Hello Delicious Fans,
We can hardly believe how busy we are with all the food and beverage events happening in San Antonio this week and throughout the rest of the summer. Today marks the beginning of Charcuterie Week, in which we are proud sponsors. To learn more about the fine art of charcuterie, read THIS article written by Chef Michael Sohocki for our friends at The Rivard Report. Chef Sohocki has created a hand-crafted campaign and is inspiring the city’s local chefs to make their charcuterie in-house and from scratch. All plates are $20 and some include wine and beer pairings. Charc week will be running from today, July 22- July 26. There are a few places who are offering a lunch plate, Fruteria, Cured and Boiler House and Rosella will start their plate at around 3p.m. The rest of the participants will be offering a dinner-only plate.
There are 23 participating restaurants including:
Plus: Hot Joy, Big Hop Gastropub, Starfish and Fruteria.

On Wednesday, July 23rd art, music, food and beer will collide. You will find us chomping on avocado fries at 1221 Growler Station. They will be hosting a local Jazz band, Soulzzafying led by Adam “The Jazz” Tutor and co-hosting with them will be a live art made by Elyse Blechman all happening from 5pm-9pm.
On Friday, July 25th you will find us with our friends at The San Antonio Current, for their second annual Cocktail event. There will be fabulous libations from our favorite bars and clients: The Brooklynite, Stay Golden Social House, The Esquire Tavern and Viva TacoLand.
