In keeping with the modern state of foodways in East Austin, the renaissance of long running curb store Quickie Pickie will feature local foods in the cafe, local beers on the tap wall and perhaps an aviary off to one side featuring only the finest local chickens?
A month or so ago we were motoring toward Rosewood Avenue when we spotted a gang of construction workers descending on the corner of East 11th and Lydia. Always curious, we popped into the old time quick mart to see what was going on with the hubbub.
The Prague Spring-like renaissance of East Austin continues apace with bona fide craft coffee superstar Cuvée opening for business this morning at Salt And Time Butcher Shop.
We ran by for a moment at lunch to take a couple photos and get the lay of the land. More details to come as we are under a major time crunch due to the pop up event this weekend.
Back at it.
Salt and Time Butchershop and Salumeria is doing business the right way.
Ancient curing methods are being honored; old school meat-aging techniques are being employed, and a reverence for tradition permeates their spanking-new East 7th street meat house.
Sunday afternoon, owner Ben Runkle peeled himself away from the crowds herded into the shop, for a few minutes to discuss his new business. Our talk ranged broadly as a steady line of people moved through the salumeria, eager to mow down on thick steaks, big bottles of Jester King beer and cases packed with both fresh, and salt-cured meats.
For the hard partying school girls at the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders life is about to get a lot easier. Wheatsville Co-op will be selling beer and wine at their new S. Lamar Boulevard location, opening in June 2013.
The Austin City Council recently voted unanimously in favor of the alcohol sales waiver that the hippies running the joint had been fight tooth and nail for.
Expect backpacks to be filled with Lagunitas starting in June for the poor young gals stuck in summer school.
Big news breaking out of South Austin. The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co has secured the location of their brew house; it's to be located at 1305 West Oltorf near the intersection of Lamar Blvd.
Here's what's coming:
10 taps, all in-house brewed beers
Pizza, thin crust, New York-style
We had a great time at the friends and family, soft opening at Freedmen's in West Campus last night. No matter that we are neither, there were plenty folks who were none the wiser.
Freedmen's is a barbecue restaurant and craft cocktail bar. Let's hope University Texas students are thirsty for well made pre and post-prohibition cocktails as that is the slant of the drinkery part of the establishment.
