5 eats, treats and shops coming to Domain Northside


North Austin is continuing to beef up its presence as a “second downtown” with five new additions coming to Domain Northside.

Located across the street from The Domain, the new shopping and dining destinations will be nestled by the bustling shopping center and the Rock Rose Nightlife District.

The new additions include:

  • Curry Up Now, an “approachable” take on Indian street food and traditional dishes.
  • Joybird, a handcrafted furniture store focused on mid-century modern inspired items.
  • Popular Austin hangout Easy Tiger, which will feature a new Pretzel Bar at this location.
  • Rothy’s, a sustainable fashion brand that transforms plastic bottles into shoes, bags accessories and more.
  • gorjana, a husband-and-wife created fine jewelry brand.

All but gorjana are now open, with the jewelry brand set to open its doors this fall.

“We are thrilled about the latest additions to our tenant mix,” Northwood Retail senior marketing director Alison Goodman said.. “Domain NORTHSIDE’s growth has brought a unique retail, dining and entertainment experience to the city of Austin and these new businesses further our mission to provide a lively and dynamic space for our guests.”

With deposition and trial looming, Elon Musk has offered $44B for Twitter, again

Elon Musk has proposed once again to buy Twitter for $54.20 a share.

The news that Musk is offering to carry on with the $44 billion buyout was first reported by Bloomberg. Now, a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission shows Musk made the proposal in a letter to the tech giant on Monday.

The New York Stock Exchange temporarily halted trading in Twitter stock twice Tuesday, first because of a big price move and the second time for a news event, presumably the announcement of Musk's renewed offer.

While the per share offer price on this latest proposal remains the same as the original offer, it’s unclear if Musk has made other term changes or if Twitter would reject it. According to other reports, a deal could be reached this week.

The stock closed at $52.00/share Tuesday, indicating market uncertainty around the $54.20 offer.

After Musk informed Twitter of plans to terminate the original agreement in July, Twitter sued. A trial has been expected in Delaware Chancery Court on Oct. 17.

With the proposition of a buyout on the table again, it revives the question of whether Musk might move Twitter from San Francisco to Central Texas.

He’s done so with some of his other companies. Tesla’s headquarters in southeast Travis County had its grand opening earlier this year and tunneling business The Boring Company moved to Pflugerville. At least two other Musk companies, SpaceX and Neuralink, have a Central Texas presence without being headquartered here.

Technology journalist Nilay Patel this afternoon voiced concerns that owning Twitter and Tesla together could be problematic for Musk, as his Tesla manufacturing facilities in Germany and China are both in countries that have disputes with Twitter over content moderation and censorship.

Telsa shares fell after the Twitter news became public, before rallying to close up, at $249.44.
