    Banger's 8th Anniversary Celebration

    Though it's not the epic sausage and beer festival of anniversary parties past – gee, thanks, 'ronasBanger's is celebrating their eighth birthday with an opportunity to make your house a sausage house and your backyard a beer garden. And, listen: They ain't kidding around. Their DIY Anniversary Box includes eight sausages for you to cook at home (choose among five varieties), a good pile of sauerkraut, grain mustard, and a mess o' pickles – and all of that is exclusively Banger's-made in-house. And they're including buns for those dogs. And it comes with a commemorative, pandemic-inspired, eight-year bandanna. Bonus: You can aid and abet your sausage-grilling, outside-partying joy with various specialty beer packs, and you know Banger's has some rare goodness in stock for this deal. Note: Order now, pick up July 31-Aug. 2.

    Suerte Taqueria: ¡Puro Pinche Pollo!

    Suerte Taqueria continues the monthlong celebration of that tastiest of yardbirds, the pollo. (Note for the monoglots: That's a chicken, mmmkay?) Each meal features a different half-a-chicken each week and comes with two seasonal sides, and it's enough for two people, and is available for dine-in or carry-out alongside Suerte’s regular menu. Up next, it's Mr. James Chicken Adobo en Stylo Filipino (Aug. 3-9), and, finally, People's Choice (Aug. 10-15) among the diverse styles they've been offering. Hey, you're a people – treat yourself and help them choose!
    Through Aug. 9

    The Thinkery: Food for Thought

    Here's an online event that celebrates our local food and beverage culture while also raising money to support the Thinkery's kid-friendly, generally fascinating, science-related program activities. It's an "engaging and informative" 60-minute program featuring local culinary celebrities, with Aaron Franklin talking barbecue, the folks of Still Austin Whiskey Co. giving a tour of their distillery, superstar baker Abby Love revealing the secrets of great sourdough, Tavel Bristol-Joseph exploring the sugary chemistry of making your own honeycomb, and, oh, Kevin Fink and Sheena Moore and Daniela Martinez. Whoa, right? And the whole thing's hosted by John & Kendall Antonelli of that local cheese shop you may have heard about. Bonus: There's a "raise-the-paddle" auction, a silent auction, and a raffle drawing, all with incredible prizes. (Like, you ever dream of having Uchi's Tyson Cole come over to your house and serve you and your guests the best sushi? This dream could come true.)
    Sat., Aug. 8, 7pm. $200.
