Event of the Week: It's kind of a good thing that the Rangers are in such disarray (not really, but just go with it...), because had they fulfilled their potential and reached the World Series, there'd be a lot more cars in the parking lot at the ballpark, instead of the 38 food trucks and cr*pton of bands playing at the Texas Food Truckin' Fest on Friday and Saturday
Friday, October 25th: Head over to the Anatole's Media Grill + Bar for a five-courser paired with Firestone Walker. Beer-braised short ribs are involved. Call ahead to RSVP
Awesome Beer Dinner Option No. 2: Pappas Bros. is doing a Goose Island-paired din-din with roasted pheasant, scallops, and lamb ragu
Hotel St. Germain is doing a "Hidden Cities" wine dinner, wherein there's a treasure hunt, actual artifacts from 30 cities that were buried, flooded, and forgotten, plus plenty of eats like pomegranate duck
Sunday, October 27th: Guess who's back, back again, Oishii's back (after a year of rebuilding following its 2012 fire), tell a friend
Tuesday, October 29th The Oceanaire's hosting a six-course wine and oyster bacchanalia w/EIGHT wines and TWELVE different oysters on the half shell (turtle power). Call ahead to reserve a spot, seats are $65 per.
