• Pie man Bud Royer alerted me to a blog post about an upcoming local pie competition that I'm eager to share, but the details were still relatively sketchy at press time. What I can tell you is that after 10 years in the San Francisco Bay area and a couple of years in New York City, the Pie-Off ATX will be held in Austin this year "to bring like-minded pie bakers together for a jamboree of filling creativity, crust integrity, and overall baked-goodedness." Details about the competition are being released gradually at www.pieoff.blogspot.com. I'm fascinated and plan to whip up a pie and attend. Saturday, March 21, 2-6:30pm.
• Hill Country Pasta House (3519 RR 620 N., 266-9445, www.hillcountrypasta.com) hosts a multicourse dinner featuring pairings with wines from Driftwood Vineyards. Reservations are necessary. While you're there, ask them about their new appetite stimulus packages. Thursday, March 26, 7pm.
