— Alamo Drafthouse's sold-out women-only screenings of Wonder Woman at the Ritz tomorrow will be staffed by women workers, from the kitchen staff to the servers. The theater reiterates that it means "people who identify as women only." There has been some pushback from (attention-seeking) men who felt left out.

— Lockhart's Black's BBQ lost one of its longtime pitmasters and family members over the weekend. Edgar Clarence Black, Jr. died last Friday at the age of 91. Services will be held tomorrow, Tuesday, June 6, at the First United Methodist Church in Lockhart with, of course, barbecue. Edgar Black (the senior) opened the restaurant in 1932.

— Carmack Concepts, the company behind Texas mini-chain The Dogwood, sold off its other two bars, Chuggin' Monkey and Dizzy Rooster. The new owners are a group of people that includes Josh Hazzard, who is currently the general manager of Lustre Pearl.

— Erik Mauck and Daniel Reyes are working on a documentary starring East 6th Street bar La Perla, with the help of its owner, Eddie Costilla.
