Baby Yoda Cake
The cake experts behind Sideserf Cake Studio paid tribute to the Internet’s latest obsession: Baby Yoda, the unidentified child creature from the newest Star Wars television show The Mandalorian, in cake form. A video on Sideserf’s Facebook page details how the Baby Yoda cake was built, from the layer cake to the shaping of the face and doe-like eyes made of gelatin to the extended ears

Barbecue Subscription Service
Driftwood barbecue institution Salt Lick is debuting an entire monthly barbecue subscription delivery service. As part of the six-month package, Salt Lick will shop a variety of meats and accoutrements. January will feature smoked brisket, February two whole racks of pork ribs, March regular or spicy smoked turkey breast, and so on. It’s available for purchase via its website starting on Friday, November 29, as part of Black Friday. Only 100 packages will be sold, and it’s $89.25 per month.

Winner of Wine & Swine
The winner of Austin Food & Wine Alliance’s annual pork-centric food event this past Sunday is Italian restaurant L’Oca d’Oro. Chef Fiore Tedesco whipped up a grilled pork shoulder saltimbocca. The restaurant received $1,000 as part of its award.

New South Austin Sports Bar and Restaurant
New restaurant Brick’s Pub opened in the old Independence Fine Foods space at 1807 West Slaughter Lane in far south Austin as of early November. There’s what appears to be a general American-slash-sports bar menu with burgers, fries, cocktails, and, yes, brunch. It’s from the owner of Moontower Saloon and Vincent’s Sports Pub, according to Community Impact. Independence Fine Foods closed sometime in January 2019.

Beerland Changes
Music publication Noises and Signals chronicled the forthcoming changes to Red River music venue and bar Beerland, which will be run by a group including Stubb’s general manager Ryan Garrett. It’s aiming to reopen in December before the holidays. There’s going to be a new carved wooden bar, renovated bathrooms, a lounge space, etc.
