Famed cocktail historian David Wondrich returns for a couple of events certain to sell out damn near immediately.

Going down at The Aviary, the ticket includes a signed, personalized copy of David Wondrich's Punch, passed bites, and several different punches showcasing the history of the "flowing bowl."

For Those With Big $$$ To Spare

Opening night for the much buzzed-about Rick Bayless in Cascabel: Dinner – Daring – Desire show at the Lookingglass Theatre just got amped up, so look for it to be the hottest ticket in town this spring.

The Frontera Grill chef/owner signed on for this production months ago, and we've been excited ever since. It's described as "an unforgettable theatrical adventure featuring a sumptuous feast, world-class circus acts, and a tantalizing love story starring celebrity chef Rick Bayless." Hey, what more do you need?!

A HOT Fried Chicken Eating Contest!

I hope The Southern's hot fried chicken is as GREAT as you'll find at Prince's Hot Chicken Shack in Nashville! (Photo: via

If you think you can handle the heat, sign up for The Southern's first-ever HOT Fried Chicken Eating contest, happening March 22.

If you don't know what HOT fried chicken is, then you haven't visited the South often. The spice is slathered on and incredible, but it doesn't hide the flavor. That's the key.
