    Austin Fermentation Festival

    This is a free educational event that celebrates all things fermented in Central Texas and features hourly workshops, dishes from local chefs and vendors, and an expanded farmers' market. Can it be fermented? It'll likely be showcased here in all its tasty, nutritious glory. (Note: Beveragewise, that means cider, mead, and kombucha!) Also – because this is Austin, right? – there'll be live music throughout the day. Bonus: proceeds will benefit the Texas Farmers’ Market Ag Producer Support Fund.
    Sun., Oct. 20, 10am-4pm. Free, but RSVP.

    The Butcher's Ball

    Rockin' Star Ranch out near Brenham – perfect for a daytrip – is once again the site for this fourth annual culinary event that features more than 50 chefs, butchers, farmers, ranchers, educators, bartenders, and other leaders in the Texas food industry. (Bramwell Tripp from Loro and Foreign & Domestic's Sarah Heard & Nathan Lemley are just three of the Austin-based chefs.) There'll be so much going on at this carnivore-centric celebration – the Golden Cleaver competition, a public vote for the “best bite” of the day, the Open Fire Farm & Ranch Showcase, top chef cooking demonstrations, butchery demonstrations from two of the state’s top butchers (Central Texas Meat Collective's Julia Poplawsky and Jack Matusek of Raw Republic Meats), panel discussions, even kids’ activities – that you might forget for a tiny second you're surrounded by Texas ranchland. But live music will bring you back to the beautiful environs and you'll sip your expertly made cocktail and think, "Yes, this is exactly where I want to be." And, bonus, this all goes to benefit the Houston-based nonprofit Urban Harvest.
    Sun., Oct. 20, 11am-5pm. $100-250 ($30, ages 12 and younger).

    Star Bar: Hail Mary

    It’s been voted one of the top ten Bloody Marys in America, and now Star Bar’s Hail Mary is back on the third Sunday of each month. The heaping cocktail is a collab with on-site food trailer Schaller’s Stube and features their glorious fried chicken sandwich – plus mini sausages, cheese, powdered donuts, chocolate donuts, peppers, pickles, tomatoes, and olives. You know what that is? That’s a meal in a glass, tell you what. This gig is usually sold out like whoa, though, so better make DM reservations via Star Bar’s Facebook or Instagram ASAP.
    Sun., March 15, 11am-3pm. $35.
