Do you have $600 and nothing else to do? This evening, III Forks is hosting a six-course, 100-point wine dinner. Courtesy of Guy Stout, master sommelier, the dinner will feature wines that cost a lot more than the ones they sell at Trader Joe's. They may even taste better. Reservations are required, because you can't just waltz into a $600 wine dinner like it's Dairy Queen and expect service, apparently.

Let me guess. You don't like okra. Yeah, neither does anyone else. But somehow this benefit cook-off has made it to year six. Oh wait, we know how. Because it's got music, beer and people who know their way around this much-maligned vegetable. Get your mucilaginous veggie-eating on and see who will be crowned “Okrapalooza Champion of the World" for $45. All the money raised from Okrapalooza goes to the Promise of Peace Community Garden, so put your qualms aside: It's slime-time.

Chef Tiffany Derry of Top Chef fame will prepare the menu at Cafe Momentum's latest pop-up. This being Texas and also the first Sunday of the regular NFL season, Momentum will honor the occasion by airing the Cowboys game live. Amazing food and watching giant men hurl their bodies through space and time over an inflated flap of pig skin? Heck yeah. Tickets are $100.
