Productivity on the day to day running of this site is bound to taper off as I’m currently penning 2 chapters per week on my coming treatise on Texas barbecue.
This is going to involve quite a bit of travel around Central Texas as I uncover and revisit 50 barbecue restaurants in the next few months. It’s exciting but also exhausting.
Without further ado. Here are the top 5 articles we posted this week. As always determined by page views. 1] The doyenne of New York City’s craft cocktail scene; Kathryn Weatherup, is preparing to open a branch of her Weatherup bars in the former Azul building on Cesar Chavez http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/1/21/Austin-Daily-Photo-Kathryn-Weatherup-Prepares-To-Bring-New-York-Bar-Style-To-Old-Azul-Space
