FORECAST: ‘Critical’ fire danger in Hill Country, ‘elevated’ danger in Austin this afternoon

Things to do Monday, July 25


“The Steadfast Tin Soldier.” From the creative minds of Allen Robertson and Damon Brown of the “Biscuit Brothers” band comes a brand-new family-friendly musical based on the classic fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Opens Monday. Multiple shows through Aug. 13. Rollins Studio Theater, Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Drive. $12. 512-474-5664, — Jeanne Claire van Ryzin


Emily King at Parish. With a silky voice, stylish sophistication and an expansive aesthetic, King’s music is well-suited to this era of soulful fusion. The progeny of a jazz singing-duo, King grew up in New York immersed in the city’s vibrant music scene. Her 2015 album “The Switch” was a collection of sweeping emotional declarations, graceful meditations and surprisingly funky grooves. With the 2016 release of a new deluxe edition of the album, her career is taking flight and this is likely your last chance to catch her in such a small venue. PJ Morton opens. $16. 7 p.m. doors Monday. 214 E. Sixth St. — Deborah Sengupta Stith


Lisa Brawn at Yard Dog Art Gallery. Brawn’s “¿Quién Es Más Macho? Wes Anderson vs. the Wild Birds of Texas” is on view for one more weekend this month, so don’t miss the colorful pieces of this returning Calgary artist. She has set up carved and painted woodcut portraits of Wes Anderson movie characters and birds of Texas in playful showdowns. Each of the pieces are eye-catching on their own, but you’ll be lured in by the idea of these fun unlikely match-ups. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday through July 31. 1510 S. Congress Ave. 512-912-1613,


“Vietnam: Evidence of War” at the LBJ Presidential Library. It’s the last week to check out this exhibit, which explores how the Vietnam War and its legacy were experienced. The exhibit showcases an impressive array of sources: soldiers and veterans, politicians and constituents, reporters and photojournalists, and advocates and protesters. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through July 31. $3-$8. 2313 Red River


De La Terre dinner series. Two Austin chefs from the Uchi and Odd Duck restaurant groups, Lori Bergeron and Anthony Nicaj, are offering a dinner series every other Monday. A ticket gets you a 10- to 12-course tasting menu, featuring local produce, foraged ingredients, and homemade pastas, bread and cheese. The menu, paired with beer or wine depending on the ticket option you choose, will change out regularly. 7 p.m. Monday. $97.43-$119.75. Foreign & Domestic, 306 E. 53rd St. 512-653-9535,

Coming up

In celebration, the bar will be hosting special live entertainment from DJ Fideo, Chandler and the Bings, and the Mighty Beast starting at 6 p.m. Guests can enjoy free Gus’ Fried Chicken and candy from the self-serve candy bar, as well as endless drink specials all night. The first 50 guests to arrive will also receive a Rattle Inn swag bag. 5 p.m. doors Thursday. Free. 600 Nueces St.

The rustic French dessert that one-ups a pancake - and it's healthful
The rustic French dessert that one-ups a pancake - and it's healthful

Like some French-country dishes, a clafoutis (klah-foo-TEE) sounds like something fancy and complicated, but it's actually homey and easy to make. The fruit-laden dessert pancake is elegant in its simplicity - glorious, golden brown and sugar dusted. And nearly all it entails is making a basic pancake batter, pouring it into a pie dish, adding the...

Mediterranean diet is healthy. But is it Mediterranean?

There is the Mediterranean Diet. And then there is the Mediterranean Diet. The Mediterranean Diet is said to be one of the most healthful in the world. It emphasizes fruit and vegetables while minimizing red meat. It features plenty of fish, along with poultry. It uses oil instead of butter, and herbs and spices instead of salt. It encourages exercise...
One-pot meals pack a lot of flavor in a single dish
One-pot meals pack a lot of flavor in a single dish

“Bowls!” is the title that shouted at me one morning when I got to work, where cookbooks seem to magically appear at my desk overnight. The new book by Molly Watson perfectly explains why one-pot dishes and meals have become all the rage. They’ve got everything in a meal in one place. Somehow, throwing together a mish-mash of flavorful...
Tasty menu helped bring Quality Distribution's headquarters to Tampa

I'm not sure whether to credit the mushroom ricotta stuffed paccheri pasta or wild boar lasagna at the Cena restaurant. Such tasty Italian fare, it can be argued, is at least one good reason a billion-dollar company based in a Tampa office park near Interstate 75 committed to relocate its headquarters and 250 employees to downtown Tampa's Channel District...
The hot new trend in food is literal garbage
The hot new trend in food is literal garbage

Flour milled from discarded coffee fruit. Chips made from juice pulp. Vodka distilled from strawberries that nobody seems to want. At one point not so long ago, such waste-based products were novelties for the Whole Foods set. But in the past three years, there's been an explosion in the number of start-ups making products from food waste, according...
