    Wastin' Away National Margarita Day

    What do Jimmy Buffett and High 5 have in common? Back in 1976, Buffett tasted his first margarita at a Mexican restaurant called Lung's Cocina del Sur, inspiring the song "Margaritaville." Lung's closed and became Fuddrucker's, which then became the Goodnight, and now High 5 is the proud home of this music history site. So it's the perfect spot for High 5 and The Austin Chronicle's National Margarita Day party, featuring the Texas Tide Jimmy Buffett tribute band (2-5pm), El Paraiso Burger, giveaways, and of course, delicious margaritas!

    Desert Door Sotol x Texas Bees

    Ah, who wouldn't want to take a post-snowpocalypse drive out to Driftwood, to the Desert Door distillery and tasting room, where the acclaimed sotol-mongers are celebrating the Texas honey bee population by offering a special cocktail featuring wild-harvested, West Texas honey? That's a rhetorical question, but we'll guess the answer is "I want to take that drive!" Especially when you know that proceeds from every Rugged Flower cocktail sold will go directly toward adding more bee hives to the ranch, thus increasing the area’s biodiversity.

    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.
