INDIE CHEFS WIRE — Foreign & Domestic announced the first lineup for owner/chef Ned Elliot’s Indie Chefs Week, taking place from January 6-10. The list of culinary minds, so far, include Austin’s own Steven Cak from Gardner and Josh Jones from Salt & Time, along with chefs from San Francisco, New York, and elsewhere. Each evening, the restaurant will host a seven-course dinner created by several of the participants. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN — Swift’s Attic’s executive chef Mat Clouser sang the praises of in-season-right-now satsuma, the Japanese citrus fruit, in this month’s Garden and Gun. The fruit is readily available in December, and he offers three recipes using the fruit’s juices. [Swift’s Attic/Facebook]

BEER WIRE — Running a charity race in a gorilla suit might sound silly, but it’s for charity and brewery Thirty Planet makes it sweeter with the launch of its special brew. The annual Gorilla Run takes place this Saturday, December 6. The beer, the Silverback Pale Ale, will be kegged at the brewery’s taproom in Dripping Springs. All proceeds from the new beer and the race will go towards the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. [EaterWire]

HOLIDAY WIRE — Get into the gift-giving spirit at Hops & Grain’s White Elephant present exchange party on Sunday, December 21, from 12-6pm. The $30 ticket comes with four beers, a mug, and the brewery’s own holiday sweater. Party-goers must bring their own gift, with a price tag up to $15, to toss into the party-wide exchange pile.
