    Eden West: Mother's Day in the Hill Country

    Eden West, that outpost of extraordinary cuisine from Sonya Cote and company, invites you to stop by Driftwood's sotol-celebrating Desert Door Distillery to partake of a fine brunch this day. Pro tip: The huevos rancheros and brunch tacos go perfectly with a sotol Paloma cocktail … and few things go better with mom, we reckon, than a Hill Country Sunday.

    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.
