Tuesday is Groundhog Day, and there is the worry that we might get six more weeks of winter. Austin has had a very mild winter so far, but you might have a case of the winter blues nonetheless. Here's a cure--pop into VOX Table in Lamar Union and try something from their new cocktail menu created by their newly promoted beverage director, JR Mocanu. I tried #delicious last weekend before catching a movie at the neighboring Alamo Drafthouse. The drink is a blend of Hendrick's Gin with a hibiscus-Chenin Blanc syrup. The result is a balanced, sweet yet herbaceous cocktail that is very sippable. The pretty color comes from the hibiscus and it's garnished with a lovely flower, a reminder that spring is not far away. Bar hours are Thursday-Friday, 5:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m.; Saturday, 11:00 a.m.-1:00 a.m.; Sunday-Wednesday, 5:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. Happy Hour happens Monday-Friday, 5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m. Free valet parking (in front of Cantine) and free parking in the Lamar Union garage. Here's to the last days of winter.
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.
