— All locations of Voodoo Doughnuts, including the Austin one on 212 East 6th Street, will serve up margarita-inspired doughnuts for a limited time this week. The decidedly not-boozy doughnuts were inspired by tequila company Jose Cuervo. Of the three offerings, one looks like an actual margarita, with lemon jelly, vanilla frosting, lime dust, and white sprinkles on the side. It’ll be available from Thursday, February 22 through Saturday, February 24. The doughnuts are free on Thursday, and will cost $2.50 later on.

San Marcos barbecue joint Hays County Barbeque is temporarily closed while it relocates into a new building. Its last day in its original address on 1612 South Interstate Highway 35 was on Monday, February 12. It’s predicting that it will reopen in three to four weeks.

Eater 38 vegetarian restaurant and cafe Bouldin Creek Cafe is looking for a new operations manager, and it’s expanding its search to the entire country. Interested applicants should reach out to the restaurant.

— Texas Monthly explored the usage of fancy pricy cuts of meat in barbecue, starting from Franklin Barbecue’s prime-grade briskets to Killen’s Barbecue’s wagyu beef brisket. Snow’s Barbecue out in Lexington notably doesn’t use high-grade beef, but still delivers some of the best briskets in the state.
