"...Worth. [image-3] If you don't have time for a scavenger hunt, you can still assemble a beer pairing basket from Antonelli's Cheese Shop (4220 Duval St.). Kara Chadbourne, cheesemonger, recommends these for the craft beer enthusiast on your list: • Blue Heron Bourbon Cajeta, a caramel made from Nubian goat's milk with Maker's Mark for a deep, heady sweetness • Rolf Beeler Gruyere is a ruinously buttery Swiss gruyere, as in its nutty, beefy, toasty aromas will ruin you for all other gruyeres..."
"...Toby, along with Jack Gilmore, Tom Kamm, and chef Chris Ten Eyck, hand-selects every one of the candidates at each distiller's headquarters across the country, which is a rare journey. They were only the second in Texas – after the Dallas Cowboys and before Alamo Drafthouse – to offer a Maker's Mark Private Select bourbon...."
"... (ps.... a little birdy told me that if you get there early, like 8pm, there may be free Miller Light and free Maker's Mark)...."
"...Elevator doors opened to a large, intimately lit dining room, and the host directed us to the Writer's Lounge, a cozy space of dark leather and brass horn-section lighting fixtures. We picked a corner overlooking Downtown's iconic Frost Tower and ordered two hot toddies (Maker's Mark and a clove-studded orange peel came standard)..."
"...Cyclecide showed up in full force with its rides Flight of the Bumblebee and Axegrinder, a tower with six guitars at the top that could be rotated and played by riding a bike attached to a gear system. Austin Bike Zoo brought its Rattlesnake, a massive, skeletal creation that slithered through the fair as people rode the bikes built into its frame, and Mark Perez's life-sized Mouse Trap drew crowds with its grandeur and vaudeville flair..."
"...Did you know that Mark Mothersbaugh used to be in this band called Devo?..."
"...And she had the Danspace Project, an organization that supports the work of independent experimental choreographers, agree to produce its premiere at St. Marks Church in New York City in February 2004..."
"...Bringing the total to over 1,100 acts prepping for SXSW, lineup drop seven pushes past the halfway mark of the fest’s sprawling lineup. Beloved local rock troupe White Denim airs new tracks March 11-17, and joins cosmic jazz-funk cult Golden Dawn Arkestra and Dripping Springs psych-Americana maker Israel Nash...."
"...Seriously. When he's not wrestling, he's a stock market analyst and senior vice-president of an investment group) in main event contention, there could be a lot of the Lone Star Loudmouth next Monday..."
"...Even a triptych of new tunes from October’s Melody Road (“Nothing But a Heartache,” “In Better Days,” “The Art of Love”) found their mark – and without old-school hooks. Those arrived in a barrage next to close out the main, 90-minute set: “Forever in Blue Jeans,” “Cherry, Cherry,” “I Am I Said.” A sea of cell phones lit “Holly Holy.”..."
"...Another panel, "Maker Culture & Digital Marketing," suggests that DIY has already shifted the economy. It's in the way that consumers can interact with brands, sharing a virtual, personalized Coke or mapping a theoretical route for the Nissan Rogue..."
"...But I have quite consciously, in all three cases, shooed offers to pursue certain modes of magic that each of them were practicing. Why film attracts magicians in a certain way has intrinsically to do with the light, because for me every mark that is put on film, which is particularly relevant when you're painting, is a diminishment of the light..."
"...Cardinals (3-6) @ 49ers (7-1) 49ers RB Frank Gore is still a question mark for Sunday, but my sources from practice say they believe he will go. I can see this situation unfolding like Week 4 at Philly when backup RB Kendall Hunter was named the starter and then Gore went off for 127 and a TD after being benched by panicky owners..."
"...Graeber describes Powerhouse as a service company, a subcontractor on bigger projects. Most of their work is in the gaming industry, and it's that for which they're most famous, with their digital pencil marks on properties as diverse as Triple-A console titles like Mortal Kombat X, Austin-produced, turn-based strategy epic The Banner Saga, and WWE's tablet smasher Immortals..."
"...photograph by John Anderson In cooler climes, where the onset of fall and winter means the changing of colors, the donning of sweaters, and the lighting of chimney fires, another seasonal rite of passage exists -- the transition from light, summery meals to dishes blanketed in warm sauces. Fall and winter mark the return of sinful splashes of cream, luscious layers of cheese, and hearty vegetable purées..."
"...Normally at this time of year, the Edwards Aquifer stands at about 660 feet above sea level, as measured at a benchmark well known as J-17. But last week, the level in J-17 was at 631 feet..."
"...As Houston’s Karbach Brewing enters the Austin market today, Craft Pride will host the first in a series of local events for the brewery scheduled throughout the week...."
"...AWFA's grant program is the first in the nation to provide support for culinary innovation and community value on the part of chefs and restaurateurs, farmers and ranchers, food artisans, winemakers, brewers, and distillers, as well a culinary schools and food-focused non-profits. The new non-profit received 30 grant applications in the fall and was able to double its original grant funding projections to a total of $20,000 through community partnerships with Whole Foods Markets, Maker's Mark Bourbon, FreshPoint Produce, and the CultureMap Tastemaker Awards plus the great success of two large fundraising events, Live Fire! at the Salt Lick Pavilion and Wine & Swine at Pioneer Farms..."
