The Austin Food & Wine Festival is this weekend's mega food-event, but there's plenty of other fun (and cheaper) options. Here's some other great food and drink-related events this weekend, for those looking to get goofy with beer or check out a new brunch spot.
OFF-CENTERED FILM FEST — Do you love beer, cinema, and/or yacht rock? The Alamo Drafthouse's Off-Centered film festival runs this weekend, co-hosted by collaborators Dogfish Head Brewery, with a nautical theme. Tonight's event is a Dogfish Head Beer Feast featuring The Life Aquatic, and they're throwing a freakin' boat party tomorrow at 1 P.M. All screenings will feature rare Dogfish Head beers. [Eaterwire]
