This three-day weekend showcases the seafood, wine, music, art, recreation, and hospitality of the Texas Gulf Coast with sip-and-stroll tastings, restaurant dinners, educational seminars, and cooking demonstrations. Events will be held in Rockport restaurants and at the Saltwater Pavilion on Rockport Beach. Fri.-Sun., Feb. 1-3. Get event tickets or a Coastal Pass ($150) online.
Super Bowl weekend is the perfect time to try offerings from Hoover's new barbecue trailer, located directly across Manor Road from the restaurant and open daily from 11am-7pm. Load up on Austex ($14 per dozen) or Jamaican Jerk ($16 per dozen) wings, Game Day packs – the San Francisco ($49) or Baltimore Raven-ous ($53.50) – to feed a hungry crowd of six, or get brisket, turkey, pork loin, and house sausage by the pound. Pre-order by Feb. 1 for really good deals.
