    Anythings Baked Potato: First Anniversary Week

    Mmmm, yeah – it's been a solid (although, now, increasingly weird) year for this bastion of spud-based, flavor-forward goodness, and they're celebrating with a bounty of specials and music and, oh, you know: It's a weeklong anniversary party! There's an R&B Night with a live DJ and hookahs (Thu., Aug. 20, 7pm-12mid), and an All White Party – come dressed in your showiest snow-colored gladrags – with live music and prizes (Sat., Aug. 22, 3pm-12mid), and we reckon there's even more to come.

    Milam & Greene: Straight Bourbon Whiskey Pickup Party

    Out there at the Milam & Green Distillery in Blanco, they're celebrating the company's first Distillery Edition Straight Bourbon Whiskey. (This fierce but smooth new spirit was pot-distilled in a 300-gallon copper still, non-chill filtered, and bottled at barrel proof. Note: Only 1,430 bottles were made.) Head on out there today and buy a bottle signed by the people who created it – and you'll get some free samples of Milam & Greene's new cocktail syrups along with it. Also, you can go all exploratory with this refreshing excursion via M&G's “Follow Your Spirit Blanco Tour,” an interactive self-guided tour of the town.

    Food Access Resources from SFC

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.

    Red Beans and Ricely Yours, Austin

    This community initiative, headed by Chris Cubas and Maris Clegg, is dedicated to providing free meals (of red beans and rice, andouille sausage, cornbread, fruit, dessert, and a drink) to Austinites in need. "On Tuesdays, we will provide a link to sign up for a free home-made meal delivered to you with safety in mind," goes their announcement on Facebook. "There is no judgment and the form is anonymous. If you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a hard time, we would like to make a small portion of your day a little bit better." Or, if you'd like to donate your time in driving, baking treats, or providing cases of non-alcoholic beverages, please reach out to redbeansaustin@gmail.com.

    The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival

    Of course the festival's still on! You didn't think we'd let some paltry, world-changing pandemic get in the way of our 30th year of celebrating local expressions of deliciously edible heat and supporting the Central Texas Food Bank, did you? Because, what do they say? "Now, more than ever," right? That's so true – and so your Chronicle is hosting a virtual event featuring winner announcements for commercial bottler categories, music, videos, and more. To experience this at home, you can purchase your very own Hot Sauce Tasting Kits – which include samplings from a variety of local bottlers and all-new Hot Sauce Festival merch – and generally prepare to let your capsaicin-loving freak flags fly.
    Sun., Aug. 30, 1pm. Donations to Central Texas Food Bank heartily encouraged.
