Austin Marathon Food Specials
Since the Austin Marathon is happening this Sunday, February 17, two local restaurants are offering food specials for runners. Both locations of Fresa’s Chicken al Carbon (North Lamar and South First) will give out a free taco to runners who have their race medals.
Then, since Govalle restaurant The Brewer’s Table is along the race route, it’s opening up its lager garden for spectators. Runners with medals or bibs will be available to get a free beer. Plus there will be alfresco happy hour pricing throughout the day, and brunch isn’t going to be served.
Cherry Blossom Art
South Congress Japanese restaurant Lucky Robot will redecorate its space with a pop-up art installation involving cherry blossoms. It will consist of over 500 pounds of fresh flowers strung throughout the exterior and interior of the building. There will be a cherry blossom-themed food menu as well, with partial proceeds benefitting The Trail Foundation. It runs from Wednesday, March 6 through Monday, May 6.
