What's New?

TRIBEZA checks in with some of our favorite subjects from December People Issues of years past.

Addie Broyles | Food Writer, The Austin American Statesman

Featured: 10 to watch, TRIBEZA’s December 2009 issue

What are you working on right now?

We’re gearing up for our holiday food sections, which are the biggest of the year. From the sweets and treats of Halloween through the rejuvenating-yourself-through-food stories of the New Year, it’s a busy (and exciting) time of year. I’ve also started treating the Feminist Kitchen book club like a college class, so we’re in the middle of our fall syllabus, talking about subjects like Sylvia Plath and Lucky Peach magazine.

What was your career highlight of 2013?

Publishing the Austin Food Blogger Alliance Cookbook was easily a high point not just of the year, but of my career. As I started learning more about the history of community cookbooks, I realized that our project tapped into my loves of food, storytelling, feminism, genealogy, and community-building. It’s such an honor to carry on this longstanding tradition of compiling recipes and stories and bring it into the 21st Century!

What’s been your favorite new thing in Austin this year?

My backyard garden! We took a break for a few years to try our hand at chickens, but the clucking and pooping got out of control, so we’re back to regular old vegetable gardening. Outside my home, I’m excited about all the new food gems near my house: Barlata, the Austin Beer Garden Brewery Company, Trader Joe’s, and Wheatsville South.

Bobby Bones | Host, "The Bobby Bones Show"

Featured: Cover of TRIBEZA’s December 2011 issue

What are you working on right now?

It’s been a big year—hosting “The Bobby Bones Show” (heard in over 60 cities every weekday from Nashville), host of “Country Top 30” with Bobby Bones (a weekend national countdown heard in over 150 cities), host of “The Bobby Bones Sports Show” on Fox Sports Radio (heard in 200+ cities), and an acting gig on ABC’s Nashville. I am currently working on a pilot for a new talk show in 2014.

What was your career highlight of 2013?

Watching the radio show grow to one of the biggest in the United States… And, we spent 2013 as the number one show in Austin for the eighth year in a row. I hated moving from Austin full-time, but Nashville is also great. I still live part-time in Austin as well; I never plan to really leave.

What’s been your favorite new thing in Austin this year?

Extending the Austin City Limits Music Festival to two weekends: It was easier to get all my friends (who constantly hit me up) free tickets. I am also loving the progress of the Andy Roddick Youth Center in Austin…it is going to bring great things for the youth of Central Texas.

Jeff Nichols | Director, Mud, Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter

Featured: 10 to Watch, TRIBEZA’s December 2009 issue

What are you working on right now?

Midnight Special. It's a new film I'm making with Warner Bros., [which] I wrote and will be directing. We begin filming in January, [and] locations will range from West Texas to the panhandle of Florida. It's being described as a present day, sci-fi chase film.

What was your career highlight of 2013?

The response to Mud—I've really been blown away by the reactions I've received. The fact that it is considered a financial and critical success is very gratifying to me, but mostly I love hearing people talk about the film. Good or bad, it's just cool to have made something that people got a chance to see.

What’s been your favorite new thing in Austin this year?

This may just be new to us, but in.gredients on Manor. It's become our neighborhood hang-out. Great people and a great idea for a store/gathering place.

Pamela Colloff | Executive Editor, Texas Monthly

Featured: People of the Year, TRIBEZA’s December 2010 issue

What are you working on right now?

A story about a prosecutor who is having second thoughts about having sent a 17-year-old away to prison for life many years ago. Both he and the inmate are talking to me, and it’s a fascinating story, so I’m very excited about it.

What was your career highlight of 2013?

Winning a National Magazine Award for feature writing. But a close second was an evening I spent with death row exoneree Anthony Graves, who I’ve written about before, and his attorney, Nicole Casarez, shortly before the third anniversary of Anthony’s release. It was such a happy night.

What’s been your favorite new thing in Austin this year?

My friend Travis Kizer’s coffee shop/craft beer/barbecue joint, the Buzz Mill. Travis roasts the coffee beans himself, and I think he has the best coffee in town.

Hundreds of people are moving to Austin each day, and downtown is one of the major hubs of growth for the city. Local real estate expert Jude Galligan discusses smart urban growth and what to expect this year as the skyline continues to evolve.

Your blog keeps Austin updated on the latest news in downtown. What is the most exciting development happening right now?

From my point of view, the most exciting development is the Waller Creek District Master Plan. Decades in the making, this transformative project came to life after designers competed for the contract. It is finally coming to downtown, bringing an imaginative chain of parks,...


As you flip through the pages of our February Love Issue, one thing you’ll notice is the beautiful blooms that pop up throughout the magazine. We got some major googly eyes for the bouquets featured in our "Real Weddings" features, and earmarked the TRIBEZA Wedding Guide for even more Pinterest-worthy petals.

Instead of letting all that inspiration go to waste, we tried our hand at flower arranging to see what we could create. Since we consider ourselves floral design novices, we asked a few top designers...
