The Texas Book Festival will be hosting Literary Libations Week from August 15 to 19 at bars and restaurants in Austin, San Antonio, and Houston.
Some of Texas’ most popular watering holes, including The Townsend, Backbeat, Small Victory, and more, have created signature, literary-inspired cocktails to be offered for the week. A percentage of proceeds from each drink sold will be donated to the TBF in support of its annual Lit Crawl on Saturday, November 5.
Participating bars and restaurants include Backbeat (Austin), Botika (San Antonio), Etoile Cuisine et Bar (Houston), Freedmen’s (Austin), Weights & Measures (Houston), Mongoose Versus Cobra (Houston), Nightcap (Austin), Paramour (San Antonio), Searsucker (Austin), Small Victory (Austin), Sternewirth (San Antonio), TBA (San Antonio), The Dogwood (Austin), The Wheel (Austin), VOX Table (Austin), and Weather Up (Austin).
Proceeds from Literary Libations Week benefit Lit Crawl, a collaboration between the Texas Book Festival and the Litquake Foundation, which will be held this year on Saturday, November 5 at bars located on East Cesar Chavez Street, and a final Literary Death Match at The North Door. Lit Crawl’s free events feature some of America’s most groundbreaking and beloved writers onstage for literary mayhem in unexpected places.
