A Brunch Full of Sticky Buns

We’ve got news. It’s related to bourbon-pecan sticky buns. And how the Tried and True is serving them for brunch now. (Oh yeah, the Tried and True is serving brunch now.) Stop in this weekend for some sticky buns and a salmon-and-egg sandwich. You know, for protein.

Sunday
Cocktails and Ribs in Trinity Groves
RACK CITY

Cocktails and Ribs in Trinity Groves

Whiskey. Barbecue. Cocktails. Tequila. Music. We could go on, but we’ll stop here to tell you that it’s all happening at Babb Bros this Sunday. Drop by. Eat ribs. Drink drinks. Listen to a banjo. Then, do it all again. Feel free to switch up the order, though.

Wednesday
A Bracket-Style Cook-Off
BIG DANCE

A Bracket-Style Cook-Off

You know all those restaurants going into Trinity Groves... well, they’re engaging in a bracket-style competition throughout the summer. It starts Wednesday night with Souk vs. Casa Rubia. What this means for you: the important task of choosing the winner. Oh, and eating two dinners. Can’t forget about that.
