This weekend marks the annual Austin Bat Festival and The 25th Annual Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival. Or you could sing "Pour Some Sugar On Me" along with Def Leppard at the 360 Amphitheater. The temperatures are supposed to be lower than average (not triple digits), so maybe this is the perfect August for festivals and concerts. Summer is still going strong, so we have to do our best to cope. This wonderful sipper from Odd Duck can help ease the heat. Beach, Please contains vodka, cilantro, lemon verbena, mango shrub and cava. Very smooth and refreshing, this sassy summer cocktail is well matched with any of Odd Duck's small plate offerings. Be aware, everything at Odd Duck is seasonal, so make a point to stop in soon before the whispers of a new season start to emerge and the drink menu changes.
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
