Southside Espresso

Saturday, 8 a.m.
904-C Westheimer

Get your butt to Southside Espresso early Saturday morning so you can stuff your face with Rebecca Masson's delightful treats during her pop-up bake sale. She'll be selling a variety of classic pastries, such as butter croissants, pain au chocolat, and kouign amann. And in Fluff Bake Bar fashion, there will be more out-of-the-box items, such as kimchi croissants with bacon jam, speck and raclette (cheese) croissants with homemade mustard, and a poached plum financier. Pair anything with a warm latte or cappuccino from Southside for the ultimate breakfast.

Free Label-Saving Workshop @ French Country Wines
Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.
2433 Bartlett

Normally on Saturdays, French Country Wines provides all of the vino during the free wine tastings, but this Saturday, owners Phyliss Adatto and Tim Smith are asking you to bring a few of your favorite bottles -- just make sure they are empty. Craftsman Kenneth Wickman will show you how to remove the labels from each bottle to preserve them. Every two hours, beginning at 1 p.m., Wickman will demonstrate his easy label-removing techniques. And as always, there will be cheese from Houston Dairymaids paired with the wine samples.

Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow @ Southern Star Brewing Co.
Saturday, 8 p.m.
1207 N FM 3083 E, Conroe

Come watch Back to the Future at Southern Star Brewing Co, this Saturday night, presented by Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow. The movie starts at 8 p.m. and tickets must be purchased at the door. For $15, each person will get to watch the movie and will receive three pints of beer -- pretty sweet deal, right? The Delorean Car Club of Houston will be in attendance at the brewery to show off their cool cars, too.

Stand By Me Dinner Party @ Alamo Drafthouse Mason Park
Sunday, 6 p.m.
531 South Mason Road

Dinner and a movie is always a wonderful combination. Spend your Sunday evening at the Mason Park Alamo Drafthouse watching the 1989 "coming of age" film Stand By Me, while enjoying a three-course movie-themed meal. Tickets to this event cost $40 per person. Begin with an amuse of charred arbol marshmallows paired with Saint Arnold Santo (yes, beer is included!). The first course features an upscale ham sandwich with prosciutto, baby arugula, crispy leeks, sherry vinaigrette and roasted roma tomatoes stuffed between two sliced of toasted brioche, paired with Karbach Sympathy for the Lager. Next, sip on Buffalo Bayou 1836 while munching on beef tenderloin meatballs served in a pumpkin truffle broth topped with shaved Asiago cheese. The final savory course features a roasted bone-in pork chop topped with a sugarcane Coca-Cola glaze served with burnt ear of white corn and roasted Brussels sprouts, paired with No Label Ridgeback. Cap it all off with a slice of humble blueberry pie and Southern Star Buried Hatchet.
