Austin's Best Food and Drink Events This Week

Dinner parties, farmer's markets, beer, wine, and more for the week of May 20, 2021

Thursday 20

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. Citywide. www.sustainablefoodcenter.org

HOPDODDY X CHI'LANTRO = KIMCHI BURGER "With admiration for each other’s culinary craft, Hopdoddy’s head chef Matt Schweitzer and Chi’Lantro founder Jae Kim have joined forces to deliver the familiar in an unfamiliar way: a Korean barbecue-inspired burger bursting with flavor and thoughtful ingenuity." Right, so that'll be the 'Doddy's signature Piedmontese beef patty topped with Chi’Lantro’s Korean barbecue-marinated Angus beef and caramelized kimchi, atop a layer of saucy slaw on those fresh-baked burger buns. (Note: Yes, citizen, we're already drooling, too.) And these meaty wonderments will be available at all Hopdoddy locations, starting on May 19. And know that the popular burger chain's got more collabs coming up, so prepare yourself for a tastier 2021 and we'll let you know what's up next ASAP. www.hopdoddy.com

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. redbeansaustin@gmail.com
