Berryhill Baja Grill is offering its final Taco of the Month: the Mother Clucker. For the grand finale, chef Andrew Hradecky has taken a few things Houstonians love and presented then in taco form. The Mother Clucker features crisp and juicy fried chicken topped with queso, roasted tomato salsa and pico de gallo. All of this gets wrapped inside a fresh, warm flour tortilla before being devoured by you. The taco is available at all Berryhill locations now through the end of the month, Monday, November 30.
On Tuesday, November 10, beginning at 6 p.m., Revival Market, 550 Heights, will be throwing a Latte Art Throwdown to benefit the GV Coffee Trailer Campaign. The new coffee trailer has created a Kickstarter page in the hope of bringing locally roasted beans, creamy Vietnamese café sua da, teas, freshly baked pastries and tasty Vietnamese fare to the streets of Houston. Baristas from coffee shops around Houston will be competing and creating works of art with hot, steamy milk and Greenway espresso starting at 7 p.m. Beer and Vietnamese food made by the GV Coffee team will also be available, so come hungry.
On Wednesday, November 11, celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, with a traditional Diwali feast at Kiran’s Restaurant & Bar, 4100 Westheimer. The dinner will be offered anytime between 5 and 10 p.m. for $45 per guest and $25 for children under the age of 12 (children ages five and under are complimentary). Enjoy traditional delights like dahi poori chaat, paneer kadai and pistachio kheer.

On Wednesday, November 18 at 7 p.m., Caracol, 2200 Post Oak, will be hosting a special wine dinner aptly named "Shared Colors – Italian Wine Meets Mexican Cuisine."
