Spotted: Elon Musk, Joe Rogan and Dave Chappelle walk into Stubb's BBQ

Turns out, celebrities enjoy Stubb's BBQ just as much as the rest of Austin. Recent Texas transplants Joe Rogan and Elon Musk were spotted along with Dave Chappelle and other celebrities at the popular Texas venue for a night on the town.


To prove it, Rogan posted a photo of himself surrounded by a VIP entourage: comedians Michelle Wolf, Donnell Rawlings, Mohammed Amer and Ron White; musician and Musk's partner Grimes, Austin restaurateur CK Chin and photographer Mathieu Bitton.

It is unclear when the pictures were taken since most of the group posted the photo yesterday, though Rawlings made his post three days ago. However, Rogan and Chappelle's last show at the venue was on Friday. The photos were taken at Stubb's backstage, according to White's post.

This is not the first time Rogan, Chappelle and Musk have been seen together. Rogan and Chappelle have teamed up for several joint comedy shows, first at Big Laugh Comedy in November, then at a series of shows for Stubb's.

Musk has famously appeared on Rogan's podcast on more than one occasion. The Tesla CEO can be expected around Austin more as his newest Gigafactory in Southeast Travis County comes to life.

Safe to say, this probably won't be the last time we see the group together.

A mortgage banker walks us through the math on purchasing a 'mid-price' Austin home

So you want to buy a house?

To anyone trying to get on the "housing ladder," it's been a discouraging couple of years as prices skyrocketed in a market crowded with buyers bidding against each other for just about any available home.

Things may be calming down, with the Austin Board of REALTORS reporting fewer sales and more available homes this summer.

Mortgage rates have more than doubled in the last year, from around 3% to well over 6% on a 30-year fixed rate loan, getting even more of a bump this week after the Federal Reserve raised bank rates on Wednesday.

So how affordable are homes right now? That, of course, depends on what you want and how much you're able or willing to pay, but here are some rough estimates of what a typical buyer would pay to buy a $650,000 home, which would be considered "mid-price" in today's market.

Mortgage banker Chris Holland (NMLS 211033) of Austin's Sente Mortgage ran some numbers for Austonia to illustrate a typical purchase.
