Pub Night @ Saint Arnold Brewery Friday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. 2000 Lyons
Pub Night is back at Saint Arnold Brewery! During this month's Pub Night the brewery will serve Bishop's Barrel No. 5, Divine Reserve No. 11, Pumpkinator 2013 and a special cask of Icon Blue, which is Brown Porter with hints of toasted coconut and vanilla. Pair any of these brews with some scrumptious bites from the kitchen, including the Jerk chicken sandwich and pulled pork nachos -- you know, greasy food. Along with the beer and food, you'll have the chance to purchase a Santo T-shirt directly from the T-shirt press; Burning Bones Press makes them for Saint Arnold and will be on-site to make a custom one for each guest. Remember, there's no entry fee for Pub Nights; drinks and food are purchased as individual items, just like you would do so at a bar.
Crawfish Cajun Friday @ Kemah Boardwalk Friday, 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. 215 Kipp Ave., Kemah
Hit up the Kemah Boardwalk tonight for some crawfish and live Zydeco music during Crawfish Cajun Friday. Landry's Inc.'s new crawfish food wagon will be serving up the mudbugs and boudin while Rusty Metoyer & Zydeco Krush provide the rockin' tunes for the evening. Purchase a pound and a half of crawfish for $11, then grab a beer from one of the concession stands for an excellent way to kick off the weekend.
Easter Bunny Food Truck Party @ My Food Park HTX Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 800 Hwy 6 South
Celebrate Easter a day early at My Food Park HTX. From 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., food trucks, including Blaze It Up, Skratch Food Truck and Les Ba'Get, will serve lunch and dinner for guests as they enjoy music from NuCreations and partake in various Easter activities. Bring the kids for an Easter egg hunt at 2 p.m. and have them take a picture with the Easter bunny. The food park will also host a movie night featuring the award-winning Disney animation film, Frozen, at 7:30 p.m.
Discovery Green Flea by Night @ Discovery Green Saturday, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. 1500 McKinney
Normally, the Discovery Green Flea Market occurs during the day on the third Saturday of each month, but this time it's at night. From 6 p.m. until 10 p.m., local vendors will sell their crafts, jewelry and other merchandise alongside food vendors and food trucks. Sample some wine from Pleasant Hill Winery, then grab a picanha (top sirloin) sandwich and guarana (Brazilian soft drink) from Churrasco To Go, followed by a cupcake or whoopie pie from What's Up, Cupcake? Enjoy these treats on-site, then take home organic cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil or fruit-infused balsamic vinegars from Texas Hill Country Olive Company; don't forget about the homemade salsa from Salinas Salsa Co.
Easter Bunny BAR HOP @ The League of Extraordinary Brewers Saturday to Sunday, 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. 907 Franklin St., Ste. 150
Join the folks from The League of Extraordinary Brewers on Saturday afternoon for an Easter pub crawl downtown. Dress like an Easter bunny, carrot, Easter egg... whatever suits your fancy. Meet at the League by 2 p.m. to get your map for the crawl and an Easter basket. As you "hop" to each stop you'll fill up your Easter basket with candy-filled eggs, drink specials and raffle tickets. The crawl costs $20 and will make stops at Little Dipper, El Big Bad, The Brewery Tap and Clutch City Squire. Keep your eyes out for Easter eggs, because the only way to get into the after party at the League and receive a free T-shirt is to collect an egg from each bar.
