News broke a few months back that the Weather Up kids would open their latest outpost in Austin. Now Matthew Maddy tells us the place is about two to three months out*: “We’re gonna miss SXSW, but we’ll have it soon thereafter.” Maddy is down south building the bar now and says the look will be similar to the other Weather Ups, only Austin has the benefit of a large outdoor space. The designer and his business partner Kathryn Weatherup (who moved to Austin recently) are teaming up with a local food person to do the eats, but details on that are still t.b.d. Meanwhile, this isn’t Maddy’s only project in the works: He confirmed that he’s planning a new restaurant-bar for 135 Graham Avenue, in Williamsburg; that one’s about six months out, and the concept is still in the works.

*This post originally stated that Weather Up Austin would open in two to three weeks; we misread our notes: it’s actually two to three months out.
