Tuesday 6

GERALDINE'S DINNER MENU DEBUT At Geraldine’s in the Hotel Van Zandt, chefs Sergio Ledesma and Garrett Werley will debut their new collaborative dinner menu tonight – and it’ll boast such treasures as a tartare made with prime beef tenderloin, black garlic, fermented habanero lacto-aioli, umami yolk jam, pickled shimeji, sunchoke, and sourdough. Yet another good reason, we reckon, for dining Downtown. Tue., June 6, beginning at 5:30pm Geraldine's, 605 Davis, 512/476-4755.

RED BEANS AND RICELY YOURS, AUSTIN This community initiative, headed by Chris Cubas and Maris Clegg, is dedicated to providing free meals (of red beans and rice, andouille sausage, cornbread, fruit, dessert, and a drink) to Austinites in need. "On Tuesdays, we will provide a link to sign up for a free home-made meal delivered to you with safety in mind," goes their announcement on Facebook. "There is no judgment and the form is anonymous. If you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a hard time, we would like to make a small portion of your day a little bit better."
