Fill Up on Barbecue and Free Music While Helping the Food Bank

Fill Up on Barbecue and Free Music While Helping the Food Bank

Who doesn’t like an evening of barbecue and a beer plus free music, all while supporting a great cause?

the swindles

The Swindles

That’s the secret to ongoing success of the Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2015 Live Music Series at The County Line, which benefits the San Antonio Food Bank.

Concerts are held every Wednesday night through July 29.

This is the 15th year for the series, which has featured some of the best Texas and national country musicians, such as Blake Shelton, Bart Crow Band, Kyle Park, Gary P. Nunn, Cory Morrow, Stoney LaRue, Randy Rogers, Jason Boland, Roger Creager, Wade Bowen, Pat Green, Aaron Watson, Radney Foster, Kevin Fowler, Bleu Edmondson, The Rick Cavender Band and more.

Here are the performers booked as of May 1, 2015 (headliners listed first):

The live music series is free; however, all who attend are asked to make a food or monetary donation to the San Antonio Food Bank.

Since it started, the series has raised more than 913,400 pounds of food for the San Antonio Food Bank; last year’s music series alone raised 93,458 pounds of food for the Food Bank, which translates into more than 73,000 meals to those in need in our community.

Two Tons of Steel

Last year, the National Restaurant Association named County Line a winner of its annual Restaurant Neighbor Award—one of only three in the state and the only one in San Antonio—for its charitable support and dedication to improving their local communities through its music series and donations to the Food Bank.

“Music, barbecue and the perfect way to give back.  This describes the great experience we have every week with the folks over at The County Line,” says Eric Cooper, San Antonio Food Bank president and CEO.  “This is a perfect example of community coming together in a fun way to help fight hunger in our community.  We are so grateful to those who come out every week to support the cause, and even more grateful to The County Line for continuing to be such an exceptional partner.”

The free music concerts are held every Wednesday night from 6:30 – 10 p.m. now through July 29 at The County Line Bar-B-Q restaurant at 10101 I-10 W. Held on the restaurant’s open-air patio, the opening act comes on at 6:30 p.m.; the headliner plays from 8 to 10 p.m. Concerts are held rain or shine. Drink specials run from 3 to 7 p.m. on concert days in the bar.

Sponsors thus far include Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, Y-100, Bud Light; Rebecca Creek; Enchanted Rock Vodka; Comfort Air/Primo Plumbing; Red Bull; Ozarka; Hallmark College, and Pure Party Ice.

The County Line continually updates the concert line-up on its website.

Sustenio Gets Into the Spirit of Lung Force Week

Sustenio Gets Into the Spirit of Lung Force Week

May 11 to 15 is Lung Force Week.

Blue Martini

Blue Bay Martini

That means a great deal to the staff at the Eilan Hotel & Spa:

–Sustenio Executive Chef John Herdman’s mother died from lung cancer.
–Director of Sales & Marketing Melanie Koscelnak’s mother is a lung cancer survivor.
–General Manager Robert Fagan lost his father to lung cancer and he himself suffers from a lung disease that requires frequent breathing treatments throughout the day.

Collectively, they have made it their personal mission to build awareness about lung disease and efforts to find a cure. Lung cancer is the No. 1 killer of women in America and the No. 2 of men. It kills more than breast cancer, colon and stomach combined per year and is the least known and least funded.

In support of lung cancer awareness and Lung Force Week, which was created by the American Lung Association, Eilan will feature a special Blue Bay Martini at Sustenio, 18603 La Cantera Terrace. The hotel will also light up its archway in blue, the color of lung week.

If you can’t make it out to Sustenio, you can still support the American Lung Association and mix up your own Blue Bay Martini.

Blue Bay Martini

1 ounce Kettle One
3/4 ounce Cointreau
3/4 ounce blue curaçao
3/4 ounce of Domain de Canton French-Ginger Liqueur

Rim half of martini glass with brown sugar.  Shake vodka, Cointreau, blue curaçao and ginger liqueur with ice, and pour into martini glass. Garnish with a whole strawberry and blueberry.

Makes 1 cocktail.

The Kentucky Derby’s Coming. Are You Ready to Party?

“The most exciting two minutes in sports,” aka the Kentucky Derby, is coming up Saturday!

Are your ready to have some fun?

Here are some local parties celebrating the 141st Run for the Roses as well as some tips and recipes to get you into the spirit. I just wish I had some tips on which horse to bet on.

Derby at the vineyard

Bending Branch Winery, 142 Lindner Branch Trail, Comfort, has become known for its lavish derby day party, which runs from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday.

There will be a hat parade competition, live music from Phil Grota and Friends as well as single-barrel blanc mint juleps and food.

Limited seating is available, so people are advised to bring their own chairs.

Advance tickets through April 30 are $40 apiece or $60 a couple, while VIP tables for 10 are $1,000 apiece and VIP tables for 10 with a case of wine and bottle service are $5,000. Tickets at the gate will be $50 apiece.

Ladies, get out your hats

Watch the derby live and in style at Sustenio Lounge in the Eilan Hotel & Spa, 18603 La Cantera Terrace.

Pre-show festivities begin at 3 p.m. During the event, you can:

–Enjoy Sustenio’s own Lavender Mint Julep and other drink specialties.

