Houston Press Craft Beer Hoppy Hour @ MKT Bar Friday, 4-10 p.m. 1001 Austin St.

Once the work day is over, you and your friends are heading to the Houston Press Craft Beer Hoppy Hour at MKT Bar inside Phoenicia. Celebrate the end of the work week with a brand-new menu of craft beer and food pairings from Phoenicia Specialty Foods and MKT Bar starting at $10. You can also enjoy $4 draft beers and $5 wine starting at 4 p.m. The best Happy Hour gets better because from 7 to 10 p.m., you and your friends can keep the party going with live music from DJ Klinch.

Mark it on your calendar because you're coming and you'll be pretty happy you did.

Feast's Final Sunday Roast Sunday, 12:30-2:30 p.m. 219 Westheimer

Make your reservation as soon as possible to dine at Feast for the Final Sunday Roast. As we all know by now, Feast will be closing its doors June 14, which is a little earlier than expected.

The final meal on Sunday afternoon, at just $19.95 per person, includes your choice of either roast loin of pork with roasted potatoes, parsnips, Brussels sprouts and garlic rutabaga, or a fish pie topped with a cheese-crusted leek mash and Brussels sprouts. Feast ends the meal perfectly with its English bread pudding. This is the last chance to dine on Sunday afternoon at Feast's Sunday Roast, so make sure you don't miss out on this opportunity.

First Annual Crawfish Boil at The Lodge Texas Tavern & BBQ Sunday, 2 p.m. 3130 S. Main

If you're unable to attend Feast's Final Sunday Roast, head out to The Lodge Texas Tavern & BBQ for its First Annual Crawfish Boil. At 2 p.m., Happy hour starts and crawfish is served for just $4.99/lb. Enjoy $3 draft beers, $2 domestic beers and $1.50 Lone Stars. Spend the afternoon eating crawfish, drinking beer and listening to live music from DJ Randy.

Cuisine Crawl @ Central Market Saturday, 11 a.m. 3815 Westheimer

If you're in the mood to try a lot of different foods (when is anyone not?), then reserve a spot in this Saturday's Cuisine Crawl, where you will visit four locations around Houston to satisfy your curious palate and appetite. For three hours, you'll be transported around town to sample food from each restaurant and location; Cuisine Crawl also offers various beer and wine selections throughout the tour. Reserve your spot on the tour by e-mailing cuisinecrawl@gmail.com.

Houston Chefs and Show Dogs @ James Coney Island ßtarting Saturday, June 1-30 All Houston James Coney Island Locations

Starting Saturday and running until the last day of the month, James Coney Island will kick off the Houston Chefs and Show Dogs series. Each month one Houston chef's hot dog creation will be featured at all James Coney Island locations in Houston. Chef Randy Evans of Haven will kick off the series during the month of June with his "Huntin' Dog" creation. This dog is made with all-Angus beef, sits in a jalapeño-cheese bun from Houston's Slow Dough Bread Company and is topped with Haven's Wild Boar Chile, onions, cilantro and chopped pickled jalapeño.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
