Beers for Boston at The Railyard
All weekend
4200 San Felipe

The Railyard (the bar which famously replaced the old Roll-In Saloon) is hosting a mini tap-takeover and charity event to support victims of the marathon bombing in Boston. Through the end of May, The Railyard will donate proceeds from the sale of all Sam Adams beers to the Greg Hill Foundation. Owner Trey Melcher has also promised that his family's foundation -- the Melcher Charitable Foundation -- will match everything raised, dollar for dollar.

9th Annual Empty Bowls
Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
4848 Main

The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft once again hosts one of the city's most unique fundraisers tomorrow afternoon. For a donation of $25, guests will receive one of 1,200 original ceramic bowls -- each hand-crafted by a local artist -- along with a simple lunch of soup, bread and water. Your $25 donation goes directly to the Houston Food Bank. According to Empty Bowls chairman Tom Perry, that $25 can "provide 75 meals; or from another perspective, it can feed 25 people in need three nutritious meals for a day."

We've got two dozen participating breweries (including all the local favorites) to keep you cool and food trucks to feed your face.
