VOX Table's New Direction
Things are getting a shake up at South Austin's VOX Table: JR Mocanu has ascended the position of beverage director after Travis Tober left in December to become the national brand ambassador for Aviation Gin. Meanwhile, bartender Madelyn Kay is making some waves of her own.

Drink Your Flowers
This week's feature traces the resurgence of edible flowers on Austin's menus, but local chefs aren't the only ones coming up roses. Barmasters all over town are playing with potable flowers, either as creative garnishes or intrinsic parts of the drinks themselves. Here are some of our favorites.

Get Ready for Texas Tiki Week
Listen, I’m not your father. Far be it for me to tell you how to live your life. But I will say you will be a terrible, awful, despicable no-goodnik if you don’t go to one of the Texas Tiki Week events next week. Remember Natalie Sands, the spoiled rotten villain of Girls Just Want to Have Fun? You’ll be her without the cool leotards.

Raise Your Glass to National Tequila Day
I’ll admit some misgiving about the ever-bulging slate of “holidays” devoted to food and drink. Just this week, I lost myself in the traditions of National Lollipop Day, National Penuche Fudge Day, and National Hot Dog Day. It's exhausting.

Cheers to Negroni Week
Even the most churlish among us sometimes gets the urge to splash around in the Fontana di Trevi. But since our travel budget is limited to weekends in Kyle, an ice cube splash in a cocktail usually has to do. This week, that weekly ritual could turn into a big payday for a local charity. Hold onto your Vespa, it’s Negroni Week.

The Secret to the Perfect Margarita
One of the grossest abominations of the bartenders’ art is the 16 ounce margarita. All over town, bars hoping to draw young customers barely old enough to get a legal drink offer gloppy, overly sweetened sugar bombs with barely a hint of true tequila, let alone triple sec or fresh lime juice.

First Look: The Wheel
The most distinguishing feature of new bar the Wheel may be the darkness. Dimly lit red candles barely illuminate the lacquered wooden tables and I can hear peoples’ conversations better than I can see their faces. I know I’ve stumbled into a good spot. After my eyes adjust to the dark, I can just make out the variety of bicycle themed artwork.

First Look: Stay Gold
The Austin bar scene has added names to its roll call at a dizzying pace in recent years. Drinking establishments have spilled into neighborhoods and found their ways into nooks and crannies, from old parking garages like Garage to even rooms within bars, like the hidden Vinyl within The Chicago House.
