AT&T Center’s own towering inferno of fat


Fans of the meat sweats and carnivorous buffets are in for a treat these days, as Loopland has gotten a new Brazilian steakhouse. Galpão Gaucho (20079 Stone Oak Pkwy, Ste 3100, (210) 497-2500) is a casual and contemporary experience without the exorbitant prices found at other establishments. For now, unlimited meat service is priced at $21.50 for lunch and $29.50 for dinner and includes 12 cuts of meat like house favorites picanha (noble sirloin), ribeye and lamb chops (vegetarians can enjoy a 25-item gourmet salad bar). Happy hour is available Monday through Friday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and features authentic caipirinha and pisco sours.

In other meaty news, the AT&T Center and food service Aramark, announced a new Finals-worthy sandwich before Game 1. The Three-Pointer, a tribute to Timmy, Manu and Tony, includes three barbecued meats (pork, smoked beef brisket and sausage), three cheeses (Texas havarti, Muenster and queso fresco), Mexican Coca Cola caramelized onions and a choice of sauce (root beer BBQ, adobo BBQ or Creole mustard BBQ) sandwiched between three slices of Texas Toast. Tasty, no? The Three-Pointer, $12.50, will be available again come Game 5 on June 15.

Hotel Havana (1015 Navarro, (210) 222-2008) is beefing up their happy hour. Unwind from a hectic workday Monday through Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. with $3 to $5 snacks (tostones, huitlacoche quesadillas, salsa platters) and similarly priced drinks including $4 mojitos, $3 Barone Fini pinot grigio, $4 Castillo de Monseran garnacha and $3 Shiners.

’Tis the season for bandwagon soccer fans to clamor around a TV: The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off Thursday, June 12. You can watch most of the game play at Freetail Brewing Co. (4035 N 1604 W, Ste 105, (210) 395-4974), but make sure to arrive early for U.S. matches. Look for a list of World Cup viewing parties at sacurrent.com.

The next 45 days at Mixtli (5251 McCullough, (832) 520-8928) are going to be especially rad. The progressive Mexican eatery will focus on the gastronomy of Mexico City subway stations starting July 9 through August 21. The menu for “El Metro” will include all manner of street food, including quesadillas, tortas, tostadas, gorditas and tamales with a modern twist prepared by chefs Diego Galicia and Rico Torres. Tickets sell out quickly so don’t sleep on this.
