Things To Do

Upcoming Events

Starting today, Molina's Cantina is hosting a month-long celebration in honor of its 70th anniversary. In fact, Mayor Parker proclaimed today "Molina's Cantina Day" to mark the occasion, something which Molina's is celebrating with food and drink specials all day long. The restaurant has also introduced a new margarita to mark their anniversary: The 1941, and it will be offering samples of the beverage all day today.

Throughout the month, check in with Molina's on its Facebook and Twitter pages to find more specials, like limited-time-only menu specials featuring 1941-era pricing: cheese enchilada dinner for 50 cents, the #1 combo plate for just 60 cents, or chicken enchilada dinner for 70 cents.

Jenni's Noodle House on Post Oak will be hosting Kung Fu Movie Nights weekly through August 2. The movies, including classics like Drunken Master and Ong Bak, will start each Tuesday at 7 p.m. Order up, settle in and remember to BYOB.

If you made it to the Hats Off to Hospitality gala last weekend at Haven and got to taste Chef Michael Gaspard's pâté de foie gras, then you know how talented the man is. And although he's no longer at Brasserie 19, those who craving more of his food will be in for a treat when he serves up a special, one-night-only dinner at 13 Celsius.

The wine bar will be pairing five different wines with Gaspard's five-course meal, which will take place on August 1 at 7:30 p.m. for $65 per person. It's an intimate space, and the meal will likely sell out quickly, so be on the lookout for reservation details from 13 Celsius soon.

Got plans for this Fourth of July weekend? No? Then read on.

This weekend, Urban Harvest is celebrating Independence Day by honoring that finest of Fourth traditions: grilling out.

At the Eastside Farmers Market (3000 Richmond) tomorrow from 8 a.m. to noon, Chef German Mosquero from Ruggles Green will be on hand to demonstrate grilling techniques on his Japanese woodfire grill. And on Sunday, the Highland Village Farmers Market (2720 Suffolk) will be hosting Williams Sonoma in its Chef's Corner, demonstrating various grilling skills and offering visitors tastes of Tennessee-style and Argentinean-style barbecue.

And although there won't be any fireworks to be found this weekend, you can still check our Fourth of July listings for more scoop on where to party like a patriot.
