    Austin Eastciders: Valentine's Picnic

    How about a whole picnic set-up to supercharge your Valentine's weekend interlude with, you romantic, outdoorsy fool? The folks at the Eastciders restaurant on Barton Springs have got it ready for you, featuring herb-encrusted cider-brined chicken, a pint of pickled potato salad, crispy cabbage salad (so fresh with, mmmmm, that Golden Apple Ponzu dressing), and a Whoopie cake (with its moist double chocolate, condensed milk, crushed toffee, and whipped brown sugar). Oh, and? Because this is from those gurus of apple-based adult beverages? A six-pack of cider of your choice – and you can mix-n-match flavors, even. And all of this ($50) will be packed in a souvenir Austin Eastciders tote bag for you to grab and go. Reckon this sweet deal's romantic to the core, alright.

    Eberly x Prohibition Creamery

    The Eberly chef team of Jo Chan and Sarah Seghi are giving Austinites one more chance to enjoy the recently shuttered Prohibition Creamery by inviting chef Laura Aidan to partner with them to create a special boozy, ice cream dessert flight ($16) during Valentine's Week. The flight's enough for two and features three different desserts served side by side – with components a specific cocktail would have, but conjured in dessert form. How about a bourbon pecan praline for you, liquor-lover? Some Earl Grey Mandarin Napolean ice cream? Prickly pear mezcal sorbet? Ahhhhh, it's so good we can't even.
