Austin's Best Food and Drink Events This Week

Dinner parties, farmer's markets, beer, wine, and more for the week of June 2, 2022

Thursday 2

DE NADA CANTINA: ANNIVERSARY ALL-DAY HAPPY HOUR Well, sure, when we turned one year old, we also celebrated with an all-day happy hour. But we were more about naps and strained carrots back then, tbh, whereas De Nada Cantina, that Eastside bastion of taco-forward deliciousness, will be featuring their usual happy hour food-and-drink specials nonstop – from 11am to 10pm. And if you know Thu., June 2, 11am-10pm De Nada Cantina, 4715 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/615-3555. denadacantina.com

Friday 3

STILL AUSTIN WHISKEY: HUCKLEBERRY POP-UP So, yeah, we did mention – in that recent cover story about the Yard on St. Elmo – how Still Austin is trying out different culinary concepts for their lovely courtyard, to maybe eventually settle on one to stick with for a while? Don't know if this indicates anything, but Davis Turner's Huckleberry crew will be at the Still this weekend, serving up their popular crab quesadillas, pimento cheese sandwiches, smash burgers, ceviche, and other favorites. Perfect foods to complement a whiskey cocktail, we say. Crab quesadillas and an expertly mixed Old Fashioned? Yes, please, we say. Fri.-Sat., June 3 & 4, noon-7pm Still Austin, 440 E. St. Elmo, 512/276-2700. stillaustin.com

Sunday 5

LA CONDESA: DRAG BRUNCH La Condesa's heralding this as "All Tequila, All Shade," but you just know there's gonna be some incredibly Mexilicious noms served up alongside the cocktails and queenly exuberance this coming Sunday, too. As sure as we almost made ourselves cringe by using the term "Mexilicious," this'll be a fine gustatory gig hosted by Austin's own Ritzy Bitz, presented by Tequila Tromba and Alkkemist Gin, with music from DJ Eriq Stylez – and a portion of the proceeds going to The Trevor Project. Sun., June 5, 11am. (2022) La Condesa, 400-A W. Second, 512/499-0300. $25. lacondesa.com/austin

WFF: TOAST OF TEXAS The Wine & Food Foundation's Toast of Texas is back and showcasing more wineries than ever, the popular sip-and-stroll-style event featuring three (air-conditioned!) tasting rooms with 30 different wineries represented, catering from Slab BBQ and Mi Paella, and one hell of a posh silent auction. (You might have missed that recent Texas Wine Auction debut, more's the pity, but now here's your next chance to sample some of the best.) Sun., June 5, 2-4:30pm. (2022) Star Hill Ranch, 15000 Hamilton Pool Road. $85. winefoodfoundation.org
