One of the new brunch options over at Boheme.

I'm not here to tell you how to live your life, I'm just saying that it's been beautiful the last few days and you should experience the nice weather for yourself before Houston weather decides to do Houston weather things. I hear that there's a music festival this weekend, and I hear there are some good reasons to check it out. After you check out this week's news, of course.

  • My favorite part of spring is the abundance of music festivals coming down the pipe. This year Goode Company Restaurants are getting in on the fun with the inaugural Goode Company Beerfest. It’s going to happen Saturday, April 21 over at Goode Company Armadillo Palace. At the very least, it’s the festival with the coolest mascot in town. Admission will run you $30. Breweries involved include Back Pew Brewing Company, Bakfish Brewing Company, Spoetzl Brewing, Oasis Texas Brewing Company, 11 Below, 8th Wonder Brewery, Holler Brewing Co, No Label Brewing Co, Deep Ellum, and Great Heights Brewing Company.
  • Looking for a brunch that’s a little more global in scope? Earlier today, Boheme put out the word that they’ve got a new weekend brunch menu full of flavors from around the world. New additions include oak-smoked barbacoa tacos and a petite steak and eggs with Argentinean-inspired chimichurri sauce and housemade refried beans. The most intriguing addition looks to be the Filipino biscuits and gravy, featuring smoked longanisa sausage. They’ve also added “loaded Topo Chicos” because everyone loves Topo.
  • Coming to Allen Center next summer is Guard and Grace, a modern American steakhouse. The brainchild of Denver chef and restaurateur Troy Guard, the Houston Guard and Grace marks his first expansion outside of Denver. “We chose to bring Guard and Grace to Houston because, similarly to Denver when we opened the first location, the city has this passion and energy that’s just contagious,” Guard said via press release.
  • If you thought you missed your chance for a $1.95 red beans and rice plate over at Treebeards Market Square, you’ll be happy to learn the deal has been extended to March 29. Go show them some love for 40 years in the game.
  • The Queen is back and, if the photos are any indication, more beautiful than ever. Voodoo Queen Daiquiri Dive returned last week after being on the shelf due to a fire back in September 2016, and we’re excited to experience the expanded menu for ourselves. (H/T
  • It was always only a matter of time before barbecue gelato came along. SweetCup Gelato has collaborated with El Burro & the Bull to introduce the world to the “El Burro’s Butterscotch BBQ.” Get ready to experience tangy tamarind barbecue sauce, house-smoked Texas pecans and smoked butterscotch working together to bring the worlds of gelato and barbecue together. What a time to be alive. (H/T Eater Houston
  • Torchy’s Tacos arrives in Cypress for the first time on April 2 with its new location at the Boardwalk at Towne Lake. Don’t act like you’re not excited.
