Central Market South

4477 S. Lamar, 512/899-4300
Established in 1999, Central Market’s second homegrown location absorbed a bit of the South Austin funkiness its location would call for. An even more eclectic calendar than its elder sibling ’s encompasses everything from Western swing and bluegrass to jazz, Latin rock, and whatever it is White Ghost Shivers make so much fun. With that much music, it’s no wonder CM South features live music four days a week, all at no charge.

AJW Youth Jam at Central Market

Here in the Live Music Capital of the World, there should be no shortage of opportunities for kids to develop their tuneful talents and pursue rockstar dreams. Austin Jazz Workshop’s jam series is one of these opportunities, with twice-monthly jams led by Gil Del Bosque just for middle- and high school students to get a feel for a real gig setting. Thanks to a financial boost from the city’s Cultural Arts Division, jams are scheduled through August: first Sundays at Batch, last Sundays at Central Market South, both at noon. – Kat McNevins Last Sundays, noon.

Guantanamera Cuban Cuisine

Armed with a wealth of cherished family recipes for fresh, home-style Cuban cuisine, the menu's opening salvo may be Masas fritas, or chunks of mojo criollo-marinated pork fried in lard, golden outside and succulent within. Lechon asado gets the same marinade and hours in a slow oven until it gets so tender it melts in your mouth. Pollo al horno is a marinated chicken leg quarter that is roasted with onion and red bell peppers, turning it moist and juicy.

Texadelphia

This Union version of the popular Drag-Kingdom of the Cheesesteak (and non-chain!) opened up last year to great rejoicing. Also serves a decent selection of beer for the somewhat sparse over-21 bowling and pool patrons.
