Best Hardware Store: Breed & Co.

You may see the familiar denizens of Breed & Co. donning new red vests, marking the transition to a new "family of retailers," but fret not! The relationship between our beloved local Breed and national chain Ace Hardware is cooperative, not top-down corporate. Ace is their new primary hardware supplier. The things we love about Breed & Co. are still there. Human-scaled and humble is how we like our hardware stores, and Breed & Co. still has that in spades.

Best Kiducational Day Trip: Waco Mammoth Site

What better way to excite junior paleontologists than to let them see real animal fossils where they have laid for 65,000 years? Discovered in the bank of Waco's Bosque River in 1978 by two young men, the bones of 23 Columbian mammoths, a camel, and a saber-tooth tiger were uncovered and added to the National Park System as a National Monument in July, 2015.

Best Dalí- or Gaudí-Inspired Bus Stop: Bus Stop at Manor & Rogge

Let's face it: Bus stops are generally hard, sleek, modern, and utilitarian. They may reflect a certain industrial aesthetic, but they are hardly media for artistic expression. A project of Green Doors, Stanley Studio architects, and JQ+Tsen structural engineers, the stop at the northeastern corner of Manor at Rogge bears a beautiful exception, surrealistic with a Southwestern touch. Picture some madman taking the same basic design as many of the more recent Capital Metro stops, such as the one in front of the Central Library branch Downtown, putting Silly Putty on it as if it were a Sunday comic strip, doing the requisite bending/warping/reshaping ... then planting a cactus garden on the roof. Subversive, yet functional – this is great.

Best New Draught Beer: Hops & Grain's A Pale Mosaic

It's not surprising that Hops & Grain's first year-round draught-only beer is a delight. A Pale Mosaic (available soon in cans) has an aroma, flavor profile, and body that is appropriate for any occasion. As nose inches closer to pint glass, nostrils tingle with the faint aroma of pine. The beer has a pale copper hue, a cloudy appearance, and medium body. The first cold sips are crisp, and the Mosaic hop really shines with pine resin and grapefruit pith flavors tingling the palate. These earthy and light, fruity flavors are backed up with a moderate hoppiness, yet nothing near as bitter as your average IPA. Finally, there's nothing like a smooth finish. Its subtle character gives the beer its versatility when it comes to pairings, the season, and the person. Cheers!
