The Sustainable Food Center forms a supergroup, Wheatsville comes to your door, and more in today's food news.

Who says one is the loneliest number? To mark the one year anniversary of their fancy new digs, Suzi’s China Grill will be offering $1 appetizers (including faves like rice paper rolls and sesame scallops) during dinner service, Oct. 19-21. After letting your stomach settle, head upstairs to Rebel Pizza Bar for their late night happy hour (Sunday-Thursday, 9pm-close) for half off 10” pizzas, $5 glasses of wine and Rebel-Ritas, and $2 off pints and apps.

Tickets are now available for the Sustainable Food Center’s chef series at La Condesa. Using produce from the SFC Farmer’s Market, Nathan Lemley (parkside), Rick Lopez (La Condesa), Tim Love (Lonesome Dove), Amanda Rockman (South Congress Hotel), Eric Silverstein (Peached Tortilla), and Jacob Weaver (Juliet) are creating a mighty tasty multi-course tasting menu. Table tickets are already sold out, so act quickly for individual seats.

Sometimes when we are feeling dreamy, we like to imagine the meet cute that brought Lick Honest Ice Creams and Mockingbird Domestics together for a home goods collection. Was it at a book store? A roller derby? A rally for Bernie Sanders? However they came together, the pairing has yielded some adorable ice cream bowls and spoons. Be sure to stop by Mockingbird tomorrow to check them out and to attend a Lick ice cream workshop with Genius Gin (tickets here). And on Tuesday, Oct. 20, stop by Lick’s South Lamar flagship for a free scoop celebrating their fourth anniversary. 7-10pm.
By now, the news that Sharon Mays is bringing her drive-through salad concept Baby Greens back to Austin has circulated all over town, but we just want to say it again because the news makes us really, really happy.
