    Treaty Oak Distilling: Smoke & Mash BBQ Celebration

    Just down the road a piece, at the start of the Texas Hill Country, sits a gorgeous spread of reclaimed ranchland on which Daniel Barnes and his meticulous associates craft up several of the finest tipples available in our crazy-ass world: Bourbon, rye whiskey, gin, even (shhh) some wine.Maybe you've visited this little patch of paradise already? And maybe you've understandably become addicted to the grainy goodness that flows from Barton Springs Mill on the same property? Well, this Memorial Day weekend's a good time to return: Saturday's Smoke & Mash is an all-day barbecue expo with offerings from the professionals at Alice’s Restaurant, World Barbecue Champion pitmaster Tuffy Stone, third-generation barbecuer Sam Jones, and award-winning pitmaster Moe Cason. (Guests can purchase $5 tickets, each of which can be exchanged for a small barbecue plate from any of the vendors.)You want, what, more than just perfect barbecue in a pastoral outdoor setting? Of course there'll be live music – the Hot Texas Swing Band, Night Cap, and Deezie Brown – but, check this out, Austin Speed Shop's presenting a car show (starting at 2pm) and Treaty Oak will release their new Red, White & Blue single barrel whiskey at this celebration. (Note: There's only 210 bottles to this expression, sold exclusively at the distillery while supplies last.) And this whole thing serves as a benefit for the Southern Smoke Foundation and Tate Farms, too.Reservations? Nah, hoss, just show up and be ready for a real good time.

    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.
