For just $10, sign your dad up for a wine tasting class at Central Market.
Give Dad an early Father's Day gift by signing him up for the Wine Workshop: Wines for Father's Day -- "An ode to Dad" at Central Market this Monday, June 10, at 6:30 p.m. This demonstration class is run by the Central Market Beer & Wine Experts, who will take each participant on a tour through the different types of grapes used to make some of the best wines in the world.

If your father loves wine, he will definitely love this class. For an hour he will have the chance to taste several wines from regions throughout the world, like Kuleto Cabernet Napa, Domaine Arnoux Pinot Noir and Zuccardi A Series Malbec, just to name a few. Don't worry if Dad doesn't know much about how to taste wine, what he should be looking for or how the wines are made, because the beer and wine experts at Central Market will teach all these skills and techniques.

On Saturday, June 15, Texas Monthly Barbecue Editor Daniel Vaughn will be signing his book, Prophets of Smoked Meat: A Journey through Texas BBQ, at the Leibman's in West Houston at 1 p.m. and the River Oaks Bookstore at 4 p.m. Get your book signed and feast on barbecue from Gatlin's BBQ, which just so happens to be one of Vaughn's favorite Houston barbecue locations. Enjoy live music from the Kristine Mills Band and sip on free margaritas throughout the afternoon.

Head on over to the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center on Sunday, June 16, at 2 p.m. to learn everything you need to know about juicing. Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram of Rawfully Organic Co-op will teach you how to juice just about anything in her class, Eat It Raw: All About Juicing! For members of the Houston Arboretum, tickets cost $20, and for nonmembers, the cost is $30. Throughout the class, you will create juices from her recipes and taste everything the class makes. Learn how to use a juicer and create healthy, raw recipes.

Bistro Provence will host a five-course French Provence dinner paired with wines of Bandol on Tuesday, June 18, at 7 p.m. Indulge in classic French cuisine, starting with an amuse bouche of tuna and herb toast paired with Dupuy de Lome VDP Rose 2012, followed by beef carpaccio and a vegetable brochette with Domaine de Sorin Rouge 2009. Finish the night with a chocolate pot de crème with mint-infused cantaloupe and a Grenache 17 Bandol dessert wine. You will definitely want to reserve your spot at this lovely French wine dinner for $88 per person.

More charitably minded folks will find an event that helps support the families of the fallen fire-fighters.

On Sunday at Sorrel Urban Bistro, chefs prepare a wide range of dishes to sample, while wineries pour a great variety of wines. 100% of the funds go to the Firefighers Family, earmarked that way through THE 100 Club. $100 per person.
