Restaurants Shilling With the Shutdown

The LBJ Library is closed, and don't plan on hitting up Big Bend this weekend. Oh, and the USDA is no longer inspecting most food, the CDC won't monitor outbreaks, and many federal employees are on unpaid furloughs. Obviously the government shutdown is the perfect time for social media shilling.

Here are a few Twitter and Facebook posts that have popped up so far, plus a reminder from local parody account @bevscloakroom that Texans are no strangers to, er, smaller government. Eater National as the scoop on what the shutdown means for food and drink.
