    Contigo Catering: National Donut Day

    Yeah, if there's one thing that can turn us into a drool-flooded Homer Simpson, it's a well-made donut. And if there's one thing humans have created in the name of celebration or marketing or whatever, it's a specially designated day for everything, right? So here we are now, all Scylla and Charybdis between those two things – and so glad that the mighty Contigo Catering is planning to assuage our fried-dough jones with not one but three fresh toroids of confectionary pleasure from chef Aimee Gunter: a plain glazed, a dulce de leche cream-filled, and a candied mint mojito. Note: 1) This is a one-day morningtime pop-up only, and 2) boozy coffee and regular coffee will also be available for purchase when you drive or walk on through. Mmmmm … boozy coffee.

    Food News Buffet

    Yes, citizen, it is a bit like a deluge, now that you mention it. And we’ll see how all this revitalized dining-in plays out over the next couple of months (and the next few years). But, whoa, here comes everybody.: (And, to be sure, everybody’s still doing the curbside pickup and delivery thing; everybody’s “committed to following all state and CDC guidelines, including reduced capacity and distancing between guests,” masks when you’re not at-table, and so on. So, while you’re making your reservations online or by phone, maybe let that be a reassurance to your coronavirus-wary considerations?): Easy Tiger, that bread-forward bastion of relaxation, has reopened its big outdoor beer garden at the Linc – you can book tables for up to six at a time (daily, 9am-8pm) via Open Table – and their menu will have “all the fan favorites like pastrami, sausages, pastries, breads, and craft beer selections.”: Parkside Projects invites you to celebrate the reopening of Texas at their Tex-Mex venue Vamanos on Airport (Sun.-Thu., noon-8pm; Fri.-Sat., non-9pm), their Downtown point of pizza perfection called the Backspace (Mon.-Fri., 11:230-8pm; Sat., 3-8pm), and the Italian excellence of Olive & June (Wed.-Sat., 9-5pm).: The ELM Group informs us that 24 Diner is back in fine fettle (daily, 7am-11pm) and that their chef Andrew Curren will be staging summer cookouts in the Sixth + Lamar parking lot for Father’s Day and the Fourth of July. And that Austin’s beloved Irene’s is also open (Tue.-Sun., 11am-10pm) and the fabulous Drag Brunch will again be part of this city’s breakfast landscape.: P. Terry’s, the only burger place in town to get a thumbs-up from Eric “Fast Food Nation” Schlosser, has already reopened two of its locations (3303 N. Lamar; 13770 N. Hwy 183) and will open the remaining stores on June 8, all with hours of Mon.-Sun., 10am-10pm.: What other eateries are open for dining in? The Kamburis Brothers’ Satellite on West Slaughter; the highly strollable Jester King Brewery out in the Hill Country; the Eastside’s Kinda Tropical; Freebirds; Tarka Indian Kitchen; House Wine; Fogo de Chão. We told you about others earlier; we’ll tell you about more soon; and we’ll hope our favorite places make it safely through these various *fnord* phases of reopening.: – Wayne Alan Brenner
