CENTRAL MARKET COOKING CLASSES Check out the CM Cooking School for a full slate of classes covering everything from savories to sweets, from paella to pork to pomegranate au gratin.

Also, optional wine pairings. (You already know that Zagat's tagged Thurwachter as a 30 Under 30 chef, right? And that Erales was recently crowned "prince of pork" in the Cochon555 culinary competition?) This is sure to be a meal irresistible to all but vegetarians. Mon., July 23, 6 & 8:30pm Intero, 2612 E.

GUILD HAPPY HOUR: EXTENDED MENU So, serving up exquisite sea-centric fare for dinner isn't enough for Chef Sterling Ridings, now he's got to increase the goodness of Guild's happy hour with lavender-brined fried chicken, a vegan summer "ceviche," clam beignets, and other specials? The answer – we say, happily licking our chops and taking another sip of their new Kentucky Mule cocktail – the answer is, "Yes, he does." Clam beignets? Happiest hour. Guild, 3800 N.

24 DINER: BELL'S BREWERY DINNER OK, so if some of the best pizza in this while town can come outta Detroit (see here), then who's to say equally excellent beer can't come outta Kalamazoo? Here's a dinner to prove it can, with the 24 Diner team serving up a fine four-courser of roast quail, pork consommé, seared salmon, and cherry clafoutis to accompany a quartet of lipsmacking pours from Bell's Brewery. We knew there was a reason our tastebuds have been whispering M-i-c-h-i-g-a-n to us since summer started … Wed., July 25, 6:30pm. (2018) 24 Diner, 600 N. Lamar, 512/472-5400. $45. www.24diner.com

Mind you, you'll have to get the whiskey elsewhere, to complete the sweet-and-boozy recipes; but maybe that's why it's always good to have a bottle of Monkey Shoulder in your cabinet, eh?
