Six Great Dinner and Craft Beer Events for the Week, Including a Cooking Class You Shouldn't Miss

The Dallas dining and beer scene is hopping, but don't let that distract you too much because there's a cooking class tonight that you really shouldn't miss. No time to dilly-dally, let's get to it:

Wednesday, March 6 Co-author of the cookbook Bouchon Bakery, Sebastien Rouxel, is hosting a demonstration on classic French pastries, scones and other items featured in the cookbook, like a crepe cake and flan Parisien, at the Central Market on Lovers Lane tonight at 6:30. The price of the class is $80, but it also includes a copy of the book. Register now. Let's do this!

FireWheel Brewing of Rowlett is hosting a keep-the-glass and meet-the-founder party tonight at Craft and Growler at 6 p.m. If you buy a pint of FireWheel's coffee porter or Texas pale, you can take home your very own fancy mason jar -- with their name on it, of course. And brewer Brad Perkinson will be milling about to answer your burning craft beer questions.

Thursday, March 7 The People's Last Stand will debut their new Thursday night Open Mic Night this week. Remember what Mom said: Go bold or go home.

Each Thursday night at The Libertine is Pint Night. This week the featured beer is from Community Beer Co., one of the newest craft beer purveyors in town.

Friday, March 8 Poetry night at Garden Café is baaaaaaack. Bring your best poetry and a bottle of wine for courage and enjoy a five-course meal in the garden. Doors open at 7 p.m. with dinner served at 7:45 and poetry readings at 9. Dinner is $65. Make your reservations by calling Garden Cafe at 214-887-8330.