–Participate in the Best Hat Contest — and possibly win a dinner for 2 at Sustenio.

All women with hats will be treated to free appetizers.

For more information, call (210) 598-2950.
The Brooklynite steps up to the line, too

At 4 p.m. Saturday, check out The Brooklynite’s $5 bourbon cocktail specials and raffle prizes, sponsored by Maker’s Mark and Old Grandad.

Also, three guest bartenders, including: Houston Eaves of The Esquire Tavern, Stephan Mendez of The Last Word, and David Naylor of Park Social will be put through their paces as well.

Derby attire (hats and bowties) is recommended, especially pretty hats.

Address: 516 Brooklyn Ave.

Reservations: 210-444-0707
Give your julep a twist

Kentucky Derby, of course, means mint juleps, which are truly refreshing sippers this time of year.

Marie Zahn, one of Louisville’s leading mixologists, has provided her own twist on this classic in a recipe that uses Basil Hayden’s Bourbon and mint with some apricot preserves instead of sugar or simple syrup.

BH_High Stakes JulepBasil Hayden’s High Stakes Julep

10 mint leaves
2 parts Basil Hayden’s Bourbon
1 bar spoon Apricot Jelly or Preserves

Add 8 mint leaves to a glass and lightly press with the back of a bar spoon.

Add bourbon, apricot jelly and crushed ice into the glass.

Swizzle briefly and add more crushed ice until it is mounding over the top of the glass.

Add a straw and garnish with additional sprigs of mint.

Makes 1 julep.

From Marie Zahn/Basil Hayden’s Bourbon

If you want a recipe for a classic julep, click here.

julep cupThe right cup for juleps

A mint julep is traditionally served in a silver cup presented to you on a silver tray. The cup gets so cold that servers opt for the tradition of wearing gloves. (OK, we Kentucky folks love our tradition, no matter the reason, so the gloves will be worn regardless.)

If you want to get into the derby spirit, you can get silver julep cups at Twin Liquors. I saw these beauties at the one on U.S. 281 near Bitters Road. Call whichever store you’re closest to if you want to see if they’re in stock before making a trip.

They sell for $19.79 apiece. And, yes, they are silver.

‘Turn Me Loose’ at Fiesta Oyster Bake

‘Turn Me Loose’ at Fiesta Oyster Bake

Rain or shine, the Fiesta Oyster Bake was happening Friday night. That meant, rain or shine, I was going to be working. Thankfully, the rain held off, for the most part, until I was under the protective cover of the pavilion where the wine booth was located.

Pork chop on a stick!

Pork chop on a stick!

My friends and I felt a few drops and sloshed through some mud puddles on our way around the St. Mary’s campus. But for the most part, the evening delivered on the fun that the event promises each year — down to the fireworks that sends the crowds home.

Before our shift, we wandered the food booths, getting an early fill of chicken on a stick, shrimp on a stick and steak on a stick, holding off on sausage on a stick, pork chop on a stick and even cucumber on a stick until we could fully assess our choices. An oyster shot, chilled and briny, prepped me for the oyster bucket that was to come. Toward the end of the evening, my friend Cindy and I squared off: She purchased a bucket of baked oysters, while I eagerly went for a bucket of raw. The plump Gulf beauties went down easily. And thank you, Kathleen, for being the designated shucker (after I lightly punctured my hand on a particularly stubborn bivalve. Thank goodness for those wet napkins that came with the dozen or so oysters, priced at $7.)

Chicken on a stick!

Chicken on a stick!

This year, the Oyster Bake featured a food truck area that included such favorites as the Duk Truck, Wheelie Gourmet, Saweet Cupcakes and Cheesy Jane’s. From barbecue to bacon-topped tacos, they had you covered.

More music was on the menu, too, as added stages meant you could choose jazz, country, Tejano and hip hop in addition to the headliner, ’80s favorite Loverboy, who had the crowd singing along to “Turn Me Loose.”

This year’s wine booth featured Robert Mondavi’s Woodbridge collection, and the lovers of sweet drinks were out in force.

“I want the sweetest wine you’ve got,” was a phrase we heard dozens of times throughout our shift. And when they saw the Moscato being poured in the cup, more than half would ask before taking a sip, “You sure this is the sweetest wine you’ve got?”

What? No oysters on a stick?

What? No oysters on a stick?

In a lineup that included Woodbridge White Zinfandel, Rosatello Rosso, a sweet red blend, and Rosatello Sparkling Rosé, the Moscato won the crown for being the sweetest. And the customers must have agreed, for we had many repeat customers.

Galoshes

Galoshes

We also had folks returning for the dry Woodbridge selections, including Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. And while they, too, were faithful to their choice, they were simply outnumbered, with Chardonnay and Merlot being the least chosen wines of the evening. That’s a change from years past.

We also had a captive crowd for an hour or so, as the sky opened up and sent those without umbrellas looking for cover.

The Oyster Bake was set to continue Saturday with more oysters, music and fun. Hopefully, the day will be a little dryer. But you may want to wear your galoshes, just to navigate the mud.

 

More galoshes.

More galoshes.

Happy customers at the wine table.
