Friday, 7-9 p.m.
512 W. 19th
It's finally here! The Menchie's Frozen Yogurt food truck is up and running and will have a grand opening party tonight from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Head out to 512 West 19th Street to enjoy froyo dispensed from the truck. This is the first frozen yogurt truck to hit the streets of Houston, so you don't want to miss out on its debut night. Maybe you'll be the lucky customer to win a free food truck party for 100 people. How cool is that?
Houston Chili Cook Off @ Eleven XI
Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

While the weather is not quite as chilly as it was earlier this week, it's still going to be cold enough to enjoy piping hot (and spicy) bowls of chili during the Houston Chili Cook Off, hosted by Houston Young Professionals, at Eleven XI. Tickets cost $5 if purchased in advance and $10 at the door. Sample the chili recipes from the competing teams while you enjoy drinks from Day of the Dead Beer and KAH Tequila. Judging takes place at 1 p.m., so stick around to see if your favorite chili wins.
