Find out everything you could ever want to know about truffles straight from the truffle-master himself, and also enjoy a truffle cooking demonstration at the Plano location of Williams Sonoma. And who knows, maybe you'll finally find out what Nicki Minaj is rapping about.

s The only thing better than drinking is drinking with a purpose. The Deep Ellum Brewing Company is hosting a Drink Local, Give Global event on International World Water Day, which was created to promote awareness and to help get sustainably managed freshwater resources to the people that need them. For every $25 ticket purchased, a portion goes toward the cause. The ticket includes beer tastings, a brewery tour, live music, an obligatory commemorative beer glass and a sense of disproportionately large sense of altruism.
