American Craft Beer Week; Crawfish Get Pricey

SOUTH LAMAR — Head on over to The Highball for a Kentucky Derby viewing party at 3:00 p.m. May 7, where they'll be serving up Kentucky-style foodstuffs like Derby Pie Bars (tastes like chocolate pecan pie) and Hot Browns, "open-faced turkey, bacon and tomato sandwiches smothered in a cheesy yum yum sauce."

SOUTHEAST AUSTINIndependence is celebrating American Craft Beer Week in true Austin fashion on May 21 with live music and tasty alcoholic beer samples for those of legal age. $10 at the door; brewery concert fun begins at 7:00 p.m. [Independence Brewing via Craft Beer]

CRAWDADWIRE — Wondering why it seems like there are fewer restaurants offering crawfish boils this year? Probably because they're more expensive this season. The culprit: the current drought situation has forced places to transport the critters in from Louisiana. [KVUE]
