PSA: Attention Beer Lovers who travel to Destin - coolpapaboze
Chans, the wine store in the shopping center at 98 and the road that turns into the trans bay bridge, has opened a gastro pub, CraftBar, that has some ridiculous number of beers on tap. It's right next to Chans, on the back side of the building. I went tonight to check out the menu, and it looks p...

Interview with Donald Link on Eater.com - coolpapaboze
Really impressed with him and he really articulates how his approach translates to exceptional food.

I moved before they opened and this is the first time I have been back to Lafayette since. I have been twice this week and I really like it.
