Travis Scott’s New Hard Seltzer Sells out and Other Houston Pop-Culture News 

Who’s headlining Bonnaroo and who won Jeopardy! Wednesday?

Last year, Travis Scott partnered with McDonald’s to recreate one of his favorite meals from childhood. This month, he's celebrating an adults-only collaboration with alcohol giant Anheuser-Busch. 

On March 15 Scott released his own line of hard seltzers, CACTI Agave Spiked Seltzer, which sold out within a week, outpacing rivals like White Claw and Mike’s Hard Lemonade, according to a press release. 

“I just want to say thank you to all the fans and supporters for going out and making the CACTI launch so successful,” Scott said in the release. “The reaction to the product has the team and I motivated to go even harder as we plan out what’s next for the brand. We are just getting started."

At 7-percent ABV, CACTI comes in three flavors: lime, pineapple, and strawberry. It doesn’t contain any tequila; instead, it’s made with water, fermented cane sugar, agave syrup, and lime juice. It’s sold in variety packs (nine 12-ounce cans) or 16- and 25-ounce single cans at your local grocery store. 

Tennessee-based music festival Bonnaroo released its 2021 fest lineup, scheduled for September 2–5, and we were stoked to see two Houston hotties at the top of the bill. Recent Grammy’s Best New Artist winner Megan Thee Stallion is taking the main stage Friday night, headlining September 3, along with Tame Impala. (Megan is also releasing a new single, “Pop It,” with Bankroll Freddie this Friday, April 2.)

“Good as Hell” singer and everyone’s flute-playing Instagram star Lizzo will headline the fest on Saturday, September 4, along with the Foo Fighters.

Houstonian and Southern District Of Texas judicial law clerk Emily Seaman continued making her rounds in the trivia game show world yesterday. 

Seaman, who appeared on Who Wants to Be A Millionaire? in 2017, competed on Jeopardy! on March 31. She took on the current two-day champ, Bryce Hwang, and Kevin Tanager, a doctor from Chicago. 

Dr. Oz was host (since longtime host Alex Trebek died of pancreatic cancer last year, celebrities have been guest-hosting each week), and Seaman swept her competitors, earning $8,400 and winning the whole shebang. 

Congrats, Emily!
