Low Country Boil
Join us for our first-ever low country boil! A low country boil is the southeastern coast's equivalent to a New England clambake...The components are layered into a stockpot of boiling water, seasoning, and beer at timed intervals so the potatoes are perfectly tender just as the shrimp turns opaque.
Low country boil: ½ pound peel and eat shrimp with andouille sausage, Cajun boiled potatoes and sweet corn $18
Everything can be purchased on-site day of.
Please join us for live music in Mountain Goat Plaza featuring Wood and Wire.
The Texas songwriter tradition casts a long shadow today, and Austin-based Americana roots juggernauts Wood & Wire could easily rattle off a long list of songwriters that inspire them from Willie Nelson to James McMurtry, and everyone in between. But ask them about what it is about Texas that brought us so many great songwriters, and they stop cold. That’s because they don’t romanticize their culture or their past, they’re too busy working their asses off making new music, writing new songs. This isn’t a land made for quiet reflection, it’s a land made for hard work. Respect for honest labor is a central theme in Wood & Wire’s 2018 GRAMMY Nominated album for “Best Bluegrass”, North of Despair ( Blue Corn Music), with songs populated by people like songwriter Tony Kamel’s own grandfather, who built the family’s hunting lodge in Llano, Texas with his own two hands. The characters on the album live large, and aren’t afraid to share their opinions about the modern world. This kind of vivid, haunting songwriting focused on lives spent deep in the countryside is a hallmark of Texas songwriting. But it’s the melding of this hard country songwriting with high-octane bluegrass instrumentation that makes for Wood & Wire’s signature sound.
