Friday - Sunday
Apr 20-22
The Brewer's Table
After many, many, many months of anticipation, The Brewer's Table -- the restaurant/brewery concept we've all been waiting for -- finally opened for business on Thursday. Serving lunch, happy hour, and dinner, the spot utilizes a custom wood-fired grill that imbues smokiness into practically everything on the menu, from the rabbit carnitas to the raclette-topped Hearth Burger. You need to try this place, before it's impossible to get a seat at the table -- if it's not too late already, that is.
Price: $8-15 for lunch, $12-25 for dinner

Hops and Grain
Just in time for the 4/20 weekend, Hops & Grain is releasing a specialty “Dispensary” beer series, including a pale ale, pilsner, and IPA -- they’re not infused with hemp oil or anything, it’s just a name. This is your chance to celebrate the “holiday” the legal way: with a few specialty pours, and a commemorative tulip glass.
Price: $10

LeRoy and Lewis
Austin's got plenty of great barbecue joints worth meat-sweating yourself at, but only LeRoy and Lewis is celebrating its one-year anniversary this weekend, with collaboration cocktails from Cosmic Coffee & Beer and special menu items like bacon ribs and crispy skin pork belly. The stationary food truck will be serving its fine meats from 11am until they're sold out, so show up early if you want to partake in the feast. Bonus: They'll also be raffling off a gift-filled Yeti cooler, with proceeds benefitting the Austin Food & Wine Alliance.
