As the school year is fast upon us, it seems like everyone is trying to soak up the last little bit of summer possible. I had a fun time getting out to the Frio River up at Concan, TX this past weekend and probably ate and drank more than one human being should. Because of that trip, there really wasn’t any restaurants to review this week in the quick bites, however, it has been a big week of food news – on to the quick bites!
- The Twitter account for the Express News Taste section is reporting that Chef Steve McHugh will be leaving the kitchen at Lüke San Antonio in order to start his own restaurant at the Pearl Brewery complex. He is going to remain on staff at Lüke until the end of this month to help with the transition; his new restaurant should be opened in early 2013.
- SavorSA has posted that chef and TV star Anthony Bourdain will appear at Trinity University’s Laurie Auditoriumon November 8, 2013. VIP Tickets will give folks the opportunity to a meet-and-greet along with complementary hors d’oeuvres.
- It turns out that San Antonio Jane is not the only super fan of Five Guys Burgers and Fries, the internet has been abuzz with the latest autotuned video by the Gregory Brothers featuring YouTube reviewer Daym Drops. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check out the original video (especially the clip at 5:17 where Daym sums up my feelings on crispy bacon) along with other reviews of fast food joints on his channel. You can enjoy the autotuned version by watching below.
