Author appearance at BookPeople centers on the yogurt shop murders

1. Beverly Lowry at BookPeople

7 p.m. Oct. 18. Free. 603 N. Lamar Blvd. 512-472-5050,

Prolific local author Lowry is discussing and signing her latest true crime novel, “Who Killed These Girls?: Cold Case.” This new book explores a horrifying crime close to home: the chilling, violent murders of four young girls in late 1991 at an Austin yogurt shop. Through many twists and turns, Lowry gives us the whole story behind the murders and the subsequent investigations that now, more than 20 years later, are still ongoing.

2. Art Science Gallery’s “Meet the Beetles.”

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 18, 20 and 22; 1 to 6 p.m. Oct. 19 and Oct. 21. 916 Springdale Road, Building 2 #102.

It’s the last weekend of this show that puts an unexpected subject in the spotlight. Beetles — yes, the insects, not the band — are more interesting than they might seem, and this group exhibit aims to prove that. With their works, the 15 featured artists are showcasing the diversity of the amazing insect that Darwin admired. The artists, hailing from the U.S., Spain and Italy, provide a look at everything from the beetle’s behavior to its habitat, agricultural significance and natural history.

3. Lydia Loveless at Antone’s

8:30 p.m. Oct. 18. $15. 305 E. Fifth St.

Alt-country siren Loveless and her band lit up several venues during South by Southwest last spring, building on previous promising releases with strong new material that surfaced in August on the Bloodshot Records album “Real.” She seems poised for a big breakthrough, with a documentary film from director Gorman Bechard screening in select markets and festivals this fall. Will Courtney & the Wild Bunch open. — Peter Blackstock

4. Artists for Advocacy at Juliet Ristorante

5 p.m. Oct. 18. $25. 1500 Barton Springs Road. 512-479-1800,

Local artists will be showcasing their work on Juliet’s beautiful outdoor patio and donating a portion of their sales to the Texas Advocacy Project. All you have to do is get ready to go shopping and enjoy bites, cocktails and wines from the Italian restaurant. The featured artists include Priscilla Martinez of Joyarte Jewelry, Zoë Comings, Erica Wildman, Jayshree Vakil, Claudia Reese of Cera-Mix Studio and Rochelle Rae of Rae Cosmetics.

The secret to a great potluck? It’s not the food

The most elaborate potluck I ever went to was my own wedding, to which each guest brought a dish in lieu of gifts. We feasted on truffled pea soup and caviar tea sandwiches. At the other end of the potluck spectrum was my daughter’s second-grade graduation breakfast, a festive hodgepodge of child-made scones, store-bought red velvet doughnuts...

Why it's so hard to figure out when bottled and canned beer is fresh

Before craft beer aficionado Matthew Starr buys a new IPA or Pilsener at his favorite beer store, he picks up the can to check for a date. "I will look for a date code 100 percent of the time," the 35-year-old Washington attorney said. "I've had too many bad experiences over the years with out-of-date beer that I'm not willing to gamble...
We taste-tested 10 hot dogs. Here are the best.

The New York Times Food department hasn’t taken a close look at hot dogs in some time. Back when hot dogs were on every list of foods to avoid — alarming additives, questionable cuts, salt and fat galore — home cooks didn’t want to know too much about what was in them. But cooks are different now, and so are hot dogs. We want...

Pizzas that taste just like summer

It doesn’t take much to transform a workaday weekday into one that feels like a notable weekend. The smell of marinated meat searing on the grill makes Wednesday night feel like Friday night. The vision of a crisp, cool salad with fruit and greens from the farmers market turns back the clock from Monday to Sunday afternoon.  Few would argue...
