Get your fill of cured meats starting Tuesday


Details are starting to solidify on the second installment of Charcuterie Week (or Charc Week, the tasty cousin to Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week”). After taking a wee break in 2013, the week-long celebration of all things cured and preserved, hosted by Restaurant Gwendolyn along with new partners Defining Delicious and Culinaria, kicks off next Tuesday. Eateries added to the lineup include Arcade Midtown Kitchen, Hotel Valencia, Johnny Hernandez’s El Machito, Big Hops Gastropub, Boiler House and Hot Joy. And the $20 plates won’t be limited to just that—Mixtli will feature carry-out bento boxes, available for purchase at the restaurant or online, with chorizo, butifarra Chiapaneca, goose liver pâté with Mexican vanilla geleè, huitlacoche butter and other goodies for the bougiest (and tastiest) picnic ever. Rosella Coffee Co. on the other hand, will buck the meaty trend with a vegetarian plate and a wine pairing, while The Luxury will include a beer pairing with their offering. 

There are few things worse than a DWI (one imagines), but there’s a new company in town that’s trying to help keep partiers away from the driver’s seat. Beer Runners, a startup created by Bexar law enforcement officer Gabriel Gutierrez and wife Miranda Snider, offers beer and tobacco delivery across San Antonio at a $6.99 delivery rate. The beer list available online includes all the Miller and Bud you can imagine, along with a few Mexican brews, Lone Star and Michelob Ultra for those watching their caloric intake, but craft lovers are SOL …for now. Beer Runners currently carries Sam Adams and Shiner Bock, but is paying close attention to market demands to help improve selection. Although prices are higher than those found in stores, Beer Runners motto argues, “Our beer is not over-priced, we simply charge a $6.99 delivery fee … that’s still cheaper than a DWI!”

Fans of Kate’s Frosting will now only have one option when it comes to satiating their cupcake Jones. Owner Kate Frost Monroe has decided to consolidate her stores, by way of shutting down her second location on Broadway and expanding the original Kate’s Frosting at 2518 N Main. The move means more ovens and therefore more treats including to-go cakes, muffins, pies and an expanded cookie menu. The shop will also launch earlier morning hours this fall.
