See you there!

Patrizi’s Dinner Nights at the Vortex

6 p.m. Wednesday. Patrizi’s at the Vortex, 2307 Manor Road. Cost varies. www.facebook.com/events/710774982267943.

The Italian food trailer that has been serving dinner for Vortex theater-goers and others in East Austin is now offering a weekly Wednesday meal that won’t feature anything from the regular menu.

Romance...East Austin Style

February 2014



Right down the street is The Vortex, an Edgy and Quirky  theatre on the East Side.  The talented writers, actors, and actresses consistently bring productions to this intimate theatre which make audiences smile and laugh.  Their indoor theater is quaint and intimate, and they also have an outdoor stage for productions.

TIP:  Parking lot available.  Additional parking at Home Steam Cleaners and Clean Sweep after 7pm.



Inside the Vortex Theater is the Butterfly Bar, a casual East Austin hang out with an intimate bar and outside patio.  Almost nightly, the bar has an event or live music to enjoy while drinking local beer such as Independence Stash IPA, wine or specialty cocktails. 

TIPS:  Open daily from 5pm-midnight, 1am on Saturdays.



Parked behind The Vortex Theater is a family owned and operated Italian food truck, called Patrizi’s.  With over 50 years of experience, Nic Patrizi brings delicious Italian food to Austin. After a full night of fun, a late night snack of pasta, or dessert sounds like the perfect way to end a romantic evening…East Side style.

TIP: Open 7 days a week, with same hours as the bar.  Patrizi’s host a 2 or 4 course Prix Fixe dinner, community style including Feb 5, 12, 19 and 26.
