    Austin Mac & Cheese Festival

    Talk about a perfect mash-up of comfort food and haute cuisine! This celebration of the childhood/dormroom staple takes that familiar cheese-covered-pasta goodness to the highest level possible without giving the noodles a hit off Willie's Own Bong. Not only a local phenomenon, this event is the start of the national Mac & Cheese Festival tour, with chefs from Portland, Seattle, Dallas, San Francisco, Denver, Philadelphia, and more joining with ATX locals in serving you up bowl after tasty bowl of what certain Kraft executives must have wet dreams about. Note: Tickets go on sale Sept. 1.
    Sun., Nov. 11, 11am-5pm. $45-90.

    Big Medium: War Tuba Recital

    It reflects well on the whole Tito's Prize thing, we think, that this year's recipient is one of the most interesting and relentless, one of the most community-oriented, artists in our creativity-glutted town. Whether you're an aficionado of the possibilities of visual art or the unexplored potential of musical instruments, Steve Parker's latest confluence of those two realms will delight your senses and inspire much thought.
    Reception: Fri., Oct. 19, 7-10pm
