I stumbled across a nice Father’s Day gift idea for beer loving dads. In Austin, where we have an abundance of craft beer on tap and ready for drinking or to take home, a personalized growler is a great present! I love the look of this 64oz growler from Jackglass, where you can personalize the label with three lines of text. Check out their sugar skull etched pint glasses and Star Wars flasks, too. Deadline to order and receive items by Father’s Day is June 6, so get shopping. The bonus is the company is out of Houston. Go Texan! Y’all know I love keeping our dollars close to home, so if you want a cool looking growler sans engraving that you can pick up locally, I recommend this one at Austin Homebrew Supply.
Looking for a date night that will please your guy who eschews “frou frou” food but also satisfies your need for delicious food and ambiance? Grab your tix now for The Peached Tortilla’s Pop Up Dinner. Held on June 13 at The Sanctuary, this wine and food paired dinner will delight your senses, and satiate your cravings. This is the fourth pop up dinner in a series by The Peached Tortilla, all designed to showcase creative and delicious dishes that will ultimately end up on the menu at their brick & mortar, opening in the fall.
If you love cooking competition television shows but haven’t been to any of the ones held around town, do not hesitate to buy your ticket for the finals of Citywide 86’d. What began as a cooking competition between staff at Uchi has grown into a passionate contest of skill for chefs aspiring to win a coveted opportunity to stage at a highly respected restaurant, with airfare and accommodations provided by The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas. Meet the finalists, and find the link for tickets, here. I’ll be rooting for Lauren Ortiz from Uchi.
