Blue Cactus Cafe in Five Points has long had a BYOB beer and wine policy in place, but who has time to remember to bring alcohol to a restaurant?

Starting on Thursday, Feb. 14, diners will finally be able to order more than sweet tea at the Cactus. Owner Julie Ford says they are starting with a small selection of beer and wine. On the list so far are Filipino beers San Miguel and San Miguel Light; Founders' Solid Gold and Whiskers on Kittens; Benford’s World’s Problem Solver; Wild Tonic (an alcoholic kombucha); and Yan Jing, a Chinese beer.
