Johnson's Backyard Garden hustles and flows, Hops & Grain has a new friend, and more in today's food news.

We are the types who would pedicab to our Lyfts because the Downtown hills are just so high, but far be it for us to prevent other folks from developing leg muscles. Tickets are currently open for Johnson’s Backyard Garden’s fall potluck and 5K Harvest Hustle, held October 24 at their Garfield Farm. The $40 race ticket gets you a t-shirt and bragging rights, plus admission into the potluck later in the afternoon. Potluck-only admission is $5 with a dish and $10 without. Kids are free at both events.

Hops & Grain Brewing is gearing up to have a permanent food truck at their tasting room and brewery Thursdays-Sundays, courtesy of Rena and Steve Schrader of Hi Hat Public House. We haven’t seen the menu at Kick Drum Burgers, but we are guessing they will serve an assortment of wheatgrass shots, uni rolls, and petit fours. Whatever the menu (we just wish they would give us some clue), it’s sure to go great with H&G’s award-winning A Pale Mosaic, available in cans soon.

Winebelly, a word we like to say after finishing a bottle of Rioja, will be hosting a wine dinner with pioneering Texas winery McPherson Cellars on Tuesday, Sept. 29. Winemaker and owner Kim McPherson will be on hand as you eat paired courses like duck confit and frisée, roasted venison, and tuna crudo. Tickets are $56.
