Treat yourself on 4/20 with Kacey Musgraves’ ‘High Time’ special


Every year on April 20, some people like to kick back and... well, smoke weed.

Texas country singer and former Austin resident Kacey Musgraves understands when 4/20 rolls around, people might be doing their own rolling. So why not help them out with their “high time?”

Musgraves, who has been very public about her marijuana use, is offering those looking to light up in style the perfect merch bundle. For $40, fans can purchase an autographed photo, “cigarette rolling papers” and a relaxed-fit T-shirt with the message, “It’s High Time.”

The phrase refers to Musgraves’ song off her sophomore album Pageant Material. The rolling papers include the lyrics “slow your roll” and “let the grass just grow and lean way back.” 

Last year, Musgraves spent April 20th getting a tour of pal Willie Nelson’s cannabis business. And when you’ve got a guy like that in your contacts, any time is high time. 

Listen to “High Time” below.

Scallops are beloved by pretty much everyone who can eat them (shellfish allergies need not apply). And why not? They’re tender, they’re sweet, they taste...

Recipe of the Week: Bourbon blue cheese puts this steak over the top

Food media tends to separate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day along a well-defined line. Put all the meat and grilling stories for dad in June and leave all the breakfast-in-bed and brunch stories for mom in May. Well, this mom is ready for a thick-cut steak this Mother’s Day, so I turned to Loreal Gavin, author of “The Butcher...
Surprise! Southern Comfort has no whiskey. But soon it will.

When Sazerac Co. bought Southern Comfort from liquor conglomerate Brown-Forman last year, the business motivation was clear. “If you and I ended on a desert island and there was a bottle of liquor, there’s an even-money chance it would be Southern Comfort,” Mark Brown, chief executive of Sazerac, said in a phone interview. Very likely...

As a new food season dawns, epicures face wave upon wave of fresh produce over which to obsess. But as we celebrate the evolving cast of seasonal bounty, the strawberries, tomatoes, sweet corn, peaches, and other joys of summer, it’s important to remember another subset of crops that often slip through the cracks, in part because they are always...
