We dashed into the Wet Whistle at the corner of Chicon and MLK in East Austin yesterday to take a couple pictures and see how the build-out looks. It’s gorgeous, unlike your typical quick mart with beautiful shelving and lots of punk rock poster art covering the walls.

Debra McAdoo of D. Sweetpea’s Floral Design was in the house, sipping on an ice cold homemade hibiscus tea after delivering the day’s fresh flowers.

It’s great to see another homegrown business spring up in the historic Blackland neighborhood. These nice folks are going to see plenty of our beer and pork skin money. But if you need fresh produce and baked goods they’ve got that covered too. Can’t wait til they swing their mini farmer’s market into motion.
