Beloved Uptown foodie (and drinkie) spot, Barter, closed last week while I was at the San Antonio Cocktail Conference … this is what happens when I go out of town. 🙁

Get the beach, seafood, and beer experience … ya know … that whole Corona commercial
shit awesomeness at the soon to open fresh casual concept, C’Viche. Starting February 10, enjoy fresh seafood from chef and owner Randall Warder. The part I’m most excited about? The “creative tequila , artisan rum, pisco and cachaca cocktails using all fresh ingredients. Sangria, Texas craft beers and Mexican and South American draft beer round out the beverage mix.” Bring it.
The Ranch Hand Dan is an all-natural chicken patty, bacon, Swiss cheese, field mushrooms, caramelized onions, tomato, red leaf lettuce, buttermilk ranch on an egg bun that you can get for a cool $9.00. It’ll be available through Sunday, February 8. Get your (ranch) hands on it now.
We like a good sausage, but we love a good beer. Double down with Saint Arnold Brewing Co.‘s Amber Ale Bratwurst and Santo Bratwurst, the results of a partnership with Farmland Foods. Get it at HEB and Central Market stores throughout Texas.
I’m glad to hear that a restaurant finally made a BOTM just for me. 2/2-2/28, Snuffer’s will offer a Bacon Lover’s Burger (100% fresh ground chuck, bacon crumbles, two strips of Applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, grilled onions, tomatoes, pickles, and mayo) for $9.49 … and you can get in line behind me.
