You say you want a revolution? Well, you know, I’m just here because somebody said there’d be food. I’ll leave you all to your talk of insurrection. If you need me, I’ll be over here putting out another week of Eat This Calendar
The original gathering of the food trucks (not to be confused with juggalos) ended its run of monthly events a while back, but H&8th now returns once a year to flood Midtown OKC with tons of mobile dining option, family friendly fun and sweaty camaraderie. The festival is, as always, centered around the corner of 8th Street and Hudson Avenue and runs from 5-10 p.m. Friday. More info here: https://h8thokc.com/
Visit the scenic Yukon District (it’s actually a whole city, but people around here love districts) from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday at Mollie Spencer Farm (1001 Garth Brooks Blvd.) for the Chisholm Trail & Crawfish Festival.
What do Cajuns have to do with the history of the Chisholm Trail? I’m not totally sure. But why fight a good time? Watch Old West reenactors while chowing down on Cajun foods and listening to some zydeco music. There are also pony rides and a petting zoo, if that’s your thing.
Ain’t nobody don’t not like enchiladas. So One-52 Bar and Grill (211 N. Trade Center Terrace, Mustang) is inviting you to put your recipe to the test from 6-9 p.m. Sunday. Participants must bring two 11'' x 13'' dishes of enchiladas with the winner receiving a cash prize.
Everybody else pays $5 to vote and eat.
Join the staff of The Barrel Room, 2808 N. Kelly Ave. Suite 400 in Edmond, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for a deep dive into the world of craft beer cocktails. Tickets are $45 each, available here.
Speaking of tasty craft beer, you won’t want to miss the Prairie Artisan Ales Beer Dinner, 7-10 p.m. Tuesday at McNellie’s (1100 Classen Drive, OKC).
The four-course meal includes beer pairings from Prairie. Tickets are $45. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat.
