We've picked six of our favorite upcoming events from this week's Thrillist editions.
Austin: Mac 'n cheese... sausage?
Another solid addition to the E. 6th trailer park housing Austin Juicy Jerk, Baton Creole, and Pueblo Viejo, Goldis is an artisan sausage-slinger boasting a regularly rotating menu of Sweetish Hill-bunned links ranging from the eponymous Goldis (beef, pork, chunky garlic, mustard seed, caraway) to sweet varieties like the Blueberry Mint Maple (pork, balsamic vinegar, jerk spice) and experiments like a smoky mac 'n cheese sausage, which, if anything, proves they're dedicated to their Kraft.
Goldis Sausage Company: 907 E. 6th St.; 401-527-9050.
