Scrumptious Chef R.L. Reeves, Jr. is back with an extra helping of his Chef Pop-up Series this Sunday beginning at 11am. In crafting this week’s menu, Reeves, Jr. has turned to the West Texas city of Terlingua for inspiration, meaning expect to feast on a bowl of delicious chili. With the weekend’s forecast predicting brisk temperatures, I can’t imagine a more perfect way to warm up than with the official Texas dish of fall. The 5th installment will once again be held at Three Little Pigs/East End Wines spot located at 1209 Rosewood Avenue, Austin, TX 78702. More details here.
