The Bar is Where It’s At

Brixens makes fine drinks and casual fare for out-of-towners

Brixens is one part dressed-up sports bar and one part standard American casual restaurant.

Food on the Move

FishCat Cafe in Alpine, Texas

A horse trailer sake bar in a small Texas town. Of course.

Robin Babb didn't know what sort of late night dining she was expecting to find in Alpine, Texas, but she certainly wasn’t expecting a Japanese fusion food truck with horse trailer sake bar.
This young maiden is no match for this criminally large turkey leg.

CBD-Infused Dinner

CBD has become a homeopathic miracle drug for not only the 505, but for a lot of folks in this country. For those suffering from anxiety, it's like all-natural Xanax. Experiencing pain? It can be more useful than ibuprofen and lidocaine. Its uses barely scratch the surface in this little blurb. La Luna Bakery and Café hosts its first CBD-infused dinner to show off the vastness of what can be done with this phenomenon. On Wednesday, Dec. 19 from 6 to 10pm the bakery, who are active members of the James Beard Foundation, partner with ABQ Barkeeps and Chef Robin Valdez for a four-course, medicated masterpiece. Those 18 and over can purchase a ticket for $75 and enjoy a full spectrum of flavors, not only in the thoughtfully prepared food, but from the delectably curated terpenes in each dish. The evening isn't complete without CBD-infused cocktails and dessert. While eating and chilling, receive some knowledge from Nature's CBD and Oils as they provide an education workshop during the meal.
