SHUTTER WIRE— The Chron shares the news that The Blue Moose at 5306 Washington is closing. It "was a comfortable spot, that in spite of its name, was all about taking pride in the Lone Star State." [Houston Chronicle]

MONTROSE— Gastronaut offers a look at a Tex-Mex take on shrimp étouffée: "The newest creation at Sandy Witch is called the Swamp Thing, which marries a burrito ahogado—a "drowned" burrito typically stuffed with beef or chicken and covered with chili and cheese—with a Cajun classic: shrimp étouffée."
