Monday

$5 Specials at Max’s Wine Dive
The restaurant is celebrating its fifth birthday today, and chef Erica Beneke wants to share the wealth. She's offering a mini menu of “Five at the Dive” food and wine specials to thank Austin for a great five years. Think treats like green-chili hummus, bone-marrow butter popcorn, fried-chicken sliders and half and half (half of their famous brownie with half of their bread pudding), plus wines like their house Grenacha, Argam Cava and Paso o Paso. Plus, pick up a $55 wine package to enjoy at home. Come in from 11 AM to 12 AM to reap the rewards.
