Dine and drink at a special food truck dinner experience


Dining

St. Elmo Brewing and Soursop Beer Dinner with LeRoy and Lewis Barbecue. Two of Austin’s most promising food trucks, Soursop and LeRoy and Lewis, have created a four-course dinner that masterfully fuses their two cuisines. Paired with beers from St. Elmo Brewing — including one brewed especially for the dinner, a Sichuan Saison — the collaborative effort mixes Southeast Asian flavors from Soursop with elements of smoke from barbecue-focused LeRoy and Lewis. The creative courses include items like smoked duck and foie dumplings. 6 p.m. June 19. $75. St. Elmo Brewing, 440 E. St. Elmo Road. meatandbeer.brownpapertickets.com.

Eat Your Way Through History. Learn about the evolving cuisine of African-Americans, from slavery to freedom, with acclaimed children’s author and chef Angela Medearis. This introductory Lunch and Learn Series luncheon will feature African, Caribbean, Texan and Southern cuisine, with menu items such as Caribbean jerk chicken and sweet potato cornbread. The culinary history lecture will begin at 1:30 p.m. 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 19. $20. The George Washington Carver Museum, 1165 Angelina St. facebook.com/events/1496294497107169.

Music

“All Over the Map” book release party with Shinyribs and Carolyn Wonderland at Continental Club. Two of Austin’s most passionate musical acts help former American-Statesman writer Michael Corcoran celebrate his updated and expanded edition of “All Over the Map: True Heroes of Texas Music,” published last month on UNT Press. Shawn Sahm and Brennen Leigh also are scheduled to appear. $10. 9:30 p.m. June 19. 1315 S. Congress Ave. continentalclub.com. (A book-signing event precedes the show from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. across the street at the Austin Motel; those who buy a book there get into the show for free.) — Peter Blackstock

Film

Jo’s Monday Movie Night. It’s an Adam Sandler summer at the downtown location of Jo’s Coffee. Join the shop every Monday to watch some of the best Sandler flicks, including “Happy Gilmore” this time. The 1996 film is about a diehard hockey fan who discovers he might actually have real talent at another sport — golf. He gets involved with the sport when he decides to participate in a golf tournament to help out his grandmother financially. 7 to 10 p.m. June 19. Free. 242 W. Second St. facebook.com/events/1487523417952375.

Art

Mexic-Arte Museum: “Sebastián: The Geometry of Space and Time.” The show, in its final week, examines the artist Sebastián’s (born Enrique Carbajal Gonzalez) artistic practices in relation to mathematical concepts that inform his designs and sculptures. Sebastián, a world-renowned Mexico City sculptor, developed his own artistic language, incorporating science, mathematics and symbolism to create each original piece. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. 419 Congress Ave. mexic-artemuseum.org.

Coming up

The Institution Theater’s “Immigrants: The Musical, Part One.” The original production is a chance for the cast to tell their story, “Hamilton”-style, through an improvised musical inspired by their varied backgrounds: Dominican Republic, India, Ireland, Nigeria, the Philippines and Vietnam. Each of them has personal experiences to pull from, guided by the audience, into a tapestry of what it truly means to be American — or at least try to blend in. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday through July 8. $7-$12. 3708 Woodbury Drive. theinstitutiontheater.com.

That CANNOT be a good sign.” We are smarter now (more or less) but eclipses still hold a level of fascination. As we...
