    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.

    Food Access Resources from SFC

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.
