Dirt Bar 
No matter your feelings on the holidays, all can agree drink specials are a good thing. Bring a new, unwrapped toy starting at 5 PM to Dirt Bar tonight for their annual Toys for Tots toy drive and enjoy a discounted libation or two.

The Pass & Provisions 
It's a Christmas miracle! Santa came early and delivered a happy hour at Provisions from 2:30-6 PM daily with drinks and snacks on the menu all priced under $10. Try the house punch at $5 a glass and follow it with a $7 braised greens and ricotta calzone.

D&T Drive Inn 
Get some "Late Night Noodles" at D&T's pop-up featuring the cuisine of Northern Thailand. As promised, noodle dishes will be served, specifically khao soi and Thai satay (and if you're as clueless as we are, just go, order and educate yourself). The menu is available starting at 8 PM until it sells out. Chef PJ Stoops, of upcoming restaurant Foreign Correspondents - a sibling to D&T - will be preparing the dishes.

Killen's BBQ Pop-up at Camerata 
Camerata's David Keck wasn't joking about the 'Syrahvolution.' A pop-up at the wine bar on Sunday will feature various brands of the varietal paired with barbecue from chef Ronnie Killen of supposed-to-open-this-month's Killen's BBQ in Pearland. Meat-eating and wine sipping begin at 4 PM.
