October Is Still the Busiest Month

There are still more food events for Sunday, Oct. 19

The second annual Texas Wine and Song Festival will showcase the best in regional wines, music, and food at the new Copper Tank Events Center (504 Trinity). Musical entertainment will be provided by the Gourds, Carolyn Wonderland, and Suzanna Choffel, and representatives of several Texas wineries and distilleries will be on hand pouring their finest vintages and providing seminars on wine, mixology, and food-and-wine pairing. Some of Austin's top restaurants will be dishing out samples of delicious signature dishes. Proceeds from this fun event will benefit the Sims Foundation and the newly formed Texas Wine & Song Foundation, a nonprofit providing scholarships and grants for the study of Texas enology and viticulture. Tickets cover the cost of 10 food-and-wine samplings and are $30 in advance at www.texaswineandsong.com or $35 at the door. Sunday, Oct. 19, 3-10pm…

All that is required is a trip to the Web at RestaurantWeekAustin.com to check out the complete list of participating local restaurants and then a reservation for a delectable three-course prix fixe meal for either $25 or $35, depending on the price range of the restaurant. This weeks dates are Oct. 19-22. Bon appetit!
