Enjoy Kevin Hart show, Arthur Miller’s 'The Price' Wednesday


1. Jarrott Productions’ “The Price”

7:30 p.m. Oct. 19-22. $18-$25. Trinity Street Theatre, 901 Trinity St. jarrottproductions.com.

Jarrott Productions presents Arthur Miller’s classic about the cost of furniture — and the cost of keeping secrets. Some critics have hailed “The Price” as Miller’s best work, surpassing even the more well-known “Death of a Salesman.” The production stars Scott Galbreath, Amanda Cooley Davis, Rick Smith and B. Iden Payne Awards 2016 Best Actor nominee David R. Jarrott. Free garage and street parking is available Wednesday evenings.

2. J.D. McPherson at Continental Club

10 p.m. Oct. 19. $22. 1315 S. Congress Ave. continentalclub.com.

On two albums with Rounder Records, rising Tulsa, Okla., star McPherson has dug deep into the roots of classic 1950s rock ’n’ roll, which makes his show — he’s had three days to play there — a perfect fit tor the old-school-cool aesthetic of the Continental. McPherson plays at 10 p.m., with Austin musician Whitney Rose, who calls her genre “vintage-pop-infused, neo-traditional country,” following at midnight. — Peter Blackstock

3. “Kevin Hart: What Now?”

7:15 and 10 p.m. Oct. 19. $10.75. Alamo Lakeline, 14028 US-183, and other locations. drafthouse.com/austin/show/kevin-hart-what-now.

Last August, comedian Kevin Hart went from superstar to full-tilt rock-star with a record-setting performance in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field. It was the first time a comedian ever performed to a sold-out crowd at a football stadium. Now, you can revisit the historic night and, most importantly, laugh along with thousands of fellow fans with this new concert film, which features his kinetic set as well as a few fun cinematic extras.

4. “The Ticket: A Live Recording and Presidential Debate Watch Party”

6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 19. Free. KLRU Studio 6A, 2405-B Whitis Ave. facebook.com/events/172307826551918/.

Root and Philpott will kick off the evening with a review of the latest news from the campaign trail. Then, following the live recording, the third presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will air. The recording begins at 7 p.m., and the debate starts at 8 p.m.

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...

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'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...

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.
