    Cover 2: Crawfish Wednesdays

    So, a mudbug walks into a sports bar … and it's doomed to be devoured, if it's Wednesday and the bar is this popular place. The Cajun-inspired crew at Cover 2 is cooking up the crawdads every humpday and selling them by the pound, straight up or doused with hot sauce, to accompany your game-watching, trash-talking, beer-fueled camaraderie.
    Wednesdays, 11am-10pm (or until they run out)

    Craftsman: Mardi Gras Takeover

    The lively East Austin drinkery unveils an amazing Mardi Gras pop-up experience featuring a delicious array of their favorite New Orleans-inspired cocktails and food, with the whole joint decorated to make guests feel like they've been transported to the middle of the French Quarter.

    Note: A recent preview reveals that, instead of just throwing some basic N'awlins-sparked flair at the bar, the Craftsman crew has researched that storied city's mixological history from 1800 onward … and used their intel to conjure freshly brilliant examples of vintage cocktails. We'll go out on a bead-draped limb here and suggest that you might never find a better Sazerac for years, for instance. But we'll also insist that we'd rather spend all night tossing back sugar-rimed coupes of that 1850-specific Brandy Crusta. Between bites of the special menu's succulent shrimp po'boy, to be sure. We mean: Laissez les bons temps rouler, baby!

    Through March 5
