Daily Beast: SA's pickled
Published: January 4, 2012
If your New Year's Eve seemed particularly out of control, don't tell it to the Daily Beast. The online news site is well aware of San Antonians' alcohol obsession. In fact, in the now-annual "drunkest cities" survey, the Beast lifted the Alamo City from nineteenth drunkest (2010) to fifth most-soused city (2011). That's a lot of margaritas (a self-reported 14.2 drinks per person per month, in fact). Boston won the top spot, while Austin slipped into seventh place, and Houston trailed at 25. Do we really drink that much more than other cities, or could it be we're just more honest about it?
In other news, G&G Mobile Bistro has called it quits. After paring down services and working to book more private events, the upscale food vendor on wheels is up on the blocks. Need a young truck modified with a griddle, burner range, steam wells, and convection oven? We're told that $15,000 price is negotiable. You may even talk your way into the pots and pans.
