LOCAL Houston | The City Guide July 2017 - Page 10

ON OUR RADAR IT’S GOING DOWN AT SUNDOWN BEER, MUSIC AND FOOD AT THE GROVE ALL SUMMER Presented by Southwest Airlines ® , Sundown at The Grove returns for its sixth summer season with a new twist. Every Wednesday evening between July 5 and August 30, patrons will enjoy sam- ples from featured local craft breweries served with savory food pairings. Prefer wine over craft beer? Not a problem. Debuting this year, wine and food pairings will also be available – each week inspired by a popular Southwest Airlines destination! Menu items will be crafted by The Grove’s own talented Executive Sous Chef Ernesto Villareal, and will feature live action, made-to-order food stations. Spinning on the deck will be Houston’s known and loved dj, DJ Sun. Patrons can enjoy a bird’s eye view of Discovery Green and the Houston skyline from the air-conditioned Vista Room or on the open air deck. Cheers! Skoop is a dairy-free, gluten-free, guilt-free ‘skoop’ of indulgence created by Nékter Juice Bar’s research and development team. Made with only clean, plant-based ingredients, Skoop is a smooth and decadent frozen confection free of artificial colors, flavors and refined sugars. Both Houston Nékter locations hand-make Skoop daily in small batches to ensure freshness and consistency – with cashew milk, honey, agave nectar, coconut palm sugar and sea salt.
