Right on schedule, Gourmands Neighborhood Pub opens today serving fat sandwiches and beer to hungry and thirsty Austinites. The kitchen serves from 11am-11pm, while the full bar pours happiness until 2am.
If you're looking for a new spot on the east side to try for happy hour, they are offering $2 wells, $1 off beer, $4 glasses of house wine, and 1/2 priced appetizers from 4-7pm.
Their location sits in a renovated Tejano club off East 7th Street, about a block or two past the usual East 6th haunts. As the rule goes, further east equals cooler, so be sure an check out this spot before the single-speed riding urban bohemians discover Gourmands and give it ironic ratings on Yelp.
