Get to Minnie’s for duck confit ASAP

The iconic, but not historically designated, Boehler House, home of the former Liberty Bar and currently Minnie’s Tavern (328 E Josephine, (210) 220-1850), will not be relocated to the Pearl. The Historic and Design Review Commission denied the application to dissect and relocate the building last Wednesday, citing its historic relevance to the area. The commission’s main concern was what would become of the building once relocated, and what, if anything, would be built in its place. Bill Shown of Silver Ventures, the developers behind the Pearl, clarified that putting a parking lot in its place was an immediate solution and not long-term use for the space. For now, the Pearl is figuring out where to go from here. “Our team is regrouping to assess the situation now that we have a determination from HDRC. We will make the decision about whether to proceed with the purchase of the property over the next few weeks,” said Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer for the Pearl, over email. Basically get to Minnie’s Tavern while you still can as the eatery’s future is still up in the air.

“What did we do to deserve this?” I asked myself just that when I opened the press release for Paula Deen Live. Yes, the ex-Food Network star, cookbook author, caterer, restaurateur and admitted user of racial epithets will grace our fair city on Wednesday, August 6 at the Majestic Theatre. As part of her 20-show comeback tour, Deen will be joined by husband Michael for a 90-minute interactive show where she’ll cook her favorite seasonal dishes … probably not the buttery monstrosities of yesteryear, but the waist-friendly fare she’s promoting nowadays. Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 15 at 10 a.m.

Flynn’s Bar (8123 Broadway, (210) 901-8883) opened last week inside the former Revolution Room/Leon. New owners are hoping to bring back the spirit of Rev Room with live music in the front bar and bumpin’ dance jams in the back bar.

As for this weekend, you’ll have plenty of chances to eat, drink and be merry with Culinaria’s Festival Week (May 14-18) and the finale of San Antonio Beer Week on Sunday, May 18. 

Finally, the Quarry Farmers & Ranchers Market is turning three on Sunday, May 18 with a 80-pound heritage pig roast by new member Jaime Treviño, Spanish paella and chorizo by Nacho Gallego and Marisa Bushman of La Mancha Specialties, and potstickers via Ming Qian of Ming’s Thing, all available for purchase. The market runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot near Whole Foods Market (255 E Basse).
