Here’s a look at this weekend's best culinary happenings:

Brunch Series at Weights + Measures
Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Monday and Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
2808 Caroline.


Brunch your way out of 2018 and into 2019 with a series of brunches at Weights + Measures, offered straight through the New Year. Dine on dishes such as house-smoked salmon toast, chocolate chip pancakes, Wagyu chilaquiles, roasted carrot pizza, and wood-grilled cheeseburgers. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Reservations are suggested. 

Close Out 2018 at The Hay Merchant
Saturday through Monday
1100 Westheimer


The Hay Merchant will be closing out 2018 by offering $3 beers on Saturday, December 29 through Monday, December 31. All drafts will be $3 all day long. Pair them with a Cease and Desist Burger for good measure.

Kolache Saturday at Revival Market
Saturday, 8 a.m. until sold out
550 Heights


Get ready for Kolache Saturday at Revival Market, when the neighborhood cafe and market will be serving up four flavors — kielbasa and cheddar, chicken sausage, spiced apple and cream cheese, and citrus marmalade with sweetened goat cheese. Get them from 8 a.m. until sold out for $2.75 a pop.

Discs and Donuts at Eureka Heights Brew Co.
Saturday, 10 a.m. to noon
941 West 18th


Discs and Donuts returns to Eureka Heights for one fun, pretty unproductive Saturday morning. Bring your own vinyl as DJ Party Boy spins the sweetest of jams alongside retro Saturday morning cartoons and doughnuts from Hugs & Donuts (get one free doughnut with each purchase).

Drag Brunch at Boheme
Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
307 Fairview

Head to Boheme for a Drag Brunch extravaganza. Chef Rishi Singh will be serving up brunch favorites — think brioche French toast, smoked brisket and eggs, and Filipino sausage croissant sandwiches — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with beats from DJ Athenz and a drag show from from noon to 4 p.m. Guests can also expect happy hour all day.
