F1 is the big event happening this weekend at Circuit of the Americas with Fan Fest parties in the downtown area as well. You can hear a concert from Sir Elton John, see a light installation from POP Austin Art Show at Fair Market, or steer clear of all the race commotion and check out the AIA Austin Homes Tour. If you find yourself in East Austin over the weekend, head to Whisler's and check out their daily happy hour 4:00-7:00 p.m. with $6 craft cocktails from their happy hour menu. I tried the High Plains Drifter with tequila, campari, lime, and honey syrup. A sweet-tart, sly drink that was easy-sipping and paired well with many of the menu items from resident food trailer, Thai Kun. Mezcalería Tobalá, Whisler's secret Mescal bar, is open upstairs on Friday and Saturday, 8:00 p.m.-2:00 a.m. Stay dry and enjoy the weekend.
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.
