    Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival

    The heat is on, citizen! Hundreds of restaurants, commercial bottlers, and home cooks battle for hot sauce glory across a tasty variety of categories – in a day replete with food and drinks, cooking demos with top chefs, and ice cream. The public (that's you) will vote for favorites, and our panel of celebrity judges will weigh in on the finals. Names will be made, careers will be launched, destinies – yea, verily – will be forged! This is, we mean, the biggest and baddest hot sauce event of the year. And, what, you want live music, too? OK, how about a full lineup of greats – with Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, among others? Exactly. Proceeds benefit the Central Texas Food Bank. And this link right here brings more information than there are tortillas in Terlingua.
    Sun., Aug. 25, 11am-5pm. Free with donation.

      Emmer & Rye: American Diner Brunch

      Follow the argument along with us: 1) Emmer & Rye is one of the best restaurants in this city; 2) brunch there is always @%#! incredible; 3) the newest brunch menubecause they change it every three months – features their version of classic American diner fare, resulting in such delectables as the patty melt (with Texas Black Angus, caramelized onion, Thousand Island dressing, American cheese, and romaine on rye), the Say When, Hun (yeasted waffles, chocolate shavings, whipped cultured cream, and fruit), and more; and 4) the staff will be decked out in uniforms that match the theme. Thus, the logical conclusion: Not something you wanna miss out on, n’est-ce pas, citizen?

      Pitchfork Pretty: Rum for Your Life

      It’s not always about the goddamn tiki, is it? No!

With rotating cocktails, flights, and rare finds sure to delight even the most jaded palate, this August at Pitchfork Pretty is shaping up as the most spirited month of tippling in town.
