincere apology to anyone in line who did not get BBQ today. The "end of the line guy" passed the sign back and it kept going back." [Twitter]
