TREATY OAK DISTILLING: FISH TALES & COCKTAILS One of our favorite adult-yet-family-friendly wonderlands out in the Hill Country teams up with outdoor apparel company Duck Camp to offer a fine afternoon of fishing and cocktails that’ll benefit the Texas Coastal Conservation Association. But it’s not just about fishing. There’s also a cooking class and lunch that’ll show you how to properly clean and prepare a fish, a fly-fishing beginner class (with a map of the best places to fly-fish in Central Texas), and a whiskey tasting of all three Treaty Oak expressions (Ghost Hill Texas Bourbon, Red Handed Bourbon, and Red Handed Rye). Yeah, these guys are serious, as we've said; but, lest you think they’re too serious, we’re obliged to tell you that the day’s special cocktail comes with a garnish of Swedish Fish. Sat., June 22, 12:30-3pm. (2019) Treaty Oak Distilling, 16604 Fitzhugh Rd., Dripping Springs. $55-110. www.treatyoakdistilling.com

Sunday 23

EMMER & RYE: AMERICAN DINER BRUNCH Follow the argument along with us: 1) Emmer & Rye is one of the best restaurants in this city; 2) brunch there is always @%#! incredible; 3) the newest brunch menubecause they change it every three months – features their version of classic American diner fare, resulting in such delectables as the patty melt (with Texas Black Angus, caramelized onion, Thousand Island dressing, American cheese, and romaine on rye), the Say When, Hun (yeasted waffles, chocolate shavings, whipped cultured cream, and fruit), and more; and 4) the staff will be decked out in uniforms that match the theme. Thus, the logical conclusion: Not something you wanna miss out on, n’est-ce pas, citizen? Sundays through Sept. 29 Emmer & Rye, 51 Rainey #110, 512/366-5530. www.emmerandrye.com
