For such a small country, Belgium is loaded with claims to fame. Many countries would be happy merely to be renowned for their chocolate and lace, but the Belgians know what really counts in life: booze. Belgian beer is the cream of the crop, keeping tongues, tummies and livers happy across the globe with quality brands such as Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and Leffe. What's better than drinking Belgian beer? Eating it, of course. Sign up for Sur La Table's Belgian beer cooking course and learn how to make Stella Artois steamed lobster and other tasty treats. The course takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Sur La Table, 4527 Travis St. Registration is $55. Call 214-219-4404.
Fri., Oct. 6, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
