One is the weather.
The other is a concert.
And there’s at least one Uptown place now where you can enjoy both.
Hold a lighter over your head for The Rustic, an indoor/outdoor restaurant and music hall full of local beers and wood-fired meats, hosting a few preview parties this weekend before officially opening Wednesday.
This place is brought to you by the Bowl & Barrel and Mutts guys. And Pat Green. The country music guy. Because, hey, teamwork. And they’ve dreamed up this sprawling space of reclaimed woods, cow-skull adornments and a massive backyard for watching music of the live variety.
So come here to eat wild-boar meatballs and grilled quail. Come here to drink Texas drafts and tequila cocktails. Come here to listen to music and dance around. What we’re saying is, don’t be a stranger.
On any given night, you might stop by for dinner and stay for a drink. But when the weekends bring big acts, those backyard tables clear out, creating plenty of room for all your friends.
And like a thousand people you don’t know.
