    Lincoln Journal Star – October 19, 2016 – San Antonio, TX

  • Galveston's Beach Breweries Make for Super-Relaxed Island 'Hopping

    Dallas Morning News – September 29, 2016 – Dallas, TX

    BOI means Born on the Island to most, but it's all relative. Some craft brew aficionados see a double meaning to the acronym. BOI, to some, also means Brewed on the Island.  With summer tapering off, there might still be some time to slip away to the coast. Some say the beach is even better in the fall with cooler temps and fewer crowds. It's also a good time to go island hopping -- to see what Galveston Island has to offer in the way of hops.

    Travel+Leisure – August 23, 2016 – , TX

    Fair food is serious business in Texas, and expectations run high when it comes to the creativity and taste of concession cuisine.  Although the State Fair of Texas opening day is not until September 30, the countdown has begun with the release of the not-to-miss foods for the 2016 season. The fair has already released the final dishes in the 12th Annual Big Tex Choice Awards.  There were more than 55 entries to choose from this year, and only eight were selected to go up against the panel of judges who will determine ultimate fair food supremacy.  The State Fair of Texas takes place in Dallas every year at the acclaimed Fair Park and lasts longer than any other state fair in the United States. Last year was a record year with over 10 million tickets sold and this year is certain not to disappoint.  Prepare yourself, these are the top eight dishes you will absolutely or not at all want to seek out while at the fair this year.
  • The New Marfa: Where to Eat, Stay and Shop Now

    W Magazine – August 18, 2016 – Marfa, TX

    If you’re on any form of social media, it’s likely that you’ve seen this image more than once: a stand-alone Prada store in the middle of a desert, no other building in sight.
    It’s in fact a piece of art, commissioned by the nonprofit gallery Ballroom Marfa in 2005, and has since become the beacon signaling the trendy rise of the tiny, remote West Texas town of Marfa. In the past year alone, a disproportionate number of shops, restaurants, and galleries have opened in Marfa — although any new opening would seem disproportionate to a population of 1,819.
  • T&C Travel Guide: Austin, Texas

    Town & Country – August 2, 2016 – Austin, TX

    As far as trends go, they're going to Austin. That's most palpable along South Congress Avenue, just across the Colorado River from downtown and once a diaspora for Austin's hippie crowd. Today, it's minted with a palette of trendy shops and restaurants scintillating with neon signs. Startups and discerning boutiques run the city, while every emerging craft has chased another. Already known for its live music, Austin now beckons chefs to headline a broader cultural landscape—kitchens aren't just for cooking, but for milling heritage grains in-house, or for distilling house-made spirits. A renaissance of high-brow taste is served with Southern charm and Austin's laid back manner.

    amNewYork – August 1, 2016 – Austin, TX

But today, the rock stars are chefs who’ve earned acclaim for trendy eats beyond just Southern staples. The booming region attracts more than 150 new residents each day. Here’s how they’re staying happy and full.
